Creating your home wish list: 

Before the home search begins, JoAnn Abercrombie, as your buyer's real estate agent, will want to know as much as possible about the features and amenities you desire. To help her better serve you, analyze what you want and what you need in a home’s features and amenities.  It's a good idea to separate these preferences into two separate columns, "Wants" (where you list the negotiable features, things you would like to have) and "Needs" (where you list the non-negotiable features, things you have to have), as it will keep things in perspective as you begin your home search, and is invaluable insight to help your real estate agent know what's important to you in your home search.
