Already Built or Under Construction, Which One is Better 

You can buy a condominium that's already built or perhaps previously owned. The advantage of buying a condominium in David Panama that's already built is that you can move immediately. Some units are even fully furnished with appliances and furnitures. Prices would understandably be higher than condos that are still under construction. Here are some things to look at when shopping for a condominium in David City that's already standing.

  • Check all the appliances provided if they are in good working condition.

  • Water supply is very important. Make sure to check all the plumbing and faucets and see to it that water pressure is adequate.

  • The weather in David is hot. If the unit has air-conditioning, check if it's working and if it's adequate to cool the entire condominium unit.

  • Check the walls and ceilings and identify if there are indications of leaks. Do the same for the floor. Noticeable cracks can indicate that the unit is not in good order.

  • Check the electrical wiring and make sure that all the switches, sockets and lights work properly.

  • Test all the doors and cabinets and see to it that they all work properly.

  • Make sure that the description of the seller matches what actually see.

Although purchasing a condominium still under construction can be a risk, there are some guidelines to follow to protect your investment. Buying a condominium unit still under construction is generally cheaper compared to buying one that's already built. Here are some things to look for when investing in a condominium unit that's still under construction:

  • The reputation of the developer is very important. Research on their past projects. If they did good in the past, chances are they will be able to deliver their promise.

  • Location is one reason you're investing on a condominium unit instead of a house and lot. Make sure the construction site of the new condominium is accessible to the places you will be frequenting.

  • The turn-over date or the completion date is another thing to look out for. Compare this with when you want to move. An attractive condominium that will be completed four years from now may not suit your needs if you want to move soon.

  • Investigate the financial status of the developer. Although past successes can be a good indication that they can deliver, a little research on the developer's current financial status would go a long way in protecting your investment.

Whatever kind of condominium unit you choose to purchase, due diligence is very important. The property market in David City in Chiriqui, Panama is enjoying a healthy uptrend and timing is important when buying property.
