a matrix to itemize your own feelings about each neighborhood you check out. You
can narrow down your list of prospective new neighborhoods by creating a matrix
that rates each home and neighborhood according to the six factors we've reviewed.
While you won't always find the perfect home in the perfect neighborhood that
satisfies every preference on your list, you can through a process of elimination
find a home in a neighborhood that meets most of your criteria. This matrix offers
a quick, objective scoring system for ranking and comparing the homes you visit.
Rate each home on a scale of 1 to 5 in each category, with five the most favorable
score, then total the scores for each choice.
