Podcast: Why are loans taking longer?

August 3, 2009 Podcasts No Comments


It’s a waiting game…

If you’re in the middle of a real estate transaction, you don’t need me to tell you that mortgage loans are becoming difficult to get pushed through, even after the buyer is “pre-approved” for a loan.    There are two primary reasons why this is happening:

  1. New appraisal laws.
  2. Tightened guidelines for loan underwriters.

The can result in delay that can range from several days to weeks for the final approval of a home loan.    This means that the planned escrow close dates are being delayed, which frays the nerves of both the buyers and the sellers (and the agents!)
