While choosing an apartment or house, you need to pay attention to many issues. First of all, everyone must keep in mind that the prices that you see on the Internet portals for real estate sales can be starting and thus different from the real ones. More exact prices can be obtained from a real estate agency, the agency’s websites, or other relevant sites. Look at more tips further in this article.
How To Start The Process Of Choosing And Buying A Real Estate?
If you buy a real estate without intermediaries, firstly you need to determine the area where the desired property should be situated. Find out the price policy of real estate in the desired area and compare it with the available budget. If you consider real estate as an investment, then it is important to determine in which areas the investment of funds will be the most profitable.
Announcements On The Sale Of Apartments And Houses
Here is the information that owners and intermediaries so diligently hide while selling real estate online:
“Intermediaries, please do not disturb“
It does not mean that this ad is from the owner. Often intermediaries themselves can write such a text, in order for other intermediaries not to call.
The signature “I am the owner” under the add does not mean that there are no intermediaries. Often, owners who want to work with their familiar realtor, add commission for him into the apartment price. Therefore, the apartment is more expensive, and the buyer pays “hidden” commissions but does not receive any services in return. All services are received by the owner, who is accompanied by an invisible realtor.
“In good condition“
Every owner of the apartment understands the words “in good condition” in their own way. It is desirable to clarify what is meant here because some consider an apartment being “in good condition” if the walls have not collapsed yet.
“Bargaining is possible“
When you meet the phrase “possible bargaining”, start bargaining right on the phone. As a rule, people expect that when you arrive and look, you will be sorry for the time spent, and you will make concessions. While speaking on the phone, it becomes clear immediately how much you can reduce the price.
