Lender turnaround times- what this means for you

It’s understandable why people may be thinking of dipping their toe into the property market. Mortgages are available at historically low interest rates and in some areas paying off a mortgage appears to be more economical than renting! 

With a recent influx of market activity and most financial institutions still working from home, home loan approval wait times can be lengthy. This can delay a sale from becoming unconditional if subject to finance which can be a stressful time for all parties involved.  

With Christmas fast approaching now is the time to get moving (both sellers and buyers) to secure your new home and have an unconditional sale before the banks start to ‘wrap up’ for the year.
