Wants And Needs Wishes And Must Haves

Image title

Dreaming of owning a new home?  

Visualize, make a plan and take action.  

Most home buyers have a pretty good idea of what type of home they are dreaming about.  Illustrating that vision and idea to your Realtor*/Guide is another story.


Create a home buying checklist of the features that you want and need and determine what is feasible, staying realistically in the budget of course. 

 I've created a basic check list to get you started.  Print them out, add features and ideas that arise while filling out the starter list.

Send it back to your realtor or agent and see how you move to the top of their list.
