Buy or Rent, What should you do?

The choice between buying a home and renting one is among the biggest financial decisions that many people in bigger cities need to make. But the costs of buying a home scares many people off when they compare the EMI with their current salary. It may not be always true as with the tax benefits your effective in hand salary increases and your balance salary after EMI instead of rent does not reduce much. Also the decision to buy becomes easier if you choose to buy from CMRS Group, which offers CMRS Royal Orchid, luxury smart, green homes starting from 33 lacs and give the possession to you in little more than a year.

Buying Cost
  1. Initial costs are the costs you incur when you go to the closing for the home you are purchasing. This includes the down payment and other fees.
  2. Recurring costs are expenses you will have to pay monthly or yearly in owning your home. These include EMI payments, maintenance and renovation costs, property taxes and homeowner’s insurance. Property taxes, the interest part of the loan payment are tax deductible. The resulting tax savings is accounted for in each item’s totals.
  3. Opportunity costs are tracked for the initial purchase costs and for the recurring costs. The former will give you an idea of how much you could have made if you had invested the down payment instead of buying your home.
Renting Cost
  1. Initial costs include the rent security deposit and, if applicable, the broker’s fee.
  2. Recurring costs include the monthly rent and the maintenance cost.
  3. Opportunity costs are calculated each year for both your initial costs and your recurring costs.

What if you stop paying 25k rent and buy a 35 lac home from CMRS?
Lets analyse a common scenario where one family is paying a rent of 25k per month, if they continue to live on rental home, they will spend more than a crore! These will also be the costs on top of rent, such as the fee you pay to a broker and the opportunity cost on your security deposit. Now lets see what happens If they decides to buy a luxurious home with CMRS Group for 35 lacs. lets say they decide to make a down payment of 7 lacs. 3.5 lac out of 7 lac can come from parallel funding from bank to pay for agreement.

Occupation Certificate (OC), the Hot Item which is rarely SERVED by Builders

Do you know the BDA had sanctioned the building plan and issued CC and OC for Mantri Tranquil project, but BESCOM disconnected the electricity finding the violations?

The reason, the BDA ignored the fact that the project was within BBMP limits and that the two blocks of the Mantri Tranquil were built on the storm water drain! The fact remains that the property buyers don't know the importance and meaning of occupation certificate in its true sense. This information asymmetry allows a builder to take customers for a ride.

It can be assumed and granted that the small budget homes will be made with little deviations and occupation certificate for the same should not be expected. Such homes have to wait for akarma sakarma to pay the penalty and regularise the construction to get the occupation certificate.

But how can you forgive the builders, who charge upwards of 75 lacs and do not provide valid and appropriate occupancy certificate?

Without OC, the building is technically unfit for occ…
