At Hometown Mortgage, the process can take two weeks, depending on loan program. The stigma is that buying a home takes months. However, if you’re committed and responsive, it certainly doesn’t need to take that long. By starting out with a clear understanding of the overall process, we can help move things along at a great pace. Staying on top of document requests, being upfront with your Mortgage Consultant, and working closely with your Realtor helps the process go smoothly.
