Dos and Don’ts in Buying Property in the UAE

There are things in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) that you should not do right away especially when you are not knowledgeable about the country or even the Emirate that you are in.

In the real estate industry, it’s important that you know what you should and shouldn’t do. It is essential that you are aware of the things that come and go. For this, you either need a consultant or a lawyer who can advise you with regard to the legalities in the real estate.

Do not let your investment go just because of mistakes that you should have pretended only if you knew from the start that it was indeed a mistake.

What You Should and Shouldn’t Do in Buying a Property

Don’t rush in choosing a place

Some investors make a mistake in looking to invest in places that they are not supposed to invest in. Depending on the Emirate that you are in, there are certain places that you can’t invest in and you can invest in.

Do a research

You should conduct a research on where you are allowed to invest in that particular Emirate or if you can ask a consultant with regard to that.

Don’t forget about your budget

There are buyers that simply go forward with buying real estate or property because they have been caught with the benefits and the returns that they might get in a year or so only to find out that they can’t afford it.

Do remind yourself

It will do you good if you just simply focus on the property that is in your price range as it will prevent you from being heartbroken by finding something good but not being able to buy it.

Don’t ignore strategy

Some may argue that this is an only investment and you don’t need such a thing. But the strategy will take you a long way down the road in knowing when and how to buy property.

Do plan ahead

If you don’t know how to strategize, you can plan ahead with a broker or someone who is an expert in the field. When you have someone, who is knowledgeable in this field, you can find it easier to strategize and see your options in buying property.

Don’t simply skim the extra prices

There are extra prices that may be involved in buying property. There will be fees that will be included and it will do you good to not skim it and forget that it should also fall under your budget.

Do review the additional fees

There are additional fees that will be involved in purchasing the property. It is best if you know the details before you go to the market and look for the ones you want to buy.

Don’t just pick a broker hastily

There are internet advertisements on brokers, and it’s okay to look for them online but you should be sure that you are picking a legitimate person, not someone who looks like they are going to spoil the art of buying property for you.

Do get references

It is actually better for you to ask around in your family, friends, relatives, or workmates if they have any broker to recommend to you. If they have a good experience with a broker, that person will more likely treat you the same way if they are referred by someone you know. You should also spend time with your broker to know them more.

Don’t use a poor agreement

Do not simply use an agreement that doesn’t look like it’s been drafted professionally. It is not a good thing for you nor for the people involved and might make a mess in the future.

Do use a well-drafted agreement

Ensure that all the details are on the agreement that you are signing with the broker and agency that is selling you the property. A good agreement has everything laid down there. And it will do you good if you read them.
