In your search, you will visit several units you like. Each one will have characteristics you will want to remember. After viewing a sixth space, it will be difficult to recall what you saw and where you saw it. You will need a memory aid.
The best memory aid you can have is to create a notebook. The Notebook allows you to record the details on each property – the condition, style, amenities, and any other items you want to remember. The notebook also allows you to keep a diary of your impression of the unit. A few recommendations to accurately record information are
- Save the listing sheet
- Take a camera to record interior and exterior shots of the unit
- Record thoughts as they occur to you – you can fill in the detail later
