South Mumbai is one of the most expensive place in entire India. To buy a real estate in Mumbai will cost a you a fortune. The real estate prices have been rising like crazy for last couple of years and being a Middle class person cant even think of buying a house to stay. Housing loans and EMI are a scary thought.
We had to buy a house and that too in South Mumbai then whats the way out. As they say NECESSITY IS MOTHER OF ALL INVENTION. The thought occur journey of thousand miles start with first step. so I thought to save and put aside 2 square feet worth of money in a Mutual Fund (Ideally to buy 1bhk of 400 sq ft will take 200 months almost 16 years but anyways started a SIP for an amount which was equivalent to 2 square feet at that time.
Now its almost 100 months (near about 8 years )so practically I bought 200 square feet worth of amount but as they say FORTUNE FAVOURS THE BRAVE. The amazing that happened markets supported and the appreciation in last one year is more than 50% and the amount comes to nearly 300 square feet and with few borrowed money from relatives and some old jewellery. The Target is achieved way ahead of the time and Finally bought a house in SOUTH MUMBAI. Its such an amazing feeling and confidence builder.
