Due Diligence

Do Your Due Diligence

As is true with any major purchase, you should thoroughly investigate your investment before you go through with a real estate transaction. Always do your homework. Although it may be tempting to purchase a property without taking time to dig into it, we do not recommend it. Here are a few suggestions:

  • Read the contract in full.
  • If possible, physically visit the property.
  • If the property is a multi-family, acquire rental history, vacancy rates, etc.
  • Know the area in which you are buying, so you know what to expect of that market.
  • Consult a local broker.

If a buyer is not certain that he or she want to purchase a particular property, then that buyer is advised not to bid on the property. If a buyer has not inspected and/or not performed due diligence on a property and desires to do so before purchasing the property, then that buyer is also advised not to bid on the property. As always, feel free to contact a Micoley representative at 888-869-5672 with any further questions.
