Therefore for a buyer, there is some critical real estate question that they need to ask themselves even before going to the market for their purchase.

How much can you afford to invest in real estate?
This is the first question that you need to have before even going out in the market. Some people would think of mortgages and loans when they think of investing in beach real estate.
