There is an old proverb that says that buying a home and performing a wedding are the two biggest achievements in life. They are considered so because both require extreme amounts of patience, hard work and perseverance. While the society may give you umpteen reasons to buy a home, one should be very clear of the objective with which a home is brought as it is not just a home but has a lot of economic investment principles behind it. So here are the top 4 reasons why you should buy a house and make the next big investment in life.

1. YOU ARE READY AND YOU KNOW IT

Buying a house is a big step both financially and emotionally. It requires you to be financially stable for the next couple of years and meet huge EMIs and loan dues. This also means sacrificing on those Sunday evening dinners with friends sometimes. Hence, you should decide to invest in a house only when you are mentally alright to make this investment. Don’t buy a house because of family or peer pressure – that’s would be a bad decision and hence would be difficult to maintain the cost of upkeep.

2. BUILDING EQUITY

Paying money in rent is like throwing salt into the sea. You are not going to get it back at any point in life. However, paying a home loan EMI is not like that. It is a fact that the housing market is volatile, the value of the house tends to go up in a longer span of 30 years. Also – buying a home is like a post retirement investment. You can decide to upscale or downscale whenever you want because you already have a huge piece of immovable property with you.

3. YOU HAVE A SECURE JOB AND A STABLE LIFESTYLE

Paying a home loan EMI requires a fixed amount of money coming in every month. This fixed amount of money should take care of your EMI and must also be sufficient for your needs. A small miscalculation over here may lead to making more debts and thus managing becomes difficult. So, you should decide to buy a house either when your income is sufficient to manage the EMI and the house, or your house consists of multiple earners who all can contribute to the home loan EMI.

4. YOU NEED A STABLER LIFE STYLE

Building a house or buying one means that you are going to be in the locality for some more years to come. This means you are giving your children and your family a locality in which they will be living for a longer period, thereby building relationships with communities around them. Owning your accommodation gives you a neighborhood, schools, community and locality that you can call as your own. It also gives your life a great deal of stability so that you can explore other vagaries of life and enjoy them. The feeling of stability is what everyone aims for, right?
