There's no typical anymore - with all the lender closings, existing lenders have really slowed down, also refinances take a back seat to purchases, unfortunately... So it just depends on the lenders workload and also if you have provided a complete loan package without any missing items - this could slow the process as well... Hope this helps!

 ... and purchases transactions should take a week and the agent should be able to show you at least 50 properties before you decide and they will negotiate their commission to 1%. 

Stand firm!

Regulations say it must take at least 8 days.
If your finances are in order, 8 days...if not, 2-4 weeks.
