Below listed are some of the pros of investing in real estate during the rainy season:
1. Evaluate the quality of construction
Monsoon season is the best period to check the overall quality of construction of the property. Check for signs of leakage or dampness from ceilings or in washrooms. Heavy rains help reveal major flaws in construction and planning which comprises of drainage issues, dampness on walls and plumbing quality, and become almost impossible for the developer to hide these flaws during monsoon.
2. Understand the location
Monsoon season lets you understand the location and its neighborhood way better than any other time of the year. It gives you insights on water logging situation prevalent in the location, accessibility to the area and towards other locations during rain, and also the upkeep of the premises. An understanding of these factors will help you make an informed decision considering the other options available within the same price bracket.
3. Availability of infrastructure and amenities
Potential homebuyers should visit the site more than once before taking a final call to understand the availability of infrastructural facilities and amenities around the property. Check for the availability of transport from the property to the nearest bus depot or railway station, schools or hospitals or even accessibility to the nearest grocery store.
4. Negotiate price
Minor flaws and glitches in the property can be used as chances for home seekers to bargain further and get a fairly good deal. And only a small amount from this profit is required to get those flaws fixed.
