How long does the buying process take? Before getting started on the process, it’s crucial to have an understanding of how long it’s going to take.


In our current market, it will take 30 to 45 days for the bank to process your loan. Unless you’re a cash buyer, you know that the buying process is going to at least take 30 days. On average, it takes 30 days for a person to find the right home, so you also need to take that length of time into account.


If your credit score isn’t where you need it to be, it’s important to devise a strategy to increase it. The best thing to do is to set an appointment with us and our lenders, so we can get the process moving. The longer you wait to start the process, the longer it’s going to take. So even if you’re unsure of the exact date you want to move by, we highly recommend getting the process started.

 If you have any questions about this process, or if you need real estate assistance of any kind, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us. We would love to hear from you!
