It is inevitable that you will have much less energy while fasting. Get ahead of the game by shortlisting houses through virtual tours, than visiting each and every one, which the real estate agent proposes. This way, you can save time, and conserve your energy for prayers.
Take summer essentials
While searching before Iftar, make sure that you are dressed according to the temperature outside and have kept all summer essentials. These include: a hat, wet towel or tissue to wipe off sweat and a hand-held fan. Houses will not have air-conditioning switched on, so you need to prepare yourself in advance.
Plan your visits
During Ramadan, agents change their office hours according to Iftar timings. Plan your visit in the early morning or after Iftar in the evenings. It is better if you make two visits: one during the day and one at night. This way you can closely examine the house’s exterior and interior details during day time and keep a check on noisy neighbors during the night.
