If you are all set to house hunt and are confused about where to begin, we will tell you exactly where to start. And the points that follow will make your house-hunting in the pandemic situation easier.
Research, Then Search
If you have just moved into Bangalore, do not know any of the localities, and are planning to move from your rented apartment, you should do a great lot of research to find your dream home. If you are a person staying in J P Nagar and is planning to move to apartments in Vijayanagar, Bangalore, or for that matter any part of Bangalore, the research is inevitable because you will not be familiar with the neighbourhood. If it was a few months back, our suggestion for you would be to go and explore the region you are planning to buy a home. But now as the Coronavirus is lurking the streets of Bangalore, we would suggest you sit home and do your researches online. Online is the most happening place now, even for house hunting. So, take a stroll on online platforms which will help you understand the localities and the area you like to buy your apartment. You can even check with your friends and colleagues who live in the locality. They might even be able to help you find the right apartment for you.
Locate the green zones
Referring to the green zone you need not get confused. This has nothing to do with the eco-friendly or environment-friendly surrounding. Make sure that the area that you are planning to move into is not a containment zone or a red zone. If at all you select an apartment and then decide on moving without checking, you will end up stuck in between the green zone you left and the red zone you are going to enter. Stay updated with all the news. Get in touch with your Kannadiga friends who can inform you by referring to the local media. There is no point in you vacating from a green zone and packing your bags for the new home which is situated in a containment zone. You might end up homeless. Jokes apart, give priority to your safety.
If at all you finally get to take a tour in person, the only thing you need to be is responsible, for your safety and for the others too. Different regions are at different degrees of lockdown and you need to understand the area where you are going to go house hunting. Make sure that you, your family members, and the person giving you the tour, have all taken the safety measures. Wear a mask the right way and practice social distancing throughout the visit. Stay cautious and avoid touching doorknobs or any other surfaces where you feel an outsider may have touched it. Avoid touching your face, eyes, or your mouth until you wash your hands properly for 20 seconds. Most importantly you can carry your sanitizers with you to be used when opening the doors. You may also ask the person giving the tour to open the windows of the apartment before your visit.

The builder makes sure that the buyer and the employees are taking all the precautionary measures.

So, you can have worriless home tours at Pride apartments for sale on Mysore Road, West Bangalore, or various other parts of Bangalore.
Spacious enough for your office
One of the most important things buyers would always look for in an apartment is for it to be spacious. And the present situation has reason to stress this more. Work from home can become a stressful business if you do not have a private space of your own. If your roommate or your partner is also on work from home, you clearly must buy 2BHK or 3BHK apartments to carry out all your works properly. The things remain same if you live with your family, with kids especially. With an array of options set up by the real estate companies, it will be easy for you to find a 2BHK or 3BHK apartment in West Bangalore, East Bangalore, North Bangalore, and South Bangalore. More spacious your home, better your work from home.
Even though doing things online is easier, you should always be on guard. There are rental scams online, waiting for the unfortunate buyers with the best trap laid for them. Thus, one should be vigilant when house hunting during pandemic without visiting the property. You can always get in touch with a builder directly instead of depending on an individual selling apartment. Most of the leading builders make sure that you get all the trust before taking any further steps. Some of the red signs for you to look out are:
The seller does not show property virtually
The price is too good to be true
The listing has extensive grammatical and/or syntax errors
The seller is rushing you to buy the property
They ask for your financial information
They will ask you to pay in cash
If you are facing any of these situations, research thoroughly or you can just choose to walk away. Any reputed builder who has known the market will give you all the time you need to decide and will have virtual tours and videos available for you. For most of the builders, the priority will be the customers. Most of the leading builders, considering the situation has also laid out offers to cut the financial pressure on buyers.
Take a Virtual Tour
Builders are just as eager to find buyers as buyers are to find their dream home. The real estate companies are adapting to the situation and most of the leading builders have made it sure that the buyers are getting a proper virtual tour to make the purchase happen. You will even be availed with walkthrough videos which will make it easier for you. Unlike the walk-through video, on a virtual tour, you can just use your fingertips to take a look at all the rooms and spaces at your new home.
