How To: Buy a pre-owned home according to PSBank
Buying a pre-owned home can flood your mind with hesitation. Such properties could cost you a fortune in renovations alone if you’re not cautious.
When it comes to purchasing second-hand homes, PSBank has your back. Thanks to its Good to Know campaign, you’ll be spared from possible buyer’s remorse when you follow these tips:
Know where to look
Go to banks and local government institutions like the Home Development Mutual Fund or PAG-IBIG to find pre-owned properties. Their websites will offer you great deals and auctions.
Schedule a visit or inspection
Before buying anything, you should make sure that the product (including houses) is in good condition. Determine the real condition of the house by asking a professional inspector for help. Since the property is second-hand, you should ensure the structure’s durability as well as other systems installed.
Consider the location
The location is just as important as the house itself. To get a good deal, find a house with proximity to a good school system, nearby transportation, and a market or grocery.
Be a smart buyer, and check the title and the latest property tax receipt. With these documents, you’ll be able to know how old the property is and see its chain of previous owners.
Check the market value of the property
To ensure that you will not be paying more than you should on a pre-owned home, do your research. You can go through current price trends or seek an expert to help you evaluate the property.
