Buying

While your opinions on the type of home you want to own may change during the home buying process, use this easy checklist to help you prioritize and make the shopping process less time consuming

  • What areas/ neighborhoods would you prefer? Consider drawing a boundary line of the area(s) you would like to stay in
  • What school district(s) do you want to be in or near?
  • Do you want a one-story, two-story house? What architectural style(s) of homes do you prefer? 
  • What age of a home would you prefer? How old is “too old?”
  • Would you prefer a “turn key” home or one that needs a little work? How much repair or renovation would you be willing to do?
    Do you have special facilities or needs that your home must meet?
  • Do you require a fenced yard or other amenities for your pets?
