How to use the ads!
Nowadays, you can buy and sell anything on the Internet, including real estate. The most important thing from all this mass is to be able to single out exactly what is needed. Because when you enter phrases such as “real estate ads”, “buy an apartment”, “rent an apartment”, etc., you will see a huge number of sites offering services for placing ads on sale, purchase, and also renting both residential real estate and commercial.
We will teach you how not to get lost in this abundance and choose the right resources to place objects for sale, rent or search for real estate when buying and exchanging.
Before viewing ads, you should have a clear direction – either you want to buy a property, or rent it. This is necessary in order to immediately filter out unnecessary information, the amount of which can lead you away from the goal.
For example, you want to buy an apartment, in which case all the ads for the sale of real estate can be divided into two categories. The first category, and the largest, is ads from real estate agencies. The second category is much smaller – this is the category where owners sell their apartments on their own. At first glance, buying an apartment directly from the owner is much nicer, but in this case, you must take into account all the associated costs, namely attracting lawyers, to find out additional information about the owner of the apartment.
When you are looking for an apartment, pay attention to all the details in the ad, whether all the parameters of the apartment are indicated, information about the condition of the apartment, contacts of the owner or realtor, etc. Remember, a person who has nothing to hide is rather willingly providing all the necessary information. This also applies to real estate agencies.
If you have decided to cooperate only with the owner of the purchased property, in this case, pay attention to how long ago this announcement was placed, how many times and under what contact information. Thus, you can easily understand whether it is the owner or a realtor who pretends to be the owner. First, select all the appropriate options, and then start phoning, but at the same time forget about any embarrassment and ask as many clarifying questions as possible, even according to the information that is already indicated in the announcement.
