When considering a property to purchase it is a good idea for most people to have an inspection checklist of important points for comparison between properties.
These should list the factors that are important to you and enable you to assess the degree of importance of each influencing factor. This discipline can also help you compare and decide between properties when you are conducting your search especially if you may be inspecting a number of properties within a short period of time.
