The Painted House


The Home Buyer 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.

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
