WHEN BUYING A LAND, 7 IMPORTANT ASPECTS
Each family chooses where to live, but where there are nuances that we at Mateo International have learned to reveal, as a result of experience with all our clients.
What are the aspects to assess when choosing a plot?
LOCATION IS FUNDAMENTAL
Most people are clear about whether they want to live near an urban center or, on the contrary, away from noise.
Geographical criteria: where do you want to live?:
Two factors come into play: The economic and the taste of each one.
It is true that the land with the highest demand and highest cost is found in residential areas, Premium located near the coast or urban centers.
However, more and more, especially foreigners, are no longer interested in them and prefer to acquire large plots in the interior where they can find a different environment that is more isolated and quiet, as well as more authentic, more traditional.
THE VIEWS AND ORIENTATION
They focus the interest of those clients who are looking for a plot to build their own house. Nobody wants to wake up in the morning and see a concrete wall or a busy road.
Everyone wants "unobstructed views"; a sense of space between my house and the rest of the world. If in these unobstructed views we include the sea, so characteristic of our regions of the Mediterranean coast, or the mountains, or the countryside, we will find the magic formula.
In addition, we all seek to have a comfortable home: warm in winter, cool in summer. And to have a cozy home orientation is essential.
THE SLOPE OF THE LAND
It influences and favors the views, but it also affects the cost of construction.
THE SURFACE IS IMPORTANT
There is something for all tastes in this. From our experience, clients, usually foreigners, who want vast tracts of land seek privacy. There are also people who are looking for the minimum plot to have their small entertainment space with the least maintenance effort and cost.
Of course, whatever the surface, you have to consider the layout of the plot, especially in small plots. The more proportionate the length and width, the greater acceptance
LEGAL CRITERIA: WHERE CAN YOU BUILD?
The really important thing is to know if the land has the condition of solar; that is, if it has the urban qualification and can be built on it. And these are the lands that are of interest if the objective is to build a house.
TECHNICAL CRITERIA: WHAT CAN YOU BUILD?
It is the partial plans that determine when a house is going to be used for residential purposes and its technical building characteristics; that is: single-family, isolated, non-isolated, building coefficients, height, boundaries, occupation of the plot, etc.
There is also the option of building a house based on more restrictive criteria, this is the case of rural land or those that require urbanization, such as urbanizable land.
It is a fundamental aspect at the time of any economic transaction.
