Getting a dream home may seem like a happy experience everyone would want to have. But many who embark on the journey towards getting their dream home built or buying a ready made home, have no idea of the horrors that lie ahead. Yes, the journey towards your dream home could actually become a nightmare for you!
This is especially so if you are looking for a luxury villa in Bangalore. The demand for luxury villas in Bangalore has risen every year and there are a multitude of builders and architects promising to bring your dream villa to reality.
However, not all promises are kept and you should at all costs avoid taking a risk when it comes to your dream home. This is a home that you are going to invest all your hard earned money in and you would certainly not like any flaw, however small, in your home.
• Keep your options open
Even if you come across a good deal right at the beginning of your search, don’t jump at it. Making a hasty decision might cost you a lot when it comes to properties and homes. Always keep your options open, and keep reviewing different locations and homes before you decide on one. Unless you look at a lot of different options, you’ll not know the best that is available for grabs according to your budget and preferences. For example, there are a number of luxury villas in Koramangala that might excite you, but might not be in your budget.
• Stick to the budget
Buying a home is exciting and you might get tempted to buy every sort of accessory you see in the market for your home. Set a bar to your spending and plan your home decor carefully. If you are getting an interior designer to do the honours, stick to their design plan and consult them before getting home accessories.
• Check and Re-check
If you have set your sights on a ready-to-move-in unit, make sure you do a thorough inspection of the entire place. Go room to room in your inspection and if you notice any areas that require repairs, bring it to the owners or realtors notice immediately. Take special notice of any wood panelling and cupboards that might have been damaged by termites etc. Check for broken or cracked tiles and check the roof for any discolouration indicative of rain water seepage!
These are just a few points for you to keep in mind when you set out on the long and laborious journey of realising your dream home! More is less, when it comes to how much effort you could invest. But, the returns you get will be absolutely worth it!
