POOR INSIGHT IN PROPERTY ACQUISITION LEADS TO DISASTER


Most clients that are not well-informed and who want to purchase a property often do so on their own without consulting with experts in the field. So with minimal experience they plunge into it. In a situation like this, they are unable to make the right judgment with regards to the best choice of property. They get carried away by their emotion. In fact, sometimes such clients fall in love at first sight with a property which upon more investigation reveals other issues to put into consideration in making a choice.

The seemingly low price tag of a given property is enough to sweep an unwary client off his feet. They get overwhelmed. The anticipated feeling of satisfaction and joy resulting from the likely purchase wash over them. This creates a tunnel vision situation. The potential seller may have a hidden agenda for wanting to sell the property. Unless you are a guru in the field you may never spot the underlying seller's motive.

To illustrate, a seller may figure out that his property is situated in a position where, later in the future, will be the confluence of erosion. Armed with this awareness he puts out the property for sale. Unsuspecting buyers soon begin to submit bids. The transaction proceeds with haste and sold quickly even before the buyer has enough time to assess the property properly.

Then in no distant future, erosion begins to find home for itself near your property. When the surrounding plots are developed, erosion which would have been absolved by the vegetation, now moves closer to you and if care is not taken it finds a permanent home with your property. Gradually, the veil that prevented you from sensing this situation soon disappears, you now know that you are in for trouble.

This is the situation for some who have spent their entire savings erecting a befitting structure on the land. At such a critical time that they need a comfortable abode after retirement, the dreaded erosion comes with such a terrible speed to chase them out of their beloved home. To get a better grasps of this situation, i urge you to observe your surroundings very carefully and you are likely to see abandoned buildings. This is the case in most parts of Nigeria.

WHAT SHOULD YOU DO THEN TO PREVENT THIS FROM HAPPENING TO YOU?

Consider this: if you have typhoid you don't go about buying any drugs and popping them in unless off course you want to kill yourself. But rather you consult your doctor for a prescription. If you want to learn to drive you request the services of a competent driver unless off course you want disaster by attempting to do it all alone. Similarly, resolve to consult with an expert before you attempt to make a purchase. Have you ever experienced the type of situation described above? Then let us know about it by commenting below.
