How long for Home Loan Pre-Qualification/Pre-Approval?


I'm about 95% sure this guys has just been fricking around on me......

How long does it generally take to get an asnwer on pre-qualification/pre-approval?

My wife and I want to know what we can and can't spend on a home before we go out and start making decisions.

It's coming up on 3 weeks now that this guy has had every bit of our paperwork this company required to make this determination.

Am I right? or is this a process that could have been done a long time ago? My wife called today and he said "he's done with '09 and is working on '10 and will call back within the hour."

Like I said, my guess is he hasn't done shite on this work.

Shouldn't take more than a couple of days at the absolute most.

Are either of you self-employed?

I can't give you an answer on how long it takes, I just know the industry has changed in the past couple of years. What used to take a couple of days now can take weeks or months. Alot of the mortgage companies cut back their employees.

If you brought in exact figures & gave me a rundown of assets, check-stubs, & I felt confident, and were in person or had it e-mailed to me ASAP?

I've done them in less than that timeframe.

Sent 'em through Desktop Underwriter, & had 'em basically stipped out in less than a day.

It's not hard. At all.

What your broker/loan officer is probably doing is stretching you out in his pipeline to create consistent income from the closing commission. He may have a ton of loans this month, & is feeling a little short in the shorts for June or July.

Seen it happen all the time. Got a lot of loans that way.

At my work when you purchase a house (new construction) you have 3 days to return with an approval letter.

It takes longer for poor people to get qualified.
