5 mistakes looking for a property

Keep in mind these 5 mistakes when looking for a property!

Cheap houses Valladolid Yucatan. This is what clients are looking for the most, we show them options and then they tell us that they have already found another property elsewhere. Cheaper.

When it comes to buying a home, you don’t just have to think in terms of price. Your house is an important investment, and due to lack of knowledge, clients buy properties that are not ideal.

We share with you some of the mistakes that customers make.

Cheap houses Valladolid Yucatán: frequent mistakes of buyer clients.

Mistake 1: Make the decision based only on price

Some time ago we had two clients, looking for a house in Valladolid. We supported them and within a few days, one of them had already found a property.

His friend continued working with us and we got him one in the Sisal neighborhood. The house cost 650,000 pesos, but with the arrangements made by our client, it doubled the value of the property.

Her friend bought a house in an unattractive neighborhood, far from the center and in an alley. The price had been lower than that of our client’s house, but the poor location makes it difficult for the value of the house to increase.

Mistake 2: Have expectations outside of reality

Cheap houses in Valladolid Yucatan

We have hundreds of clients like that. Looking for a unicorn: colonial house, in the center with large land and below 500,000 pesos.

When they come to visit and are not convinced by the available houses: they decide to wait. We have clients in the database who have been waiting for “an opportunity” for two years.

From time to time we send them properties and they keep waiting. Time passes and prices keep rising. This is common and has a name: analysis paralysis.

Unfortunately many houses in Valladolid fit into the category of “project”. But with a little money and love, they can be a great investment.

Mistake 3: Buying the wrong house

Make a priority list

When a customer calls us we always ask a few questions – this is called customer profiling. Some clients get upset, but profiling the client is very important to find a cheap house for sale in Valladolid.

You can make a questionnaire of what you need and from that list that is or more important. Let’s say you make a list that looks like this:

  • House of 600,000 pesos in Valladolid Yucatan
  • 2 bedrooms
  • 1 bathroom
  • Land of at least 300m2
  • High speed internet access

Once you’ve made your list, you can sort your needs from the most important to the least important.

  • High speed internet access, because all the children of the family study online IMPORTANT
  • Land of at least 300m2, the family has 3 children and two dogs IMPORTANT
  • House of 600,000 pesos, this is the savings that the family has. They cannot exceed this price IMPORTANT
  • 1 bathroom
  • 2 bedrooms

Being clear about your objective helps to outline the properties, to make sure that the house that we show you meets that requirement.

We know that perhaps not all houses meet all the requirements, but it is easier to remove properties with this method.

Error 4: Searching for an “all-in-one” property

Sometimes clients are looking for a multipurpose property. An example is clients who want to buy a house, but later add rooms for vacation rental.

This adds difficulty to something that is already complicated.

The center of Valladolid is ideal to open your business, but not so ideal to live. Small spaces, poor distribution, wall-to-wall houses are some of the characteristics of the houses in this area.

It is best to find a house to live in and a small space for your business
