How does Location affect your Property Price and Safety?

Location can be a big decisive factor when it comes to a property in terms of its current worth and future appreciation. Property value in prime locations in the towns and cities will be unreachable to the normal people. Only the Tatas and Birlas and other big shots will be able to buy a property in prime locations. Such places will be easily accessible and will have a lot of other conveniences like hospitals, educational institutions, bus and train stations, sometimes even the airport nearby.

When Nostalgia Strikes your Retirement Decisions!

Each one of us dreams to come back and get settled in a place connected to our childhood or youth days. The nostalgia connected to that place – whether it is your native place or a small city or town where you have lived for some time or always wanted to live.

For many NRKs, the ultimate aim is to build a dream home where they can spend their retired life peacefully. Though many of us may already have a plan for our retirement, my aim is to help refine it and to help those who have just started their expatriate life. Being Keralites, we tend to gel easily with the locations and situations our jobs take us to. We all want to make some money, build a home, make some more money so…

Say no to Investing in Real Estate and Start Building Your Home!

Real estate investments are argued upon against share markets and other investments widely these days. The experts may be right when it comes to purchasing a plot or an apartment as an investment which is expected to give a specific ROI. But do you really have to think that hard while investing in your home? Many people get it all wrong when it comes to this question. Investment and Shelter are 2 different aspects altogether.
