    Decide Your Investment Strategy

    Before you start searching for the perfect property, it's essential to determine your investment strategy. Ask yourself some vital questions: What is the purpose of your purchase? Are you looking for a property to live in or for investment purposes? Do you prefer a new property or an older one with character? Additionally, assess your credit score to understand your financial standing, as it plays a crucial role in the buying process.

    Choose the Ideal Locality

    The location of your property is one of the most critical factors to consider. Look for a locality that suits your lifestyle and makes it convenient to access essential places like schools, workplaces, and amenities. Check the accessibility of major roads and traffic flow to avoid any inconvenience in the future. Decide whether you prefer to live closer to the main entrance or further inside the development, based on your preferences.

    Plan Your Finances

    Once you've found the ideal property and location, it's time to plan your finances. Create a comprehensive budget that includes not only the property price but also ongoing home expenses. Make sure you have enough funds for the down payment and consider applying for a mortgage. Our experienced mortgage brokers at PSI can guide you through the application process and help you secure the best deal.

    Make an Offer

    When you find your dream property, it's time to make an offer. Timing is crucial in this step, as the real estate market can be competitive. Make a reasonable offer that aligns with the property's value and market conditions. Our experts at PSI will assist you in preparing and presenting your offer to the seller, ensuring the best chance of success.

    Complete Necessary Paperwork

    Once your offer is accepted, it's time to proceed with the paperwork. An MoU (Memorandum of Understanding) or Form F under RERA will be signed, containing all essential details of the agreement. You will also need to provide a check with an estimated percentage of the unit price (PSI will guide you), payable to the seller, and a post-dated commission check for the brokerage.
