Home buyers checklist

The Home Buyers Checklist identifies some of the most important buying factors to be considered when buying a home. In addition to an affordable home buying price, you'll also want to be sure that the neighborhood and home meet the needs of your family.

Take this Home Buyers Checklist with you when you are going to buy a home. It will help you evaluate the neighbourhoods and assess the availability and condition of various features of up to three homes in a side-by-side comparison.
