Owning a House is an ambition for most of us. Especially having your own house in your native Karur is really special. Due to your profession, you will not find time to build your own house and always prefer to buy a house that's readily available for sale. This article from MyKarur will help you in buying a house in the Karur district in Tamil Nadu.
House sale in Karur happens throughout the year. Many native people of Karur in Tamil Nadu, who are working away from their hometown - prefer to buy a house here, as this is considered as the best-fixed investment. The other reason for buying a house is - they are interested in settling in Karur after retirement. Few people even consider owning a house in their hometown as a sentiment.
If you are planning to buy a house in Karur, then you have two options. You can contact the builders directly or you can contact the house brokers in Karur.
Let's now look into the important factors that influence House sale in Karur
Budget is the first most important factor for house sale in Karur. It will decide whether to buy a house immediately or postpone it to the future.
The average price range in which houses are sold in Karur is from ₹ 38 lakhs to ₹ 55 lakhs. This is the budget preference for most of the house buyers in Karur. The budget determines the location, facilities, and size of the house.
I will further explain what type of house can be bought with a budget below 10 lakhs, 20 lakhs, 30 lakhs, and 45 lakhs.
House sale in Karur below 20 lakhs
In a peaceful and pollution Less location, the land cost alone for the house will be above ₹ 13 lakhs. It will increase every month based on the market demand.
House sale in Karur below 20 lakhs will be available in the outer area from the city. You have to sacrifice the easy access to transport and safety in these locations. Such houses will have one bedroom, one hall, and a kitchen. Car parking facilities will not be available in these budget houses.
Surely some people will say that it’s possible to buy a house below 20 lakhs near Karur city. But in my experience, it might be a trap. There may be other issues in that location. The cost of the house is based on the location in which it is constructed. But the location's land price is based on how peaceful that location is.
If a location is peaceful and near the city, then the cost of the house and the land will surely be high.
So for a budget below 20 lakhs, you can buy a very small house with limited facilities in the outer area of Karur city.
Old House sale in Karur below 10 lakhs
House for sale in Karur below ₹ 10 lakhs nearby city is a rare case. 15 kilometres away from Karur city, the housing plot land value will be below 1 lakhs. You can buy such plots and build a new house. The land value alone will be 13 to 15 lakhs in good housing areas. So it’s not possible to buy a house below 10 lakhs in these areas.
Old house sale in Karur below 10 lakhs will be available in very remote villages. And old houses can only be bought at this price. New houses at this price are not available. Concrete rooftops will not be available in such houses.
Generally, housebuilders don’t select such areas, because buyers are not interested in buying a house 15 km away from the city.
You can buy a house below 10 lakhs in the villages of Karur taluks; such as Aravakurichi, Kadavur, Kulithalai.
House sale in Karur below 30 lakhs
New house sale in Karur below 30 lakhs was very common 2 years back. Now in 2021, if you are planning to buy at this budget, then you need to compromise on a few facilities such as one bedroom with an attached bathroom.
Post-March 2020, the cost of construction has increased due to two main reasons. The first reason is - the labor cost increases due to the corona problem. The building workers, with previous health issues, did not return to construction work.
The second main reason is - the raw material for construction has increased by 30% after March 2021.
The cost of land and property has lowered in metropolitan cities, as most of the people have returned to their hometown for work from home.
The working people have now shifted their interest to buy a house in their hometown.
So the cost of the property, real estate, and house has increased to a significant amount in tier 3 cities like Karur.
In a good housing area, you can buy a small house for sale in Karur for below 30 lakhs with limited facilities.
House sale in Karur below 45 lakhs
As of August 2021, most houses are bought between ₹ 45 lakhs to ₹ 55 lakhs budget. The difference in this price range is due to the location and the facilities available in the house.
House sale in Karur below 45 lakhs will have all the facilities for a family of 6 members. The houses in this budget will have good portico space, in which the family members can sleep during night time and can take rest in the day time.
These types of houses will have a good road face so that you can easily take out your car and park it.
The air circulation inside the house will be more in this type of budget.
With a budget below 45 lakhs, you can buy a house with good facilities in a peaceful housing area around Karur
Location is the second most important factor for house sale in Karur. The budget of the house varies based on location preferences.
Safety issues, water availability, distance from Karur City, nearby hospitals are the factors that need to be considered in deciding the location of the house which you are planning to buy.
If you are planning to buy a house in a pollution-free - peaceful location, with easy access to transport facilities and nearby schools and colleges in Karur, then the price of the house will be more.

Dual overhead water tank
Underground water tank
Almost all the houses built in Karur will have a car parking facility. This space should be sufficient to park car and two 2 wheelers.
All the individual houses in Karur will have a borewell. Before constructing the basement of a building, the builder will surely drill the borewell. The depth of the bore well will be 300 to 500 feet and sometimes it might be more deep based on the availability of the underground water.
The water from this borewell will be used to construct the walls of the building. The builders generally use a temporary bore well water pump to take water during construction. After the construction work is finished, he will remove the temporary pump from the bore well.
The buyer of the house will install a new water pump in the bore well. The builder will provide his support for the installation of the new pump in the borewell.
Dual overhead water tank:
Few builders provide dual water tanks in new houses. One for drinking water storage and another one for hard water storage purposes.

Construction statuses of houses are of two types. The first one is ready to move house. And the second type is - a house under partial construction, which means the Floorings, electrical and bathroom fittings are in progress.
Ready to move:
Most of the houses for sale in Karur will be in ready-to-move condition. Only after the builder finishes all the work, he will quote the price of the house. This is because, due to the government policies and covid issues, the price of the raw material keeps changing every week, so he will quote the price only after the construction of the house is completed.
You can buy a house under construction, only if you are planning to use a particular flooring material and bathroom fittings. In this case, you can buy an under-construction house and ask the builder to install the flooring tiles and bathroom fittings as your interest.
The cost of the house will vary based on your choice of material.

The labor cost and the furniture cost need to be done by the house buyer.
