This real estate blog will let you dream a bit.  While your opinions on the type of home you want to own may change during the homebuying process, use this easy checklist to help you prioritize and make the shopping process less time consuming.  The large number of active and "For Sale" homes we are experiencing presently may lend itself to finding many of these "ideal" priorities incorporated in many of the homes in your area.  Also, an article published on CNNMoney.com on March 5th, states that," Home values have declined across the country, giving homebuyers the best buys they've had since 2004..."  http://money.cnn.com/2008/03/04/real_estate/markets_less_overvalued/index.htm?cnn=yes   So let's go!

Matt - I have something similar for buyers.  It is so important for them to prioritze.  While it would be wonderful to find all of their wants in a new home it MIGHT not be feasible sometimes.  Thanks for the post!
