When it comes to buying a home, all our energy is spent looking for one,
and then completing all formalities until you finally get the keys. What we overlook is the planning that we need to
do when buying a home, to ensure we can settle in the new home as soon as possible, and it doesn't take months,
or in some cases, years. So, what needs to be taken into considering after the financial part is
taken care of and you’ve signed on the dotted line for your new home in Bangalore, to be precise,
your new residential apartment in Kanakapura Road. As this locality is becoming a popular choice in the Garden City.
Well, make sure that before you purchase an apartment in Bangalore, your entire savings/finances haven't been exhausted already, because if it is, you’ll have to wait for a long time till you put the pieces of your dreams together to make your house, your home. Once you are sure about the finances and have moved into your new home, spend time and money to make every aspect of your home worthwhile.
Here’s how you can start:
Furniture: First things first. What you need immediately after you move in is a couch to sit, a cot to sleep and a wardrobe
to stack your clothes. Without these, it doesn't feel like home. So, be sure that you have all your furniture in place, even if it means that you’ll have to buy one every month, two months or quarterly. Just plan it well.
Appliances: You need your basic appliances, without which you won’t be able to move in. Like your mixer, grinder and pressure cooker. As for the others, pick the ones that you need first and based on the season. For example, if you’re moving in winter, maybe you can opt to purchase the juicer a little later. Simply put, have all that you need now, and plan for all that you will need in the coming months.
Interiors: It’s more of a luxury than a necessity. Yet, it is among the first things you need to get done. Because you have the cake and we all know that the icing can make a difference. Once you’re settled and have purchased the basics, take a break. And then consider getting the interiors done. This could be done in phases or all at once, which depends on your planning and finances.
Others: Need more curtains? Need curtains to match every room? Want to pick some artefacts? Considering buying a few bean bags? Well, once you’ve achieved the above and still have the time, energy and money to do more for your home, go for it. You can do this is at your own pace simply because the bigger investment and planning is almost done. Now, it’s all about personalising your space.
The above are just a few of the many factors to consider after you move into your home. But the planning needs to be done much before you move in. If you’re considering buying a home in Bangalore, it’s time you start planning!
