Home Buying in Sacramento>Question Details

Danielle, Home Buyer in Auburn, CA

I am wondering what the current turnaround time is for a usda loan?

Asked by Danielle, Auburn, CA Sun Apr 21, 2013

Our lender is wells Fargo, we are still in the underwriting stage with them then still need approval from usda but have sold our current house already and have to move next friday. At this point we don't know where we are moving, to our new home or to a storage unit while we wait. Any advice? Thanks!

With the spike in rates, the current backlog that USDA experienced earlier in the year has lessen to about 30 days to complete a USDA loan.

Good Luck Danielle.

Total closing time from contract acceptance to close is around 40 days. USDA's portion of this can be 3 days to 2 weeks depending on your state. CA is generally about a week..

Depends on several factors! If the loan officer is not well versed on USDA loans it will take longer.

45 day contracts are what I usually write for USDA buyers. Some loans get to docs in 35 or so others I have had to get 5-7days of extension on our purchase contracts due to a USDA UW delay. When did your process start?

There's standard processing times that USDA tries to make but that assumes that they have everything that they need from you, when they need it. That's not always possible. Plan for the worst, and hope for the best. 45 days is the standard time to close a USDA loan.

Good luck.

Hi Danielle,

For standard conventional or FHA loans the time is around 30 days but for USDA you should plan on 45 days from acceptance of your offer till closing. In writing an offer, we have to either put an exact closing date or enter the number of days after acceptance that it will be closed by. Look at your contract and see what your agent put for that as most times they will know what your lender needs for closing on the different loans.

Best of luck that it is almost there!

The average wait time for the USDA to issue Loan Commitments in CA are 5-7 working days.

Best of Luck!
