When searching for your dream home, there are a few common mistakes that you the buyer make, which can ultimately jeopardize losing out on the purchase of your future home in Spain.
Here are 3 of the most common mistakes buyers make, that are easily avoidable:
1. “We don’t have to decide right now. If it’s meant to be, it’ll still be waiting for us.”
Thinking this is a big mistake, and whilst there are a good selection of homes to choose from, there are also a lot of serious buyers and investors out there, that are also looking at the same properties as you. So by the time you’ve made your decision, it could be too late! Disappointment, my house hunting amigos, is a feeling that could be completely avoided. If it feels right, why wait?
2. Aesthetics – Do you care too much for curb appeal?
Everyone would like a home that screams “look at me,” but not everyone has the funds or imagination to be able to transform a bland entrance into Buckingham Palace!
Don’t drive past with your foot to the floor! This could be the “hidden gem” you’ve been waiting for. There are a lot of properties that are very deceiving from the outside, and need to be viewed from the inside, to appreciate everything it has to offer. Every house has a heart, you just have to look a little harder to find it sometimes. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder!
3. It’s not all about the cash!
Yes cash talks, but even if you need a loan, you could still negotiate a good deal. As long as you’re a good candidate for a mortgage, or have even been pre-approved, you can make an offer and complete in a few months. It may suit a seller better anyway, as they may need extra time to arrange the move while the bank is sorting out your funds. So don’t let it stop you putting your offer forward.
You need to remember, the only person stopping you from making your dream a reality, is you!
