Do you want to buy a property as a private investor? Then you want to make the right purchase to have the best investment. This article gives you 3 tips to make sure you can judge your property purchase as good as possible.
Tip 1: Check the documents of the Home owners association
It is important to ask for the documents of the Home owners association as soon as possible when you buy an appartment. You can check whether this association is healthy or if there is large maintenance to be done. This is important in the calculation of your efficiency. Also check whether the Association fee is paid by all members and how much money there is in the spare fund. This is all information from the financial documents that can be valuable to you. Also read the most recent minutes and the internal rules to see if any conditions apply.
Tip 2: Approve the equipment
Check what equipment is present in the property. What is the year of construction and when was the last maintenance? Knowing this beforehand can save you a lot of unexpected costst.
Tip 3: Check whether there are lease contracts
Often, a lease contract is closed for the equipment in the house. As investor, you have the choice to take over this lease or not. If you don't, you are responsible for the new equipment. Do you want to take over the contract? Then make sure your customer number is known by your tenants and your property investor in case of malfunction.
In the first couple of months in 2019, the rental prices in the free sector have gone up further. These numbers were published by rental platform Pararius. The price per square meter went up with an average of 4,9 percent in the first quarter of 2019; tenants pay now an average of €16,33 per month per square meter. In the smaller areas around the big cities, the rental prices have gone up even harder. The increase was higher in places like Haarlem, Schiedam and Almere than in Amsterdam and Rotterdam itself. Pararius indicates that the growth of the population is high in the smaller areas, but the building of new houses stays behind. This is an explanation for the increase in rental prices in the free sector.
In 2018, individual landlords owned over 475.000 houses together, destined for rent. This is 6 percent of the total housing amount, according to the Central bureau of statistics (CBS). The total housing supply amounted to approximately 8 million houses, of which 42 percent were rental houses. The majority of these was owned by corporations, but the other 31 percent was in hands of individual owners, companies and investors.
Most individual landlords are active in the Randstad (Amsterdam, Utrecht, Den Haag, Rotterdam). Here, a quarter of the houses rented out by individuals takes place. Also in Groningen the amount of houses rented out by individuals is high. Individual renting can also mean renting out a house temporarily via a platform such as Airbnb. Most individual landlords have 1 house destined for renting out, but there is a small group (4 percent) that rents out 5 or even more houses.
