Case Study 1
Sonia Joshi, 32, Software Developer
When Sonia was looking for a permanent home in Pune, the one central confusion was whether she should buy a home, or just move into a rented house. She based on her research found out that that since the rentals in the location of her choice, Hinjawadi, were very high in prime properties. Being a single woman living with her parents, security, safety of her parents, health care options around were a few of her major concerns. The moment of realisation for her, as Sonia quotes was, “I realised that since the rents are already too high, why not add some more amount to it and instead convert it to EMIs? I mean, there will be a permanent property in my name, and yes, for some time, I would save a little less, but the pride of owning a new home, all on my own, is so much better than just renting a house and keep moving every 2-3 years.”
Case Study 2
Mithun Sharma, 28, HR executive
Mithun, hails from Lucknow, moved to Pune 5 years back for work. He says, “Initially the prospect of changing houses, seeing new places, new properties, meeting new people was very pleasing, but trust me it gets tiresome”. It is observed that youngsters like Mithun prefer rented accommodations, but the trend is changing fast. With a high disposable income most professionals these days would also like to enjoy the independence and security that one’s own home would offer. He elaborates. “No landlord would entertain you for longer durations, plus the rent also keeps increasing every year. And what about the time when you start thinking of marriage, raising a family, getting your parents to live with you? It is definitely buying a home in a good project that is the most beneficial. I am currently in the process of applying for a home loan. I am thinking of some good real estate projects, there are many in consideration but Eon Homes in Phase 3 tops the list as of now. Closer to work, top notch security, greenery all around, I think this may have been the best decision that I have taken.” he signs off.
