I Have A Dream….A Home!

Home ownership is one of the priorities of the middle class. While it is still conceivable in some parts of the country, in other parts it has now become a distant fantasy. Considering differences of income, the affordability of owning a home varies hugely across the country.

For lakhs of middle-class families which stay in rented accommodation, owning a home remains their biggest dream. This class has limited income and once they book a house, a lion’s share of their savings goes into paying rent and EMI (Equated Monthly Instalment) of the house.

Let us see why is the dream of buying a home, a larger than life picture for the middle class:

  • First things first. It is not always about finances
  • It is about stability, pride and peace of mind
  • It is about improving the quality of your life
  • This is a family dream, not just an individual’s imagination

Many people say that it is not the right time to invest in real estate because the market is not stable and will stumble down further. But what if the fall in property prices is due to a rise in home loan interest rate, which means that in the long run, that lower priced house will cost you more since you would have paid additional costs in terms of EMI. Above all, what remains as a fact is that nobody can time the market. It runs on sentiments ALONE.

And if you, as someone belonging to the middle class, ask whether it is the right time to buy a home, the answer is yes, it is. It is your financial situation that matters, and not the expected housing prices. You just need a stable source of income and the ability to pay the monthly loan instalments and manage your expenses.

The whole concept of ‘The Middle Class Dream’ targets your heart rather than your mind. Also, let us analyse the differences between a home and a house:

A house is essentially a structural entity. It is a place to do activities like eating or sleeping, and put your possessions in. On the other hand, a home is where you live, where you feel cosy, safe and at ease.

While buying a house is a logical decision, buying a home is an emotional one. Thus, while buying an asset, both the logical as well as emotional factors should be kept in mind. However, in cases that require a compromise in any respect, logic should be given weightage; but at the same time, emotions should also be considered, especially in smaller matters. Then, you will have for yourself a ‘home’ and at your price.

General elections: The Tarmac For Realty Sector To Take Off

Owing to the sluggish economic stance, the Indian real estate sector has been experiencing anxiety over the last few quarters. Although the construction domain has fared well in comparison to other liquidity intensive sectors, the present day spectacle calls for robust revival in the arena of asset development in India. The respite to the current situation, lies in the post general election spell which has been a ray of hope for the partakers of realty sector.

To the sight of a common man, the reduced number of project launches and encumbering rates of interest on borrowings come across to be a dingy state of affairs. However, there is a flip side to it which has been fenced and waiting to unleash at the right time. The general elections and the subsequent clarity on the governing dynamics of Indian politics, new economic policies and fresh regulatory decrees hold the key for the future of growth and expansion in Indian economy.

The factors which beget hope for the Indian real estate sector after the general elections:

  • Probability of numerous project launches after the new central government comes to power
  • More projects, which await approvals,  to be sanctioned and hence increase the supply of residential units
  • The funding capabilities to improve in effect of the new interest rate management policies and recuperated FDI initiatives
  • Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs)  legislation to unfurl the potential of further investments by a wider segment of investors        
  • Property rates to appreciate and strengthen the investor sentiment in the realty market
  • The political uncertainty to fade away and subsequently inspire the home aspirers with brighter prospects of investment monetization
  • New infrastructure investments to accentuate the worth of assets around the metro cities and the proposed connectivity initiatives to boost the growth across the peripheries and satellite townships
  • The regulatory institution to be realized after general elections to streamline the operations along with effecting transparency into the realty ecosystem and further promote the Indian real estate in the global construction arena

The factors mentioned above are only few of the many triggers which are expected to bear tangible fruits for the realty sector in the second half of 2014 and the coming years. Once the stability is reinstated at the center, the domain of operations and the regulatory framework will certainly be domineering with clear goals and expansion plans. With the improved and eased approval mechanisms, and fresh commercial guidelines, the FDI and FII performance will improve and further advance the growth in the Indian real estate sector.
