Buying home real estate in Geneva or France

I would like to purchase real estate but am well aware that there are risks. Can someone update me or direct me to sites, people, opportunities to learn more about what I need to know. Good, honest brokers in Geneva and/or France welcomed.


 


Thanks

Take the mortgage in the currency of the asset, not that of your salary.

That's not necessarily the best. If the mortgage in in the currency of your salary, then you can loose money (as I have) but you can continue repaying the mortgage as you have planned. If your mortgage is in another currency (EUR) which increases, you can risk your monthly payments increasing beyond your means.


With hindsight, I would probably suggest 50/50.

Get the mortgage in the currrency you earn (to avoid foreign exchange loss).


Try to negotiate a flat interest rate throughout the life of the mortgage (it might extend it for a couple of years, depending on interest rate movements; that extension can be capped and negotiated as well).


The stronger your position when acquiring the property (amount of owned capital vs mortgage request) the better you can negotiate.


Get an insurance in case of unexpected unemployment as well in case something goes wrong.

A stupid question: what kind of insurance type / company ensures in case of unexpected unemployment? 


furthermore, is there any differences between buying a new flat and old flat? e.g. price? maintenance charge? monthly charge? extra mortgage for a new one??


is there a benchmark for an old flat concerning the 'total amount of the future maintenance of the building'?


what are the important notes to decide if this is a flat worthy buying other than the location, size, and price?


to whom can I ask all these questions?
