Austin House Hunting

Things to Look For

All home buyers - whether new to the process or experienced - want to buy their dream house. And, it's common to become overwhelmed with all the homes in Austin, Texas that seem like good candidates (price, no. of bedrooms, etc.).

So, to help you narrow down your "good enough" list from online to the list of houses you visit, take this Home Buyer Checklist along when you go shopping for your house. Highlight the items that are most valuable to you. It'll help you put a home's features into perspective and use practical ways to measure the homes you've been seeing. Filling in this list, you can see all at once the features of two or three homes. Click here to print this page.

Note: Buying a house is a new experience, but not an easy decision. I can give you advice about choosing the place that's your best fit. Call IREAF, LLC, Austin's real estate expert, at 512-241-1707 and I can help you get on the right track to the house of your dreams.
