A wish-list is an important item to have when searching for your dream home. It not only allows you to list your must-have requirements (i.e. area, number of bedrooms, bathrooms), but it helps you lay out potential wants and wishes, too (i.e. 2 car garage, pool). Provided is a sample checklist, courtesy of the National Association of REALTORS®, to reference when putting together your dream home wish-list. As always, Freestyle Real Estate agents are always available to discuss your real estate needs.
