DIDN'T NOTICE THIS IS FROM JULY!

Tom, The new regulations requires the appraiser to send the NOV(notification of value) within 5 days. (LAPP)(Lender Appraisal Processing Procedure).
If they can't do it in 5 days they have to say why they can't do it and send it to someone else who can.

As long as you have all documentation in place and your COE can be readily found a closing can be done within 30 days-  No problem-  ((Many times the VA must be faxed a request for it as the COE is not listed exactly as it should be.))

I'd recommend planning on a 30-60 day escrow for closing to occur

Florida isn't an escrow state; app to close in Fla is about 21 to 30 days

I'd recommend planning on a 30-60 day escrow for closing to occur. Depending on the property, if it is on well and septic, water testing is required and a septic inspection is required. These items can take more time compared to a property that's on city water and sewage.

Hope this helps.

Best,

Steve

VA had streamlined their process over the years 3-4 weeks is reasonable if the home passes appraisal the first time and your mortgage broker gets your all the new documents in time.  We have a lot of VA loans being so near Mac Dill Airforce Base - give Kevin Reeves a call at 813-728-4992 or by email kevinsreeves@gmail.com he has been doing VA, FHA and USDA in Florida for the last five (5) years.

Thanks.

Should be able to go from application to close in 30 days.  VA loans take no longer than any other type of loan.

Hi,

The wait times are acceptable.  The bottleneck is usually the appraiser and that can take anywhere from 1 1/2 weeks to 3 1/2 weeks.  All other processes run OK.  Rates are in the 5's.  Rate is always a moving target - with volotility in the markets.  Hope that helps.
