Help the community by answering this question:


I typically write up a contract for someone with a mortgage contingency with a 45-60 day window from the time I write it up, to the closing date.
First, you need time to negotiate the contract and for both parties to come to an agreement on the terms. Typically less than a week. Then you need time for attorney review, which is also typically less than a week. Then, you have home inspections which have to be done within 10 days out of attorney review and then there could be negotiations on any issues that arise there. Possibly taking another 14 days total.
Once these issues are resolved, typically an appraisal is ordered and that takes another week from the order date to the report being received and reviewed by the bank. Hopefully, there are no appraisal issues, but they are pretty common these days. (where an appraisal comes in for less and then you have to deal with it!)
Most of the time when there is a delay in closing, it has to do with the bank more than anything else. Have your agent get involved and speak with your mortgage rep to see what can be done (if anything) to expedite the process for you.

With historical mortgage rates, lenders are double checking everything and taking their times before they approved anybody. Normally, lenders can take up to 30 days to close, after you provide them with your financial conditions and documents.

Best of Luck,

Yes, 45 to 60 days is very doable. Another important time consideration is the time needed to get your mortgage commitment - banks generally need 30 days to complete that task.

Hi Bsh,

Normally you are looking at 45-60 day closing period as long as everything goes well with respect to Home Inspection, Title work, how quick you submit your paperwork for mortgage etc,. Just beware that the Lenders are swamped with lots of Re-financing and it is taking a little longer than what it use to be few years back.

For any questions, Please feel free to contact me at my Cell# 732-277-9321.

Enjoy !!

I don't quite get what you mean. In your purchase contract there is always a date for the closing to occur. Typically it's 60-90 days from time of sigining contract.

What I am unclear about is if putting your home on the market has anything to do with the closing. Do you need to sell that house for the 20% down payment?

What does "a lender who is young" have to do with how you get a final mortgage commitment? Banks have their own protocols and procedures which all representatives have to follow. Perhaps if you were more specific about WHAT the actual reasons for the delay is, you can get a more specific answer to your question.

Delays happen often, but tehre are so many reason WHY they can occur, we really need more info from you :)

My colleges are correct but if the appraiser of or the buyer hold up some paperwork it could take longer.
Then the seller side could hold things up if there are any liens or other surprises.

45-60 days is normal, but 30 days is possible.

With a 20% down conventional loan in our area you can close in as little as two weeks. But I'd say the "norm" is thiry days.
