Leave a comment

If you are in the market to buy a home, one of the most important things you can do is make a checklist.  Here is a list of things you should do before you search for a home. 

1.  Be an informed buyer.  Gather information about the market.

2.  Become familiar with the mortgage process.  Get pre-qualified.

3.  Put together a budget.

4.  Decide on a home buying timeline.

5.  Determine your needs and wants.

6.  Find a good Realtor.

7.  Begin your home search. 

There are many home buyer’s checklists online if you are looking for a form to print out.  They are available in a variety of formats as well.   The typical checklist will include:  property address, price, taxes, neighborhood, interior and exterior detail, construction, and other detailed specifics. 

Check out some of these web sites for downloadable forms: 


Happy home hunting!
