Why a vacant land/empty plot : From an Investment Perspective, a vacant land/plot is always a safe bet, not just in the long term, but also in the short term. If you are dreaming about moving into an Independent House in some locality (be it a colony or a private layout) 5 years down the lane, then a piece of land in that locality is exactly what you need. Further, if you buy it now, you get it a far cheaper price that you would 5 years later. Even if, you don’t have any plans to construct a house of your own on your land, it is still a good investment, as Real Estate Prices continue going upwards and on a resale, you can expect handsome gains.
Now that it is clear, one should own a piece of land, how do we go about financing it ?? What if you need to purchase a land for constructing your sweet home ?? Not just independent home, one can also purchase it for investment purposes.
