Buying & Selling Tips

 Mortgages

Mortgages from financial institutions are typically not easy to get.  If you manage to get one the interest rates will be very high. You may be able to arrange one through the seller but in general properties are bought and payed for directly.
 

Title

There are basically two types of properties offered, registered and unregistered. In the larger cities you will find mostly registered in the smaller areas unregisisterd. All properties can be registered but it is always advised to buy a property that is registered
 

Taxes

Typically you will pay a tax on property at the time of sale. In most municipalities you will also pay a yearly property tax. Though by most standards they will be considered low.
