- To compare properties you need to have used the same scorecard for each. This is so that youre criteria for comparison is common across all properties and your comparison will be fair

- To change the scorecard that will be used to score the home click on the scorecard field & the app will allow you to select a different scorecard.
What do the icons mean on this page? Property % The property percentage defines how closely the property met the criteria you defined in your scorecard. The property % is calculated by the equation: (Total number of points awarded across all questions / total number of available points)/100 Please note that no weighting is given to any score card criteria. It is a simple 1-3 point scale (1 point for bad, 2 points for OK and 3 points for Great). Purple Doors The Purple Doors displayed next to the property are a graphical way of displaying the percentage score given to the property. The purple doors are awarded as follows:
- 1 Door = Property has scored between 1% & 33%
- 2 Doors = Property has scored between 34% & 50%
- 3 Doors = Property has scored between 51% & 66
- 4 Doors = Property has scored between 67% & 82%
- 5 Doors = Property has scored between 83% or above

Use this function after you visit more than one property to get a feeling for which property might best suit your needs. It should help you to balance your heart and your
head. For example, if youve visited a home and said ‘Yes, perfect’ you should score the property and then compare it against others you visit. You might find that while the property felt wonderful, it didnt score as well as another property. This might not change your mind but might help you to investigate further so that you make the best decision for you.
