4 things to consider when buying a house

Whether you are a first-time buyer or you have decided to move for the first time in many years, it is important you buy the right house for you. Whether you are looking for a villa for sale in Palm Jumeirah or any off plan properties in Dubai, there are certain things you must consider. Below we list 4 important things you must consider when buying a new home.

1. Future needs

What are your future goals and aspirations? You must think about these when looking for a new home. For example, if you hope to have another child or start a home business you may wish to look at villas that have multiple bedrooms. It is essential you look for a home that not only suits your current needs but accommodates your future needs and goals. This ensures you will be happy in your new home for an extended period of time.

2. The area

It is important you thoroughly research the area where you are considering buying a villa. For example, you should look at local schools in the area and research crime statistics online. You will also need to consider what traffic and public transport are like in the area and how long your commute to work would be. Arabian Ranches Villas, The Villa Project, Dubai Hills Estate are prominent areas for buying a house.

3. Appliances and amenities

Look at how old the whitegoods are in a property, e.g. the cooker, washing machine, and dishwasher. These items are expensive to replace and if you are buying a modern home, they should be new and in perfect working condition. Ensure you establish what other furniture and appliances will be included with the property and ensure the sale of the items is included in your contract.

4. Land and space

If you have found a villa for sale in Palm Jumeirah that you love, but the property isn’t big enough for your needs, ask about any additional land you may be able to purchase with the property. This will give you the opportunity to extend the villa or build a new structure to fulfill your needs.
