The 9 Keys to a Successful Real Estate Purchase – A Blueprint for Design

Designers often say that a home’s interior should reflect the people who live there. But before we decide which artwork we’re hanging where and what kind of draperies we want, there are countless other elements to be arranged, down to a home’s bones. This is especially true with new construction, as these apartments can be modified before a buyer even gets the keys. Even if an apartment is purchased as an investment to be rented out, a knowledgeable designer can adapt the apartment to meet renters’ needs, creating a space that will outlast many years of wear and tear.

A qualified professional can coordinate with the contractor, architect, and the many other tradesmen involved to review all the plans and updates according to the structure of the apartment and the layout of the water and electricity supplies—and to make sure all changes are up to code. After plans are drafted, they have to be submitted according to the contractor’s deadlines. And someone has to be present to make orders, arrange discounts, receive deliveries, verify warranties, and supervise installation.

If all of this is making your head spin, engage the services of a trusted designer who works with a group like Getter. An added benefit is that The Getter Group follows up with the designer, making sure all plans are submitted according to schedule – and regulation. These aspects are just as important as – if not more than – finding a designer with a great aesthetic. After all, you want your home to tell the story of who you are – and not the story of the crazy disasters that happened in the process of designing it!

Though the myriad details of home buying are overwhelming, don’t let them deter you from living your dream in Eretz Yisrael. With a patient, guiding hand at your side, and some siyatta diShmaya, all those puzzling pieces can become a beautiful picture: you and your family, at your new home in the Eretz Hakodesh.
