How Long Does the Mortgage Application Process Take?

Getting started with a mortgage application is an exciting prospect but the road to submitting these forms can be a long one if you aren’t prepared.

How Long Does the Mortgage Application Process Take?

The entire mortgage application process, from finding the mortgage you want to final approval, can take weeks – sometimes even longer. Developing a realistic timeline for mortgage applications is important. By doing some prep work, you will have a better idea of what to anticipate and be more efficient when filling out the paperwork.

Mortgage applications require specific information about your income, assets, and liabilities. Taking time to organize and prepare the appropriate documentation will accelerate the overall process, but you should still expect it be somewhat time-consuming and meticulous.

Fitting into a current mortgage loan program is the goal of any application process. Make sure all you credit information is accurate before you submit it to a lender for review. Your credit account directly correlates to how much of a down payment you can make on a house.

Don’t rush through the process. Personal finances are complex and must be submitted to a lender for review. Take time to make sure that everything is in order and has been reviewed accurately. Your credit report will have a big effect on the ensuing approval and buying process, so it deserves your full attention.
