From the plot cutting to the construction materials, everything must be checked to determine the quality of the home.

Important Factors To Remember While Buying A House

Some of the important factors to remember while buying a house.


The first thing to consider is your budget. Investors should determine how much they can afford to spend on a house, whether it is to buy a ready-to-move-in house or to construct a house. Professional real estate experts recommend that your monthly housing costs should not exceed 28% of your gross monthly income. To achieve this target, investors should choose an installment-based payment plan to ease their payment process.

Developers’ Credibility:

It is always better to search for the developers’ credibility who are building the house. After allocating the budget, if investors are not going to construct the house themselves, the most significant factor to determine is to search for a good developer. More than half of the problems start when investors select the wrong developer. Investors should choose only those developers who have already delivered several projects before and the quality of their projects has remained the same. Choosing reliable developers means that your money will not be wasted and better-quality construction material will be used for your house.


The location of the house is also a significant factor. Investors should consider factors such as proximity to their workplace, schools, hospitals, public transportation, and recreational activities.

Size and layout: 

Investors should consider the size and layout of the house. The number of bedrooms, bathrooms, and living spaces should be appropriate for the family’s needs. Also, investors should consider the layout to be suitable for their lifestyle.

Material of the house:

Make sure the construction material of the house is a high-quality material as it is durable and long-lasting. Otherwise, in a period, the finishing of the house will deteriorate. The electrical wiring is one significant factor here. The better quality of wiring used, the more electric load it can bear. The electric appliances which consume more load such as refrigerators, water pumps, and ACs will never trip if good quality cables are used in construction. Otherwise, short circuits will be common in the future.

Condition of the house: 

Inspect the house thoroughly to ensure it is in good condition. Investors should look for any signs of damage or wear and tear, such as leaks, cracks, or mold. If that house is being used for residence and has been constructed for a while now, it is better to judge the quality of the home. Here, an important thing to check is the DPC level. A damp proof course (DPC) is a barrier that is installed in the walls of a building to prevent moisture from rising from the ground and causing dampness. The DPC is typically made of a water-resistant material, such as plastic or bitumen, and installed at a certain height above ground level.

Dampness can be a significant problem in a house because it can lead to the growth of mold and mildew, which can cause health problems. Dampness can also damage the structure of a building over time, particularly if it is made of materials such as wood or plaster.

A DPC helps to prevent moisture from rising from the ground and entering the walls of the building. By doing so, it helps to keep the building dry and free from dampness. DPC can help to prevent the growth of mold and mildew and to protect the structure of the building from damage.

If a house does not have a DPC, or if the DPC is damaged or deteriorating, it can lead to problems with dampness. Signs of moisture and dampness may include mold growth, peeling wallpaper, damp patches on walls or ceilings, or a musty smell. If anyone suspects that the house has a problem with dampness, it is better to have it inspected by a professional to identify the cause and take steps to fix it. These steps may include repairing or installing a damp-proof course.


Investors should also take enough time to research the neighborhood. They must consider factors such as crime rate, noise levels, and the availability of essential services such as grocery stores and healthcare facilities.

Resale value: 

Investors should consider the resale value of the house. You never know when you might need to sell it in the future. Look for a house in a desirable location that is likely to appreciate over time. Also, keep in mind that these areas should not affect the house location as it will be creating a disturbing environment. Traffic noise leads to difficulty in selling a house. Investors should avoid houses near rushy areas, near graveyards as they are hard to sell in the future, and near agricultural areas. The water of crops can also damage the house building.
