  • Choose a location that fits you and your personality. Different regions could have very different ideas of life, conveniences, cultures, religions or habits.

  • Check if you can afford a house. A home is often the biggest investment someone will make in their life. Before buying check if you can afford a house. You need an adequate down payment (10-20%), monthly repayment (33% of your monthly income) and other living costs like government duties. For more information about tax and banking have a look at the Tax Guide and Real Estate & Finance section.
  • Seek advice from an expert. IQI can help you. Do not buy a house based on trends or rumors. This will not mean that it automatically fits for you. Ask yourself if the property really fits you.
