Buying real estate is serious business, regardless of the economic conditions. Real estate investment is just one road you might take for wealth creation. How does investing in real estate compare to other roads to riches. Any real estate purchase during a recession is accompanied by risks but buyers can take precautionary steps in order to minimize that risk and protect their interests.

Real Estate Priorities

Why are you purchasing real estate? Will it be a home or will it be an investment? Unless you have too much money to spare, it is not smart to invest in real estate during a recession because prices are continuously dropping. If you do, you may have to hold on longer to your investment because you wouldn't know when the economy will pick up so you can turn around and sell. Financial experts advise that you buy a new home during a recession only if you plan to stay there for a long time.

Being Flexible

Although you may have a list of the "must have", try to be flexible with the specifics. Unless you build one, you cannot have the perfect house. Satisfy the "must have" criteria to their basic level and you won't have a hard time finding a good deal. Perhaps you can make changes to the property later on to make it more to your liking. The best way is to compare all the deals you've found and choose the property that fits closely to your ideal home.

Conservative

Buy a home that you can actually afford. Buy a home if your finances are in order and if you have no other pressing debts that you're having difficulty paying back. Buy a home only if you're financially secure, meaning you have a steady source of income so you can pay the mortgage comfortably and that you're not facing the risk of losing your job the next day. This is not the time to stretch your finances. Remember, credit is tight during recession but lenders are more than willing to grant you a loan if you have a high credit score, of which capacity to pay is a big factor.

Short Term Sale

Do not immediately make an offer on a property priced incredibly low for the neighbourhood. Ask your agent to confirm first if it is a short sale. Short sales usually require some time, months even, before a deal can be closed. The lender may not even accept your offer. If you really like the property despite it being a short sale, be sure that your agent has enough experience in handling short sale transactions.

Know what you want and how much you're willing to pay for it. While you should always look for the lowest price, do not choose a property based on price alone. Look at what you're getting for the price. It is said that the best time to buy real estate is during recession.
