I am looking to acquire GV via the property purchase so I need to pay EUR500k, that’s clear.
However, if I find a nice property advertized just a notch below that amount, what would be my options?
I figured so far that I potentially can:
- Simply make an offer and purchase above the asking price (Pros: single transaction; Cons: money wasted, any issues with GV application?)
- Ask for some extras to be thrown in (or not to be removed) by the seller, e.g. white goods, some garden equipment, ornaments, or even furniture (?) topping it up to the required amount (Pros: single transaction and money not wasted, Cons: issues with GV?)
- Go and find a second property (Pros: no issues with GV by definition as the number of transactions not limited by SEF; Cons: pretty much everything else i.e. find a second cheap property for a EUR10-15k (near impossible?), deal with another transaction, delay the start of GV etc.)
Any thoughts on the above would be much appreciated!
