Moving to a new place can be hectic in so many ways, but Robert and his team made finding a new home so simple and easy! I can't imagine what finding an apartment in a new country, city and language would have been like without their help and attentiveness to my personal preferences. Thank you all for making my transition smoother!
Can I purchase property as a foreigner? How?Yes, foreign investment in real estate is common practice and a significant driver for the economy in Morocco. However, establishing a team of professionals (i.e. agent, notary, lawyer) is advised to avoid fraudulent, tedious, or even costly transactions
Is a 2nd home or vacation home in Tangier a good investment?Yes. Here are some factors that will help your investment accomplish the goals you have in mind. Location, more than any other factor, will determine the quality of your investment. Searching in well established, city center and urban areas that have convenient access to shops, dining, and the city's amenities will ensure that your investment will continue to grow in value over time. Finding a professional manager will increase the return on your investment year over year while also providing detailed insight into market trends for your specific property that help determine when is the best time to sell or not.
What's the first step of the home buying process?Understand the why and consult with an agent or someone you can trust that is knowledgeable about the process. Buying a home can be many things: fulfilment of a dream, an investment, a blessing. But, doing it the wrong way can turn a dream into a stressful nightmare. Getting clear on why you want to buy a home (i.e. financially able and stable to move from renting to homeownership, my family will thrive better with more space, I am prepared to invest in something that will grow in value over time) will help bring clarity and prepare you for the process of buying your home.
How long does it take to buy a home?Setting your move-in date is exciting, so it’s important to understand the timeline so you that excitement doesn’t turn into frustration. Allow up to 6 weeks for property selection and 2-4 weeks from the time you select the property for purchase until you move in. Important to remember to give proper notice to avoid unnecessary fees if currently renting. Your research can start with free resources online and ultimately result in the selection a high quality (your best interest at heart) experienced (has transacted multiple times in the past year) professional (not your brother's friend's uncle's golf buddy) real estate agent to assist in the process (saves time and money). Some important things to keep in mind: set aside 1-2 days per week to view properties, be realistic with expectations, be decisive.
