Key Connectivity Features To Look For When Buying Your Dream Home

A housing project may offer all the finest amenities in the complex that would lure you as a prospective buyer. However, if this project is not well-connected, you may want to look for another option. Connectivity plays a critical role when making a home buying decision, because commuting is an everyday task a home buyer does. Commuting from a far-flung locality can be very taxing, in terms of both money and efforts it would require.

Thus, MakaanIQ helps you create a connectivity checklist before finalising on a residential property for buying or investing. The checklist would include:

Metro rail service


When it comes to daily commute, Metro has become a lifeline of some major cities in India, including Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Gurgaon, and Chennai, among others. While in Delhi, Bengaluru, Chennai, Jaipur and Kolkata, expansion is underway, in cities like Lucknow and Pune, these services are in the process of implementation. Being indispensable in today's fast-paced lifestyle, this public transportation medium is known for its unparalleled efficiency, quality service and quickness. So, when planning to buy an apartment in India ensure that it has a good Metro connectivity.

Link to important routes



Connectivity to major destinations by road is one of the key criteria on which the success of any housing project depends. Though Metro rail services are undoubtedly way ahead, but connectivity via road using public transport including buses, auto rickshaws and taxis is still equally important. Hence, it is essential to scan the locality for sound road connectivity including popular highways and expressways. For instance, the projects near Noida - Greater Noida Expressway, Faridabad-Noida-Gurgaon (FNG) Corridor, Yamuna Expressway, NH-8 and NH-24 etc., could be a preferred choice for home buyers looking for real estate in NCR (national capital region).

Access to the airport & rail network


Though buying a property in vicinity of an airport or rail network could not be a wise idea, but, picking a property a few kilometres away could be favourable. Hence, make sure the locality of your new home is at the right distance from the city airport or railway station. You could choose between the two depending on which of these is more frequented by you.

Proximity to social infrastructure


Scrutinise your new residential locality for primary social infrastructure encompassing schools, colleges, restaurants, shopping malls, hospitals, bank branches and so on. Ask your real estate agent for any commercial centre or social infrastructural facilities within the housing colony as well. The closer these are to your residence, the better.
