House Hunting List

The most important source of capital is real estate. With that choice comes a lot of careful decision-making when it comes to deciding on a home to live in. Using the Home Buyer's Checklist here will help you understand all of the features of many homes and helps you get down to what really matters to you in a home.

To help you narrow down your "contender" list from the computer to the list of places you tour, take this checklist along when you go shopping for your home. Put an emphasis on the items that are most important to you. It'll help you put things in line and use sound ways to measure the homes you've been picking out.
