Keeping Score While House Hunting

Feb 7, 2011

By Staff writer State Farm™ Employee

Buying a house is a huge decision. You’re committing not only time but also years of your life to a place. When you’re out looking at houses, though, it’s easy to be confused. They start to run together after a while. Which one had the orange bathroom tile? Was that the one with the weird fourth bedroom? One of them had a great yard. Which one was it?

It helps to take notes about each house that you visit. To make it easy for you, we’ve prepared a home comparison scorecard that you can download, print out, and use to jot down information about the size, rooms, systems, and expenses associated with each house that you visit. Then, when you need to narrow your choices, you’ll be able to do so with the right information at hand.
