    Though I am also new to the RE...but browsing thru different threads will give you very useful information which is actually helpful for people like us (who are new to RE)... Here are my thoughts :-

    1) From shortlisting the property
    That you have to undertake considering ur budget, locality prefrence, size of apartment, etc...
    Try and shortlist such type of property which has all approvals in place, construction started, banks disbursing home loans against such property apart from other criteria.
    Do check for builder's reputation...


    2) Fianlising the deal..
    when you are in process of finalising the deal...Just give the least token money and get the fotocopied docs(BBA/Allotment letter.reciepts, etc ) from the seller and go directly to builders office to confirm that yes the apartment is on that particular person's name and you may get to know the amount paid(as its showing on the reciepts)....Also check the layout plan if the charges charged on BBA is as per actual plan of builder or if there are soem recent changes in builders plan.
    Take a day or two's time for the same..

    Once confirmed then you can pay bigger amount. It would just reduce the risk.

    Senior members may add more points to this...

  • Once one has confirmed with builder than can one pay 10% amount to seller at time of signing agreement to sell. My worry is that say you pay 10% and sign agreement to sell and than if seller runs away. Given agreement to sell is only with seller and builder is not involved so there is a risk with seller. Have we seen any issues like seller running away with 10% amount not to be seen again and also any other reasons things can go wrong.
