How long does it take to get my loan application approved?

Not long at all! You can expect to hear back on the status of your personal loan application within one business day. Because steps required to close on a personal loan product vary, wait periods may fluctuate. On average, expected timeframes are:

  • Auto loans: Can be completed within one business day, if lender has required documentation.
  • RV loans: Can be completed within one business day, if lender has required documentation.
  • Boat loans: Can be completed within one business day, if lender has required documentation.
  • Home Equity loans: May take up to four weeks to close, including required wait period of 10 days from date of application.

We encourage you to ask a personal lender of timeline expectations in your initial communications to best prepare expectations.
