Home Buyer / Investor Checklist

The Home Buyer / Investor Checklist identifies some of the important factors to consider when choosing a home. In addition to an affordable sales price, you will also want to be sure that the neighborhood and house meet the needs of your family or investment goals.

Take this checklist along when you go shopping for your house. It will help you evaluate the neighborhoods and assess the availability and condition of various features of up to three homes in a side-by-side comparison. To PRINT this page, hit control-P. Questions ? http://www.aaronappraisal.net/
