Buy or Rent a Property during COVID Pandemic 2021

Buy or Rent a Property during COVID Pandemic 2021?

Today at All About Loan, we will discuss about the decision to BUY or RENT a property. This is one of the widely discussed question that comes when one always keep thinking about.

Since buying home usually is a long term decision in India, before buying a Property one should do his Math properly. A wrong decision could have long term repercussions. We at All About Loan have had clients whom we helped buy a under-construction property in 2016, they got possession for same in 2019 and during this Covid Pandemic time they decided to move to their Home town permanently. Now since the property is vacant, EMI is still being paid they have decided to Sell off the flat at a discounted price! Such decisions can really lead to long term losses!
In the above scenario, renting a property would have been a better decision for them!

Analysing the same via Numbers & Math
Property Cost- 2 BHK 50 Lakhs 50 Lakhs
Booking- Renting Year 2016 2016
Approx EMI paid till date (Considering ROI 8%, Tenure 20 years and Loan amount 45Lakhs) EMI 37,640*5 years 22.58Lakhs Rent Each month 20k 20k*5 years 12 lakhs

From the above numbers it is evident that Renting the property would have been a clever decision for one rather than Buying a property. If we take into consideration factors like PRE EMI during booking time to Possession, Rent being paid on alternative Property where one was staying, fluctuations in ROI the costs will be much more to One who bought the property vs One who rented it.

In Indian context, Renting is considered mostly a compromise by People. On other hand someone who is financially stable puts much more weightage on the decision to buy a house vs Rent it.
