Checklist for the purchase of a first apartment or a first house

Set the budget

Evaluate your monthly repayment capacity, as well as the amount of your contribution to define your budget. The online simulation of the mortgage loan offered by Immoweb offers you directly the best available rate.

Tip: The amount of the monthly repayment of your mortgage should not exceed 1/3 of your income.

Pay attention to detail

When buying a property, try to anticipate maintenance costs as much as possible. Check the condition of the roof, boiler, electrical installation, frames, as well as insulation.

If you are buying an apartment, examine the common areas, ask for the amount of condominium fees and those of any planned work.

Ask your loved ones for advice

Before signing the sales agreement, do not hesitate to make a counter-visit with your loved ones. They will be able to draw your attention to certain defects or comfort you in your choice.
