We often come across couples and families slumped in debt, merely because they invested in a property that they could not afford.
If you want to buy a house that won’t bust your financial stability than you simply need to reassure your money management.
After settling on the budget, you can now move to the next step, i.e. look for locations that can offer you properties within your price range. With every price range there comes a lifestyle and its choices, but most importantly people look for a home that is at an adequate distance from their workplace, surrounded with good educational institutes, and has other social infrastructure like – malls, cinema hall, parks, etc.
Needs & Wants
You should be able to make a clear distinction between what are your necessities and how to classify your desires. While listing down your requirements, it is of utmost importance that you stay practical and realistic.
