Are you looking for a better place so you can move out? Have you been checking apartments for sale in Downtown Dubai? Well, this article is just for you!
If you are trying to find the house/apartment of your dreams, you can make a quick five-minute look around the property and then leave. Who would want to make one of the biggest purchases and decisions of their life based on a quick judgment? No, sir!
This property viewing must be effective, a well-spent time, or you could end up missing something that will probably make you regret some of your decisions in the future.
So, here are some tips so you make sure your property viewing was a total success!
1. TAKE YOUR TIME
Top real estate brokers in Dubai recommend to take your own time in property viewings and try not to book many viewings within a small time frame, so you don’t feel rushed while checking out your future home.
The recommended time to check the inside of a property ranges from 20 to 30 minutes, and even more (if you really need to), and another 20 minutes to look around the outside and taking a walk around the area. Don’t let the real estate agents rush you, take your time.
2. DON’T GO ALONE
The more pairs of eyes you have available looking around your potential investment, the better. Going alone to a property viewing usually ends in the customer getting led around by the realtor and listening all the “great” features the property may have.
Even if you’re planning to buy a property by yourself, taking someone with you is always a good plan.
3. DON’T THINK OF IT AS YOUR HOME
Leave any emotions you may feel about a property at the doorstep and start thinking in terms of what’s better for you and your interests. You will have a hard time having an objective opinion of a place if you already feel some attachment or emotions towards it.
Don’t force yourself to like a property, you have to make sure everything is right and what you’re looking for, which takes a critical eye.
4. VIEW AT DIFFERENT TIMES OF THE DAY
Top real estate brokers in Dubai also recommend that you should have more than one viewing of a property, so you make sure you are absolutely in love with the place.
Book one viewing for the daytime and one for the evening, as it will allow you to see how the property is at different times of the day and give you a better impression of what the neighbourhood is like in the evening. Viewing the property at multiple times also give you the chance to ask any questions you may have after your first viewing.
