The checklist format is an easy way to evaluate and compare the homes
you'll visit. You can compare as many as you like, and at a glance,
tell which ones best meet your overall needs. Download the checklist
and personalize it as necessary.
As the number of homes visited grows, you'll probably have difficulty
remembering the details of each one. Take pictures, noting the address
and you'll have an accurate record that will help you make a final
decision. A digital camera is a valuable tool to help with this, and
if you don't own one, prices start under $30.
Review the checklist and
add anything you wish. Remember to put anything that will add to the
comfort and enjoyment of your new home. Assigning a numerical score
for each category helps in the ultimate analysis. By totaling the
scores it's easy to see which homes have the best potential; then
you can make an informed decision.
