<p><strong>The Pros and Cons of Buying New or Used Real Estate</strong></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>See what the differences in price, parking space, property tax, condominium, size, finish, warranty, leisure area and payment method tend to be.</p> <p>Property under construction: there are advantages and disadvantages compared to used ones</p> <p>Belo Horizonte &ndash; The real estate market offers a wide range of options, both in relation to old properties and new housing models.&nbsp;When approaching the subject, the consultant and adviser of the Minas Gerais Real Estate Market Chamber (CMI/MG), K&ecirc;nio de Souza Pereira, highlights aspects that should be considered before making a final decision.</p> <p>Souza Pereira, who is also director of Caixa Imobili&aacute;ria &ndash; Netim&oacute;veis, recalls that society, concepts, materials and architecture have evolved.&nbsp;&quot;In the 60s, there were few families with more than one vehicle, and apartments with leisure areas, courts, swimming pool, etc. were rare.&quot;</p> <p>&ldquo;Nowadays, apartments with four bedrooms, three or more parking spaces and a leisure area with various equipment are common.&nbsp;Therefore, nothing better than analyzing all the variables carefully&rdquo;, he says, and emphasizes that a good practice is to count on the help of a specialized consultancy in the real estate area.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>To help with the reflections he suggests as essential, prior to the purchase decision, the lawyer listed in topics the advantages and disadvantages present in new and old properties, as follows.</p> <p>Value: Old properties are sold for a lower value than new ones, and this difference makes the acquisition easier.&nbsp;There is also the possibility of the buyer, with the money he has at his disposal, to acquire an old property with dimensions larger than a new one.&nbsp;On the other hand, acquiring a property that is new or under construction from a construction company makes installment payments or financing easier.</p> <p>Size: Old buildings offer, among their advantages, the fact that they generally have larger rooms, considering that in the past couples had more children and, due to the custom of the time - living in houses, the buildings were built with more apartments broader than the current ones.&nbsp;For example, a three-bedroom apartment was built between 1970 and 1980, with an internal area ranging from 115 m2 to 130 m2, whereas today the dimension is around 75 m2 to 105 m2.</p> <p><a href=\"http://tajarat.com.pk/\">http://tajarat.com.pk/</a> strives to be Pakistan&#39;s biggest real estate developer ever, guaranteeing the highest international standards, prompt execution, and lifetime customer loyalty.
