Is it worth getting into a property price dispute?
The dream of having your own house or apartment is shared by millions of people around Brazil.
However, achieving it is not as simple as it sounds. In addition to the financial factor (real estate is generally not cheap), one of the things that can complicate the realization of the desire to own a home is the huge dispute that exists within the real estate market.
That’s because a good location, full of benefits and advantages, certainly attracts many interested parties.
In other words, if you want to close the deal, you will have to “compete” for it. After all, good properties for sale may not be that easy to find. But is it worth getting into a dispute like this?
The first step is to ask yourself: does the property really match what I have been looking for?
If you are single, a smaller apartment or house may be more practical and easier options. On the other hand, if you’re thinking of moving with your family, which may be few or many people, larger places make a lot more sense.
Therefore, it is necessary to consider the number of individuals that will inhabit the residence before thinking about making an offer for it.
However, more than the number of people, it is also necessary to take into account their lifestyle.
If you spend more time outside than indoors, or don’t like to spend a lot of time doing household chores (cleaning, repairs, etc.), again, a smaller location fits better as it won’t require much from you.
However, if you have more time available and have a more homely profile, a larger residence may be a more viable option.
After reaching a conclusion, it’s time to assess the “x” of the issue: money.
How much you can or are willing to spend will obviously make all the difference when making an offer. So, if you are looking for a large and well-located property, be prepared to spend a higher amount.
For a smaller location or a little further from the central regions, the amounts are smaller. Real estate in Curitiba, capital of Paraná, for example, can vary greatly according to the neighborhood.
Central places are generally more expensive, while places in the metropolitan area, which are a little outside the main circuit of the city, are cheaper.
How the property price dispute works
With the taste and financial issues resolved, it’s time to know: whether or not to enter a price dispute? Well, it depends.
Disputes over real estate prices occur when there are several interested parties for the same location, be it a house or an apartment to sell or rent.
From the moment the broker is informed that there is a desire to close the deal, he evaluates the proposal and checks if there are no others interested in also concluding the negotiation.
If there is more than one possible buyer or lessor, there are some situations that can “untie” the score.
Bureaucracy: in case of lease, there are many documents that the lessor in question will need to present.
Some basic ones are identity, CPF and proof of income, for example.
However, in addition to this, the interested party will also need a guarantor, who will also have to have a series of documents and receipts at hand.
Therefore, in this dispute, whoever can present all this material efficiently and quickly is more likely to win it.
That is, if you are willing to enter this battle, assess whether you fulfill all the necessary requirements and if you can solve the bureaucratic area with a quick and complete presentation of what was asked of you.
Money: in the case of property or land purchase, if there is more than one buyer for the same location, it is up to the owner of the location, together with the real estate agent, to increase the price or not.
If the tiebreaker is not the famous “order of arrival”, then whoever is willing to spend more money will take the dispute.
It is necessary to be prepared for this situation or give up the chosen residence and start a new search for something that is close to the initial desire.
Taking all this into account, the answer to whether or not it is worth entering a dispute over a property is: it depends.
It depends on how much you can or are willing to spend, as real estate is not cheap and the ones that are being highly coveted can experience a price increase.
How much time do you have available to search for properties, because if you need a new home urgently, you won’t have much time to choose.
And finally, how well you can take care of the “paperwork” and streamline what you need so that you can close the deal of your dreams.
Did not work? Do not give up!
Perhaps the house or apartment you were in love with ended up being sold or rented to someone else.
This does not mean that you will stop looking for a place or land for sale in Curitiba, São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro or any other region you inhabit. After all, you still need a home.
Our tip, in this case, is to continue accessing search engines and contact real estate agencies.
Describe to them exactly what you are looking for and they will certainly help you find the perfect property or something very similar.
Also talk to friends and family, as they can point you to places that might pique your interest. The important thing is to be always researching and tuned in so that you don’t miss out on good opportunities.
