5 reasons why you should buy a ready-to-move-in property


5 reasons why you should buy a ready-to-move-in property-main


Here’s the answer to every property investor’s age-old dilemma. 

Purchasing under-construction property has become somewhat of a trend lately. It doesn’t come as a surprise. With the incentives and early bird offerings by developers, it can be cheaper than buying a completed property. Most buyers are seduced by the Defect Liability Period which acts as a warranty for their houses. Buyers have the right to request for any defective material and workmanship to be remedied within the period of 12 months.

After all, we Malaysians love discounts and freebies!

A word of caution before you jump the gun. This does not mean that purchasing under-construction property is the ultimate choice. Whether you choose an under-construction property or a completed one, the choice you make will benefit you differently depending on your needs. Nonetheless, buying a ready-to-move-in property has its own perks. Don’t believe us?

Check out these top 5 reasons why you should buy a completed home.

1. What you see is what you get

If you prefer to personally pick the leanest meat or freshest fish at the grocery store, you definitely want to have a similar feeling when buying a big-ticket item like a home. When buying a completed home, you get to experience the quality of the final product. Fussy customers can bring a measuring tape to check the size of the home, climb up the roof or even count the number of tiles. If you are satisfied after viewing the actual unit, you definitely wouldn’t mind emptying your 20-year old piggy bank to purchase a comfortable roof above your head.

2. Know your neighbours

Some people fall in love at first sight, while others gradually turn into arch enemies. With a completed home, you may familiarise yourself with the people living around you. The last thing you want is to have a lovely home, soured by nasty neighbours. It is important to know in advance how active and mature your prospective neighbourhood is. It is equally important to check out connectivity to your new home, visiting nearby shopping malls, entertainment outlets, schools and hospitals around the area.

3. You can move in immediately

The best thing about buying a completed home is that you get to move in almost IMMEDIATELY. You don’t need to wait (till your hair greys) for your home to be built. Just visit the potential home, fall in love with it, sign the SPA and settle down. Definitely easier than getting a life-long partner.

4. Pay less, save more

A deal that sounds too good to be true, probably is. So the saying goes. No such worries when buying a completed home. Buyers usually have to pay interest on their loans while their homes are under construction. When you choose to buy a home that has been completed, you actually save money because you do not need to pay interest –just pack your bags and move right in. Talk about killing 2 birds with a stone!

5. You get to enjoy freebies

Don’t Malaysians especially love freebies? Nobody cares about a RM1 ice cream, but people will queue from Kuala Lumpur to Singapore for any BUY 1 FREE 1 promotion. Jokes aside, buyers usually get more freebies from developers selling completed units. You’ll stand to benefit from things like free movein services, free furnishing vouchers, free SPA and loan legal fees and then some!

6. Where to buy?

Yes, we know we promised you 5 top reasons, but since we are feeling generous, we are throwing in an extra tip. After reading the reasons above, you are probably itching to buy a completed home right now!
