Experience with Naturalization time

I attached a file that was very useful for me many years ago when I obtained my permanencia.

[Link removed since it seems to prevent the posting]

It is from 2010 and may be outdated in some things. I realize that discussion boards rise and fall and the ones that were useful to me seem to be abandoned today.  So I hope to find help here and to exchange some knowledge.

I have the following questions:

1. How long does the processing of the naturalization take?
2. Are there cities where the processing time is faster?
3. Does the PF still do home visits?
4. All kind of advise and reports are welcome.

Best, Michael
