Those who believe in auspicious days for buying property, one of the three-and-a-half popular mahurats of the year is here. And those who like the fervor of the festive season to have a new beginning, here’s the reason: Dussera is just around the corner. It’s time to take possession of a new house and move in. The season for celebrations has already started and with Dussera, the market is just going to brim with more activities and offers. So if you have been thinking a lot about realty these days, this is the best time to clinch your deal.
So what is it about Dussera that makes it such an auspicious time to take possession of a house? Vijayadashmi or Dussera, as it’s popularly known as, is believed to bring in Vijay, which means victory. Hence the festival makes a new investment, by buying a land, a home or vehicle on the day of Vijayadashmi, favourable. In Hindu culture, we generally do not invest or buy a home during the time of Pitrupaksha. Now is when the wait for the end of Pitrupaksha is over. It’s widely believed that if you have some wish, then Dussera is the time when it will be fulfilled. Isn’t it a good enough reason to not continue waiting for the correct mahurath or auspicious moment, and make that really important decision of moving in now?
We believe it is. Every year witnesses a rise in bookings at the time of Dussera. It is during the first nine days of Navaratri that people actually come forward to book a flat as that is believed to bring in prosperity.
But auspicious occasion notwithstanding, here’s a reality check. One cannot deny that currently there is a slowdown in the buying behaviour of the customers. Because of the current state of economy, many buyers are in a dilemma about investing in new property. And those who have already made the big decision are in two minds about moving in. But buyers, here’s a tip. You might be holding yourself back anticipating a decrease in prices, but such a situation might not come. Unfortunately, there are chances that the rising cost of construction material might only result in higher property rates. We say that with the festive fervor taking over the buyers and builders, there’s a movement seen in realtors. It’s time to get ready to take the benefit of the wide choice of offers laid before you.
Make the most of the season. Dussera is the time to let bygones be and start something new with reinstated hopes and dreams. So evoke the majestic intervention and blessings of the goddess. Take the plunge. Welcome your new home and have a happy new beginning.
