  Searching for that perfect home is a fun, exciting and time consuming  journey.   At the end of a long day of previewing home after home, it can be overwhelming too.  Here are a few ideas to help you remember what you saw that day, and to narrow that list down to homes that truly have your interest.

  1.  Digital Camera.  When you  look at 10 homes in a day, chances are you won't remember alot of details about every one.  Take pictures, and ALOT of them.  Start with a photo of the listing sheet and then proceed to take photos of things you like and dislike about the property.  This way at the end of the day, you can sit down and slowly go over each property one by one.  Don't forget that with alot of today's smartphones, a camera is ALWAYS readily available.

  2.  Make a checklist. Rank items as Excellent, good, fair and poor.

Kitchen

Bathroom(s)

Roof

Furnace

Air Conditioning

Master Bedroom

Plumbing

Floors

Basement

Electrical

Windows

Exterior of house

  Also include custom items that you want in the property such as : a fireplace, garage, deck, pool etc.

     3.  TAKE NOTES. 

  I hope these ideas will help you in this wonderful adventure!!  HAPPY HUNTING!
