The Internet has made it easier for us to do a lot of things. With just a click of a button, thousands of results are offered to us in less than a second. This also applies when looking for a new home! You can see photos and read about properties by simply visiting websites and blogs. As with any other online transactions, we need to be extra careful when dealing with sellers as well as when filling up forms. Make sure that your personal details are kept confidential and that the site you're viewing is secure.

If you've been reviewing developments and homes up for sale on the Internet, here are important tips to keep in mind: 

Pick a reputable seller

Check reviews, buyer feedback, and read up on the seller and the company. Security and brand image should be thoroughly checked to avoid scams.

Check for hidden charges

Be a responsible homeowner by researching and knowing the price range of condo units. Prices usually vary depending on the location and type of condo (whether it's high-rise or low-rise). What youcan do is inquire about the prices of different developers and ask about the payment options. Once you have acquired quotations from three to four developers, you can review each and prepare to make a final decision.

Visit the space personally

Don't be in a rush to buy a unit. Visit the space and inspect the rooms. Make sure that the utilities are working and that the space is in tip-top shape. Don't hesitate to ask the agent, seller or building admin your questions. Observe the location and neighborhood as well.
