Nowday buying home will be big dream for middle class people. On every day the price value of House and rent income keep on increase as 10 -12% annually. Let us see which will be best option whether I should go for renting or buying the house . Consider an example before taking any decision

Buying House 

House Property value: 42 Lakhs

Mortage Loan :32  Lakhs

20% amount paid on the current House property value: 10  Lakhs (approx.)

EMI for Housing Loan at current Interest rate : @9.5% -> Rs 29,828

The interest rate may go up to down depend upon on the economic condition of that country. If you consider other parameter like Property tax, Maintenance cost etc. The property value of house will increase from 10 to 20% of current market value of house. In such case you gain more profit compare to the stocks.



















Renting House 

Rental Amount Per month –Rs 20,000

First Year RentAmount -Rs 20,000 *12 =2, 40,000 (for first year)
