This alone is enough to make people browse through the local Edmonton listings to check out sales. Before heading out to close sales and make a final purchase, make sure that the place is a perfect fit to prevent buyer's remorse.
Review the rules
Every building comes with its own set of rules. Some building owners or homeowner's associations may allow people to paint the living room dark red, and others may only allow white or other neutral colors. Other rules to consider before moving into a building include:
Whether pets are allowed
Policies on smoking
Alterations to the appearance of the condo
Whether blinds or curtains are allowed
How much an owner can customize the interior and exterior of the home
Who takes care of the yard work, including snow removal
Consider storage needs
If storage is important, take a minute to check out closets and pantry space. If a person has a lot of clothes, they need to consider how many dressers they will need, how much closet space they will have, and so on.
Persons that need a lot of storage space may wind up feeling cramped if they move from a house in Edmonton to a smaller place. Most real estate agents and building owners are full of tips and ideas when they have a place in the sales section, and they may be able to help figure out a way to own the home without having to get rid of everything in storage.
Who pays for repairs
Owning a condo in Edmonton may seem like a great idea, but it can wind up costing owners a lot if they don't know how much of repairs they must cover before they seal the deal. If the building needs a new roof, the building owner may cover the costs, home insurance may cover it if it is due to a storm, or all the owners may have to pitch in to cover it. Sometimes, a building owner will impose certain restrictions on owners to help cover the cost.
It's important to ask about this when looking at condo sales.
When the Edmonton market is great, or someone wants to hurry up and sell, they will have sales, just like furniture stores have sales. This may include a discount on the deposit, upgraded appliances at a cheaper cost and so on. Either way, saving a little money is always a great idea.
Wear and tear
Doing a walk through is something that must be done, and potential owners need to keep an eye out for wear and tear throughout the place. Open the doors on the appliances to make sure that there are no problems, the lights come on, etc.
Potential owners should also look at the corners of rooms for scuffs, keep the condition of the floor in mind and any other common repairs that owners must make.
Purchasing a new home is an exciting time, whether it is a condominium or a single house. First time owners may get caught up in the excitement or in the fact that they can save money and forget to check for these important things. Years later, they may also wind up having to pay thousands of dollars to chip in a new roof unexpectedly.
Prevent buyer's remorse by keeping these things in mind before a purchase.
