Buying a house is a big decision.
You need to be prepared emotionally and financially.

Finding the perfect house is quite a daunting process. It is excruciating, and it becomes tougher if you know a little about the flats for sale. Well, do not worry because that’s what Own A Roof is all about (shameless promotion).

Anyhow, a lot of things change when you buy your own house. Many a time, you get the cold feet, and you feel like stepping back, but things get settled at their place after some time. So, before heading out to the market and going to the open houses, you need to ask yourselves some questions, and when you have the answers, you are ready to go.


Q1: Am I financially capable of buying a house?
You have been saving money for a long time but for the purchase of a house, you need to double check the finances. It is not advisable to wipe out the bank account to buy a house. Get the calculator and add the cost of living, moving, painting, and furnishing. You always need the money for the maintenance purposes once you buy the house.

Q2: Is the house going to be a luxury or the necessity?
You may be dreaming for a mansion, but it is the time to set the expectations right. For a family of two, 2 BHK flat in Jaipur is the perfect to live in. You can convert the second room to a guest room or the baby room. If you do not plan ahead, you may end up buying more than you bargained for. Not only it would shake the finances, but the extra space would also remind you that you made a rookie mistake.

Q3: Are the neighbours friendly?
You do not want the neighbour’s dog pooping on your doorstep every morning. It is necessary that you talk to the neighbours before buying the house. If the neighbourhood is not good and friendly, the dream can quickly become a nightmare.

Q4: How quickly can I move to the new house?
Good houses sell fast. If you want to buy a house, you need to plan how quick you can move in. If you are excited to move in, and you can pay for it in the due time too, these are the sure signs that you are making the right decision.

Q5: Can I see a future in this house?

You are not going to be all energetic and financially capable all your life. Before buying the house, you have to see if you can stay in the house for a long-term. For most of the people, buying a house is once in a lifetime process, as such, a hasty decision can make you compromise for the rest of the life. Look out for the parks, schools, colleges, malls, doctors, etc. near the flats for sale. All the things that matter should be accessible easily.

Well, there is really no such thing as the ‘perfect house’, it is you who define the four walls and a roof as the ‘Home sweet home’.
Wish you a euphoric House hunting!
