For a GA Dream mortgage, 45 days would pretty much be the minimum. You really should plan on 45-60 days for a closing where down payment assistance is being used. As of today, DCA is doing the initial review of files received 10 business days ago. A lender can only send the file to DCA once it has been pretty much fully approved. All of this makes a 30 days closing virtually impossible.

Georgia Dream is currently working on files delivered 12 days ago. Your lender would have an appraisal completed, underwriting finished and cleared to close in two weeks. Not writing that it can't happen, but those tasks often take a while. I too would plan on 45 to 60 days.

45 Days is pretty much the minimum - if your lender does not have experience w GA Dream, it can be longer.

I would not make plans that don't allow for at least that time frame.

Getting a GA Dream loan is more complicated than getting a regular loan. There is more paperwork and particular requirements for you and your loan officer. I have worked with a lender who has a lot of experience with GA Dream and she says 45 days is the minimum.
Good luck!

I would say give it a minimum of 45 days. it may be possible to get it done in 30 days I just haven't seen it.
