7 Tips of Buying a Property “Off-Plan”

July 30, 2022by Winstonfield

Buying off-plan means purchasing property before it has been built. While it may seem risky, buying off-plan has several benefits. The benefits of buying early in development include securing the best plot, as well as locking in a price that is usually below the market price.

When purchasing an off-plan property, there are a few steps you need to consider.

  1. Identify a property development in the area where you intend to live. Our sales team can assist you if you are looking to buy in Limassol or the surrounding area.
  2. Pay your reservation deposit, which will be deducted from your contract exchange deposit.
  3. Hire a lawyer. Your lawyer will go through the same legal steps as you would when buying a house, including conducting local searches and reviewing the contract. Locating the ideal residence for your family

  2. Exchange contracts and pay the deposit. With new-build properties, the exchange of contracts normally happens rapidly, usually within a few days of booking the property.
  3. Keep an eye on the process. You must now wait for your new home to be built. The developer should provide you with regular updates on how the work is developing.
  4. Completion. The developer will provide you with a certificate of completion.
