Congratulations! You have capital and made up your mind to purchase a property. However, have you consider what kind of hidden costs are there? Let’s look at the basic types not in any order.

These are probably the basic types of cost in real estate that I have come up with. I am sure there are other hidden costs that your real estate advisor and a lawyer can explain depending on the property location.
Each cost that discussed here has its own length. One can argue on it. However, this is from an experience. Sometimes, you have to be careful when you argue costs with the labour. They will shut down the operation and you will be in shambles and simply looking for other contractors. This will raise your operation budget and the time to finish the project. You have to understand that creation is not easy. Patience is the key.
- Property investment is an emotional investment
- Buying property because everyone is doing it

I usually hire real estate advisors and pay them in advance. Why? I know that I will call my advisor on a minute basis to get information on a real estate. I want to make sure that the advisor is not annoyed by my repeated calls in 30 minutes. In simple English, I am basically purchasing their minutes to answer me and explain what I need to learn.
The faster you move; the faster you close the deals, the faster you make money. Never underestimate anyone when it comes to investing. As an investor, your job is to gather information and not judge. Well, we shouldn’t be judging anyone anyway.
Paying in advance is more like a top up thing. You have to make sure whoever you hire are happy to work with you. You have to treat them as you. They are working for you. They are your shadows. So, you basically you clone yourself in to different human being. However, the goal remains the same. Each person is doing a specific task to gather information.
