Frequently asked questions

How quickly can I close my loan?

Better Mortgage usually closes loans between 3-6 weeks after rate lock.

The exact timing depends on a few factors, including how quickly you can submit all required documents, as well as the timing of third-party services.

The most common situation that requires a longer time to close is a refinance where the borrower has a second mortgage that needs to be subordinated.

If your loan happens to have more complicated circumstances and will take longer to close, your loan officer will discuss this with you when it’s time to lock your rate, and you may agree to a longer lock period.
