Location is one of the most important factors to take into account when considering buying a home.

Consider everything that surrounds the property!

Does it’s street where have good lighting? Is the area usually the target of robberies?

Does the condominium provide video surveillance?

Property condition

When making your visit to the property, take a good look at the walls, ceilings, floors, etc. All kinds of damages and possible repairs will be at your cost. The state of conservation of the house is a crucial factor to take into account in your visit. A property that needs a lot of repairs can end up giving a lot of headaches quickly. If you do not intend to invest in renovations, bet on a renovated or new property.



The cost of the property is probably the main factor to consider when looking for a home. Evaluate all the elements that you think are important and compare them to the price. Is it suitable for the property? Also consider all the expenses you will have with the house in repairs, condominium and decoration, and make your final decision! Do not forget that all properties have an associated tax (the IMI) and that the bigger it is, the higher it will be.
