Estate Homes Fourways

Estate Homes in Gauteng they depend on your information source, you will get a different answer to the question of what can be classified as a luxury home. The greatest difference in definitions is between towns; however, there seems to be agreement regarding the upper end of homes.

Homes that are unquestionably luxurious, are worth tens of millions of dollars or more. They have incredible amenities, professional landscaping and property planning, and are generally massive in size with ten or more bedrooms. These homes are advertised nationally and internationally. Real estate agents for these properties have additional responsibilities involving trusts, attorneys, and anonymity issues.

No one seems to question that these homes, often owned by extremely wealthy and usually famous people, are luxurious. In fact, these homes in Gauteng should be called “super luxury” homes to differentiate them from other high end homes.

In an entirely different class, the other group of luxury homes, are advertised locally. Property in the US that is valued at over a million dollars is usually considered luxury real estate. Consumers in high socio-economic groups are the target for these properties.

This second group of homes may have features such as wet bars, designer kitchens, wine cellars, theatre seating, in-ground pools, security systems, professional landscaping, heated floors, and tennis courts. These homes are generally larger than average with good locations, amenities, property entries, and entertainment capabilities.

Luxury homes tend to have entertainment rooms with features such as built in seating and high end, up-to-date technology for the best movie watching experiences. Designer kitchens are also very trendy in high end homes with features such as custom paneling for appliances, extra under-the-counter refrigerators or beverage centers, and wine bars that fit among the kitchen pantry and other storage cabinets. Designer kitchens also include granite countertops, high end fixtures, customized storage drawers, and pullout pantries.

There’s no question that this second group of homes are also desirable homes to live in. However, are they really in the same class as homes in Gauteng  which are also called luxury homes?

In both groups of homes, location, amenities, property entry, entertainment capability, and landscaping are considered. Most luxury homes offer a combination of desirable natural elements such as ocean proximity, views, or climate, and professionally designed landscaping and architecture. But really, if a 1.2 million dollar, lakefront home with a dock and a swimming pool is a luxury home, then Mariah Carey’s home must be a “super luxury” home.

If you are unsure how to categorize your home, your best bet is to talk to an Accredited Luxury Home Specialist (ALHS). Real estate agents with this specialty are knowledgeable about national luxury home trends, luxury buyer and seller needs, and the development of unique high level services.

High End Real Estate Agent

Most people don’t buy or sell real estate very often, so lots of myths have grown up around the processes and people involved. Here’s an examination of the top 10 myths about real estate.

Myths about Real Estate Agents

1) All real estate agents are the same

Totally false. Commissions, working practices and success rates vary vastly across agents. Do a little research to find the right person to work with.

2) All estate agents make a fortune

False. The commission may seem like a big chunk, but most agents only get paid when a deal goes through. Many houses are marketed by multiple agents.who may put in lots of work for no return on some houses.

3) Estate agents will do and say anything to make a sale

Almost always false. Sure there are dishonest estate agents out there, but most rely on client satisfaction and recommendations to thrive, so it’s in their interest to be honest.

Myths about Selling Houses

4) You don’t need to prepare a house for sale

So false it could cost you thousands! Most buyers want a ready to move into house, and don’t have a lot of imagination. General cleaning, minor repairs, and tidiness make a real difference to the chances of selling a property quickly and for the best price.

5) You’ll make more if you market the property yourself

Generally false. You won’t pay commission, but the agent will reach a far larger audience than you can, and they have the expertise to make sure the deal goes smoothly.

6) You should price high so you can come down

True, to a limited extent. There’s no harm in putting your hoped-for price up as a starting point, but you need to be realistic. Potential buyers won’t even look at a place that’s totally outside their price range.

7) If a property doesn’t sell in the first month, it won’t sell at all

Generally true! Potential buyers will look with suspicion at anything that’s been on the market for a while. This is the major reason why getting the price right and preparing the property for sale are important.

8) Spring is always the best time to market a property

Often true…But some properties have special circumstances. A beach house will sell better in high tourist season, while a ski chalet might do better if marketed in the winter.

Myths about Buying

9) You don’t need to worry about the finances until you’ve found the right house

False. Having your financial arrangements in place before you find your dream property means you can move quickly. This could make the difference between securing the deal or getting pipped at the post.

10) You can’t go wrong by investing in property

Mostly true…in the UK. The ups and downs in the property market over the years have left people with negative equity for a time, but the chronic housing shortage in the UK generally makes property a safe investment. Still things can go wrong, surveys and searches help reduce the risk of this.

If you’re buying property out of the UK things, become more complicated You really need an agent who’s familiar with the local regulations and market conditions, such as Saas-Fee real estate which offers properties in Switzerland.

Most other countries don’t suffer from the chronic property shortage which keeps UK prices high, so you need advice to make sure your investment is sound. Also the rules and regulations are different in different countries, again an agent that understands the local requirements will make sure you’re fully legal and protected.

If you’re interested in buying a luxury house, this post is for you.

This is definitely an exciting time for buyers who are shopping for high-end homes, and Winnipeg has a lot to offer when it comes to ritzy properties. However, the luxury home buying process is one you’ll want to do your homework on if you’re interested in buying a dream home and not just a big house.

Take a look at these tips from the luxury home market before committing to anything and making a purchase

1. Patience is a virtue

If you’re considering buying a luxury house, you should learn to be patient. Making a hasty decision will only lead to buyer’s remorse. You don’t want that. What you want is the best value for your money.

2. You can’t always trust the photos

The best advice I can give you here is to not dismiss a house just by looking at the photos. The only way you can truly appreciate the real value of a home and to find out if it’s right for you is by seeing it in person.

3. There are no standards when buying a luxury house

It’s impossible to say what the perfect luxury property would look like. It all depends on your taste and your needs, so don’t let yourself become totally influenced by trends. Do some soul-searching instead.

Luxury Homes should fit your lifestyle

4. It’s more important to find a house that truly fits your lifestyle

You may find a beautiful property with a gorgeous pool which your friends will love, but if you don’t like to swim, it might not be the best choice for you. Your home should allow you to do more of the activities you’re passionate about.

5. The pool of buyers you’re competing against is a lot smaller

This is only one more reason to be patient. Less competition means you have more chances of finding an incredible home and getting a great deal. That’s if you don’t rush into anything.

6. Financial documentation is a must

It’s just better to document everything when buying a luxury house. Also, you should consider planning ahead. Getting your financial documentation together at the last minute can be stressful and simply not worth it.

7. A good agent won’t make the decision for you

I always try to give the best advice and give suggestions using my expertise and knowledge, but I never make the decision for my clients. At the end of the day, you need to feel comfortable knowing that it’s you who made the final call.

8. It’s best to work with a local REALTOR®

If you’re interested in buying a luxury house, you should rely on an agent who is familiar with the local market and knows all the hidden treasures in the area you are interested in.

Living and working in Winnipeg, I’m confident that I can provide you with the information you need to make an informed decision if you’re interested in buying a property here.

9. You can find the best luxury estate there is

You just need some help. I’d love to hear more about what exactly you’re looking for in a home and we can work together towards finding a property that fits your criteria perfectly.

Let’s start with a FREE, no strings attached consultation and you can tell me more about your new dream home.
