It must be emphasized that, before browsing with free time to view images and videos of real estate, you should do the exercise of the previous item, that is, collect information about the average price of apartments in the desired locations.
Maintaining an Objective look
Maintaining this objectivity is very important so that you do not end up being guided solely by your emotions and end up investing all the time available for research in a pleasant activity, but with little or no practical benefit.
As you explore existing ads, register your favorites. Use a spreadsheet or text editor to paste links from your favorite ads. Take the opportunity to write down other relevant information, such as property size, price, characteristics and others. In the Real Estate Blog you can have the most important instructions now.
The Right Portals
From time to time, go back to the ad portals and redo the searches to see if there have been any price changes, or if new ads have been made available. My recommendation is that you redo your searches at least once every fifteen days.
The previous tip is a valuable tip to keep you updated and finds excellent last-minute opportunities. It also allows you to discover the properties that are taking longer to sell, which can turn into great windows for negotiating better prices and payment terms.
Internet as a tool for scheduling visits
After some time, it is time to make the face-to-face visits. The internet helps us a lot in the whole search process, but it is still not able to replace the need for one or more physical visits to the property. These visits will allow you to draw your conclusions and analyze whether what was offered on the web matches the reality you found in the property visited.
The ads usually present the contact details of the sellers or brokers responsible for the offer. Based on your list of favorite properties, make contact with all those you find interesting and try to schedule visits.
- Make visits even in properties that are a little out of your budget. we say this because many times people end up liking the property so much that they end up finding different financial solutions to make this big dream come true.
- Regarding this budget limit and the value of properties on the internet, it is important that you take into account that the prices displayed on the web tend to be different from the prices verified in direct contact with the broker. The latter are usually smaller and more attractive, and you should remember that there will always be room for negotiation and better conditions for closing the deal.
As if that were not enough, be aware of the fact that the average value that we normally find in real estate ad portals refers to the values of the ads and not to the final purchase and sale values. Cash payments, for example, usually come with excellent discounts. Another example is the purchase of a property in the plant, in the launching phase, whose payment flow, when paid in advance, will also result in discounts.
All this information can maximize the potential that the internet has to help you buy an apartment or any other property, closing an excellent deal. Stay tuned for these tips, take notes and explore what the web has to offer.
