How long does it normally take to close on a mortgage?
The length of time it takes to close on a mortgage can vary depending on a variety of factors. Key factors include type of mortgage, the lender, and the complexity of the transaction. The closing process for a mortgage typically takes 30 to 60 days. This timeline begins when the lender receives the completed application.
During this time, the lender will likely order an appraisal to determine the value of the property. They will also review your financial documents and credit history. They may also need additional documentation from you. This can delay the process if not promptly provided.
The lender will issue a final loan approval once they are satisfied with the information they have received. They will then prepare the closing documents.
Stay in contact with your lender throughout the process. Also, you may need to provide extra documents they may ask for. This will help ensure a quick and successful closing.
