Know What You Are Looking For

You must ask yourself a lot of questions up front in order to determine how to start.  What can you afford in terms of down payment, repairs and financing?  What purpose will the property serve?  How much work do you want to put in to the property?  These and many other questions will help you determine the right property to look for.

Be Sure to Look at Many Different Properties

It is never wise to settle for the first property you visit.  Tour many different places so you can compare the features of each.  Decide what is most important to you and always consider the location of the property as one of the most important factors.  Your final choice should be what fits best with your specific situation and needs.  Churchill, Quinn, Richtman & Hamilton’s attorneys have experience in transactions involving office buildings, retail centers, warehouses, and apartment and condo properties so we can help with whatever you decide on.
