Residential Real Estate
No matter what part of the world you are from you will at some point want to own your own home. There are many aspects to consider when purchasing a residential property and it can seem a daunting undertaking.
The first thing you will need think about is your price range, how much you can afford and what type of mortgage you are eligible for. Finding the right mortgage lender can take a little time, however it can definitely pay dividends to shop around and get the best deal.
The next thing you will need to decide is location, which neighbourhoods you find attractive and where you can see yourself living. If you are a young professional then a city apartment might be right for you, if you are a young family you will be more interested in proximity to schools, parks and other facilities. If you are planning on living in the property yourself rather than as an investment it's important to find somewhere you can picture yourself staying in the long-term.
Be sure to hire a reputable solicitor to help with all the legal work, and ask for quotes on fees. If you're planning on making changes to the property after purchasing it, from fitting new windows to adding a new bathroom or a loft conversion, you should find out what kind of planning permission you will need.
