Do you want to become an owner and don’t know where or what to start? Follow our guide containing all the elements necessary for the smooth running of a home buying procedure, with advice and practical information. It involves following the following three phases:
The preparation phase
In order not to make investment mistakes, it is essential to study your project carefully.
During the preparation phase, you must first think about what you want to have. In other words, the good you want to acquire, you have to imagine it. It is a kind of projection into the future, which will allow you to target your desires and needs to know what type of property will satisfy you: An apartment? A villa ? In the city or out of town?
What about the number of rooms? Priorities you want to have, for example those relating to transport, or the quality of the neighborhood and others. You can even jot down all your ideas by making a list, in order to better organize yourself.
Still in the preparatory phase, it is worth informing yourself. Certainly the imagination part is very important to know what you want, but the information part is also essential, because it will allow you to know if what you imagined during your ideal projection is possible or not. Thus, it is strongly advised to seek advice from real estate professionals, in order to get an idea of market prices.
Do not hesitate, moreover, to proceed yourself to a small tour on the ground, by going to the zones which interest you the most.
When we talk about action here, we are not referring to buying. However, these are still acts with substantive consequences. For example, with regard to visits, if you have reached this stage, it is because your budget is established, your ideas are in place and also, you have a very precise idea of the neighborhood and the type of dwelling…
As for visits, the most important advice to follow is to take your time, to see the maximum number of accommodations likely to interest you and thus have as many choices as possible.
Thereafter, you can proceed by elimination or choose, according to your crush. If you come across a rather old house, that is to say that it requires work, you must first think about quantifying it, because these are additional costs and you must prepare for it and know if you are or not, able to cover them.
Final phase of purchase
As you will have understood, this is the purchase phase itself, which begins with a purchase offer, from you or from the seller, if the latter has already set a price of sale.
If you reach an agreement, you will then be able to proceed with the administrative and legal phase, between conclusion of contract, change of address and others.
