Tips for Owning Your First Home

JAKARTA – Ownership of the first home is certainly a dream for everyone. To have a residence, you need to pay attention to various aspects before buying a house. Then, what should consumers know? Check out the recommendations below.

1. Developer Track Record
According to Property Influencer, Talita Crusita Santoso, the goal for consumers is to find out the developer's track record in order to find out the quality and commitment of the developer in building the property they promise. "This will determine whether or not the house will be built. Don't let us have DP and installments, but the house is not built. This happens a lot," said Talita.

2. Property Location
Location is decisive for consumers to buy property. However, the location of the property you want to own does not have to be in the middle of the city. Most importantly, the location is easily accessible by public transportation or private vehicles. "So how do we reach out to it," Talita said. 

3. Facilities
Consumers should pay attention to the facilities offered by developers. The reason is, buying a house is not just having a place to live. But also buy an area equipped with a variety of interesting facilities. "We not only have the building as a place to live, but there is a quality of life. Simply leave the house for 10-15 minutes, consumers can swim and activities with family in residential facilities. So the timing is really effective," said Talita. 

After knowing the requirements in choosing the first property, what other factors need to be considered by consumers? Yup, financial management.

1. Revenue Allocation
Life Coach and Growth Consultant, Jonathan End, said home ownership is a necessity that humans need to have in addition to clothing and food. Therefore, consumers need to manage their income wisely so as not to apply a consumptive lifestyle. By applying this pattern, consumers will know their top priority is to buy a house.
"So other expenses will be reduced first to be diverted to investment in buying a house. The most important thing is that it is set aside at the beginning, not at the end. Usually the opposite, when you get a salary, you spend a lot and the rest is just saved for investment, "he said.

2. Find a Trusted Developer
This factor needs to be considered so that consumers can assess the property and facilities presented by consumers. "Fear, for example, that the developer is not right, then find a good developer," he said. 

3. Take advantage of promos
The next step, consumers also need to review promos offered from developers and financial institutions to buy a property such as promos and the ease of getting Home Ownership Credit (KPR) facilities. Both of these things are very helpful for consumers who want to own their first home.

"When the details of the monthly installments (KPR) for example Rp 2 – Rp 3 million are released, we can estimate the budget allocation to buy property. Over time, income and skills at work can increase to increase income, "said Jonathan. 

So, is there a property that meets the criteria for consumers? Kota Podomoro Tenjo is the answer.
