OK fine, your phone will do. Just make sure you have a way to keep an eye on the time, and be on time!

Your "needs and wants" list
Before you even start actually looking at houses, you should create a list of things you absolutely need in a house, and a list of the things you want (but could live without). It will help you truly assess whether each house meets your needs or not. Pro tip: make it into a checklist and print one out for each house so you can check the items off as you view it.

Better to grab yourself a notepad and pen than it is to scribble notes on your hand!
