Zeroing in on your next home can be fun and exciting. But it can also be tiring and confusing.
So before you start looking at properties, write down what you want in your new home. Start with the size of the home, number of rooms, most convenient layout, and desirable features. Prioritize the list, noting beside each item whether it is “nice to have” or a “must.”
Plan for the Foreseeable Future
As you make your list, consider how long you will likely be in that home and how your family and lifestyle may change over time.
Keep Your Goals in Mind
Bring you list with you when we plan the first home-shopping tour, or just email them to us.
Be a Comparison Shopper
As you preview each property, jot down how it compares with your list. Fill in the blanks as you see fit – Yes/No, Good/Fair/Poor, etc. Keep your notes on each property to compare homes until you find the the right one. Also note the features you would like to change with each home.

Feel free to print off as many copies as you want before you visit homes, bring it along with you, and make your job a little easier! After you start seeing a lot of homes, they start to blend together. Hopefully, this little tool will help you compare homes and guide you to your next home!
