The world is moving
fast and technology has shrunk hours of works into minutes. We can
withdraw cash, wash clothes, send messages and even cook food, all
at the press of a button. Internet has a major role in pacing up
our lives almost on every front.
The emerging virtual
world of the real estate is a good example of it. People prefer
to search for a product online before they actually buy it and it
applies to property search as well.
Online property search is catching up fast, be it a residential
or a commercial plot, building, flat or office space. A customer
can view all the options available on the internet and shortlist
those which are relevant to his needs. So for people, who want
to sell or rent property, it's an advantage to be on the internet
a cost effective medium as compared to other advertising
mediums like the newspaper or the TV.
-Gives you more space to describe your property than
a print media classified ad where you are being charged for
each column centimeter.
- You ad has a longer life on the net and can be viewed
for months unlike a newspaper ad, which fails to survive beyond
- Buyers from any part of the country can view your ad
thus increasing the reach of your ad exponentially.
One such website where you can advertise your property for
selling and renting or want to search property for buying is http://www.99acres.com.
It's the leading real estate website of India where you will find
the latest news on Indian real estate, home finance and NRI services.
Here are some tips on buying and selling property offered by the
team of 99acres.com:
Tips on Selling - Decide a selling price for your home that
would give you some profit but don't overprice it at the same time.
Too much of overpricing will drive away prospective buyers and your
property might remain unsold in the market for a long time, eventually
losing it's appeal and people may not want to buy it later on.
- Make the entrance of your house tidy and attractive as it will
create a good impression on the buyer's mind when he comes to visit
- Involving a property dealer is a good thing to do as they have
hands on experience in getting these deals done and they are aware
of all the legal formalities involved.
- If you have time on your hands, put your home for sale at least
3-6 months before you want to move. This won't let you settle down
for a hurried deal and won't let a buyer take undue advantage of
Tips on Buying- - Before you begin searching for a house,
you not only need to keep in mind your current needs but also consider
your future prospects. How long do you plan to stay in that house?
Will a need for more space generate in the future? And so on.
- Do a check for leakages, dampness of walls, drainage system, water
and electricity supply, water logging etc. of the house you are
planning to buy.
- Create a list of good and bad points along with the prices of
all the houses you have visited and rate them accordingly before
finalizing one home you will buy.
- It's good to involve a real estate professional when getting into
property deals because they are aware of the risks involved and
know how to handle property deals. But choose your home yourself
as you'll be living in it, so even if it takes a little long to
find the ideal home, let your word be the last word.
