Make sure that you have copies of the homes' listings so that you will have the information about the property readily available. A camera is also a good idea to take photos but if the property is occupied then you should have the seller's permission to take them as it will contain their personal belongings.
A tape measure is also a good idea in case the sizes of the rooms are not available on the listing.
And, if you use mobile technology; keep your phone with you so that you can look up any available data on-line particularly the tax assessor's office. This way you might be able to determine if all taxes are paid and that there are no liens on the property. This information might be available on-line as some municipalities do allow public access via the internet.
