Once  home buyer has been approved for a mortgage loan, they need to make sure they don't jeopardize the loan by making any of the common mistakes listed below.  The lenders can and will rescind a loan offer and the buyer is left with no home.    

Common mistakes

• Making a big purchase. Big purchases, such as a new car or furniture, can change the buyer’s debt-to-income ratio that the lender used to initially approve the buyer’s home loan.
• Opening new credit. Buyers should avoid new credit card applications between approval and closing.
• Missing payments. Even bills in dispute should be paid on time between loan approval and closing.
• Cashing out. Avoid transferring large sums of money between bank accounts or making
undocumented deposits – both could send up “red flags” to a lender.

These mistakes truly are deal breakers and adversely affect your mortgage loan.  It is best to call your lender or me before making any big purchases or if you have any questions.
