Buying a new home or making an investment is a very exciting experience for anyone but sure enough, it could be challenging. The main fear for most is falling a victim to a scam, not buying the correct property, missing or mixing documents, of course, there are ways to avoid this. Firstly, you must do thorough research and find the right consultancy firm. The real estate advisors will explain to you all the details, laws, and regulations that you need to know. The consultancy firm is a good choice because the agents are aware of the legitimate projects that are authorized for habitation and purchase for foreigners and the legal zones for construction. This is a significant detail hence some of the areas are illegal for foreigners to purchase, even if you buy the property you do not have the right to sell it. Aside from the projects and zones, there are the developers and free agents that have a habit of taking advantage of the buyers by selling properties with higher prices. They also provide less or no service at all after the purchase. The real estate consultancy firm follows up with the client even after the payment, they continue to offer services such as legal consultancy, power of attorney, aid with the residence permit, citizenship application, and all other legal paperwork required from you. Another reason to conduct a purchase through a firm is the insurance of an off-plan construction. An off-plan construction means that the project did not enter the construction phase yet. Buying it from an unknown agent does not ensure its delivery meanwhile, it is completely safe to purchase it with the help of a real estate agent who knows the trusted developers. A lot of buyers today believe that they do not need a consultancy firm to act as a medium and prefer to buy directly from the developer. It is of course an option although, you will have no guarantees that will prevent you from getting scammed so using an experienced firm that will guide you through the entire process, consult you and ensure delivery of the property is the best choice.
