Advantages of Owning a Second Home

Far from the humdrum of everyday life, amidst the lap of nature, with all the modern facilities and amenities, the lure of a second home has attracted many who want to regularly switch off from their hectic schedules. As life and lifestyle become increasingly frenetic, the comforts of a holiday home are the most welcome. The advantages are manifold, where the returns far outweigh the investments and capital costs over time.

No more planning for a holiday

Among the most tangible advantages of a second home is foregoing the process of planning a trip. Today, booking in a luxury hotel or resort is expensive and requires extensive preparations. Bags and baggage have to be packed, schedules need to be prepared and a budget has to be chalked out. But all this is mostly made redundant when you have a second home. Consider the fact that if you have your own house to stay in a holiday destination nearby, all your planning would involve is hopping on to your vehicle and heading home! Again, this is made possible through a well-maintained and fully furnished house that allows comfortable living in a familiar, homely environment. Also, if you have your own house, there are no throes of scheduling and planning to the dot. You can do whatever you want, whenever you want!

Change with changing times

There were times when real estate was a status symbol and reflected in the lifestyle of the crème-de-la-crème population and the concept of second homes emerged. To break the monotony of day-to-day life, people started looking for a home at their favourite holiday destinations. Many people have homes in the outskirts and outside Kolkata like Shantiniketan, Bishnupur, etc. The affluent segments of the society began to invest in properties at their desired and most preferred getaways to drive away from their mundane daily routine. The ‘bagan bari’ or a second home started becoming very popular and gradually it added on to one’s status symbol; all for a certain section of people. But an inner desire to stay in the lap of nature was always there in the hearts of the common man too. The only problem was the high amount of investments involved to procure a bungalow or a ‘bagan bari’ at one’s favourite holiday destination. Popular tourist destinations attract people of all ages and communities. Today, the concept of affordable second homes had emerged, which offers a clear prestigious title in all these places. Second homes in the form of studio apartments with an affordable price tag are fulfilling the dreams of many nature lovers as well. Such lifestyle ‘second homes’ are becoming the order of the day. These are getaway weekend homes that are affordable to all strata of society. This affordability is further catalysed by the availability of loans from various financial institutions, making second homes good value for money.

Access to all facilities

People head for a holiday to embrace luxury and enjoy all the facilities and amenities provided by a hotel or resort. But this comes at a cost. Now imagine having your own second home in a holiday destination that allows you to settle into your familiar environs with all the facilities and amenities to make your stay comfortable? Just like an upscale hotel that provides facilities like a gym, swimming pool, community centre, gaming centre, outdoor sports, and security; similarly, in your own second home, you can have all these facilities available to you. The ethos of community living is amplified in such residential projects. Get My Ghar can help you find beautiful row bungalows also. The hidden perks are manifold. Say, for example, waking up every day to the sight of your favourite scenery on the horizon? Or the sound of waves splashing gently against the rocks, in your second home near the beach? There is hope in the horizons. And Get My Ghar will provide you that hope in the form of different types of properties that we are connected with. Hence, the soothing possibilities are endless!

Purchasing a second home is pride-enhancing

Imagine your pride in being the owner of your second home. This feeling will remain unsurpassed and stay with you for long. Moreover, with the average age of the buyer declining in the country, you can always share the journey of your homeownership with others, thus inspiring them too.

If until now you were in a dilemma as to own a second home or not, wipe away all negative thoughts and definitely make a positive mindset to have a second home. Apart from the advantages mentioned, you will understand that there are way more advantages than you can think of.
