it really depends on the lender you select, but we are averaging under 30 days.

It varys from loan agent to loan agent and lender to lender! Generally, it should be no more than 30 days and often less.

It depends on a few variables. A HECM for Purchase can usually take easily less than thirty days, unless you are waiting to sell a home and use the process for the down payment. A HECM refinance should take less than thirty days, if you provide all documentation up front that is necessary to get the loan moving. Also if the home has no repairs issues that have to be done prior to closing.

Generally 30 days or less. The key is completing the counseling requirement asap. CBC would be happy to discuss.Lending Nationwide. VA, FHA, USDA, FNMA, FMAC, Reverse, Commercial, SBA, Jumbo. 877 890 3892 / john.bates@cbcnationalbank.com

Most lenders are completing HECM's in 30 days or less. You may see a closing take longer in hot markets due to slower appraisal turn times (purchase transactions will take priority)and if there are any title issues. You should be safe to allow yourself up to 45 days.

For most HECMS, you can close inside of 30 days, however some can take longer if an issue pops up.. title problems, property deficiencies problems, etc, etc..

You should expect to close within 30 days. This is typical as long as you have taken the approved counseling and supplied all of the necessary documentation in a timely manner.
