What possession date should one should put in the offer to purchase?

As stated before, taking possession of your first or any property is one of the best parts of the deal. Although any time of the month which works for both the buyer and seller is acceptable, you should consider certain repeating factors in your decision. Choose a date which is not in the first 3 business days of the month. These are usually the busiest for renters, movers, accountants, property managers and other professionals in the industry. You may also wish to avoid the last 3 days of the month for the above mentioned reasons. I like to choose between the 10th and 20th if at all possible as it is right in the middle and should cause the least amount of interruptions for everyone.
