How Long Does it Take to Close on a New Home? 

Copy of April 2022 Social Media Templates

Let’s talk about how long it takes to close on a home. 

You found your dream home and you’re ready to move in ASAP. Not so fast! These things take time. Here’s why: The actual time it takes to close escrow on a house could be between 4-6 weeks. This is because it now takes between 30-45 days to fund a loan. And while you’re waiting for the loan money, you’re also waiting for the title company, appraiser, inspector, and termite as well. 

Here’s some ways you can speed up that timeline:

Step #1 – Know exactly what you want in a house 

  • Do your homework before you even start looking. That way, we can save time and only look at the homes that fit your exact criteria. 

Step #2 – Find a great real estate agent and loan officer 

  • Finding good people to help you from the start, will make the entire process run smoothly, which will also help to make things happen as quickly as possible. 

Step #3 – Work with your loan officer to figure out exactly how much you can afford 

  • This is a big one. One of the most common reasons for delays is when buyers don’t qualify for financing. Making an offer for a property without getting a financial pre-qualification can be a major mistake. 


By taking these three steps, you’re already ahead of the game. And that’s where I can help. By using a good real estate agent, we can make the process as painless as we possibly can.
