Stage 1: Pre-Approval
The pre-approval stage can take around 10 business days if all documentation is submitted (use our pre-approval documentation checklist), all properties are identified accurately within the 1031 Exchange, and the property closes at an amount that enables the funding of an exchange. Schedule a meeting with one of our loan experts to learn more about your financing options and how to increase your chances for pre-approval.
Stage 2: Approval and Closing
Loan approval occurs at closing when the funds are approved to be transferred to the seller. In the case of a 1031 Exchange, the funds are transferred through escrow to the qualified intermediary, who applies the tax-free funds to the purchase of the acquired property.
