After a lot of searching around for that dream house (physically & on-line) you finally find one! What do you do? Just buy and move into it or you evaluate the other basic social factors too. Of course! There are a lot of factors that need to be taken into account when short-listing a particular property such as Infrastructure, schools, market, hospital etc. What are these basic but the most important factors that should influence your decision when you are looking for a place to settle down or invest in a property. Listed below are a few of these factors:

  • Good connectivity:  Well maintained roads, bridges and railways. Commuting to work and back home is a daily routine for most of us and takes a lot of our time. If the ride is smooth, life appears good! A good availability of public transit services is a boon for all
  • Strong Tele-communication systems and connectivity:  this is the age of computers, mobiles, satellites and what-not’s.  Everyone has a mobile including the maid, the cleaner etc. so it is very important to have good telecom services and internet connectivity in an area.
  • Reliable and affordable energy: all our daily household chores are now being done with the aid of electronic gadgets- washing machines, fridge, microwave, geyser, mixer-grinder, etc. Hence to have regular and uninterrupted power supply is now a necessity.
  • Educational institutes: Having good schools and other educational institutes in the neighbourhood is an advantage for both parents and children.
  • Good passenger connections to other cities: we all keep moving from one place to another in search of a good job, education, health facilities and more. So good and quick connectivity between different cities is a bonus.
  •  High quality water and waste water systems: regular availability of pure and safe drinking water is a must. Also, it is necessary to have a good waste water management system in place to treat water for recycling and also conserving it for the future.
  • Sufficient parking: with almost every household having at least one car, and many of us having two cars, a two-wheeler or more, sufficient parking space is a huge concern for the present generation.
  •  Quality healthcare facilities: pollution, stress, diseases, allergies are a part of everyday life. Having good healthcare facilities in your locality is very essential for everyone.

These are some of the factors we have suggested but there can be many more and it would also vary from person to person and family to family. Always create that check-list of factors which can make your life smoother and pleasant to live when short-listing place – “a home”.
