I am in the process of selling my house, I’m trying to go to closing before the nine days.
What about closing on a house during the nine days, but the purchaser won’t move in till after the nine days?

Would cost the seller money out of pocket if closing is delayed 10 days.

Answer:

A person should limit his business dealings in the Nine Days, and this includes such dealings as selling a house.

However, if this will cause a loss, it is permitted to perform whatever business dealings are required to avert losses.

Whether the  buyer moves in or not does not make a difference concerning the act of selling, which is permitted either way, if required.
