Buying property can be nerve-wracking, especially for first-timers. This is because on top of the fact you’re taking on one of the biggest financial commitments of your life, there’s the actual mechanics of buying the property.
Most of the time, when we want to buy something, we just buy it. We don’t need to negotiate the price with the seller (well, except in places like Bali) or be the highest or most attractive offer. Instead, if we want some jeans or a new car, we simply hand over our cash and contently walk or drive away.
