Location:

The location of the property is very important for investment. This will be the one of the biggest and toughest decision for the new investors. A good location for your property means that it is easily accessible from different areas in the surroundings, has low crime rate, and people can easily come and go from that area due to good road infrastructure.

A good location decides the future of your property. For example, investment in commercials should be done only where there are great markets or is the city center. This investment will be costly but will give instant ROI to the investors. Investment in residential properties can be done by the investors in both residential and commercial sector. The rental income from your property will fall into commercial sector here. In the same way as commercial sector investment, investment in the residential properties should be also done in a good location which are easily accessible and located in a peaceful locations. Residential properties should not be on the main roads as it will constantly be noisy and the environment will be polluted too.

Layout Plan:

Before investing in any property, the layout and area of the society should be looked at. The layout plan and area of the society indicate a lot of things before investment. The larger the area, more amenities and facilities will be provided into the society such as parks, green belts, commercials, schools, hospitals etc. can only be the part of the societies which have a large area. The society chosen for investment should be more than at least 10 Kanal.

Available Amenities:

Just like the layout and area of the society, investors should look for the amenities a society has promised for the future residents and commercials. The basic amenities for living (electricity, gas, water, sewerage) and facilities like parks, green belts, commercials, schools, hospitals, water filter, wide roads, gated community, and most important security system should be the bare minimum for the investor in this era.

Payment Plans:

Investors should make sure a number of things while looking at the payment plans of the property.

  • Investors should make sure that the property they are investing in should have disclosed all the payments and no hidden charges are present in the payment plan.
  • Down payments of at least 15 % to 25 % should be agreed upon. The lower rates result into large installments which make the investment difficult. So large down payments should be preferred.
  • The down payment amount should be available with you at the moment of investment.
  • The installment plans should be preferred in the case of low budget and installment plan of at least 1 year should be preferred.
  • If investors have a low budget at the very start, it is not necessary to invest in a luxurious property. Low cost properties can also provide great returns.

Taxes:

Before investment, the investors should completely know about the taxes that will be applicable on his property in the future such as property tax, income tax etc.

The investor should know for how long he is going to keep the property in his name and how much taxes will be applicable on the property regardless of the fact that the property is residential or commercial.

Future Prospects of Investing

The main factor to consider after the location of the property is that what are the future prospects of investing in that property? Investors sometime invest in the properties where the prices do not increase or lower down than the paid amount for the property, creating a loss for the investors. Investors should invest in a property that can provide profits if sold in the future.
