Whenever we buy a real estate property, as ordinary customers we usually concentrate on the commercial aspects and other logistic related matters. We pay more attention to the cost of the property, its location, the size and age of the property, the blueprint for the entire home or apartment. We also spend a lot of time identifying the right financier for mortgage loans for funding the real estate purchase. While all this indeed is great news, we must understand the importance of having some technical knowledge about the property that we are buying. However, it may not be possible to go into deep details about the same. But we certainly can have some superfluous knowledge provided we spend some time and effort.
There are a number of technical terms and phrases that are commonly used in the real estate industry. For example, it is very common to come across terms such as easements, plinth area, carpet area, and other such terms. Having some basic knowledge of the same would be extremely useful in dealing with sellers if you are buyer or with buyers if you are a seller.
Most of us would also be aware that property appraisers and valuers in Melbourne have a very important role to play. Hence, it is important for us to understand these terms to better understand the valuation reports that are submitted by these professionals. They will mention quite a few new terms and unless one is updated with such technical terms it may be difficult to understand the valuation report in totality. The same is the case with real estate lawyers’ reports and findings. They will keep using many of these technical terms and basic knowledge of the same is extremely important. There are many websites that could be used to get the right information and meaning about these technical terms and phrases.
