How to Make Sure you Have a Positive Luxury Buying Experience
Luxury buying isn’t the same as a regular home buying experience. It’s important to be in communication every step of the way so that no one is making decisions without you and that you aren’t jumping into any deal for fear of a competition with another buyer.
If you are buying internationally, there are additional regulations to consider and no matter where you buy, you’ll need to research how development will change in the future. Take a look at these tips to make sure your buying experience goes well.
Research and ask the seller questions
Make sure you are looking into the future of an development you are considering. There may be the potential of a high rise going up that would block your gorgeous view, or a new development in the area may increase your property value. Be sure to talk to the seller who knows your property and neighborhood better than anyone else to see what the motivation for selling is and if there is anything interesting that you should be aware of if you were to live here.
Inspect the home and developer
Speaking of researching, you’ll want to do your due diligence by researching the developer of a pre-construction property or doing an inspection of a home that is already built. You should never purchase any home with a comprehensive inspection and getting an independent inspection will ensure that there is nothing the seller is omitting.
Stayed informed and don’t jump into anything
You’ll want to make sure you are staying informed every step of the way from your broker or the team working on your behalf. It’s easy for a team of help to make decisions on your behalf but you should be approving of all decisions in this home-buying process.
Also keep in mind that it’s important not to jump into a deal just because you found your dream home. Sleep on the decision and don’t let the fear of another potential buyer sway you into make a rash decision. Consider staying in nearby lodging to see how this part of town feels and drive through the neighborhood a few times throughout the day.
If you’re buying an international dream home, it’s important that you know your responsibilities as an international buyer. You will want to talk to your broker and your accountant about government and development regulations, as well as currency issues and tax ramifications.
