Eight Ways to Find the ideal Condo

1. Location is key.Living in a condominium that's near your worlplace saves on travel time, money , effort , and hours stuck in traffic. That 5-minutes walk to the office might do you good, too.

2. Scout before you buy.With so many condominiums being built these days, make sure you look into each one carefully before making that purchase. After all, it's a place you'd be coming home to every day and probably for the rest of your life, so take your time.

3. Look for a name you can trust.Ask your real estate agent who owns the property or who developed it. Resarch on the credibility of these land developers in delivering on promised results. Check their other projects.

4. Know thy neighbors. While the condominium itself is as posh as it can get, the environment around the perimeter of the building is as important. See if the place is safe and secure for you and your loved ones.

5. Check the payment scheme. Ask your real estate agent for the most affordable and flexible package that gives you the best discounts and freebies, too. Allot a budget per month for the condominium's upkeep.

6. Check out the amenities. See if the condominium has its own fitness center, swimming pool, jogging path, meditation, room, and other exclusive amenities. Make sure to use the amenities as they were put there for you to enjoy.

7. Choose the right-sized unit. Decide what you or your family needs: a studio, a one-bedroom, or two-bedroom unit. If you plan on raising your family there, choose a bigger unit. If you're renting out the place, a smaller unit(with a cheaper rent)might work better.

8. Assurance of delivery. Since this will be a major investment for you, ensure that the property is right on time in its condominium investment will be realized fully once it is ready for occupancy.
