There are still many other factors that support the rising property prices. But, it is hard to guess when the price goes up and up to how big the increase. Instead of wondering pairs better with a long-term targets follow the development of national economy.
Currently, the crisis was engulfing Europe and the United States (U.S.), but these external factors will not affect much on the economy of developing countries. Thus, property prices will not fall upon this sentiment.

2. Do not blind information
Once you seriously want to put some funds in a property, search for deep information about the industry, ranging from enterprises to the current trend. There have been many stories of developers who asked for a down payment after it disappeared swallowed by the earth before the property was completed.

The old adage says, buy a house that is not too far from downtown. No need to complete with supporting facilities such as lifts and swimming pool or gym, but try the location does away with the general means.
The location is close to downtown is good, but watch the growth of his city in what direction. Do not let the suburban location of the property we would not even be developed by the government.
Buy property adjacent to the railway station is always the best option because the facility will continue to be used in a long time. When populations are increasing rapidly, the mass transport will become increasingly important.
But be careful to areas that have a negative sentiment, such as near airports or terminals that are always crowded. In fact, inter-city roads are very busy every day can be a problem. Such areas should be avoided.
Notice the people around, like what people who live in the area. Selections are also those who intend to rent your property, do not accept just anyone.

Use this savings as your reserve fund. These funds can be used for treatment or even widening of your assets. You must be disciplined with this fund, should not be used for anything else except for your property.
7. After purchase, keep saving
If it is still possible, after you buy the property and have a reserve fund, you should continue saving. But, if you buy a property to live in, then you better speed up repayments only if there is more money.
By paying more quickly, then the total cost that you can spend less, especially to avoid the burden of interest repayments. It is more profitable than saving more money in savings.
However, if you buy property for rental purpose. So, let the rent is responsible for the mortgage. Lebihnya money you can save.
