First, research the real estate market to get a feel for housing prices in your desired area. Study the ads on real estate websites, visit the websites of investors, which will allow you to get in direct contact with the seller or investor.

Check your financial possibilities and determine how much you can or want to spend on buying an apartment.

You can also consider hiring real estate agents who offer buy-to-let services (without a middleman), but be aware that this may involve a commission.

Once you’ve found a few potential apartments, make appointments for a tour and inspection.
