A new flat is, well, new. It has never been used before and can be arranged according to your needs, with the following factors in mind:
The next step when purchasing a flat is to choose a suitable location. Here, the most important thing is your lifestyle and needs. Do you prefer a smaller flat in a prestigious neighborhood close to the city center, or a larger one far from the madding crowd?
You need to remember that it is the estate's location that primarily affects the price of residential property.
Once you have selected a location, you need to pick a specific development project.What do you need to pay attention to? The most important thing is functionality and architectural features. Do check the following:
The immediate neighborhood of the selected project is essential for your comfort. Depending on your needs, you should learn whether there public amenities important for you in the vicinity, such as schools, kindergartens, medical facilities and retail and service outlets. It is important to check whether the network of public transport routes and roads will allow you to commute comfortably and return home safely. It also pays to learn how are surroundings will change in the next few years.
You will find more information about your future neighbors at our website in the section describing your chosen residential estate.
Once you have chosen a specific project, check who is in charge! You should especially pay attention to the development company's history on the Polish market, its previous projects, its experience, and opinions from customers who have used its services. Remember that a development company that is a member of the Polish Association of Development Companies and applies the Code of Good Practice in relations with its customers is more likely to be reliable.
Dom Development has been active on the market since 1996. As a founding member of the Polish Association of Development Companies, we coauthored the PADC Code of Good Practices.
At the Apartment Sales Office dedicated to a particular project you will be shown details of your future flat. Our advisor will show you the estate map, flat layout and a preliminary visualization. If the flat that interests you has already been constructed, the advisor can offer a tour. At the Apartment Sales Office you will also learn all about property financing: the exact price, payment schedule and any possibilities of turnkey finishing.
To choose the best method of financing your property, you can pay a visit directly to your selected developer. Dom Development has an independent credit advice team that, unlike most intermediaries on the market, is looking solely after your interests when contacting financial institutions. The team showcases the full mortgage offering of Polish banks, as well as tailored property financing schemes offered exclusively at Dom Development.
When checking whether a development company is credible and reliable, you may find opinions of those who have already purchased a flat there highly valuable. It is a good idea to visit the completed stages of a specific estate or other projects built by the company and talk to the residents. This way, you will be able to obtain impartial information about the quality of completed projects.
Having taken all the above steps towards owning your own flat – selecting and checking the development company, choosing a flat and the financing method – you are in the position to sign a reservation statement. In the statement, the parties undertake to conclude a development (final) contract in the future. According to the Development Company Act in effect, the statement should contain all essential terms and conditions to be placed in the development (final) contract.
Once you have signed the development (final) contract and the project is underway, you can start thinking about finishing your flat. If you have decided to purchase your flat from Dom Development, you can take advantage of a special offer from our interior decoration team – turnkey flats that you can move into immediately upon receiving your keys. Our designers will help you select the finishing materials and give you tips on interesting architectural solutions.
The flat finishing service is increasingly valued by Polish customers and development companies are eager to offer it. In developed countries, flats sold as “shell units” are now rare.
Dom Development has always offered its customers turnkey solutions, with many years of experience in this respect as a result.
The moment when you are invited to pick up your keys and enter your flat for the first time is always a memorable occasion. But you should not forget that this is also the time to review the development company's work. It is best to make an appointment during daylight hours to assess the premises in detail. Remember to have the flat design to hand and to check whether it matches the actual outcome and meets the terms and conditions of the contract. It pays to use the services of a qualified inspector who can help you accept the flat.
The day of moving into the flat of your dreams has come. You may want to be prepared in advance and sort your belongings so as to avoid taking something that is not necessary. Prior to moving you should also wrap up all transport-related issues – in that way, the first day in your new flat will remain in your memory as an enjoyable experience.
