Under-Construction or already made properties? Which one do you prefer?

Buying a home is both an exciting and a tedious thing to do. As a buyer, you should be conscious of every detail that goes into buying your own place. When buying a home, you have to consider the design, the number of rooms and the neighborhood you want to live in.

Under-construction property


Before buying your home, you should bear in mind that buying in a new construction, or an off-plan property is a good option for many reasons. However, this option is not perfect. Nothing in life is anyway!

There are advantages and disadvantages of buying an under-construction unit. Buying off-plan is not only affordable but you can also design and customize your unit the way you want it to be.

Moreover, it can be cheaper than buying a pre-made apartment. You can save a lot of money just by buying off-plan.

Another plus to buying a house under-construction is that You  do not have to worry about repairs for the next decade or so, since you, yourself have designed or witnessed how your place was built.

Nonetheless, buying a new construction house has its disadvantages. For example, when you buy under-construction property, sometimes you do not get what you have been promised. This is the most common complaint when buying off-plan.

The market outlook may also change in the future. This means that by the time you move into the place, you have paid more than what it is really worth.


Pre-made property

The good thing about buying a pre-made unit is that it is immediately available and you can move in that fast. This might be a plus if you need the house right now.

Also, what you see is what you get. the designs in a pre-made home may not suite your taste or be your first choice, but at least you do not choose something and then move in to find something else entirely.

Keep in mind


  • Buyers should check the background of the builder that they have selected. If you mostly see complains about them, then it may not be a good building company.
  • Both choices have advantages and disadvantages, consider your options thoroughly and see if your choice is worth it before you buy.
  • Think of how deficiencies can affect your daily life. Even the most simple repairs can ruin your day. So always keep in mind to know your builder.
  • Taxes in buying a pre-sale is lower compared to the pre-made.
  • Of course if you buy under-construction, you may deduct all unimportant miscellaneous fees that you may need to pay if you buy a pre-made.
  • The buyer should examine all paperwork thoroughly before signing up. And ask questions regarding the terms and conditions before agreeing on a contract.

Finally, what should you choose? Well, it depends on your financial status. If you think you can save more in a pre-made rather than a pre-sale, then it should be your choice. Just be careful on what you select. Bear in mind that whatever choice you make, it should be beneficial for you.
