Tips for Choosing a Home for Young Families


After we previously discussed the tips for choosing the first house, this time I tried to discuss tips on choosing a home for young couples. These tips are not only limited to first home purchases.

Houses are the most expensive asset for most families, especially for young couples. Along with the increase in family members or the necessity to move cities, the purchase of the next house is a choice.
So even though the existing home inventory can be said to be limited, still we must not choose the wrong choice when making a purchase. For this discussion the main focus is the purchase of houses for non-investment purposes.


Location

The strategic location for young families is usually the proximity to the work location or at least the location has / passed by adequate transportation facilities.
The strategic location also determines the prospect of the price of this property in the future so that the house we buy can also be a profitable investment tool if you want to resell it.

Environment

A comfortable, safe and well-maintained environment also must be considered. It’s useless a good home but in the middle of a slum or crime-prone environment.
For young families also usually include the factor of traffic congestion in the residential environment as a consideration as well. Do not always be alarmed when the child starts asking permission to play outside the home.

Credibility and good reputation

This is most easily assessed through previous projects. Look for as much news as possible about the developer, if you need to go to housing that has been built before.
Not that new developers can’t be trusted, huh, but our selection process must be more detailed. Especially if we buy a house that is still “picture”, the credibility of the developer becomes very important to note.

Legality

Make sure the land area built by housing has its parent certificate issued. If the certificate is pledged to the bank for the purposes of the project, we can just ask to see the Deed of Giving Mortgage Rights and Underwriting Rights Certificates.
If the legality of the location of the housing to be purchased is still a location permit, the risk is still quite high. For that, first ask the parent copy of the certificate to make sure.

Commitment

Usually many developers have many promises. Try checking the stages of development promised by the developer, whether it is in accordance with the actual development in the field.
If there are some promises that are not made for reasons that are not strong enough, it is better not to force yourself to buy from the developer.

Collaboration with banks

Now this is important, because it determines how many mortgage options we can do. The more banks that are invited to cooperate means the more choices of mortgage schemes that we can get.
In addition, cooperation with banks also indicates that … Read More
