Here's a partial list of things to know or do to occupy that new home.
Get to know your lender really well and stay in touch until you get a "clear to close."
Lock in your rate.
Obtain home insurance.
Choose a title company and get wiring instructions.
Title insurance and survey.
Know time and place for settlement.
Hire a home inspector, schedule time, and attend.
Schedule other inspections... well, septic, radon, termite, roof, etc.
Review the reports and ask for necessary repairs.
Order and pay for the appraisal.
Review, in the allotted time, Condo, or Home Owner Association documents.
