Pros of Homebuying:

  • Asset Building –

    Rent money can be put toward a home loan EMI, allowing you to establish a long-term asset.

  • Tax Benefits –

    Section 24 allows you to save tax up to Rs 2 lakh in interest paid on a self-occupied home, and Section 80C allows you to save up to Rs 1.5 lakh on principal.

  • Low Rate of Interest & High Rate of Appreciation –

    Home loan rates are at about 6-7 percent. After a decline in recent years, property values are expected to rise.

  • No Shifting/Moving –

    With your own home, you don’t have to worry about moving all the time.

  • No Interference of Landlord –

    You won’t have to deal with the landlord’s whims when it comes to maintaining the property, nor will you have to fight over who pays for repairs, painting, and other maintenance tasks with your own home.

  • A Sense of Security –

    Having your own home brings calmness and mental stability, as well as the freedom to decorate it however you please.

Cons of Renting:

  • Rising Rent –

    Aside from the annual increase of 8-10%, the landlord can raise the rent at any time or evict you.

  • No Tax Benefits –

    Renting does not provide any tax benefits.

  • Limitations By Landlord –

    You can’t alter or make structural improvements to the house without the landlord’s permission.

  • Post Retirement Challenges –

    You will have to continue paying rent even after retirement with no or minimal source of income

    You must follow society’s rules, which may include pet restrictions and car restrictions among other objections.
