by : Cheow Yu Yuan

If you are relocating and looking for a property to buy, this article will be helpful to you. If you do not intend to hire a real estate agent to find a property for you and prefer to DIY, then you must know where to effectively look for properties that are put up for sale by hungry sellers.

A real estate agent can be a great helper for you when looking for property to buy, because he or she has the experience in the market. However, without the agent, you can still do it. Now, let me share with you 3 tips that you can use to locate your ideal property:

1.Get online. As search engines like Google and Yahoo has made searching information on the Internet so easy, you should get online and look for property for sale. On the Internet, there are many reputable real estate websites and portals with tons of property listings. In each listing, there will be details like the address, sq ft, number of rooms and pictures. Some of the listings will have selling price too. All these information are very useful and you can browse through tons of property in your chosen area online without the need to manually visit the properties first. Pick up a few that you like online and arrange appointments with the owners or agents for viewing.

2.Target foreclosure deals. Attend any foreclosure event in your local area to look for bargains and deals. Those people are eager to sell off their properties. Who knows? Maybe you can find your ideal house there.

3.Read your local newspaper. Newspaper is one of the most common channels that people use to list their properties for sale. However, the only disadvantage is that there is limited space available and you will not have the luxury to view pictures of the properties beforehand. Browse through the real estate classified listings and look up for potential property for sale.

When buying properties, you need to stay calm during negotiation. Do not give in for the first few offers. Always negotiate for a better deal. One trick is to always state a price that you are willing to pay, which is way below market rate. Then slowly negotiate your way up. If you quote a price that is too close to market rate, you will lose ground during negotiation and probably paying more than you should.

Hope that you can benefit from these tips that I have share with you. Leverage on those 3 channels to look for your ideal property now.
