Why should you pay attention to maintenance aspect when buying home in India?

Posted last March 24, 2017, 6:42 am in Real Estate report article

Home buying is not a onetime investment. Homeowners need to incur regular cost on maintenance and repair. Home repair might seem a small task of just fixing the wear and tear, but when we talk about it in financial terms, it at times cost a lot. When buying a home, no developer or real estate websites in India will talk about this additional cost. 

 

But as a homebuyer, it is your duty to pay attention to this aspect and make a final purchase only after doing all the calculations. Even if you are eyeing top real estate projects in India, you should be careful about this cost.  

 

Important areas of home maintenance 

To call a house a home, it needs to have all the facilities for a comfortable life. You cannot call a brick and mortar structure home without an arrangement for water, electricity, and air. Further, you also need to pay attention to minor issues like leaky taps or missing tiles, as these small problems can create big damage to your property.

 

Why fix minor problems immediately?

This is not just about the damage these minor issues can cause your property but also the monetary loss. If you fix the problem immediately, you can save yourself from big losses. Mr. Ramesh told me how a simple open pipe caused them change of complete pipeline in their home because kids threw some stones and other garbage in it.

 

Space in windows can increase your electricity bill in summers as air conditioner will have to work more to keep the room cool. There are many such small but harmful maintenance issues which you can also check on the blog section of Indian real estate website. These sites help home buyers by posting informative content.

 

Detailed inspection of home

If you are planning to buy an already possessed home, it is important to go for detailed inspection. Just looking at the pictures of the properties websites is not enough. By visiting the property, you can carefully check the problems and make a list of repair activities.

 

If you want to sell your home in future, timely maintenance of small problems will help you fetch more value for the property. If you register property on real estate website, you can also mention this as a feature.
