Zillow Advice: Selling Process - What is the average time to close a VA loan? FHA loan? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/What-is-the-average-time-to-close-a-VA-loan-FHA-loan/441839/ Zillow Advice | Zillow Real Estate I am the seller, and my house ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/What-is-the-average-time-to-close-a-VA-loan-FHA-loan/441839/ I am the seller, and my house needs no repair. I am currently on 60 days waiting to close, and counting. I just signed a 2nd extension. I have cancelled my mover 3 times, and may lose the place I was going to lease. I am retiring, and moving out of state. I have been told by the lender that the under-writer is the hold up...."guess what"... did you think I did not know that the under-writer works for you, the lender! The last reason was they have to get the appraiser to make some minor changes, and we should close this Friday(3/27). I just believe they have no sense of urgency, and they just don't care. I work on weekends, so should they.

My broker is also his on this house so she is getting higher commission.&nbsp; <br/><br/>My buyer is getting USDA and his "buyer" is getting VA loan which he states is 60 days.<br/><br/>I am worried with all going on that his "buyer" will bail out and I will have lost 2 months in a market where I am already in the market for 3 months.<br/>I also am paying mortgage on this empty house so not very happy.

The lender that I use closes my FHA deals in 21 days and V.A loans it takes him 30 days to close. If the lender knows what they are doing I don't see a reason why it would take 60 days.
