If you have found a property, and you want to make an offer, I recommend the following: Your offer should include time for you to conduct due diligence, an inspection, or other concerns. Beware of your having to put your deposit into the escrow company before these issues are resolved.
Priority 1 – Comparables. Insist on a comparative market analysis of the “solds” and a list of the competition on the market for sale for any villa or condo you are considering buying. Don’t take no for an answer. Historically there was a precedent of not recording true sales prices. You, as a buyer have the right to information before you spend your money. Until buyers start requiring this information, the normal process of looking and making offers will be problematic. Opinion is cheap and thought requires work.
