Hello, Generally speaking, once the bank receives the required documents needed to proceed there is generally a 3 day waiting period before the appraisal is ordered. Once the appraisal is ordered you should be contacted by the appraiser to schedule a date and time. If you add the three day waiting period plus a couple of days for the appraiser to contact you to schedule an appointment, I will estimate about 7 days. I sure hope this helps. Good luck!
