5 Tips on Buying a Home in a Housing Complex
Buying a house in a residential complex can be a practical step for you in choosing a residence.
You no longer have to bother considering various things because generally housing in the complex includes several things that are sought after by potential home buyers, including strategic locations, adequate facilities, and easy transportation access.
In addition, you also don’t need to bother monitoring housing construction from the start because the developer has supervised it.
Even though it’s easier, there are some things you need to consider to do before buying a home in the complex so you make the right choice.
Do a survey
Before buying, do a detailed survey of the housing complex. Surveys can be done online or come directly to the field. Make a simple comparison, scoring, and analysis based on the type of house you need.
There are several parameters in finding a residence, including considering the location, access to transportation, flood-free areas, access to clean water, complex facilities, and so on.
Visit the marketing office
Visit the marketing office and ask for more information about the house you are going to buy. After that, ask the marketing department to take you to the prospective home.
If possible when on the field, do ‘investigations’ directly, for example talking with neighbors or complex security guards to extract the information you need.
Know the status of the house
There are two types of home status, which are ready to live and indent. Home status ready to live usually can be seen directly form. But most housing uses indent status so you can only choose a location through the site map.
You also have to wait at least 8-24 months from the credit agreement for the house construction process.
Compare prices and facilities
Before buying, make sure you check the price of the house. Generally, the house price includes } VAT, the Sale and Purchase Act (AJB), and the Cost of Building Use Certificate (SHGB). In addition, do not forget to check the facilities in the housing complex.
Is it comparable to the price you spend. Generally a housing complex provides children’s playgrounds, worship facilities, and has its own shopping area.
Take advantage of the warranty period
After the process of handing over the house, you will get a guarantee time or called a maintenance period with a duration of 3-6 months.
In this timeframe you can complain and request free repairs if there is damage to the house, such as leaking, cracked walls or other damage. And, do not first make a home renovation at this time because it will automatically eliminate the warranty period.
