2 BHK or 3 BHK?
It is a difficult dilemma since both have their respective pros and cons. People generally push themselves for a bigger home, thereby straining their finances. Cost is just one of the limitations to buy a 3 BHK flat. The reasons to choose 2 BHK over 3 BHK units are further given below:
- COST – The first and foremost reason to go for a 2 BHK flat is its nominal cost. For obvious reasons like size the cost of a 2 BHK flat is much less compared to a 3 BHK unit. Thus making it affordable for the majority middle class population of India.
- EASY TO MAINTAIN – The expenditure on a house does not end with buying it. Furniture, machines and other aesthetics require a lot of money. Furthermore maintaining the cleanliness and decorum of the house is also no easy task. 3BHK of bigger size with maintenance based on per sq. ft. model will drastically increase monthly maintenance. In that case a smaller house makes it easier for the dweller to maintain it. Another point for 2 BHK!!
- BETTER INVESTMENT OPTION – 2 BHK flats are always in huge demand, making them a better choice for investment as they are easier to sell or rent out. 2 BHK flats have higher value of appreciation which means that the value of the asset will continue to increase with time. So you are up for a profit no matter how old the asset gets.
- COMFORTABLE FLAT SIZE – 2 BHK units are perfect for nuclear families and couples but are not very ideal for bigger families.
Practically 3 BHK flats have nothing more to offer than its size whereas 2 BHK flats prove to be more suitable for people of all classes. Stating the points above, I’d say 2 BHK outweighs 3 BHK in terms of advantages offered.
