The question of budget

  • Make an estimate of the ratio of your own funds compared to what you would like to borrow
  • Approach a bank or housing finance company for a home loan/personal loan
  • If you already own a home, approach a bank to get an appraisal and see how much you can qualify for a line of credit

Things to keep in mind

  • Banks and housing finance companies will expect you to bear 15-20 % of the total cost of construction. They will only approve a loan for the balance amount
  • You will be required to pay additional charges/fees, including administrative fees, processing and verification of address fees, legal charges, government taxes, etc.

Getting the plot right

  • The size of the house you want to build should determine the size of the plot you should look to acquire
  • Check for road connectivity: the best plots have roads on all four sides
  • Check for the availability of water, electricity and waste disposal
  • When choosing a plot, factor in the distance from basic amenities like hospitals, schools, airport/railway station, your workplace and so on
  • Check for noise pollution levels, public nuisance factors, traffic density and security aspects

Things to keep in mind

  • Ensure that the land is not prone to flooding
  • Ensure that there are no known earthquake plots in close proximity
  • Make sure you get hold of the necessary construction permits
  • Ensure the plot is not under acquisition/litigation proceedings
  • Check for the plot survey number and ensure that the land title deed is clear

Picking the right crew

  • Contact local builders/contractors with prior experience in building the kind of home you're looking for
  • Do a thorough background check
  • Get a starting and a completion date
  • Let them give you a ballpark figure of what your home might cost
  • Get the cost of raw materials, labour cost and miscellaneous expenses before you sign the contract

Things to keep in mind

  • Make sure your builder/contractor holds a valid license
  • The written contract should include the contractor's full name, address, telephone number and professional license number
  • Always keep a copy of the written contract with you

 

  • It's best to purchase your land before you select your building plan
  • Choose your floor plan first, your exterior facade second
  • Remember to budget for landscaping and finishing touches
  • Calculate the budget per square foot

Plan your finances

  • The amount of the money you need will depend on the plot you're buying and the kind of house you want to build
  • Once you've made an estimate of the funds you need, you can approach a bank for a loan
  • When you're allocating budgets ensure that you have different budget splits for the various phases of construction
  • Do keep some money aside for any other unexpected cost that may arise

  • To protect your home from termites and pests you need to undertake pest control before the construction starts
  • Since the plot is open, you'll incur substantially lower expenses and even need minimum labour and termicide
  • As the pest control needs to be done regularly at this phase, the builder and pest control agent will have to work closely with each other

Vaastu Compliant

Looking for that perfect plot to build your home? Before you secure a plot, make sure it's in line with the principles of Vaastu Shastra.

Choose the right plot

  • The best shapes for the plots of land are square or rectangular , facing squarely on the four cardinal directions
  • Plots facing the north-east corner bring health, prosperity and fame
  • The west-north extension on the western side brings health and prosperity whereas the north-west extension on the north side should be avoided

 

  • Square and rectangular plots are good for construction
  • East-facing plots bring fame, but aren’t good for financial progress
  • Corner plots with roads on the south-east, north-west, south-west should be avoided as far as possible. If it is unavoidable, then the principles of Vaastu shall have to be followed to minimize or eliminate the ill effects

 

  • Avoid plots that have irregular shapes
  • The south-east extension on the east side and the south side should be avoided
  • Avoid plots with south-west extensions
  • North-east corner plots having roads on the north and east are considered good
