The older people in the house are fragile and if you do not have a elderly friendly home, then they may need more of your help than normal. Here I am listing out some of the minor renovations and care, which you can do to make a seniors friendly home in your apartment or villas in Chennai.

1. Lights:

# Use an adequate amount of light to prevent the accidents: The elderly people are more prone to lose their eye sight, so, more lights will make them to see better and hence, to prevent any mishaps.

# Avoid direct bright light: The direct lights may irritate the eye of the aged person. So, better use LED lights or any cover the lights with a plastic to diffuse the light.

# Place a lower switch in their room: If the senior person in your house is using wheel chair then, make a lower switch for easy access.

# Install light inside the cabinet

# Keep a bedside lamp for the night for immediate use by them when needed.

2. Grab bar Handles for seniors:

# Install Handles all around the house for support

# Install grab bars in bathroom walkthrough to prevent slipping

# Install handles on both the side of the toilet seat for easy sitting and standing

3. Install western commode:

If you an Indian style toilet, change it to western style commode. As the elderly people may feel difficult to sit down on the ground.

4. Shower seat:

If the seniors in your house are facing difficulty to stand for long while taking a bath, you can install a shower seat for them to avoid straining their leg.

5. Remove obstacles:

Remove all the obstacle, projection or bump or hump protrusions from the path for a free movement. As, any kind of wound would be dangerous for the se.

6. Floor level:

There should not be any variation on floor levelling; it should be plain and uneven to avoid tripping and falling.

7. Non slip floor:

The floor should not be slippery, change the slippery marble floor to Vinyl, linoleum, Bamboo or cork slip resistant flooring.

But if you do not have budget to change the flooring, then you can put some non slip mat or carpet on the slippery floors especially in the bathroom to avoid accidents.

8. Use lever handles:

The elderly people might feel difficult to turn the knob, so it is better to install a lever handle. It is easy to use without giving much effort to open.

These are some of the ideas which you can use to add more care for your elderly people and to turn it into a seniors friendly home. You can use all of these suggestions whether you have a big villa or small flats in Chennai.

Sep 5

Why Ready to Occupy Apartments are always in Demand?

Buying a home is a dream in everyone’s life and it is one of the important decision which they take in their life. And buying a home is a long-term investment and people put all their earned money into buying their dream home. When you decide to buy an apartment or a flat in Chennai, you’ve got options like a ready-to-move apartment, under construction apartments and pre-launch apartments. But, only the ready-to-occupy apartments are in demand these days and you will find various benefits and even you can avoid some risks which you find in another type of apartments. Here, let’s discuss a few reasons why there is a demand for ready to occupy apartments and what are the benefits involved in it.

1. Avoid risks

As you know, there are a lot of risks involved in the pre-launch and under-construction apartments, but you can’t find those risks in a ready-to-move apartment and the risk factors are:

  • Disputes
  • Delay in Possession
  • Lack of Amenities
  • Quality of construction
  • Change in the plans etc

But, in the case of a ready to occupy apartments, you will not find all these risks and you can just move immediately after the purchase. You can check out our luxury apartment in Chennai, which offers a scenic view of natural surroundings and it offers a high-quality lifestyle with world-class amenities!

2. Just pay for what you get

If you buy a property which is under construction, you will not know that how the project will look once it is done and you will have some assumptions by just considering the sample flat, but you will not find it similar to what you have seen in the sample flat. Even you will find it challenging to visualize the exact one which they deliver. In the case of the ready to occupy apartments, you can just see your actual home and you can experience each part of the home before you buy it and you can check for the amenities and all other things before you decide and book your home and you will not find any surprises when they deliver the home to you!

3. Tax benefits

You need to be very smart in the home purchasing decisions because some tax benefits are involved in it. And if you’re applying for a home loan for a property which is under-construction, then you are not supposed to pay tax on the annual basis. When your home is delivered, that time you can just claim the interest which you paid to the builder (as per the section 24 b, The Income Tax Act, 1961). And you can avoid these type of taxes when you buy a ready to occupy apartments.

4. No need to wait as it is a ready to occupy apartments

If you buy an under-construction property, you may have to sit for years to get your home and it will be mostly delayed due to certain reasons. But, in the case of a ready to occupy apartments, this problem can be avoided. But, after the RERA The Real Estate (Regulation and Development) Act, 2016 the homebuyers feel safe and their properties are delivered on the specific timeframe which they have promised, but still, the ready-to-occupy apartment is the smart choice!

5. No Pre-EMI payments

As you know, you are supposed to pay the Pre-EMI payment, the interest which applies to your home loan even for your property which is under construction. And you will find a lot of pressure in paying Pre-EMI payments and in the ready-to-occupy apartment, you can avoid all these additional payments.

6. Stay away from rental payments

If you are buying an under-construction apartment, you may need to pay pre-EMI charges and the rent of your existing home and you finally end up in financial issues. So, you need to plan accordingly and buy a ready to occupy apartments to avoid this double payment.

So, you are getting ready to buy a ready-to-occupy apartment in Chennai with world-class amenities? And there are many ready-to-move apartments for sale in Chennai which are getting occupied day by day, Book your dream home today!

Home Loan Tips for first time Buyer

With the popularity and easy availability of the loan, everybody is bound with that for one thing or the other. The most common loan is a home loan, millennial are just waiting to get a job and the moment they get, they achieve the most longed dream – of getting a luxury villa.

With this excitement, sometimes we forget to look into the details of the things, which can become one of the biggest reasons for loan rejection.I can understand getting a loan is a little confusing with so much of different banks and again hundreds of policy in each bank and then a rejection after that can fuse anybody’s mind.

Hence, here I have listed some of the important things to consider about both banks as well as themselves, when one’s are planning to get a home loan.

>Consider your part:

Taking a home loan is not just a part of the bank, but also you should consider yourself too. Let’s say you research all about the bank to get the loan from but you forgot to keep your eligibility criteria clear, then chances of getting the loan will turn to less.

1. Income:

Banks always prefer a client with a regular income over a self employed man. The reason is the more the stability of income is there, the less risk to the bank regarding returning of money. If you are working in a reputed company then the chances become higher. The bank usually gives loans of 50/60 times of your salary.

2. Down payment:

The bank only gives 80-90% LTV (loan to value ratio) remaining amount you should arrange. So, save the down payment amount before applying for the loan.

3. Existing Loan:

Before giving loan, bank checks all of your expenses. One of it is existing loans. It feels that if you are already paying loans for other things then, you may feel difficult to pay to them.

4. Age:

Banks expect you to have a long tenure to repay the loan, hence your retirement age should not be close. A middle age person is most preferable. As they have a previous job experience, so the job is safe and at the same time they do have a long time to pay the loans.

Home Loan Process to buy the Apartments For Sale

Typically the processing fees are between 0.25 percent and 1.0 percent of the loan amount. This non-refundable fees need to be paid with the loan application to open and maintain the applicant’s loan account.

Then the bank will evaluate your repayment capacity. It is a crucial stage and totally depends on how much the bank is convinced with your capacity of repaying the debt and if they feel that you will be able to return the loan in time, then they will sanction the home loan.

5. Offer Letter:

After all the verification procedure, the bank will sanction your loan against the Property (Flats, Villa or Plots in Chennai) and will send you an offer letter which will include information related to the tentative principal amount, type of interest rate (fixed or floating), the rate of interest applicable, Loan tenure, mode of payment, special Scheme (if any) and other terms and conditions.

You need to sign the acceptance letter, and give a copy of it to the bank for records.

6. Legal and Valuation check:

This is a property valuation, and verification stage in which the bank will technical valuate the property by the original property documents and NOC handed over by you to the bank. Legal checks on the property are also undertaken.

7. Registration and Signing:

Once all the verification process got over the bank will prepare a legal stamp paper loan document by their lawyer. You need to sign and submit the agreement to the bank. A post dated cheque also should be submitted with the agreement letter to the bank.

8. Disbursement:

Finally, you should submit the NOC / Tripartite agreement and demand note from the builder for loan disbursement. After you sign the papers and everything is legally clear the bank will issue DD / Banker’s Cheque for property registration.

The above stated steps are based on the common Home loan process, and it may differ from bank to bank.

7 Pricey Mistakes Made By New Homeowners

At last you are shifting to your new luxury apartments in Chennai; new life is waiting for you. Which may lead you to have lots of dreams with excitement and a little fear, of course; and if you are shifting for the first then the emotional factors will get quite higher. All these things can leads to make mistakes while buying and renovating your house which is quite common. So, here I am listing all the common mistakes made by the first time homeowners for you to avoid it.

1. Being too emotional while buying a new house:

Being emotional when buying a dream house is very common, but forgetting everything can become foolishness of anyone. People choose the luxury villas which they love and don’t see if it fits their budget or not and end up spending more or getting into debt. The homeowners even forget, if they spend all their money to buy that house, then how they are going to satisfy the extra expenses that may come along with it.

2. Too overwhelm that you don’t see your expenses:

The moment you enter your new house for the first time, thousands of ideas came into play to redesign it in your own way which leads to lots of shopping and as a result you happen to buy thousands of items which you actually don’t need. This is the most basic mistake which a new mover makes; they are so overwhelming about their new house that they don’t realize the expenses they are making.

3. Too quick to renovate:

The renovation starts on the very first day itself and the planning is totally based on the emotional choices and previous experience. But you forget that every house is different. Before you start renovating or redecorating the house you first live in that for some time or give a fine look to all the details such as where the sun is hitting, which part of the house is the calmest, what is the behaviour of family like coming from outside where they prefer to rest etc. all this will help you when you make your plans to change things.

4. Want to change everything:

Once we step into our new house we want to change every possible thing, the furniture, the decoration, the doors, the windows, even the walls. Already buying a gated community villas in Chennai will cost you too much and if you renovate it beyond the level it will cost you even more. I can understand buying a house is a very emotional moment in anyone’s life, but if possible plan the renovation according to your need and budget and not according to your emotion.

5. No research:

Research can help you to save lots of money. Do lots of research to find the cost-effective renovation, the best way is to ask your neighbour as they went through the same situation as you are in now. They can guide you and help you save money in a great possible way. They can tell you about their mistakes and what they did to overcome it and they can brief you about the most common issues which occur in that area, if you are planning for marble flooring you can ask their opinion to check whether the floor can uphold the weight of the marble or not, if it does not support then this information will save you the money on wasting in the marble.

And the most important advantage is that they can introduce you with the locality, so that you can find the cheapest item for your renovation.

6. Desperately change everything to modern:

Sometimes the desperation of changing the entire traditional things will lead you to lose some of the lifelong equipment. In olden houses, you can see the attached closet, which is so strong and made with a very good wood that it is not possible to make such a closet with today’s available engineered wood/plywood. If you want the same strength you need to buy costly woods like teakwood or rosewood. So it is better to have that old shelf to give your house a traditional touch than to forfeit the benefit of it just for the sake of modernization.

7. Underestimating costs:

Renovation job can cost you a lot and takes time too, so it is always better to keep some more amount above the anticipated budget to be on a safe side. This will save your extra cost of the work which can empty your saving if not done as shifting and renovating always cost more than it actually seems.
