Buying

How long does it take to close on a house?

I'm a mom, a wife, podcast junkie & Realtor. I help my clients go from overwhelmed by buying & selling at the same time to popping 🍾 and living their best life.

Hi! I"m Kaylynn.

How Long Does it Take To Close on a House?

How long it takes to close on a house depends on a number of different factors that are specific to you and your situation. The biggest factor has to do with the type of financing you’re getting or if you’re getting financing at all.

If you are getting a conventional loan and you’ve been pre approved, then most lenders can close your loan within 30 days, possibly 45. But that would be the longest timeline that I would expect to see in this market.

If you’ve been pre-underwritten or desktop underwritten, which means that you’ve gone further through the process with your lender, then they may be able to close sooner.

In fact, I’ve had clients that have closed in as little as 14 days.

Now, they have gone through the underwriting process, and they had the ability to waive quite a few of the contingencies that can sometimes lengthen the contract, but in that case, they were able to close in 14 days.

So how long it takes to close really depends on the lending options you have available to you.

Also, if you’re getting cash, then or if you’re using cash to purchase the home, then you may be able to close sooner.

In general, it takes about 30 to 40 days to close a home at this time, which is August 2021.

Now again, you could potentially close sooner or you may have a few extra days, depending on the financing that you’re getting. Now that you know how long it takes to close on a home, check out some of my videos that I’ve linked below that I think you will find helpful.

If you want specific information for you and your family in your scenario, feel free to book time with me.

There’s a link below this video for that as well, and I’d be happy to chat with you about what the options are and

just explore what can be possible for you and your family. I hope you guys are doing well, and I’ll see you in the next video.
