Buying a house is one of the most important decisions that you will make in your lifetime. It can be an extremely daunting process, but when it’s done right, owning a house can provide many advantages for people.

What to check out for when buying a house!

According to noted Business Astrologer™ cum Astro Strategist™ Hirav Shah, “When buying a house,  many people often forget about some simple yet important factors which can greatly affect their daily lives when living at their new property.”

Here are a few things to consider when looking for the best house and property for sale.

1] The location – is it close to work, schools, or other amenities that are important to you?

The location of the house you are looking to purchase is extremely important. Make sure that it’s located somewhere where your children can go to school, and make sure that it’s close enough for you to get to work every day. The other thing about choosing an ideal location is making sure that there aren’t any issues with crime rates within the area, as well as whether or not there are any natural disasters such as floods or landslides which could potentially damage your new home over time. Wherever you hope to live, it should be a convenient and residential location, somewhere where you can live in peace and quiet. This will allow you to create a nice, calm atmosphere for yourself without having to worry about noisy neighbors disturbing you.

2] The size and layout of the house – does it suit your needs and lifestyle?

Because a home is a place of comfort and space, you should consider whether the house is big enough for your needs. It’s important to check that all rooms are more or less at an equal size because it can be quite frustrating if one room is bigger than another! Do not forget about storage as well; certain houses have lots of floor space which means there isn’t much need for cupboards, whereas other properties may be on the smaller side, so they might benefit from cupboards in order to store food and clothing. On top of this, think about how many bathrooms there are within the property; ideally, you would want two, but any more than three could prove impractical. Think about what you want from your kitchen. Will it be purely for storage, or are you planning on cooking in there? If so, will the appliances that come with the house fit into your desired layout of worktops and wall space?

3] Maintenance costs for the property

Have a good idea regarding the condition of the house you intend to buy because maintenance and refurbishment costs could be a killer! It is always best to get a professional to carry out an inspection of the house for sale or rent in Kandy or Colombo or anywhere else and its facilities and make a list of any faults or necessary improvements. This will give you an idea as to what repairs need doing and how much these could cost in the future.

4] Neighborhood safety – what’s the crime rate like in this area; how safe will my family be here.

Living in a safe neighborhood is of the utmost importance, especially when you have or plan to have kids. Make sure you know what kind of crime rate this area has or if it is a safe place to live in at night.

5] How much time do I want to spend maintaining a yard or garden on this property?

A garden or yard is important for any home; some people enjoy spending time in it while others prefer having someone take care of the garden. Ask yourself, how much time do you want to spend on maintaining a yard? If that is something you don’t have enough time for or simply hate doing, then consider getting a house with no yard at all.

6] Location of different utilities (water, gas, electric) relative to the house is also important information you need to have.

When buying a house, you need to know where water pipes and gas lines run. In addition, it is important to be aware of the location of electric utilities relative to your property as well. If possible, ask for this information from previous owners, call local power companies, and request a service map where all their main facilities are shown in relation to the street address where you want to buy a home. It’s also useful that people mention whether there were problems with these utilities previously because then you can negotiate the price down depending on what issues arose when the owner was living in a particular area.

The key to purchasing a home is understanding what you can afford, looking for the right neighborhood, and seeking out an experienced real estate agent.

7] Take Property Astrologer or Real Estate Astrologer’s Advice

Last but not least, Hirav Shah says that many property-related matters can be derived from a careful study of a horoscope. An efficient Property Astrologer or Real Estate Astrologer can give property buying advice on the basis of date of birth and horoscopes and with the analysis of the property and also can tell the good and bad aspects of the property you are interested in. He can also tell about the chances of losing property and the risks involved in the investment. An astrologer can also predict what would be the best time for you to buy a house of your own.
