Are you condo-hunting on a budget? We know it’s easier said than done. But worry not—finding the perfect space with the right price is no longer a myth, as there are now a lot of flexible payment terms and special promos out in the market. 

But take note that it is important to read the fine print, especially for deals that seem too good to be true. According to a feature on Real Living, here are some of the questions to ask your agent from the get-go:

  • Is the price inclusive of VAT?
  • Who will shoulder the taxes and registration fees?
  • How much is the discount if straight cash payment is made?
  • How much is the discount for down payment?
  • What is the minimum down payment and maximum number of years to pay?
  • How much is the interest rate?
  • Is there a warranty?
  • How many years?
  • How much are the condominium association dues?
