Buying a property is an important investment. In most cases, finding and buying the house is a very tedious and stressful process. The only way for a smooth, good and easier choice is the right information and preparation.
By following these tips, you will get the best results with the smallest possible cost.
Before you start visiting real estate:
region of interest.
when you must or you would like to move into your new home
Calculate the total amount
of money you would like to invest
(include your cash, if available, and the amount of loan you can get)
basic housing needs by making a list
(e.g., How many bedrooms do I need? Want a view? Want a fireplace? Public transportation? Nearby market? Schools? etc.). When you find a property that covers a large proportion (70-80%) of the items on your list, you should buy it without delay.
Once you start viewing properties:
Focus on properties that have the features you've put down as necessary in the first place. In this way, you save time and money while maintaining your peace of mind.
Make comparisons with the suggested property alternatives taking into account not only the price per square meter, but also their location, quality and materials of construction, their benefits, floor and age.
Ask a real estate consultant (sustaining member of the Realtors Association) and allow him to do the research for you. It will help you find what you are interested in and will show you the very best in the region.
When you find a suitable property, you should trust your real estate consultant in the purchasing negotiations (always maintain a close contact with him)
