It's a given that consumers shopping for real estate - whether they're first time buyers or experienced homeowners - want to buy their ideal home. And, it's very easy to lose sight of your goals with all the houses in that look like possibilities (list price, location, etc.).

So, to help you prioritize your "contender" list from the computer to the list of places you visit, take this checklist along when you go house hunting. Highlight the items that are most important to you. It'll help you put a home's features into perspective and use sensible ways to measure the houses you're seeing. Keeping this list handy, you can judge the characteristics of up to three houses. Click here to print this page.

Buying a house is a big deal.  We can give you home buying tips on choosing the place that's going to be your first home. Contact me and I can help you make the decision that leads you to the house of your dreams.
