He noted that the current time between the survey and the discovery of housing before closing the deal on it can usually take two to three months. At the same time, Zillow Group, the fund’s largest stock holding company, estimated that relocation costs could add $ 26,000 to $ 40,000 in additional house costs at an average price.

And because real estate is such a huge industry, these companies have great opportunities for that.”
