If you are a young professional looking to make your way in life then there are few better ways to get on the right track that are better than getting your own apartment. With your own apartment you can have a space that’s young and vibrant and that you can decorate into a real pad, but at the same time you won’t have to pay monthly rent which can get really expensive and is essentially the equivalent of just throwing money away. When you own your own apartment then all that money that you are paying into it will be yours still and you will get it back when you finally come to move out – so financially it makes by far the most sense. CBD apartments in particular are even better if you are looking to get an apartment somewhere that is convenient for work, that will retain its value and that will help you to stay right in the thick of it.
So how do you go about buying CBD apartments and getting on that property ladder? Well first of all one of the best things to do is to find an estate agent with an MLS. An MLS is a ‘Multi Listings Service’ which basically lists numerous properties in one place. These are highly useful because they allow you to browse through all the properties in one place without having to snoop around the web like a digital detective. At the same time these have the advantage of allowing you to perform cross searches where you search by particular criteria so you only find ones that match what you are looking for – want a large CBD in easy commutable distance from where you work within a particular price bracket? With a balcony? Then type that in and arrange an appointment.
While you can see the apartments on the website in pictures, this is nowhere near the same as looking around the property in person so it is absolutely crucial that you do this first before you think about buying and at the same time that you know how to look around a property.
The first tip when you look around is to make sure that you take a list of questions. So often the questions we have in mind can easily fall out of our brain when we are put on the spot looking around and it’s very useful to have them with us to prevent this. Don’t be afraid either of overstaying your welcome – you are thinking of making a very sizeable purchase so you are entitled to stay there a while if you want to. While you’re there imagine that the property is already yours and how you would feel looking around it for the first time if it were. Likewise think about whether your things would fit in and think about how you’d be able to have guests around etc. You should also make sure of course to get the property checked over by a surveyor to make absolutely sure there are no serious problems.
