How Long Does it Take to Buy a Home?

by Glenda Daughety & Team

Many people thinking about buying a home for the first time in Baton Rouge don’t realize how long the process will take them.  What people expect can vary wildly.  The length of the process in reality can be shortened or take longer depending on a few factors. In the end you need to be able to devote however much time it take to find the right home.

One factor is called contract-to-close.  This refers to the time period after you ratify the contract on your home. There are two possible timelines for this part of the transaction.  One is if you purchase with cash, the other if there’s a mortgage involved. A cash purchase can take as little as 2 weeks, as long as the closing attorneys perform the title search and prepare all the needed documents. 

If the contract is contingent on a mortgage, the process can take around 30-60 days.  And is it’s a loan that needs additional underwriting, it can take longer.

Add to this the fact that people usually shop for a home for about 30-60 days, this gives you an idea of the range of time it can take.  So the bottom line is that it can take as little as 30 days for some people, but for others it may take months. It all depends on your situation.
