Buying a Home - What should I look for when walking through a home?

In addition to comparing the home to your minimum requirement and wish lists, use this Home Scorecard and consider the following:

  • Is there enough room for both the present and the future? 

  • Are there enough bedrooms and bathrooms?

  • Is the house structurally sound?  

  • Do the mechanical systems and appliances work?  

  • Is the yard big enough?  

  • Do you like the floor plan?  

  • Will your furniture fit in the space? Is there enough storage space? (Bring a tape measure to better answer these questions.)  

  • Does anything need to repaired or replaced? Will the seller repair or replace the items?  

  • Imagine the house in good weather and bad, and in each season. Will you be happy with it year-round?

Take your time and think carefully about each house you see. Ask your real estate agent to point out the pros and cons of each home from a professional standpoint.
