When viewing properties, please keep in mind that although this may be a very emotional time,

  • Do… view the process as a business decision.
  • Bring checkbook for Earnest Money and Option Money
  • Allot time to submit offer
  • Do… rate each property on a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being the perfect home. Please note that typically, perfect homes are hard to find so, any home that rates an 8 or 9 should be strongly considered as a home to submit and offer on.

As you rate each property, consider:

  • The neighborhood
  • The property curbside appeal
  • First impression when you enter the home
  • Property finish out
  • Repairs needed, if any
  • Size of home relative to your needs

After viewing a property, please rank properties by 1st, 2nd, 3rd or 4th purchase choice. Any property that slips to 5th or higher should be discarded.
