Home Buyer Checklist Notes

The Home Buyer Checklist identifies some of the important factors to consider when choosing a home. In addition to an affordable sales price, you will also want to be sure that the neighborhood and house meet the needs of your family.

Take this checklist along when you go shopping for your house. It will help you evaluate the neighborhoods and assess the availability and condition of various features of up to three homes in a side-by-side comparison. Click here to print this page.

What would your ideal home look and feel like?

Let me help you find the home your head and heart envision and assure your interests are protected throughout the entire process. The more you share with me about what your dreams and realities entail, the better I can use my expertise to help you find exactly what you’re looking for. And if you don’t exactly know yet, that’s fine, too. I’ve developed this questionnaire to be sort of your sketchpad to explore with. Please feel free to elaborate on what your dreams look and feel like. Have fun and remember, you can always come back and erase and re-draw them any time you like. Note: This information will be held in strict confidence. It will be used solely to help me find what you’re looking for, without wasting your time.
