Everyone dreams of moving out on their own and out of their parents’ house but sometimes, it takes longer than expected. If you think you are finally financially secure enough to move out on your own, you should start house hunting immediately but it is important that you take it slow because this is a very big decision in your life and it is not something that you should rush in to.
Figure out your budget
The first thing you will need to do is to find out exactly how much you can afford to spend on the new place. You will need to put down a lump sum on the deposit and you will also have to pay the monthly rent on the place. Therefore, you will need to find a place that has a deposit that is in line with the savings that you have and a rent that is in line with the money that you have to put down from your wages at the end of the month after you have paid off all of your bills. It is important that you do not over estimate how much you can afford to pay. If you have some extra savings or if you think you will be eligible for a loan from the bank, you can even consider looking for an apartment for sale in Siem Reap that you can buy straight off the market. If you have taken out a loan, you can pay the money that you would usually pay as rent as the installment on the loan. Once you have your financial budget in mind, you can start looking for Siem Reap properties online.
You will find hundreds of options and it is important that you call each of the house owners with questions about your requirements so that you can short list certain places. This way, you will not have to waste your time going from place to place.You will also need to consider the distance of the place from your place of work. If you have to spend a lot of money on transportation and you have to spend a long time travelling to work every day, it may not be worth it. You have to get a place based on the rent and your travel cost for the month. As such, if you find a place for a slightly higher rent that is walking distance from your work place, it would still be a better option than getting a very cheap place that is two hours travel time from your office.
