A breathtaking view or a villa equipped with every comfort aren’t enough to bring you happiness. Before buying a property there are important aspects to be taken into account. Let’s give a look to some of them.
A Villa Lago Maggiore is the secret wish for those who seek serenity, breathtaking landscapes at any time of the day and the immensity of the Lake just right in front of their house.
We have already listed the several values of owning a house on Lago Maggiore or the coolest places to aim at. This time, we want to list the main mistakes made by those who long for a Villa with Lago Maggiore view and the tips to avoid an ill-chosen purchase instead.
“This Villa with Lago Maggiore view is so beautiful! It even has a pool, let’s buy it”
If we bought first and second homes led only by our first impressions, we would seem foolish or Maharaja from India in the eyes of others. It’s not about buying a pair of jeans, which normally end up being forgotten and left in the back of a drawer, if they are too tight or have little appeal. The purchase of a house must be considered carefully, taking into account all pros and cons, position, neighbourhood, equipment, technology and a lot more.
Let’s make an example: the Villa with Lago Maggiore view you have just visited have literally caught you for its spaces and decor, not to mention the position that overlooks the whole valley and offers an incomparable view of the Lake. The only problem is that there isn’t a garden where your two dogs and children can run around. Are you sure you don’t want to consider other possibilities?
HOW TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR GARDEN
The garden is huge, with wonderful hedges and evergreen plants. There is an English garden too, elegant and impressive, where you already imagine a big gazebo and deck chairs to sunbathe. But before you rush into the property purchase, ask yourself if you have time and budget to deal with such details. Taking care of a large garden, as well as the maintenance of an ultra technological pool, require a great deal of attention if you want to ensure both functioning and aesthetic in time.
If you know you tend to be careless or sloppy to certain details, well maybe you had better consider other options… or recruit a gardener, who is also a handyman.
IS IT BETTER TRAFFIC OR ISOLATION?
Is it better a Villa with Lago Maggiore view located on a hill or a house in the centre of Angera? This will be up to you, to your choices and needs. Before throwing yourself into the purchase, take some time and think carefully: if chaos and chatter annoy you, then aim to a Villa far away from the centre, that during spring and summer is actually stormed by tourists and lake lovers.
THE IMPORTANCE OF SPACE
“We are only two now, but tomorrow who knows. It’s better to buy a very big villa”
Dreaming big it’s okay, but life gives us plenty of choices and directions. Your sons, once grown up, could decide to move to another city. Do you really want to buy a huge villa, which, in the best-case, would be inhabited only once a year?
The same goes for those who underestimate the importance of space and settle for a few rooms, that over time will become too small to host a big family. It’s better to take a few more days to think over than throwing yourself today in the purchase of your Lago Maggiore rustic home and regretting tomorrow.
Let’s be honest: the perfect house, fully satisfying all your little and big needs doesn’t exist. But relying on a real estate partner as Engel & Völkers can help you make the right choice.
