How soon after the closing can I have my proceeds from the sale?

Updated March 13, 2023.

Funds cannot be released until the transfer is completed, which means when the transfer documents have been recorded in the County Clerk’s Office. This can take anywhere from several minutes to several days. Usually, the closing documents are recorded within several business hours after the closing. Once the closing documents have been recorded, the proceeds can be released.
