Do I need to bring anything along when I'm looking at homes?
Bring a notebook and pen for note taking and a flashlight for seeing enclosed areas. Be prepared to "snoop around" a little. You want to know as much as possible about the home you buy. Sellers understand that their home will be looked over pretty thoroughly.
Don't forget to bring along your Home Buyer's Workbook as a reference guide when you are looking at homes. The pages in the back of the book allow you to make notes on specific homes, which will make it easier to remember the specifics about each home. If you need to go back to a home for another look, The Humphrey Team will be happy to schedule an appointment. Be sure to ask any questions you have about the home, even if you feel you're being nosy--you have a right to know. It's important to know that the seller will supply the buyer with a Residential Property Disclosure, which will disclose any defects known by the seller. A copy of this form is found towards the back of the Home Buyer's Workbook.
Also, be sure to bring a camera and snap some pictures of all the homes you like. That'll make it easier to remember specifics.
