5 Preferences A Buyer Should Never Compromise On
There are so many things to take care of while home shopping. The money part aside, there are many other things, big and small, overlooking which might cost you dear in future. Here we look at certain small but significant factors where making a compromise may not be a good idea.
Cooked to perfection
Home buyers these days are aware of the importance of a kitchen in homes. In our busy schedules, we do not have much time to spend in the kitchen, even if we intend to. This is why we need a perfect kitchen to cut short the labour and time spent. However, as far as a kitchen is concerned, the definition of perfection is subjective. For some, a marble kitchen top with a fancy chimney is perfection; for others, perfection makes for a modular setup comprising time-savvy electronic equipment. But, no matter what your definition is of perfection, make sure no compromises are made on the amenities you would need here.
Go with the flow
We are certain you plan to install air-conditioners across the house to keep it cool during summers. Fair enough. But do pay attention to the fact that there are no substitutes for all things natural. This is why it is pertinent that your house has proper access to the sun and air. In case the unit does not provide you with proper ventilation, it might not be worth living in. Apart from everything else, the absence of ventilation can be detrimental to your physical and mental health, too, studies prove.
Something smells right
The same is true of bathrooms, too. In the good-old days, we could do with the bare minimum facilities in a bathroom. This is not the same anymore. Any flaws in the bathroom can cause you a major trouble in future. In case you find any defects, ask your seller to address your concern immediately. If you feel the layout of the bathroom is not done according to the rules of Vastu, etc, and might have an adverse impact on your health, there is no reason for you to compromise.
The safety net
You have paid a premium to book a house in a housing society to be able to enjoy security services. While most developers boast offering 24x7 security services in their projects, the reality might be different. This is why it is a must to make sure the developer is serious about the security of the residents and has put in place measures to ensure the same. A manned entry point is no guarantee a housing society is safe. In case of working couple who leave their children behind as they go for work, security must be the prime criterion for selecting a house.
The open spaces
Not many of us can afford homes with big lawns and open terraces. But, all human beings need access to fresh air and a green view to keep their mental and physical health. This is the reason why developers focus on developing open spaces for in their projects. Make sure the open space has space for all of you. A small park in society that houses, say, 500 residents is nothing but crowing. Make sure you do not end up in a housing society like that.
