The first step is to organize your budget and liquidity. If you do not have all the amount you wish to invest in buying a building, you can call a bank for a loan. You will need to choose the bank with which to collaborate and discuss with its representatives about the options you have available. The amount paid by the bank will depend on its conditions and your ability to return the loan.
Next, you have to decide which is the amount you wish to pay in advance, in which situation, you will have to sign a pre-contract. Finally, we must not forget and other costs involved, such as notary fees, property insurance (required if using a bank loan, optional, but recommended if you buy cash) tariffs involved for obtaining a loan application, agency commission.
