Investing in Off the Plan Properties

2010 March 22

When making investments it is common for one to look to strike a balance between expected profits, and the risk involved in the investment.  Of course anyone would like to make huge profits with the least risk, but this seldom happens.  

One such possibility of investments with high yields is by purchasing off the plan units.  An Off the plan unit means that the real estate has not yet been built, and plans and specifications are only on paper.  The advantage of buying this type of property at such an early stage is that it makes it possible to get the property at a very good and reasonable price.  However, it also involves a lot of risk.  The primary risk is that the property will not be built in the first place. Other risks to consider are that the actual building may not be as expected, and the increase in value of the property may not be that big at all.  Banks and lenders take note of these risks, and are thus hesitant to approve a loan for off the plan units.

For those who are adventurous enough to make such an investment it would be best to meet with the developer constantly.  This is to ensure that no double talk was made, and what are in the plans are what are actually implemented.  Some developers say a lot of things to encourage investors to buy off the plan units, however when the actual property is completed, the results are less than satisfactory.  This is why it is important to make sure you read the contract and request for explanation on vague provisions, or ask for modifications in the contract if necessary.

For more information on off the plan units and how to get a home loan for such property, it would be a good idea to consult the experts on home loans.  They can provide the essential information required for purchasing off the plan units.  They can also guide you on what to look out for, and how to get a good investment by purchasing off the plan units.
