There are a lot of reasons why you might want to buy bungalows in Kolkata but you might be unsure whether now is a good time. Sometimes the property market might not be doing well, the economy might be struggling, or you might have personal reasons to have some doubts about the wisdom of buying.

Here is a closer look at why now is a good time to buy that bungalow or any other property you might be considering such as an apartment.

Renting is giving away your money to someone else

Most of us go through the same or similar cycles. We grow up, live with family, go to school, then get work, move out, rent and when we have the money we look at whether it is time to buy perhaps in a bungalow township, Kolkata.

But some people choose to keep renting for various reasons, not being able to save the down payment to buy, not having a large enough income, not seeing the type of property they would want to buy and more.

But the problem with renting is you are basically giving your hard-earned money to your landlord. At least with a mortgage, you know that eventually, you are going to be the owner of the property you live in. It is an important investment.

Prices will recover over the long run

Even in a situation where you are worried about not making money on the investment you just have to be patient. The economy will recover, prices will rise over time and you will find you can sell for a profit if you wait it out. When you consider the price of bungalows now compared to what they were 20 years ago it is quite staggering.

Affording a new home means getting a mortgage

Buying a house is obviously going to cost you money. Most people do not have the resources to buy bungalows in Kolkata outright and need to get a mortgage after saving the down payment.

This means you can live in the property and make it your home as you pay off the loan with each mortgage payment taking you one step closer to owning it outright. Having your own equity is a great step and a good investment for your future.


Investing in the best property for you, as long as it is one you can afford is something you should do when you have a good credit history and you have a stable income.

Whether that home is in a bungalow township Kolkata or somewhere else, if you plan on being in the home for more than 5 years then buying is a great investment.

It is good as in investment into your future and it means even if things are hard, or they dip in the short term, in the long term, it will even out and it works out to be the best thing to do.
