Hi Kate,
Generally speaking it does not take 15 days for an appraisal to be done. Likely the required pre-appraisal events did not happen in a timely fashion. Once you're lender has received an executed (signed) purchase agreement, your lender can start the process. In any type of lender mediated transaction, it may take weeks for the fully executed signatures to occur. Most lenders won't risk ordering/paying for the appraisal up front. Some have the buyer pay for it upfront (non-refundable). When that happens... It's usually done in a couple of days... Money talks.. Likely there were still some issues in this agreement with respect to contingencies etc. Best of luck with your purchase. ... more
