The Kumar family have been saving up to pur­chase their first dream home for the past 10 years.

This finally turned into a real­ity. The family is eager to move into their new home.

Krishna Kumar said the house would be a life-changing expe­rience for his family as the liv­ing standards would be raised significantly and the space was large which would provide them with the opportunity of hosting large family gather­ings.

This is a freehold property, lo­cated in Vatuwaqa, Suva, with 814 square metres that con­sists of a double-story concrete structure.

The ground floor flat which consists of three executive bedrooms with one master bed­room and has a large spacious sitting room and veranda with two car ports.

It has a beautiful landscape, large areas of spaces in both the back and the front with all gardens having a rock lining.

Mr Kumar said he had been looking for a freehold property as such for a while now, with a large enough area to add on a second double story house in the future.

He said his entire family moved to Suva from Nadi about 18 years ago and they had faced many difficulties to get to where they are today.

“I am a Suva market vendor, Justice of Peace and Director for Krishna Local Fruits. I have been selling my produce (main­ly watermelon and pineapple) with a lot of struggles and col­lecting money to buy our home was not easy for us,” he said.

“Now I can proudly say my ef­forts and hard work has finally paid off.”

He said his son, Krishneel Kumar came to find out about the property was listed on Fa­cebook and took the initiative to contact Harcourts Fiji agent, Jasmindar Singh. He helped turn our dream into a reality.

“Mr Singh was really helpful in guiding us through the pro­cess of purchasing the proper­ty,” Mr Kumar added.

“I am very thankful and appre­ciative of the help and support provided to Mr Singh.”

He said his most recent mile­stone achievement was to pur­chase this house for approxi­mately $600,000.

“The current valuation of the property stands at around $900,000 and we were offered 40 per cent discount market value and thought this would be the perfect time for a property in­vestment,” he added.

He said he was excited and was looking forward to her daughter who resides in New Zealand to visit.

The house is currently under­going small renovations and paintings. The family is plan­ning to move to their new home sometime next week.
