Ultimate Home Buyer’s Checklist

Buying a house is very exciting, in order to help you decide what is important to you and your family, making a checklist is a must.

The Weichert Real Estate group has created an excellent wishlist that we’ve recreated below.

It’s helpful to think of your requirements in three columns – needs, wants and wishes. Needs are features that are must-haves. Wants are amenities that may not be must-haves, but are key factors in your decision-making process. Your wish column will help define the gap between the home of your dreams and the home you can afford.
