This Home Buyer Checklist gives you a direct comparison of important factors/features when comparing the homes you are considering for purchase.

This Checklist, along with pictures (if you have a camera to take with you), helps you to objectively determine which home meets your needs the best.

We suggest that you make several copies and take along with you when you preview homes.
