The secrets of the land market

The secrets of                              the land market


At its best, investing in land is high risk and drive high performance. In the worst case, exercise patience. The basic principle is to buy one cheap land in areas that have not been developed in anticipation of as quickly as possible upgrade.

Then you have a choice of selling this land, or its development of you or in cooperation with an investor. The plan is simple, however, most often the implementation is often more difficult than expected.
  Choosing underdeveloped areas is cheaper compared to buying land in a landscaped market.To limit the risks focus interest in areas near communities that increase their population.
Most dream double digit rates of return and forget the expense of the exploitation of the land, while waiting for economic growth. Although the real profits come from sales in fact, areas that give profits transferred before dawned their growth and this because of the buyer's expectations. Therefore, the effective profitability of land, requires market very early and patience.
If the expected growth does not occur, then you need a loss compensation scenario. The American speculators follow the land market strategy in locations that meet certain characteristics. This approach requires a lot of capital and big market research.
What does this mean ; The game with the land is a matter for those who have capital stocks after land speculation is a costly and risky investment. Here are some of the questions that investors should first respond and buy later.
1. There is the money needed for the purchase of the land or to service the loan?
2. There are property taxes to pay how many are they? How affects the individual tax burden the market and how much passage in a company?
Evaluating ...
The most important factor that monitor land investors is the health of local economies. Although many external factors can cause a market ignition eg the construction of a car factory or a road or improving transport infrastructure, however, a strong local economy is the best guarantee. Of course the natural beauty is an important factor in the choice.
But equally important is the development costs eg fencing, drilling, road building etc. The scheme is an important part of the decision process. The same goes for land use. Do not underestimate this. The local community is an important factor. For example, if the local community does not want deployments then you certainly have to face an additional headache.
The idea that you should buy land from someone whose existence only proven identity is a telephone number rather should trouble you. These scams peaked in the decades of 60's and 70's but at any moment may appear. No need to make you the next victim ...

You should not paint the walls with dark or bright colors.

What to look for when buying a property

Prospects goodwill of the property.
Because all property is deviated so as to gain from capital gains you should be informed of the real estate consultants of estate ALEXpolis-akinita office for redevelopment and planning perspective of the area that interests you. If such projects are not programmed, it is likely to reduce the resale value of the property, resulting in the loss of significant funds.
Market research to determine the real price.
The real estate price survey in the area that interests you, is very important since there are several owners who have overestimated their properties and require larger amounts of the actual value.
Check titles and information about the property.
Have a lawyer to  control the property titles which you have chosen to avoid unpleasant surprises. It is one of the major stages of property buying.
After checking in the land registry you will learn if the property is clean or it has burdens from third parties (eg banks, court decisions, etc.) If the property is under construction, you should check the site for any weights.

Why properties prices rise up?

The state once again changed the situation of the land by Law 3775/2009 (arth.40,41).
All attention  is focused on regulations which attempt to "settle" (indirectly legalized) normal planning infringements, namely the conversion of semi-open spaces, ground floor closed parking places and elevated basements in main use areas.
The above regulation arose deterministically as there was no longer any apartment or house without the above known to all, but mainly confident infringements as always for reasons of Tax Collection. Reactions to certain alleged violation of legality to that legislation considered late as all the tolerance shown reveals some regret and guilt.
Let's focus briefly on the key amendments made to the Building Code  which went unremarked but will impose dramatic changes to the image of the land:
Reducing allowable semiland to 15% of the total building, distributed similarly to all floors with concrete dimensions preclude the creation of autonomous spaces and convert them into additional rooms.
The ground-level indoor parking spaces will count most in structuring consistently manufactured to make it practical and cost effective.
The height of the basement can not exceed 0.8 m from the landscaped ground level (previously was 1.50m) consistently raised underground abolished.
Inevitably one is led to conclude that the houses that will be built with building permit lodged after 21/7/2009 will be definitely smaller in size and more expensive than those already build homes.

The right home in the right area


The right home in the right area


Most believe that buying a house what counts is the only region. Wrong! Statistical analyzes were completed recently showed what "counts" are: The right home in the right area ....

Recent research has shown that even if a property is in a very good area, this will not ensure profits especially if it is not adapted to the characteristics of the remaining property in the area.
The investigation focused on what these characteristics which should be taken into account that the property to be a "typical property" of the area.
In each residential neighborhood, houses will vary in size and rooms. 'Key' to success is to ensure that the house you are interested in is not major differences from the other houses in the area. For example, if you have the biggest house in the area, the more likely you will be hard to find very concerned. And you know why?

Because those who buy in an area have specific expectations and requirements. But in this there are some exceptions. That is, if the rule is too relentless for the big houses, the same is true for the houses small and medium size.

Even in very expensive areas, where the houses are over 150 square meters, a small and medium-sized "holds" the apartment price and can offer higher yields.

The houses, double-and three bedrooms are the most popular among buyers. If you choose such a house, then when the time comes to sell it or to rent it, you get much more involved compared to if you had a house with a bedroom and spacious living areas.
The closets are extremely desirable for the master bedroom. For the rest of the house, you must be sure that there is plenty of storage space.
A parking space increases the resale value. If the building is old and does not offer this extra, you need to be sure that available parking spaces in private garages and even at an affordable price.
The kitchen
The kitchen is the most important room in the house. Larger kitchens are clearly more desirable and can attract interest. If indeed it is possible to operate the site as a breakfast area, or even if offered for placing a TV, believe that can "pull" upwards like a magnet the value of the house.

Who is the right time of purchase and sale of property

The dilemma is known when you have an old house for sale and want to buy a new one. What should I do first? To buy or sell?

It depends on why you want to sell your property and status.
  Although property prices are rising or stable.
  The area of the property.
  The demand and supply in the region.
All these affect the market rate and the sale of your property.
If property sales in recession would be good to start the property sale process before buying. Whether or property demand is on the rise you must start the process of purchasing property before sale.
