If you are living in Delhi and getting an opportunity to buy a resale DDA flat, then no wonders you can’t say no to it. Every year lots of Delhiites submit Delhi Development Authority housing scheme form to become a lucky one who can get hold of a DDA flat in top most preferred locations like Dwarka, Janakpuri, Rohini, Vasant Kunj, etc. These locations not only considered as best investment but also have the potential to offer High Return on Investment.

According to a real estate expert, “A resale property comes with an advantage. First of all, you can buy the locality, floor, and unit as per your choice which is not possible if you are applying for a fresh house under the DDA scheme. Secondly, a fresh property cannot be exchanged immediately with any other allottee, while in a resale property you can sell your property at any point of time,”

Moreover, buying a resale DDA flat is much easier than any other under-construction unit. One can easily get an approval of Home Loan from nationalized banks and also the procedure of buying it is hassle-free. But there are certain important tips to be kept in mind while purchasing a resale DDA flat. Take a look:
