Property buying has undergone a major overhaul and transformation over the years. The recce process has been replaced by online research.
Though the number of people buying property online, still remains less but going forward with the implementation of RERA and increasing transparency in the real estate sector, people are going to start transacting online, itself. In light of these recent developments, REP Calgary Homes decided to share some tips for you, if you plan to buy your new home, online.
- Easy & Wide Research: Whether you plan to buy your property online or offline, the research process can begin online as the online medium gives you a lot of scope to research before you make the final plunge. Don’t feel like driving to several onsite locations in search of property, then do it conveniently from the comfort of your home. This is definitely one of the biggest benefits. You save time and energy and get to research on a much wider scale. Decide the location, scan through the locality and all the major projects coming up in that area without moving an inch. So, isn’t it easy, while giving you access to more?
- Online Property Tour: The properties, which impress you can be viewed from home too. Yes, with real-time pictures and videos available, you can take a virtual 360-degrees tour of the property. Check the property, sample flat, and each room. You can easily carry out the preliminary investigation from home. If you are in the same city or town, you can go for a physical inspection as well otherwise the online space will give you the complete, clear picture.
- Reputed & Recognized Builder: If things like legality, transparency bother you, then go for a builder of repute. It is essential that the builder should have all the requisite licenses and permissions and there should be no court dispute against the property. If you go for a reputed builder, then getting all this information and statistics will be easy. In any case, getting all this information regarding any builder will be easy with the implementation of RERA.
- Save Money: From time to time, realtors keep bringing up new schemes and offers. You can get good discounts and other benefits when you buy a home online. But the schemes and offers, which you see online, you must verify it with the builder before making the booking. As these offers keep changing from time to time. But in order to promote online booking of house, every builder keeps coming up with some or the other scheme helping you in saving money.
- Read all Documents Carefully: If possible, before finalizing try to do a physical check of the property. But if it’s your trusted developer, then you can go ahead and check all the documents carefully. Right from booking amount, stamp duty, and other taxes and charges you need to double-check and be sure about each and every detail related to your property.
