Inspect a home: No problem with this checklist!

At last, the moment has arrived: Your appointment to view the dream house you've been imagining. Amidst a whirlwind of sensations and feelings, it's all too easy to fall under the spell of a charming south-facing balcony or the timeless elegance of old parquet floors. However, as captivating as the prospect of finally moving into your much-desired home may be, it's crucial to maintain a discerning eye during the visit. Don't let first impressions sway you. Our meticulously designed viewing checklist is here to guide you in evaluating the property comprehensively, ensuring that you examine every detail with precision.



During a house viewing, the following six areas are generally inspected:

  • Location and immediate surroundings

  • Property

  • Garden

  • Building

  • Interior spaces

  • Additional costs

As you can see, that is quite a lot. Consequently, you need to absorb and process a lot of information in a short amount of time. To ensure important questions do not get overlooked in the heat of the moment and you can neatly recap all points after the viewing, it is crucial that you note down each point during and immediately after the viewing. A viewing protocol is a valuable tool for proceeding in a structured manner. This is especially useful when you are viewing multiple purchase objects simultaneously, as it allows you to compare your written impressions directly afterwards.
