Confused between mutual funds v/s shares v/s real estate? Get to know how financing in real estate is more constructive than shares or mutual funds. At present time of rising inflation and cumulative costs, it has become very tough to preserve a good régime with a poor source of revenue. It has made persons keen to search for other alternative sources of revenues. While investment looks like a money-spinning choice for extra earnings but again searching too many available alternatives on the niche market is genuinely a hard-hitting job to pick the best among them. Mutual funds, real estate, gold, shares, etc. are some of the key investment choices that one looks into, but each has its own pros and cons.
Real estate can give you benefits like rental income, security against inflation and capital appreciation. If you have a plan to take a home loan, you will get full tax benefits against the interest as well as the instalments. When you invest in the realty market, it is time-saving and money generating which will give you various profits.
• Before finalizing the deal, requires a lot of homework about mortgages, insurance, negotiation, titles, finding the right investment property, etc.
• Time-consuming if you plan to rent or sell properties
• Capital intensive in nature
• Real estate has low liquidity
• It requires maintenance
A share market, equity market, mutual funds are the gathering of buyers and sellers. It is a loose network of financial transactions and not a distinct entity of stocks or shares. Mutual funds are the best way for the average investor to purchase investments which would be too difficult to manage on their own. But the truth is that the stock markets/mutual funds are highly volatile and risky to invest. Let’s have a look at the pros and con of other assets:
If you wish to begin your investment with a very smaller sum and have high liquidity requirements, with steady investment, then mutual funds would be an excellent choice for you. If you have a significant amount in hand for the down-payment and have very long-term investment goals, then the real estate can give you good returns along with a steady rental income. On the whole, financing in real-estate is less risky than equity shares or mutual funds. To invest in real estate is always an excellent choice, a solid and physical asset will always give immense satisfaction and big mental comfort over other financial assets like a mutual fund or stock. Obviously, mutual funds and stocks are also lucrative, but the risk factor is bigger. On the other hand, real estate is safer and the price of property always goes up after a few years. So returns are almost guaranteed.

The popularity of multi-generational houses and apartments started to grow during the COVID outbreak. This has influenced certain lifestyles and also triggered new trends. Generations see the benefits of co-living apartments that appeal to a multi-generational society, from seniors to middle-aged couples, from new parents to young people. The pandemic has taught everyone to stick together, support and encourage each other during an emotional crisis. Let's see why multigenerational living has become the most advantageous and interesting thing right now:1. An Affordable Option: When various generations live together, they can afford considerably more comfortable and luxurious residences than they could if they lived separately. This financial flexibility can simplify home maintenance and other utilities as well as household expenses. It also makes it easier for people to save more money for essential things like retirement, vacations, and educational funds.2. Safe & Secure Environment: With more people, there is usually someone at home to watch the house and make sure it is not empty. And, with adult children and grandchildren nearby, elderly parents or grandparents can seek help much faster than if they lived alone if they fall or have a medical problem.3. Emotional Backup: Living together can develop a priceless connection among children, parents, and grandparents. This is certainly relevant when they have a residence that is well-suited to individual requirements, personalities, and interests. Giving moral support and being present during critical circumstances are irreplaceable moments that only multi-generational living can offer.4. Improved Work Efficiency: With the older generation, youth management can be as easy as a cake. Parents may use some help, whether it's with mentorship or schoolwork. Chores, cooking, shopping, and other requirements can be divided and completed much more quickly. Younger people can tolerate strenuous physical labour, while older adults can handle less physically demanding tasks.5. Instil Feelings of Partnership: Your children will learn that all members of your family contribute and help each other. They become aware of and are influenced by the perspectives and love of the older and younger generations who live with them. This allows them to appreciate the wisdom that comes from strong family ties and expand their horizons in constructive ways.6. Easy on the Guardian: It would be stressful for the family guardian to care for the sick parent or grandfather if they weren't living with them and staying away. It's hard to constantly go back and forth to their parents' homes to care for them and back again as they juggle their home and family. It therefore becomes even more important to develop a multi-generational home.7. No More Sense of Loneliness: Isolation is a huge issue in our culture today for all generations. On the other hand, older people feel needed, involved, loved and valued when their extended families live together. The children receive much more help, guidance, and time with their families. Everyone will feel less alone. This may be a win-win situation for everyone if healthy family relations are in place. 8. Happier Work Settings at Home: With the latest remote working opportunities from companies, people are able to enjoy more flexibility and work from the relaxed and joyful atmosphere of their apartment. This structure led to fewer burdens and stress-free lives, which also steered them to greater productivity in their work.Varma Homes - Creating Multi-generational Constructs Since its inception, Varma Homes has established itself as one of the most renowned builders in Kerala.

It’s common now for most residential properties, luxury or otherwise to come equipped with a host of fully loaded high tech amenities that make personal living experiences more convenient and super comfy whilst simultaneously weaving in work and business expediency. Features such as business bays, fitness centres or concierge desks are now considered as given conveniences that are a must for the exacting demands of residents. In fact it’s not unusual for residential properties to resemble more on the lines of luxury resorts rather than simple lacklustre residences. The sky is the limit and there really is no dearth of shortage of bespoke residences that fulfil every desire. So what then should you expect if you’re a home buyer looking for a property that will comply with your needs for today and appreciate suitably or phenomenally in the future as well? Here, we’ll individually take a look at some of the niche amenities that are being offered to the conscientious customers of today whilst presenting an opportunity for realty investors to identify early opportunities in this segment. Dedicated zones for entertainment and multimedia are no longer things of the past, they are the standing reality of today. As the world moves at lighting speeds with respect to technology, gaming and virtual reality zones are fast becoming a must have feature in residential complexes. To that end, many developers are imbibing these dedicated zones in their blueprint plans. So while one can expect private Jacuzzis and spas conveniently located a few floors below their residences, it’s not going to be surprising to find private entertainment and multimedia zones located right next to them. Usually most residential configurations already come pre-designed with multimedia zones within the house itself with special provisions for enabling it with ‘smart’ features. However, lately consumer needs have started gravitating towards incorporating the multimedia zone as a shared community space rather than a private feature solely accessible to the home’s inhabitants. Many reasons can be attributed to this shift, mainly the fact that many large sized simulators are impractical within the house besides it’s more convenient to allocate the multimedia or entertainment zone outside the house and free up the space within for something else. Perhaps a private pool or a work station, as the individual requirements may go. Those residential properties already having these types of zones allocate enough space so as to accommodate dedicated gaming zones, snug bowling alleys, virtual reality golf courses, cricket pitches and table tennis or lawn tennis simulators among other outdoor sports. What’s more, there will be high end gaming consoles and the latest play stations so that kids and adults alike can partake in their daily doses of some gaming action. These sorts of entertainment zones are not intended purely as leisurely, recreational activities rather an opportunity at family bonding and professional networking intermeshed at one great, fun place, within the residential complex. Moreover as these zones are located within the complex itself, residents are saved from traffic jams and traveling woes - something anyone and everyone appreciates! Did we mention about the mini theatres or screening rooms with super plush and comfortable seating options? Those too are very much an integral part of the entertainment zone. So residents can pretty much enjoy a session at the spa, work out at the high tech health club and saunter over to the entertainment zones and end the evening either playing some virtual tennis or catch their favourite movie, whatever catches their fancy first. In the western countries, residential projects have fast caught on with these futuristic concepts. And it is thought that this will be a rage in the coming years everywhere. In fact, there are quite a few national developers who’ve even begun planning these niche features in their pipeline projects. However, there is a considerable outlay for the developer and consequently the customer too. Hence it’s best advised for any new buyer to consider these aspects beforehand.

The most important factor to consider when investing in real estate is the return on investment. A property isn't a good investment if it doesn't guarantee a good return. Purchasing a property provides numerous benefits, including emotional fulfilment, assurance of future residence, and long-term financial benefits. In fact, it’s a symbol of financial stability for the majority of Keralites. With improved infrastructure and a higher standard of living, the state has seen a significant increase in real estate construction over the last decade. However, purchasing a home is a significant financial investment that necessitates careful planning and consideration of other factors. The location, construction costs, real estate value of the home, and space all play a role in determining a house's value. In the long run, a spacious apartment with good amenities will be a good investment. As a result, picking the right apartment to invest in is critical. In this blog, we'll look at the viability and return on investment of various aspects of residential real estate to help you make an informed decision. Location & Connectivity Obviously, the location covers more than just owning a house; it also includes the infrastructure in & around the area. If you pick the right location for your home, the value of your investment is sure to gradually rise. A good apartment project must be well-connected to the city and have a good neighborhood with amenities such as schools, hospitals, supermarkets, workplaces, medical facilities, grocery stores, public transportation, and so on. Great connectivity will be the most important factor in property appreciation, especially if the apartment is being rented or sold. So choosing the right location is critical for those who buy an apartment to maximize the return on their investment. Value-Added Facilities & Amenities The Kerala apartment’s modern amenities and facilities aid in getting the best return on investment when it comes time to sell. Today's developers provide a wide range of conveniences for homebuyers to fit their lifestyle, right from facilities and amenities like a clubhouse, swimming pool, CCTV, power back-up, children's play area, etc. These are just a few of the common features that bring value to apartment living. The ROI is determined by how well these amenities are maintained over time. Even so, due to their lower prices, even projects without such amenities can find buyers. However, when shortlisting properties for purchase, make sure that the final choice provides a decent lifestyle rather than just an investment asset. Quality of Homes Due to the abundance of demand in the new corridors of cities experiencing a massive increase, purchasers have a variety of options, as market conditions favour end-users. A home, like a car, is expected to perform a few critical functions, such as shelter, safety, convenience, a luxurious lifestyle, and so on. Buyers must consider these factors, and those that provide these benefits are in higher demand for obvious reasons. Without a doubt, branded builders provide these conveniences and attributes of living as a standard offering due to their market reputation, and such homes are in higher demand with better prospects. When buying a home, keep in mind that a comfortable home with plenty of interior space and luxury amenities in a desirable location will provide better long-term returns on investment. For property investors, homes in good locations, built by reputable developers with a good load of amenities and facilities, will always produce greater investment returns as well as potential rental income. If you are someone who would like a home with excellent amenities, a good neighborhood, connectivity along with excellent ROI, then Varma Homes has everything that you need.
