How long does a mortgage preapproval last?

Most preapproval letters are good for 60 to 90 days depending on your lender. This window should give you plenty of time to house hunt, but if you don’t find anything or don’t have a bid accepted within that time, you’ll have to start the process over again. Be sure to ask your lender what the exact time frame is.
