Allocate a realistic budget with respect to the space you need before you begin your on-the-ground search.

Amenities

Most new and upcoming residential projects are loaded with modern amenities for urban living. However, it’s nice to maintain a clear distinction between amenities that are absolute must-haves versus those that are nice to have. 

While looking for a 4 BHK flat in Kolkata, recommended amenities to consider are well-staffed gymnasiums, a swimming pool, open green spaces and jogging tracks. Other popular amenities offered by developers include green building features like solar panels, electric car charging facility, spas, badminton and squash courts, banquets and recreation centers et cetera. Many luxury residences have esteemed food and beverage establishments within the complex to make it easy for residents to entertain guests. Pick and choose those important as per your family’s current lifestyle.

Accessibility

Buying a home is a long-term commitment, both in terms of time and money. Hence, you must consider everyday aspects of normal life that will be affected by your home relocation. Take into account distance from the airport, the railway station, everyday commute to the office, and kids’ school or college while comparing 4bhk flats in Kolkata.

Social Infrastructure

A good neighborhood is made of several components. You need expansive playgrounds and green spaces to breathe in, along with good dispensaries and hospitals that service your routine health requirements. Many good localities feature shopping malls, theatres and restaurants at reasonable distances to take care of the recreation and leisure needs of the residential population as well. Whether you’re looking for a 4BHK flat or 4 BHK villa in Kolkata, you must compare properties on the basis of social infrastructure before reaching a decision.

Developer Profile

There is no dearth of good, credible real estate developers in Kolkata, many of whom have been constructing top quality residential projects over multiple decades. If you’re looking to purchase an underdeveloped property by a certain builder, it will be a good idea to visit completed projects to get an idea of the quality of construction, elevation, and façade, upkeep of open spaces, the general level of maintenance, wear and tear, et cetera. This will give you an idea of what your future home will look like in the years to come.

Occupier Profile

We don’t buy a home in isolation; in fact, when we purchase a house, we become part of a community. While you’re enquiring about society and negotiating on the price with the developer, ask a few questions to understand the type and profile of people who will come to be your neighbors. Getting along with people in your immediate neighborhood can greatly improve your overall quality of life.

ROI

Buying 4 BHK flats in Kolkata is a sizable investment, and for all practical purposes, you must treat it as such. Aggregate the costs involved as far as purchasing your home is considered and compare them to the rental yield of the different localities that you’ve shortlisted. By taking into account that rent escalation grows by about 10% every 11 months, you can calculate the long-term ROI on your asset if you were to lease it out to tenants.
