The property you buy will be much more than a house; it will be your home. The following questions can help you describe the things that are most important to you in your ideal home and neighborhood.

  2. Who will be living in your household? Will you often have other family members or friends visiting for more than a few days at a time?
  3. If you will be working outside your home, what would you consider a comfortable commute (in time or distance)? Will you be working at home?
  4. What are the most important activities for the members of your household? For example, hobbies, recreation, school, entertaining,religious or cultural activities.
  5. What are one or more features you liked most about homes you have lived in previously? This might include style: floorplan, yard, view, and neighborhood.
  6. What is something you disliked about the house or neighborhood where you have lived previously, and that you would want to avoid in your next home?
  7. What are the most important “must have” features of your ideal home and neighborhood? Why are they important?
