Reasons to Buy a Burial Plot
Nobody is actually dying to purchase an burial plot. In any case, consider it those presents for yourself that you desire to not have to utilize – for a long, long time. What’s more, similarly as you’re not in a rush to utilize an burial plot, it’s ideal to not surge the most common way of making a buy. This is, all things considered, a home of sorts, and like all real estate transactions, you’ll need to carefully consider the pros and cons.
People buy burial plots while they’re still around for three main reasons:
Spare family the burden. Consider it part of estate planning. “You don’t want to be shopping around for a burial plot when you have a dead body waiting to be buried. Shopping under such a stressful situation should be avoided,” says Gail Rubin, the president of Albuquerque’s Historic Fairview Cemetery nonprofit organization and a member of the cemetery committee at Congregation Albert, a Reform synagogue.
As if to underscore the point, Rubin mentions that she once received a phone call from a woman looking to buy a burial plot on the morning of Christmas Eve.
Put your mind at ease. Along with sparing your family some stress, you may just feel better about knowing that there’s a plan in place for your body after you’ve departed. Ironically, buying one may allow you to breathe easier.
Lock in the price. You know how it is, with inflation and all. Wouldn’t it be better to lock in a price now instead of years down the line when your time finally comes?
Reasons Not to Buy a Burial Plot
Just as it can make economic and emotional sense to purchase your burial plot now, there are some reasons you may want to hold off.
Burial plot buyer’s remorse. “(Plots) can be very hard to sell if you change your mind,” Rubin says. After all, what if you or your family moves away from the area? Will it still make sense for your burial plot to be eight states away?
