What do I want? 

 

Is it really worth the stress of moving if you can’t have… This is why you need to fill out the wants list. You should also make a distinction between “l have to have this” and “It would be nice, but it won’t be the end of the world if the house doesn’t have it”. Then rate your top ten. (Feel free to add items as well.)
