The time has finally arrived and the search for your first home has come to an end. What next? The path ahead can seem complicated or uncertain for a first-time homebuyer. Your agent is there to make the process easier for you. Take full advantage of your agent’s knowledge.
You will have an endless list of questions on your mind. Knowing the right questions to ask your real estate agent can save you both time, money and stress.
It is vital to know the history of a home before making a commitment. There are also certain factors that could allow for negotiating the price. Important points to ask include:
- How old is the property?
- Who are the developers?
- Have the developers completed/done other projects?
- What is the lease period of the property?
- Does the property have a title deed?
Location can make a home more desirable. You also might be looking for particular features in your neighborhood, such as shopping malls, gym, restaurants. Avoid the additional costs that come with home-ownership.
- What other types of properties are located nearby?
- How much is the service charge per month?
- Are there certain parking restrictions?
Last but not least, ask your agent if there is anything else they need to tell you about the home that you haven’t asked. These questions give you basic concerns to address with your real estate agent.
