Do inform your loan officer if you will be out of town during the loan process
Do consult with your loan officer before making cash deposits into your banking accounts
DO GET PAPERWORK requested by your loan officer to them as soon as possible (paperwork delays = closing delays)

Don’t open new credit lines – no new autos, furniture, or any type of deferred financing
