Buying a property could be the one primary reason most people work and save for in the greater part of their lifetime. It provides the people with a sense of safety and stability. Most people are looking to buy properties these days instead of renting or leasing because the real-estate market is a constantly growing market, rebounding its way back from the hit it took due to the pandemic and also renting and leasing are for a short term and the return on investment isn’t as substantial in comparison to buying as the value of the property increases gradually.
Challenges faced by first time buyers
People consider renting over buying a property over a few reasons. Firstly, it gives them a feeling of having lower liabilities. Paying a rent of 10,000 to 12,000 for a property that costs around 50-60 Lakh seems to be much affordable than paying an EMI of around 25,000-30,000 per month for the same property. Basically, it all boils down to affordability of the project.
Buying a home was seen as a status symbol by those born in the duration of 1950s and 1980s. Millennials, on the other hand, consider saving that amount to fund their overseas trip, buying a new car or a flashy phone.
Before renting a property, a number of formalities must be taken into consideration such as depositing a security amount and signing an agreement with various clauses including increase of rent by a certain percentage after every year or depending on the owner. The concept of leasing and renting is only for limited period of time and considering how the pandemic impacted the tenants who moved away for the lockdown but still had to keep paying rent for all the months they were away and the rents have increased all over, whether it maybe commercial or residential. The commercial real-estate market was one of the worst struck markets as many projects that had to be paused due to the sudden pandemic resulted in cancellations of pre-existing deals all leading to heavy losses for the builders, hence the market is ready for new buyers and many builders have introduced interesting offers to indicate so.
