3 THINGS ALL FIRST-TIME HOMEBUYERS GET WRONG!


Purchasing a home on the Costa Blanca? Avoid these mistakes or it could end up costing you thousands.


Here are 3 things first-time homebuyers get wrong:

  1. PAYMENTS IN CASH; Whatever figure you agree to purchase the property for, needs to be shown in full on your Title Deeds for future tax reasons. Don’t hand over any cash as this may have a negative effect when the time comes for you to sell.

  2. NOT USING A LAWYER; It is always safer to purchase a property with the assistance of a Lawyer. They’ll check for any debts and make sure the home you’re buying is legal.

  3. MAKING HOME IMPROVEMENTS TOO SOON; Take some time to get to know the house before making any major home improvements. What you thought needed changing, may not be necessary once you move in. Don’t waste money making hasty renovations.
