This way, after defined your maximum budget to invest in a property in South Bali Area, you will have to ask yourself some key questions. They will be essential for your research.
WHERE DO YOU WANT TO HAVE YOUR PROPERTY IN SOUTH BALI?
This is actually the 1st decision you take when you start hunting for a property. You have to choose the best location that suits your preferences and needs. For example, the location needs to be not too far from schools for your kids.
Also, visiting villas is a good way to discover the area and see what it offers. Especially, shopping and restaurant areas, schools, hospitals, proximity to the beach, sunsets and, distance to the airport. A reasonable driving distance of dining out, shopping, entertainment, and recreational activities is essential.
You should also check if there are any construction projects to be built around the villa. Also, if the property is in close proximity to a Temple, your street, or streets leading to it, maybe blocked in ceremony days.
HOW BIG YOUR VILLA NEED TO BE?
For this, ask yourself
How many bedrooms do you need?
The range is commonly from two to six bedrooms.
Do you plan to invite family and friends?
If yes, an extra bedroom may be a good idea.
Visiting villas is also a good way to visualize square meters. In fact, go see a property and check if you need bigger or smaller. Make sure you have parking for all your vehicles.
THE STYLE OF VILLA
