After finishing high school your eyes are now set on to making your college and work lives the best time of your life. The biggest decision that you would make during this time is buying your dream house/ apartment to live the memorable days. The kitchen tops, the bath tub, the outdoor pool, they all matter as you are waiting to see all these in your new house/ apartment. Before purchasing the pad of your dreams there are many things to consider which can be shown as belowThe location and vicinityThe most important thing is the location because, as a young adult you will have to go to college, go to work, have a quick run to the store. Make sure the area has plenty restaurants, pharmacies, supply stores and is easily accessible for public transport. Not just for a bachelor pad, for any decision in relation to buying an investment property in Melbourne, the location would be one of the main criteria to look into.The budgetThink of how much you want to spend on buying the property depending on your saving and your ability to pay back property loans. If you are confident that you are able to afford the house that you have set your eyes on go ahead and make the purchase. If your eyes have gotten caught to a bigger house with better facilities but you are unable to make such an investment, and then know that the house you are buying will not be the place you will be spending the rest of your life in. Chances are during another few years you would be looking for houses again. Note down the things that made you attract to the house and make sure to check for them when you go house hunting again. Neighbourhood and the peopleYou will be spending your weekends and free days with your friends at your house simply relaxing by the pool or throwing a crazy party. Whatever it might be, if the people in your neighbourhood would not enjoy what you do, you too might not enjoy it. For example, if you are a party lover talk to the property managers in Melbourne and inquire about the nature of the people around your house. If they are people who like quiet environments, they might not support you or will start complaining about your extended party hours to the local authorities. Room for othersAs a bachelor, you might only need one room aside from the other facilities. However, your friends and family are bound to visit you once in a while and you should be able to provide them some space to rest at your house. So, when looking for houses, look for at least one extra bedroom which you can provide for your friends or family once they pay you a visit.Your first house is a big decision that you would be making so do not take it lightly and ignore common knowledge and understanding before buying and do not fall into traps by the real estate companies. Look for the perfect space that suits your requirements even if they take up a lot of your time.
