Prioritise your list of features and amenities, avoid fly-by night brokers and checkout the condition of the apartment and who will pay for the major repairs and maintenance before you rent a house or a flat, suggest experts.
Tips to make your search easier and efficient:
- Check property pictures: Always insist on checking property pictures carefully to shortlist the ones you want to visit physically. Home-seekers who do not shortlist are likely to end up in wild goose chase and end up visiting a bunch of irrelevant options which do not suit their profile but are hard sold by the brokers.
- Fix your priorities and areas of negotiation: It is almost impossible to find a house that ticks all the boxes according to your needs, tastes, preferences and budget. Therefore, it is important to prioritise your list of features and amenities.
