Are the invitations from your friends to invite you in their summer homes drying up? Also, are you done with weekend getaways at crowded homestays with strangers that bump your pocket but aren’t as appealing as you thought in the first place?
If you’re absolutely agreeing with the above-mentioned aspects, then it’s about time you start thinking about buying your own ‘summer home’ and what better than something like luxurious villas in north Bangalore in the outskirts of a city like Bangalore.
Check out some of the tips that will come in handy for buying your dream summer house.
First and foremost, you need to know what exactly you’re looking for, finding your foundation like where you want it, how exactly you wanted it to be, how much you are willing to spend, how will you be using it, etc. Answer such basic questions first so you are exactly clear about what you should be looking for.
Not making a hurried decision
A lot of people make mistakes mainly coz they think that a summer home is a sort of timeshare space. You go on a vacation, you’re in some extraordinary place, you find something you love about the place and you buy a timeshare right? How often does that really go well? The same would be the case with your summer villa in ongoing villa projects in Bangalore as well. Probably you’d gather your friends and spend a few weekends with them.
Experts recommend that perhaps renting the summer home first and then buying it is a good idea. It is just like test-driving a car right before you buy you know to make sure that you really like what that community is all about, what is the infrastructure when the summer is over and also use that after a labour day to get some relaxation.
Always try to understand what value the property may have for you in an offseason;
- Does the area it is located in shuts down?
- Is there the possibility of renting it out to someone else while you’re not using it?
You also need to consider that:
- Do you want to be in the woods?
- Do you want it to be near a lake?
MEASURE THE MAINTENANCE
Every buyer and property comes with different-different sets of maintenance, one requires it should have a convenient supply of water and electricity, should be constructed using materials that don’t require a lot of painting touch-ups, etc.
Money is not the only factor to consider
Don’t just look at the purchase price while buying a summer home as there are a lot of other aspects as well that should be considered. Think about the locality and the maintenance charges as well. Make sure it has all the basic amenities such as parking space, a garden, a small pool, a backyard for those barbeque nights, etc. In case you have a family, see if there’s enough space for your kids as well. Right from their playing spaces to the family rooms where all of you can spend some quality time, everything should be considered.
