There is indeed no doubt that purchasing property in a developing nation like India is a good idea but, there are indeed advantages and disadvantages to everything in life, and the same can be said for this as well. There is also no confusion or even a counter-argument about the fact that real estate can bear a significant premium over the amount of money that you have invested, and that would be that real estate would indeed give you a whole lot more than what you would have initially invested. You initial investment has a potential to double, even triple when it comes to real estate. Here is an example, a house that you would buy for 1 crore could end up selling for twice or thrice that amount because of how property values increase.
Since real estate, if so profitable, you will have no issues by increasing your wealth. If you are someone who believes in investing your money and saving up what you make out of it, you will certainly have a great time doing so because real estate is one of the best places to invest money into. You should also keep in mind that not every single property you purchase is a goldmine. It would indeed depend on the area as well. It is indeed pretty easy to understand because real estate prices their properties relating to location, age of the building, build, features, amenities, and many more things that would matter when the place is being let to rent of is being sold.
This would indeed clear some doubts, an apartment in the middle of a metropolitan city could end up costing as much as a huge house or even a villa in the suburbs or somewhere outside the city. The location plays a huge role when it comes to pricing, way more than all the other features. The same principal is applicable everywhere. I personally feel that houses are much better investment opportunities because when you purchase a house, you will be purchasing the land along with the house as well. Another thing that you could consider doing is that, you could just purchase a piece of land and start the construction of an apartment complex yourself. Make sure that you get the permit to build multiple floors. You could build how many ever floors your budget lets you build, and when it is done, if you are in need of money, you could sell one of those apartments for the price of what you paid for the land, or even more and make sure that you rent out the rest of the apartments. This would indeed be a rental goldmine.
