Home buyers should be clear about the purpose of investing in the 2nd home
The real estate sector which experienced a wobbly start in January is now showing signs of revival. Sale has improved both in the primary as well in the secondary market: all these shows that it is the healthy time to own a second home. People associated with the sector suggest that it is the best time to buy a second home.
“This is an ideal time for buyers to invest in a second home as the market prices are low and will only increase in the coming time. A second home is ideal for investment purposes, as it generates rental income; it may also be set up as a holiday home for the buyer. Second homes are an excellent source of income for retirees as well," Vineet Relia, MD of SARE Homes, says
Experts believe that if a person is buying a second home, it is an asset which should be bought with prudence and purpose should be clear whether a person is buying to rent it out or make an additional investment with a long- term horizon in mind.
Well, many believe that the introduction of RERA has also brought in the positive impact on a sector and it is also responsible for changing landscapes of the sector.
“For those planning to buy a second home as an income-generating asset or for capital gains, the market is attractive when considered from a long-term perspective. For this, buyers should sort out their investment plans and put their finances in order. In the contemporary era, an affordable house is the best option a homebuyer can think of buying currently," Ssumit Berry, MD of BDI Group, said.
"Overall, the time is favourable for buying a second home as realty has picked up pace after demonetization, RERA, and GST. There is a surge in demand for ready-to-move-in homes, which promise immediate rental yields. Even for those who are scouting for a second home for the extended family, it's a vantage position," Harinder Dhillon, VP (sales) of DLF, says.
To clear out the unsold stock developers are also giving discounts and freebies to which buyers are taking the advantages of it and buying a second home. This ultimately is increasing the overall sale.
With the improved real estate market coupled up with Government reforms are attracting home buyers to a buy second home.
