How to Inspect an Apartment before Buying?


Let’s say you are going to buy an apartment. JBL Developers have selected several suitable options for future inhabitants while going for Commodore condo show flat. What should you pay attention to?

Checking the area

Pay attention to the distance from bus stops, shops and other points of interest. Evaluate the proximity and accessibility of public transport, infrastructure development, the condition of roads, sidewalks and courtyards.

In addition, it is important to pay attention to these points:

  • Find out if there are any harmful businesses nearby.
  • If you have children or are planning to have them, find out if there are children’s clinics, kindergartens and schools nearby.
  • Take a close look at the courtyard, playgrounds and parking lots – they will tell you a lot about the social status of the residents.
  • Assess the cleanliness and location of the trash containers.

Write everything down in a notebook and take pictures – this will make it easier to compare the options you like and finally decide on the choice.

The joy of buying even an ideal apartment will quickly fade if the area leaves much to be desired. Therefore, approach the choice of the area with all responsibility.
