Apart from pleasant weather, Monsoon is considered as the best season to search home.
India’s monsoon season comes after summer and is known for its frequent rains. Where there people get sudden relief from the blazing heat on one side, the heavy rain causes water everywhere.

Iftekhar Ahmed, MD of Nirala India says “It is smart to look out for property during monsoon season because the weather condition is toughest in India during this period. If someone is looking to buy property during this period he can find out whether the property has problems pertaining to seepage, leakage etc. Also the perspective buyer can find out if the area is prone to flooding, leading to traffic jams and transportation issues.”

In fact they get full feature of the inventory available because developers also open new towers and ready to move in. So early searching gives opportunity to get units of choice which home buyers miss generally on later on stage due to festival rush.”

Still we suggest home buyers to choose property over offers and discounts. For housing societies, monsoon season brings a challenge for drainage, connectivity, construction, architecture, amenities and maintenance in society. Rainy season testify overall maintenance of a society that includes restriction of seepage, leakage and any other condition.”
