Kim - 30 days is somewhat long for getting the conditional approval, 3 weeks really should do it.....

Where there's truly a disconnect regarding these time frames is the difference between the written contract date and the actual date we receive the complete contract...This is usually a week or so.....there's also additional delays created when we need to wait for the pre-lim, copy of earnest funds check, title & escrow fees (our form that we need fully completed by the escrow officer so we can issue the new GFE)....

In spite of these delays, most realtors insist on trying to close a deal in 30 days or less, knowing full well that this process has been taking 45 - 60 days to close/record.....

Interesting question, keep em coming!

best, Jeff Marr
