What are the benefits of buying a property at an early age? Why people opt for realty investment as compared to other forms of savings?
Priyanka Dubey, 29, a self independent woman residing in Jaipur is looking for top high return investment options.
From some time, she is comparing the benefits of different forms of savings instruments like National Savings Certificate, Public provident Fund, Kisan Vikas Patra and Recurring Deposit Schemes of several banks. She has also consulted a share & commodity trader about attractive investment plans and their Return on investment (ROI) in the market. Though she is attracted towards the metal & agricultural commodities and IPOs for outlaying money but the risks associated with these has left her in a dilemma. After a considerable thought towards the investment, she has decided to avail home loans and invest in property because of both high ROI & less risk involvement.
To invest in the real estate, first we know the market. Which areas are suitable for investment? When is the best time for realty investment? Who are the prominent builders and how much time do they take to complete the housing project? What is the average price per sq ft in the locality? What are the essential property and housing loan papers? Knowing your property market keeps you ahead and likely, you make a right decision.
The several benefits of investment in real estate sector are mentioned below –
1. Tax Savings – If you avail home loan on any property, you are entitled to receive a rebate in your Income tax. People usually apply for home loans at late 30s. If they invest at an early age or in 20s, they would get rebate and start savings from the early age.
2. High ROI – Compounding is the 8th wonders of the world
While making an investment, we should remember this mantra. As compared to Kishan Vikash Patra, National Savings Certificate, Public Provident Fund, Fixed Deposits, Life Insurance Policies, the ROI on real estate investment is more in most of the areas. The compounding in property prices fluctuate in a city or location owing to performance of economy and varied infrastructure policies but ultimately, you get some more.
3. Little investment risk – Investment in shares, commodities and currency comes with certain amount of risk. Unexpected market events, outside your control can result in your loss of capital. This is the reason why most of the people prefer to invest in property instead of opting out trading options.
4. Asset Creation – In societies, we can see property passing from generations to generations. When you purchase a property, you create an asset for yourself and save taxes on home loans. In the long run, the value of assets increases multiple times.
So, we have seen buying a house is a good investment at an early age. Though, there are some challenges like little income, less life experience and maintaining an optimum credit score for home loans but the magic of compounding will increase the worth of your property manifolds.
