8 mistakes to avoid when buying a home

Author: Sachin Gupta | Find me on Twitter

Home buying is a long term commitment and therefore one should not rush through the things. Going through a well laid down process will eliminate following common mistakes.

Mistake 1



Buying a home in a builder project means there are additional costs to it. External/Internal development charges, Preferential location charges, club membership, fire fighting charges, one time lease rent, Maintenance charges, car parking are some of the charges that are billed on top of base selling price. These charges put together can range from 18 to 20 % of total cost of home. Once possession is given, you will have to pay stamp duty and registrations charges too.


Mistake 2



Borrowing means you will be paying EMIs. And more you borrow, higher the EMI or you pay EMI for longer time period. Do your calculations and make sure you pay as much as possible in down payment and borrow the rest. There is no point in borrowing 80% of property cost when you can arrange for more funds for down payment.


Mistake 3



Plan at least 3 years before you plan to buy a house. That way, you will have enough surplus funds to make the down payment and borrow the rest from bank.


Mistake 4



Home affordability is a key consideration and one should never lose sight of it. Home affordability means what is the value of home that you can afford given your current income levels. You can easily calculate Home affordability here.


Mistake 5



We all dream of living in a house that is big and has all the world class amenities, but can you afford it?


Mistake 6



Do not ever overlook due-diligence part. Ask for approvals, land title certificates, license number form the developer.


Mistake 7



If buying a home for investment purposes, make sure you do not lend in a soup and have enough cover to pay for home installments. When realty market was going strong, investors/speculators entered the market in the hope that they will make windfall profits, but things have become tough. Most of these investors/speculators are willing to offload their purchases at relatively very low rate of returns.


Mistake 8



Make sure your finances are in order and you have pre-approved home loan before you start your search for home. This way, you will not overshoot your budget.


Did you make any of the above mistakes???

  2. Buying a home is always an investment. But, buy a home or apartment which we can afford. Many builders provide different types of options for homes. Otherwise, you can choose apartments for rent. In Gujarat, Shree Balaji Group provides the best 1 bedroom apartments.
