Have you ever been confused about whether to construct your own home or buy a ready-to-shift home? All of us have faced these questions and found them very confusing. Before we get to the topic of this blog, let’s look at the top 3 reasons people decide to build or buy a home:
Top 3 reasons people buy their own home:
1. More expensive to buy land and construct your own home in a large city: In the more developed cities across India, the land is fast becoming expensive to afford for the middle class. It is even more expensive to buy a plot of land, construct the home, and also manage all the amenities for a standalone home such as power backup, security, etc. Hence Apartments find favor in metro and Tier I cities across India.
2. Difficult to manage construction while working in a job or running a business: In the modern lifestyle, it is difficult to find the time to manage an ongoing construction project. Even if you have a contractor doing the construction, the homeowner has to visit the site regularly to ensure quality and speed of work.
3. It’s harder to manage and maintain a standalone home: If you construct your own home, it will require much more effort to manage and maintain the home as it gets older as you have to manage everything, including all the support services such as electricity, plumbing, etc. In an apartment, the common services are taken care of by the society office, and you only have to manage things inside your apartment.
Top 3 reasons people construct their own home:
1. The ownership of your home is complete and independent: In India, it is considered more secure and prestigious to own both, the land as well as the house constructed on it. When the house grows old, one can still reconstruct it or sell the land at value. In apartment
complexes, the ownership of the land is shared by all residents.
2. The quality of construction is in your control: When constructing your own house, you get to choose every material, every fitting, every finish that goes into making it. Such construction also is also durable and lasts generations.
3. The home can be built over a period of time to accommodate your financial and personal requirements: Most people have a limited budget when constructing a house. But you can continue the construction in parts over the years adding more floors, more rooms, and amenities, as your family’s needs grow. If you have decided to construct your own house then you may want to understand a little more about a Home Construction Loan.
