There are many factors when considering a view: jungle versus ocean; closed and intimate versus open and expansive; Infinite Ocean versus Natural Landmark; manyelements are to be taken into account and the final decision depends on the person,their preferences and more often than not, their budget. Many properties offer both ocean and jungle view, depending on the size, some can have expansive views and when moving to another area of the same lot, a closed intimate view can be found. Some buyers need to visit many options, while others know when they’ve found the perfect location as it simply takes their breath away and they feel at home right away. When looking at property, buyers should primarily consider the ground level view, particularly from the areas where most time will be spent, for example the view from the kitchen, the dining area, the balcony and family rooms, which are the most-used rooms in a home, in addition to the master bedroom.
Overall, the home buying process will take care of the decision of what is the right view for the buyer. The first step for the buyer is to define what is important, the available budget, what compromises that can be made and to find the team of professionals that will help during the purchasing process and thereafter. Discussionof plans and needs with the Real Estate agent will provide greater clarity and outline possibilities. Getting input from all the professionals involved when building a budget is most important; accurate costing for expenses, such as soil tests, water tests, road maintenance, good legal counsel, and unexpected costs are to be reflected.
When looking at the property consider a mix of variables, like the essence of the land and the elements that are at play, like the sound of water or the trees that rustle in the breeze. Consider that sometimes a view can change. Inform yourself about the lots around that are for sale, and if in the future your view could become obstructed by a new building not yet erected. Evaluate the natural surroundings as well, perhaps the trees that are planted on a lot below are not yet mature and will grow tall. Look at the risks and legal aspects, take the time required and make the necessary expenditures to get all paperwork, evaluations, tests, and legal background checks complete.
Lean on the reliable team of professionals you have acquired to help pave the way. Ensure that there is access to necessities, like water, electricity and a reliable road. Get your land surveyed. Spend time at the location, take photos, make notes, and go at various times of the day. If you are buying a raw piece of land or planning renovations, when possible include the team of professionals that will be bringing the project to fruition. They can provide valuable insight and they can help save youtime and money in the end. (This last, we’ve all heard it before, but the professionals all repeat it, so please heed the advice).
And finally when a decision needs to be made, first and foremost be sure to buy within your budget. If your budget does not allow for an expansive ocean view and ajungle view, perhaps choosing a more modest ocean view and staying within your budget would be the best option. And a view can always be created, a beautiful garden can flourish and be fulfilling to work towards. And if your budget permits, plan for a little something for every taste. In the end, personal needs, lifestyle, and budget will determine the best view and buy appropriate for the investor.
