What also works is making notes on the flyers given to you by your agent.
Nicknames are great to describe different houses - we recently visited a bulldog house with my clients. That one was one loud showing...hard to forget, because of the house pet.
I try to establish the "base" - from the 1st house that my buyers like, then we compare other houses to the front runner.
Don't stress and try to enjoy the process - if you don't remember a house, maybe it was not the one?
Hope this helps,

When I am house hunting with a client, I set up daily searches sending pictures from multiple listing and give a multiple listing sheet with pictures of the property, along with tax records and a history. Clients may also use my website and save properties they like.
Once inside a property, the client will know if they like the floor plan and location. They can write notes on the paperwork they have in hand and discuss each property with me.

You can also take a note pad with you on viewings, take extensive notes on the homes..
Your agent can also prepare a reprt for you of all the homes you have viewd.
Best Of Luck to you
However if you have to see more than 15 or 20 homes...dont bother the numbering system...and start questioning why can't you be happy with anything you see. Are you one of those who expects to find the perfect home? Will you be willing to pay asking price or above for that perfect home? Remember you cannot buy champagne with a beer budget...find the best beer and purchase it.

ALL three of my fellow Realtors give good advise.
What I do is to give my client the MLS sheets in a note book. I normally show the house I think is the best fit first.
Then as we go along, I make client write down on that sheet what they liked and didn't like about each home, and to tell me about it on way to next home. This helps me as well.
Using the first home as the base line, I make the client to rate the home on a scale of 1 to 10- with 10 being the highest. Thus my number one gets out voted for a reason (s) I know about.
End of the day, we should have a winner.
By elimination... THROW AWAY your definite nonos and concentrate on your possibilities .. Give them a score from 1 to 5. Save those for future reference.
