Master ImageIf you want to buy a house or invest in your own property, you often ask yourself what is best for you: buying a used house or a new one. To make this decision, you need to consider various aspects and advantages that each of the two models offers. In this article, we will explain in more detail the advantages and recommendations for buying a used property.

What are the advantages of buying a used home?

Although buying a new home is an option that many of us have thought about, buying a used home is much more common and attractive. We will explain why here:

  • Location: used homes are usually located in urban areas, strategically located within the city, close to shopping, parks, access roads and public transportation, as well as various areas of interest. This urban development in the area where the used home is located results in commercial appreciation.
  • Delivery times: This is one of the biggest advantages, because since it is not a new house, you do not have to wait for legalization and the purchase contract; or in the case of an off-plan property, a construction phase that lasts for months. Since the property is already built and usually unoccupied and available, the transfer of the property can take place immediately after the completion of the purchase and the deal. However, you must take into account that sometimes the purchase process takes a few days , and you have to wait until it is completed.
  • The price: sometimes the price per square meter is cheaper than new houses, which translates into a more spacious property for the same price as a new house, but with less square meters. In this sense, you can buy used houses with much more space. By not buying new, you save money that you can invest in remodeling your property.
  • Alternatives: although new homes or housing projects are becoming more common, there is still a wider selection of used homes for sale. With so many alternatives to choose from, you can search for used homes that fit your needs and budget.
