Buy a new vehicle or TV and you can go straight to Consumer Reports to learn which model is rated best in its class. Buy a home and you'll quickly learn that each is different. So how can you make the right choice?

Comparison shopping is the logical answer, but there's more to it than just looking at 5 different homes. Before beginning your home search, ask each family member to make a list of both "wants" and "wishes". The "wants" include features you need in a home like 4 bedrooms, or a convenient location, or a "mother-in-law suite". Wishes include the amenities you would like to find, but which are not an absolute must.


Combine all the lists into one, separating the items into wants and wishes. Next agree on the wishes you can do without. Remember that no one home will have everything on the list.

When you find a home which offers most of the "wants" and also includes some "wishes" - you'll be getting close to a final decision. At that point, conclude your search by verifying that the home also provides the quality of construction you are seeking.

First, know what you want in a home. Second, compare the homes that fit. Finally, make a firm decision on the home that satiffies your family. You'll know when you've found it!
