It's usually 1-2 days to fund and another 24 to record. This is usually the time frame in California if everyone is doing their job correctly. I'm sure that you are close to the closing and congratulations!

Once the loan docs are signed, they are submitted to the processor for further review before being sent to the underwriter for approval. If everything is in order, you could have approval as quickly as 2 weeks. Most seem to require additional information that will need to be provided. Again, once the package is complete it is sent to underwriting to ensure all conditions have been met for final approval. Keep in mind, there are other divisions that are involved as well (i.e. insurance & title companies) that may effect the closing date. All in all the average process is usually 25-30 days.

As soon as your lending institution funds the loan and the seller provides clear signed title, as a rule 1 to 2 days . Your escrow gent will be able to tell you within hours of the closing time.

My experience is 2 to 3 days after you signed your loan documents in escrow. If you signed your loan docs with a mobile notary, it may take an additional day or two.

The purchasing process varies from state to state. In California, as Jay stated, it takes a day or 2 to fund and another to record. It depends on what time the funds are recorded as having arrived at the bank. Each bank has a cutoff time, after that time it is recorded on the next banking day.

If a loan must be funded, it's generally 24-48 hours to fund and another 24 to record. If you brought your proceeds to the signing, then maybe only 24 hours to record. Each lender, escrow officer, and County works at different paces.
