Out of all the things that you could invest money in, real estate is seen as one of the most stable. For some people, owning property is about making their future more secure. Others seek a steady revenue stream. If you are interested in real estate, below are 10 quick tips you need to think about before buying property.
- Define your goals – Ask yourself what you want from owning a property. Do you want to own it for a few years then sell it? Do you plan to keep it forever (or a long time)?
- Don’t make an emotional purchase – Falling in love with a property is easy. But there are factors which are much more important than how much you personally love it.
- Find the right property and the right price -Discovering a wonderful property is thrilling. However, if you can’t afford it, you may be biting off more than you can chew. One of the secrets of the property is finding the right property that is also at the right price. Take note that concept of the best property can vary from one person to another. Other than the price, there are other factors to consider such as the location, what amenities are available and the environment. For instance, some people may prefer investing in Elite Business Bay residences while others may find Elite Residences in Sports City to be a better option.
- Know your margins – Owners want to know how much profit they can get from investing in a specific property. In some parts of Dubai, the rental yield is as high as 9%. However, it is also important for owners to determine how much they will spend on the property each month.
- Calculate expenses – The costs of owning property vary from place to place. Although Dubai has no ongoing property taxes, there will always be costs associated with regular property maintenance and upkeep. Calculating these expenses helps define profit.
- Find a good property manager – Maintaining property requires time and attention that many owners don’t have. To keep your property in excellent shape, hire a good property manager to maintain your property.
- Examine the market – Being familiar with the market where a property is located is important. It allows you to know many things – how much you should pay for it, how much rent you should charge or how much to sell the property and other things.
- Location is everything – Is the property located where people want to live? Is it near businesses, schools, transportation, parks or shopping? Unlike many other investments, property always stays where it is built. Because of this, the location of a property is one of the most important things to consider.
- Livability or Luxury – Should the property be luxurious? Does it only need to be functional? Should it be somewhere in the middle? The answer probably depends on your potential rental clients.
- Keep a long-term view – Anyone who wants to get rich quick should probably stay away from the property. Why? Property investment is typically long-term. Once you put money into it, you should be committed to owning it for at least a few years, probably longer.
