Buying a new home can be a bittersweet experience. All at once you enter into the exciting idea of living in a new home but then the bitter side of bills and unexpected repairs arrive as soon as you enter the front door. Whether you are a first time home buyer in Ibiza or a veteran, there are plenty of unexpected surprises. Here’s what you need to know before taking the big leap into buying a new home.
Do you have enough money?
This question seems obvious but is always better to point this out. Getting pre-approved for a mortgage is really the first step in the home buying process, furthermore, do you know all the extra costs related to buying a property in Ibiza? There’s no point to waste your time looking at homes only to find out that you cannot afford them.
Hire a professional
We know that can be tempting to buy and sell a home with little help from a professional. Professionals cost money so why waste it if you can do it yourself? But even the most experienced buyer and seller will tell you that there is no better money spent than the one invested in a professional! There are just too many risks involved when going at this type of purchase alone. Find out in our extensive guide a list of reliable Ibiza rental estate agents and lawyers.
