As you’re out and about looking at homes with a Sam Khalil real estate agent, the houses and their features can start to blend together. Was it the blue house with the big kitchen, or was that the one with the strange smell in the upstairs bathroom? Did you write it down?

How are you supposed to keep all these houses straight so you can make the best decision?

Use a home comparison chart. It’s not difficult to make one yourself, and you can print it to bring along each time you’re visit a different home.

How to Make a Home Comparison Chart

Using a spreadsheet, create four columns.

In the first column, type “Features.”

In the second and subsequent columns, type “House #1,” “House #2” and “House #3.”

Fill in the first column with vital information; follow that with the amenities you’re looking for in a home so you can check the boxes if the home has those features.

Here are some ideas to get you started:

  1. Address
  2. Price
  3. Square footage
  4. Lot size
  5. Taxes
  6. Association dues
  7. Number of bedrooms
  8. Number of bathrooms
  9. Kitchen
  10. Formal dining room
  11. Family room
  12. Living rom
  13. Den/study
  14. Laundry
  15. Number of parking spaces
  16. Patio/porch
  17. Fireplace
  18. Spa
  19. Storage space
  20. Exterior condition
  21. Landscaping
  22. Schools
  23. Near work
  24. Near hospital
  25. Near shopping
  26. Crime rates
  27. Overall impression

At the bottom of your spreadsheet, leave plenty of space so you can jot down other notes (like the strange smell in the upstairs bathroom).
