Never Forget Your Needs.
Ask yourself: “Why am I buying this property?” Your needs should govern the type of property you buy. Obviously, if you are looking for an investment property, you would have a very different set of criteria to those you would have when buying a place to live. What may appeal to you when looking for a home may not be appropriate for an investment property.
If you are buying a home, don’t just consider whether the property is right for you today. If you are planning a family for example, will the property be big enough down the track?
Don’t just buy a property because you or those around you think that it’s a good idea. Buying a property is a very costly exercise. To avoid buying the wrong property, you should have a checklist of the things that you are looking for and make sure the property you buy ticks most of those boxes.
Example: We were recently instructed by a retired couple looking to downsize. While they were fit and healthy, the property had to last them at least another 20 years. Therefore, they needed to consider whether buying a property with stairs was a good idea.
