Hi,

I am in need of some advice regarding the subject title.

In India there is a huge craze for self owned houses for many people... as if it is their life's mission. My sweet mom also has this strange ambition.. but I can't quite see the advantages of building a new house..

Building a house with land takes atleast 30 lakhs(in outskirts). With Housing loan assistance it is 17,000 per month for 20 years.
whereas renting a medium size house in a reasonably civilised area takes 10,000 per month and can stay for 25 years(on that 30 lakhs amount)

Anyway even if I go ahead and build that 30L house on loan in the outskirts, I can't live there since its far away from office and have to rent the newly built house
to someone and get another house for rent in place nearby office.

Assuming that I build the house in 1 year and rented it out to someone at 6,000.. I continue to live in my rented house @ 10K,
effectively I can save 10K - 6K = 4K rupees...

However I still have that 20 years loan on my head to which i gotta pay 17K per month.. subtracting the 4K i save from 17K loan amount, I get
13K of loan per month.

Also there are some other variables in the mix for a newly build house, like if the newly built house is haunted or flooded area or rowdy area or anyother crazy reason..
If I don't like the area I could immediately change the house (for rented home)
For a owned house I can't do that...


So what do u think? I build the house or I just stay in rented house??

Thanks for your patience and thoughts.

the own/rent for houses is a quite personal issue and rather murky
moreover the housing market and related laws/tax issues are different for different countries
duration of the rent contracts,
tenant protections
legal annual raise of the rent ( state defined inflaction index ?)
loan rate changes ( in some countries it might be an advantage to have a variable rate based on the prime index )
loan interest deduction ( for first house ?)
taxes/deductions and similar

given all the side issues are taken care of,
where,
what,
how,
WORK COMMUTING,
relocation issues ( present and future )...)
legal,
financial

my personal approach ( very quick and dirty ) is ..
start consider buying if You have the money for the initial payment and the monthly loan reimbursement amount is equal or less to the rent

buy/build and live somewhere else should be judged with different assumptions in mind
( some kind of investment ???)

but the above is just my personal point of view icon_biggrin.gif

Vasanth - falling under the same 'South Indian' category, even I am facing the same dilemma ! But my decision for now is to rent a house at my place of convenience and not buy one until I can afford one at a place where I feel home ! (Buying a home in the outskirts of Chennai never excites me for it never gives the feel of living in the old and original Chennai - The Madras)

@Enrico thanks for your POV , The loan installments are higher than that of the rent by atleast two times. Which has got me thinking.. Lost some twenty to thirty forehead hairs in the process. (:


@Rockish - I agree with u macha ...building a house is one BIG task with many unknowns.. I will scrap the idea for now..

Thank you,

Vasanthz,

You are missing a key point here. The amount you pay today as EMI when you buy a new house now (17000) might be a burden now. But after 5 years, when the rent rates are increased, that would be not-so-big-burden. After 10 years, you may feel like you are paying a very little EMI.

I know a friend who is now paying 10k as EMI (for the house he bought in 2004,), where as the nearby house of same size is costing 15k for Rent.

Agreed

My plan in this matter is, buy a land in outskirts and buy an appartment/flat inside the city and i know both these things can't be done at the same time(That's why, i call this a plan)

15-20 years in future, what you called 'OUTSKIRTS' wont be outskirts. Simple example, tambaram was outskirt 15-20 years back, but not right now.
