Property prices fell during the Corona period
Corona epidemics have led to a sharp decline in housing property sales. During the July-September quarter, sales in India’s top seven cities fell 46% to 29,520 units. Demand for housing property has declined due to the Koro epidemic, according to a report by property consultant Anaroc. Home sales in these seven cities stood at 55,080 units in the same period last year. For this reason, good property can be found at a lower price at this time.
Getting a discount on property registration
People are hesitant to buy a new property because of the Coronation Age. In view of this, other states including Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra and Karnataka have announced two to three per cent exemption in registration fees to boost the property business. This has also reduced the final cost of the property.
Getting a subsidy
Under the Prime Minister’s Housing Scheme, if you are buying a house for the first time, the government provides a subsidy of up to Rs 2.67 lakh on home loan interest. If you are thinking of buying an affordable house then with this plan you can complete this unfinished work. Applications for this can be made from March 31, 202.
