Closing Your Loan Quickly

There is no set amount of time it takes to close a mortgage. All loans come with their own challenges and changes in the market can affect how quickly a bank can process your loan. On average, it takes around 30-45 days to close a loan. It’s easier to close a loan quickly when the buyer offers everything requested by the lender upfront. There are other behaviors that should be avoided during the home loan process as they may slow the process or completely ruin your eligibility:

 

  1. Do not acquire any new credit. This includes credit cards, vehicles, and appliances.
  2. Do not change the terms on any of your existing credit.
  3. Do not quit your job or start a new job.
  4. Don’t make large money transactions to or from your bank account.
  5. Don’t fall behind on any of your bills, including those in dispute.
  6. Don’t accept cash as gifts without documenting the necessary paperwork.

 

Avoiding these things can help ensure your loan is closed quickly and without any added dilemmas.

 

It’s helpful if you have the required documents ready for your lender before your loan is started. There are some documents you can have available:

 

  1. Tax returns. Most lenders will require at least two years of federal tax returns, but different situations may call for more or less.
  2. W2s or 1099s for all jobs. The lender may require one year or more, depending on your job and pay history.
  3. Color copies of your IDs.
  4. Award letters if you’re receiving any federal assistance or military pay.
  5. Current bank statements for all accounts. The lender may require multiple months.
  6. Mortgage statements if you currently own another property

 

Because no two loans are the same, additional or fewer documents may be required of your lender. These are just some standard forms that will likely be helpful.

 

Having all requested documentation available for your lender when they ask for it is important to getting your loan closed quickly. There are many documents that you must obtain yourself, so it’s important to be on time with presenting the necessary items. Even loans like FHA, USDA, and VA that typically close quickly can be held up by missing paperwork or a change in the buyer’s eligibility.

 

It’s also a good idea to familiarize yourself with your credit situation before seeking a lender. Knowing what’s on your credit report will help you answer any questions your lender may have. If you notice any discrepancies when you review your report, you will also have the opportunity to address them before applying for a mortgage. Sometimes the lender will require you to address discrepancies, collection accounts, judgements, and delinquent accounts before they proceed with your application.
