Home Comparison Checklist

The biggest secured investment is a house. With that choice comes a lot of thoughtful decision-making when it comes to picking a home to live in. Using the Home Buyer's Checklist provided helps you compare all of the features of different homes and helps you identify what you care about in a house.

To help you streamline your "likes" list from the computer to the list of places you visit, take this checklist along when you go house hunting. Put an emphasis on the items that are most important to you. It'll help you put things into perspective and use true to life ways to measure the homes you're evaluating. Keeping this list handy, you can see at a glance the characteristics of two or three homes. Click here to print this page.
