Considering how for most people this transaction will be the purchase of the most expensive asset as well as the maximum debt even owned, it is not a matter you can choose to deal with in a light manner. Make sure you maintain your thrill and excitement without compromising on the responsibilities. Here are some signs to pay attention to when making this choice-

  • The Reliability of Your Source of Income

This is an extremely important factor if you are planning on taking a loan for your housing property. Nothing is worse than having a loan on your head and no job stability. Even if you have a steady source of income, never forget to factor in some buffer amount for unexpected expenses. Do not get too close to your margins or else you might find yourself in grave trouble.

* The Down Payment

The amount you need for the down payment of the house is also a factor to consider. You will need to show that you can afford the house at every step of the way. Make sure you have the sum ready for making the down payment as problems in this first instalment can reflect badly on your past.  

  • Previous Debts

This is important for first time home owners as well as recurring ones. If your debt is reflected in a non efficient manner it may seem as if you are way in above your head. Try to pay off all debts before applying for a loan or at least organise it in a manner that you show control.

* Crunching the Numbers

Although the calculations will be provided to you, the ultimate decision lies in your hands. Make sure you have a clear idea and estimate of any and every cost that can be expected to rise. From fees to legal expenses, you may have to face the need of a number of unseen expenses.

  • The Co-signers

For a lender to lend you money for a home purchase, he may demand for a co-signer along with you as well. In most cases this is not a problem. However, it is much better to delay the purchase decision than have a co-signer with you. You may be forced to involve this person in every decision you make if you don’t plan it well.

Whether you purchase a 3 BHK residential apartments in Lucknow or a smaller home, be confident about the decision you make. Pay attention to the little voices and your intuition as well, sometimes they give the best advice.
