Location is Key in Buying a Real Property

When buying a real property, including a condominium unit, anywhere in the world, the most important factor to consider is – location.

Experts on investing in real property will always emphasize that the most vital criteria for investment in real property is location. Whether you are investing in a condominium unit, for example, to make it your home or plan to rent it out, this should be the very first factor to consider.

Here are two of the factors that you should consider when buying real property whether for your own home or for investment:

1. Safety is always a major consideration for buying real estate. You would like to ensure that your family is safe.

2. The property has to be highly accessible to hospitals and clinics, jobs, transportation, reputable schools, entertainment and shopping establishments. Having a very nice view will also drive the property’s value.

Some buyers, however, consider price as equally important but a strategic location is always better because if you want to resell the property you would get a higher selling price. Even if the property is priced lower, do consider the fact that because it is not strategically located, if might be difficult to find a buyer. Or, if you rent out a property in a less-ideal location, you might have to lower your rental rates.

Of course, you have to shell out more for properties in prime location but you would get more return on your investment even on a medium term.
