Making a House Hunting Wish List

House hunting can be exciting, but it can also be overwhelming.  By making a wish list, you can take some of the guesswork out of house hunting, so you can focus on the most important part:  finding the best fit.


Your house hunting wish list should have 3 columns:

  • Must have
  • Like to have
  • Won’t put up with

These different columns can include everything from key features (like location, price, number of bedrooms) to specific (like a fireplace, pool, distance from public transit of shopping and restaurants)  Make sure to include boxes beside each item so you can make copies and check off applicable items while you’re viewing a house.


Of course, while it is important to know what you want, it is equally important to be flexible.  Most buyers don’t get everything on their wish lists.  Instead, keeping a structured list can all you to weigh the pros and cons of each house, so you can select the one with the best combination of features for you.
