Buying Your Dream Home
Whether you are upsizing, downsizing, buying a holiday home or an investment, we at RE/MAX Crown have a professional team of Sales Assistants to help you!
The first question you are bound to ask is, And that depends on a number offactors:
What is your preferred location? Are you set on a specific area, town or city? Do you need a garden or outside entertaining space? What is your preferred type of home. A fully detached villa? A Semi detached villa? A Duplex penthouse or maisonette? Or do you prefer a typical and characteristic Maltese Townhouse or House of Character? Are you looking for something new, or are you adventurous and would like to find an unconverted property for you to do up to your complete liking?
Another important factor you have to consider is your income. After all, it’s not just the monthly payments you have to take into consideration. There are property taxes, everyday utilities etc. You need to consider the market conditions. Is it a buyer’s, sellers or balanced market?
Re/Max Crown sales assistants are also there to assist you by asking you specific questions to help you understand exactly what you are looking for. It’s a good idea to work out exactly what you want and what you can afford before you begin the search. Be specific! After all, you don’t want to suddenly come to the realization that your dream house has come with a nightmare of bills and expenses. Stick to looking at houses in your price range. The more you’ve thought it out, the better your sales representative can meet your needs.
A part of deciding just what you can afford can also be accomplished by meeting with your bank. There are many types of bank loans and many different terms. Research all of your options. This ensures that there are no surprises once you’re ready to make an offer. Remax Crown will also assist you with bank contacts and set up meetings with the bank manager of your preferred bank. Having approval by the bank, in principle does not mean that you need to buy the most expensive home you can. When you are looking at property, try not to be guided by the amount you can borrow. Any offer you make should be based on what you think the home is worth versus others in the same area, or similar homes, and here the agent is the best person to guide you.
Once you’ve figured out your monthly expenses and what you can afford, you can start your search. You might be lucky that the first home you see is the one you have always wanted; or you might need to look at home after home with none of them catching your interest. Rest assured, the home you’re looking for is somewhere out there, and when you find it, you need to be ready to make an offer. Good properties are snapped up very fast!
