Before you buy a new home

Disclaimer: We are not now, nor have we ever been in Real Estate. This is just some of the things we wish we had  known to do before we every bought our first property.

Time frame (Immediately,  3 months, 6 months, a year.)

Features we want in a  new home to  have and a second list of what our new home must have.

Any disadvantages of  our home now? __________

Anything in current home we want to make sure we have in new? __________

Area- neighborhood, school, other requirements __________
