Purchasing land to construct a home is one of the most crucial – if not crucial – yet the most impactful financial decision of someone’s life. The mortgage financing and associated cost of purchasing land have a potential impact on the homeowner’s bank balance and savings.
In Pakistan having a house in the federal capital, Islamabad, is no less than a privilege. Islamabad is the heart of many posh areas, so it is very tricky to buy land for a home here. In the capital of Pakistan, responsible home buying land is not easy because many amazing residential real estate projects are running on the premises of Islamabad, but the decision is entirely dependent upon the future owner’s budget and area preference.
Are you also looking for a prime location to make a home…?
Dear, as a future homeowner, you need to examine the critical financial factors that are going to affect your long terms or short-term finances. To help you, here are the 5 financial considerations for responsible home buying in Islamabad.
Affordability is crucial if you are looking for land in the federal capital. If it is the single largest purchase of your life, then the well-located land at a good price point within your budget makes sense.
While looking for land, always ask yourself ‘can I afford the land that I am considering’? If yes then great…! While making this analysis, consider all the expenses like utilities, taxes, insurances, commuting costs, the cost that you have to pay to the real estate dealer, etc.
2. SUFFICIENT DOWNPAYMENT
If you have a handsome amount to make a lumsum payment while buying land for house making then well and good. In case you are looking for land on an installment basis then make sure you have enough liquid capital in savings to put down on your land for a home. Your dream of making the home and buying land at a premium location will quickly be dashed if you do not have an adequate amount of money for a down payment.
3.OWNER’S REGULAR CASH FLOW
The second thing to analyze while making your financial analysis is your monthly cash flow. Run financial projections and ensure that you have enough cash flow to cover the expenses after buying land. The proper cash flow analysis will help you to balance the expenditures efficiently within your pocket.
Some people do not like to live their whole lives in one place, and they like moving frequently. If you are one of such people, consider the resale value of land that you are going to buy. Always invest in the land that owes a good resale market value in the future, so that you can get some return on investment.
In Islamabad, mostly the reselling price of the land is high, but try to invest in that area which is going to give maximum returns.
In case you have a plan to purchse land in the initial phase of home building, and decided to build a home later by getting a loan, then probably you are unaware of the fact that it is difficult to get a loan on raw and vacant land. As after becoming the landowner, the main financial breakdown arises due to taxes so, consider this aspect in mind before leaving your money tied up in investment.
Also, the land in Islamabad comes under the Capital Developmeny Authority (CDA), so to avail land ownership in the federal capital, you have to pay some tax or surcharges after purchasing land.
Before you think about home buying land in Islamabad, ensure that your finances are in order. Also, make sure that you have analyzed all the financial aspects thoroughly and wisely before the process even begins.
