Buying apartment is one of most significant financial decision made in a person’s life in Kigali and abroad. The tendency often distracts buyers from considering all the essential points. Whether you are moving in or looking to purchase out, here are a few steps you absolutely need to move before buying an apartment.
The five (5) points I will highlight in this article, not in any exhaustive they form some of key consideration one must first follow.
- Take help of professional agent
eMall Property helps a buyer to get house at his budget and requirements. If the buyer will not take the help from our professional agents, he has to move from one street to another and from one house to other. He may get a house but the cost may be very high. Our agents help in finding a good house with a little commission fee.
Here are some of the benefit of hiring our agents.
- Have knowledge about the area where the desired house can be found
- The agent knows the prices of house in particular locality
- The agent can help the buyer in negotiating the price the seller
- The agent will guide the buyer throughout the buying process
2. Need for appraisal
The buyer needs an appraisal from the bank, which will tell him about the amount present in the bank account. The buyer can use it to purchase the apartment.
The buyer needs to check his saving and look for the house accordingly. The buyer should also check for the loan and the way it can be repaid.
3. Check the background of the property
The buyer should check about the background of property before finalizing the deal. The background check will let him know whether there are any legal proceedings going the property or the property belongs to a genuine seller. All these checks will help him to go through a smooth buying process and he will not face any problem after he starts living in the apartment.
4. Location of the property
This is one of the important things that the buyer should check. The location of the apartment should be at such a place that most of the things are nearby like market, tarmac road, bus stop, schools, colleges, parks, gardens, etc.
This will help him in spending a low amount on transportation. If he is using own transport, he will have to spend less on the fuel as everything will be near.
5. Accessing different places
Life will become comfortable if the buyer purchase such a house where he can find different social amenities nearby. The apartment should be located at such where the buyer has easy access to water and a borehole. The electricity connection should be good and if there is any fault, he can contact the respective professional nearby who can come and amend the fault in the electrical appliances and other things related to electronics.
In a nutshell, Apartment Ownership has become a fashion statement in Kigali. It is easy to feel overwhelmed by this huge decision and substantial investment. It is a significant commitment and as such requires careful planning and cautions choices.
