Average closing time

Hey everyone,  we are in the process of a mortgage.   I'm looking for average length of closing time.  From the time of application, to pre-approval, and clear to close. Smiley Happy

May your limits be high and your balances low!

Re: Average closing time

I don't think you can count an average from preapproval very well.  You get preapproved before you go shopping for a house.  Who knows how long it will take you to find something you like and want to put an offer in on.  Once you have a ratified contract, 30 days to close is fairly standard.

Re: Average closing time

Closing is usually at the end of the month so between 30 and 45 days
