5 things our property expert tips share before purchasing a property in Cambodia:
1. ” 不要依赖社交媒体或在线信息。 亲自参观这个地方，感受一下周围的环境，并特别注意社区。”
“Don’t rely on social media or online info. Visit the place for yourself and get a feel for the surroundings and pay particular attention to the community.”
“I almost made the mistake of buying a property just because I liked the home itself, I even put down the booking fee and everything without even bothering to look at the community. But good thing I went for a drive with my friend around the area, and we discovered that getting around to the nearest grocery store and amenities were really inconvenient. there is a high tension cable tower nearby & the access to the developments goes through a slum area and homeless area nearby.”
So I ended up not buying that particular property. A couple years later, after a lot of research, I finally found a home that I love because of its design because it’s in a great neighbourhood, with a wonderful community and surrounding environment.”
“If you are planning to eventually settle down and start a family there, look at the nearby schools!”
“When I bought my condo, my son was just a baby and school seemed like such a faraway event. But 7 years go by really fast and we discovered that the nearest school wasn’t as good as we had hoped. So we actually ended up moving to a better school district for my kiddo.
Even if you aren’t married or aren’t planning to have kids, it’s a good idea to look at good school districts, especially if you’re interested in international schools. It makes renting out and selling your property much easier later.”
“Be aware of hidden expenses such as lawyer fees, property taxes, utilities, and maintenance”
“If you’ve been renting for a long time, you may not realise all the ‘sleeper costs’ that come with actually owning a property. On top of your mortgage payment, you need to be aware of other expenses such as property taxes, utilities, repairs, and maintenance that the developer doesn’t tell you.
“Never buy a property based on emotion”
“My best advice is to know the difference between your emotions and instincts. My wife has a tendency to obsess with paint colours and layouts and pretty brick walls. I mean, they look nice but you have to look at the overall value. If you buy based on emotions, you’ll end up getting your heart broken.
“Don’t underestimate the importance of location”
“Sure the commute to and back from your office is an important factor, but more important than that is your family. Your workplace could be temporary, but a home is somewhere your family will settle down in for a long period. You definitely want it to be in a comfortable area that’s not only convenient but also has lots of nearby amenities that will make it the ideal place to stay.”
