The right time to buy a house

When it comes to buying real estate the best time is when markets are down. The second best time is when you think of real estate as a viable investment. This should be the right time to buy a house.

Price-points of real estate have remained constant since 2016. If you consider inflation rates, real estate prices are at discounted levels.

The Indian Government is doing its best to bring the economy on track. Real Estate is of serious focus and the government has promised all support to the sector.

Home is for settling down

From the Indian point of view, ‘Settling Down’ is very important. This relates to the Indian Social Sector. This is the stage when you complete academics to starting a business to yes, buying your own residential property.

House is a social security measure which is also a long-term investment. It’s a must have once you settle down in life.

House prices rise with economic growth

Inflation is currently on the lower side. Though high inflation is bad, inflation does boost growth in the economy. Real estate prices are low, but they won’t be so in the future.

Soon RBI would shift the focus from controlling inflation to supporting creation of new investments, businesses and of course, jobs.

Property prices would surely rise and so would rentals. This makes staying on rent in the future, a bad option. Real Estate has always been an appreciating asset. There is no reason why real estate prices should not go up in the future.
