Should You Rent Or Buy A Home?
Tuesday, 12 February 2019

One of the most common dilemmas faced by prospective homebuyers is whether they should rent a home or buy one. There are, of course, advantages and disadvantages to both these choices. However, asking yourself a few key questions can help you make the right decision.

    1.Are you financially ready to own a home?

Investing in a home can be a stable and lucrative form of financial investment. However, it’s important to do it at the right time. If you have a steady source of income and good home loan options to back you up, then go for it. Otherwise, it might be a good idea to rent for a while.

    2.How will you put the home to use?

If you’re thinking of buying a home, it’s a good idea to think about the purpose of the purchase. Are you going to rent it out or will you live in it? If your answer is the latter, you may want to plan to live in the same location for at least the next couple of years, after which you can look to rent out the home. If you intend to rent it out, make sure to assess the market before choosing the location.

    3.Are you paying off any other loans?

If you are currently in debt and have many other loans to pay off, then it might be a good idea to hold on before you buy a home. However, if you’re financially ready to sign up for a home loan, then a home purchase is a great way to avail of tax benefits while also enjoying the perks of being a homeowner.

    4.Do you have an investment plan?

Don’t have an investment plan yet? It’s always a good time to get started. Instead of channeling your saving towards rentals that don’t pay you back in any way, you might want to consider putting that money towards your home loan EMIs. Doing so will allow you to reap the many benefits of being a homeowner, while ensuring that your money is invested in the right place.
