Being a first-time homeowner does not need to be a difficult experience. Granted, there are a million things to keep in mind, when choosing an abode for you and your loved ones, however, that does not mean you think the task is insurmountable. It is simple. You and your family need a place that you can call your own.
While House-hunting, one of the first factors that need to be accounted for is the size. You want just enough space for you and your family to dwell comfortably. While it is true that huge houses look beautiful, it makes no sense to invest in a property that will be much more than the living space you and your family needs. It just translates into more space to maintain.
On the other hand, coming up short on space requirements is an absolute nightmare. Imagine having a person extra, and a room short? If you have 2 children, how long before each will want their own individual bedroom?
An extra bedroom has several advantages. If you are on the lookout for a 2BHK flat and instead start browsing 3BHK options, you will realize the value of the extra bedroom in contrast to the amount it might cost in addition to the prevalent property cost.
The bigger the house, the more it will fetch in the long run. This is true especially in urban areas, where property prices are sky-high. Invest today, and if you do move out, reap the benefits in the future. Alternatively, if you do plan to settle down in the same house, an extra bedroom may be of use if you add to your brood. It can be used as a guest bedroom, in case you have visitors, who will be grateful you don’t make them sleep on a sofa.
If you buy a house and want to expand your living space in the future, you may need to obtain local municipal clearances, or other permits to make changes to your dwelling. If you already have an extra bedroom, that is the moment for it to play its part.
Last but not the least, an extra bedroom can be used as a personal work-space. If you want a place of your own to retreat into, convert this bedroom into a den.
Today, urban areas are seeing an influx of young professionals looking to call a place their own. Cities like Bengaluru, a hub of various MNC’s as well as start-ups, are seeing people investing in property both for dwelling and investment purposes. Those working in tech companies in Koramangala, for example, will do well to invest in residential apartments in Kanakapura road. The latter is a well-planned locality, with large, airy spaces and beautiful flats. Gaze out of the balcony in your 3BHK flat in Kanakapura road, and behold the greenery all around.
So whether you are looking to buy your first home or changing your beloved adobe for a swanky new apartment, don’t scrimp when it comes to the extra bedroom. Invest correctly once, and never look back again.
