Find the best home for you in Lexington with Jason Compton as your agent - (803) 957-5566

The largest secured investment in Lexington County is your house. With that choice comes a lot of careful decision-making when it comes to choosing a place to live. Using the Home Buyer's Checklist here will help you understand all of the characteristics of up to three homes and helps you identify what you really want as a first-time homeowner.

To help you narrow down your "likes" list from online to the list of houses you tour, take this checklist along when you go house hunting. Make note of the items that are most important to you. It'll help you put things in line and use sound ways to measure the homes you're evaluating. By completing this list, you'll easily see all at once the features of up to three homes.

Buying a home is nothing to take lightly. I can offer advice and show you the place that's going to be your first home. Contact me and I can help you get on the right track to the home of your dreams.
