Buying a home is definitely a "financial investment", whether it's a good investment or not depends on a lot of factors.
The old adage-you have to live somewhere, comes into play.
You need a roof over your head so buying a home can be better than renting if you choose a good neighborhood, don't overpay for the house and don't over extend yourself to make the purchase.

Yes buying a home can be a good investment. But there are a lot of factors you need to consider in investing on houses or condominiums. You have to understand that if you want to invest on a home it means that at some point you will have to sell that property. So if you decide not to rent the place to a tenant and choose to live in it yourself then you should take care of it. House prices will increase eventually especially if the location is good. So manage your home properly so when the time comes that you want to sell the home it can have a better value.

Buying a home is a good investment that will appreciate over time, and eventually help provide for retirement by not having a house payment in your old age once you’ve paid off the mortgage. Alternatively, you can make money selling the house when you become too old to live alone or just need to downsize to a smaller house or a condo.

Buying a home is definitely a good investment if its a well contemplated purchase keeping in mind the location, neighborhood, scope of renovation, future prospect etc. A home not only provides lifetime security for you and your next of kin, but also contemporaneously insures you an asset that plays a vital role in reinforcing your investment opportunities plus retirement goals and privileges you with empowered living possibilities along with additional rental income, impending and progressive outcomes. However, always safeguard your investment with professional legal assistance to minimize coincidental risks.

Buying a house is always a good investment considering the location,neighbourhood and other factors that might come into play in the future if you ever consider to sell it off.

Hello Guys,

Buying a home is likely to be the best long term investment just you check once the location, neighbourhood and other factors its helps in the future if you ever consider to sell it off.

If you are based in mumbai, then I will suggest you to invest in navi mumbai rather than mumbai

Thanks

Hi,
Yes buying a home is a good and long term investment, but you have need to consider some factors while buying a home like location, neighborhood, the condition of the house and maintenance cost.
Thanks!!

Remember . . . . the Thread Title is asking about the "BEST FIRST INVESTMENT", so it might very well be that there are other aspects in one's life which could be more important than owning a house.

Of course, Real Estate Agents will always answer that a house is always the BEST . . . . and should be the FIRST; but there may be other priorities depending upon your own personal circumstances.
