Usually, apartments that were mortgaged in a bank or credit organization are put up for auction. If the lender has not repaid the loan, then they are put up for an electronic auction. Such objects are attracted by the price - it is below the market price. However, keep in mind that this is the initial cost, and it increases during the auction. First of all, you need to carefully study the documents for the apartment (for example, check if there are any unformed redevelopments) and the conditions for participating in the auction. Often, former owners and members of their families are registered in such apartments. Sometimes they refuse to be discharged (especially difficult when it comes to minors). In this case, the new owner will have to settle the case through the courts.Poor construction
Such risks when buying an apartment were significant ten years ago. With the development of the sector and the growth of competition, it is coming to naught. Developers are trying to meet the demands of the buyer, who has become much more choosy. This contributes to higher quality standards. Today, more and more residential complexes in Georgia are being built according to international standards.Risks with the contract and documents

), or by contacting the House of Justice directly. When buying an apartment in a trusted real estate agency, you can not waste time on this - large real estate companies care about their image, therefore, only with trusted developers and objects.Unfinished housing
This risk exists when the property is purchased at the excavation stage. In this case, the experience of the developer, his reputation in the market, previous projects, customer reviews can serve as a guarantee.
