HUDA leaves it to the private developers t acquire land and build sector roads

Building roads had always been the federal government’s duty. But the Haryana federal government has silently cleaned its hands of this vital job, mentioning problems in land acquisition.

The tasks at hand were too huge maybe, for the government or maybe it just didn’t want to be part of a long troublesome process. So it found a way out. The government has now now decided not to go ahead with this task themselves.

Rather, it has left it to personal building contractors to straight get land from farmers as well as create roads. The action will quicken projects which commonly get held up since standard framework is not in place. While this will certainly assist purchasers and investors as they are now most likely to get flats or offices on schedule, they could additionally need to pay a price for this, as home builders might hand down the higher acquisition expense, as a result of the added land for roadways they will certainly now need to get to customers.

The federal government worked out this remedy when it located that the Haryana Urban Development Authority had a master plan for an area, however was not being able to acquire land for its roadways as a result of the strict clauses in the 2013 purchase policy.

So, with the destiny of the area unpredictable, as no township can be created without sector roads, the government determined to leave it to personal players to do the obtaining of this land, or lets say acquire land bidding adieu to long processes due to politics or government involvement. Exclusive home builders will currently work out directly with farmers and also buy land from them and also develop sector streets and road networks as per the master plan.

To compensate project owners (builders) for the expense it incurs in purchasing land and also structure roadways, the authority will allow programmers a higher flooring room index (FSI). In this case, the FSI will certainly be 0.875, meanings if the programmer makes use of 1000 sqm land to develop a road, he will certainly be enabled 875 sqm additional built-up area in his project.

 

Will this establish a faster work regime and township completion is yet to be seen, but it cannot be as hard as the government authorities sitting on it. It might be a terrific help in establishing a brand-new area like South of Gurgaon and will certainly help the developers in timely finalization of tasks as they will certainly not have to depend on the authority to obtain land.

It might still not be easy, owing to two private players now getting involved, one the farmer as seller, who would obviously ask for a hefty price, and the developer who will bargain hard but might give in to investor pressures and make money from somewhere else, but pay the farmer more than what’s worth or due. The price will flow down to the end user who will end up shelling more money for the same house.

Is it a good thing or a bad organizational error? Time will judge.

Early birds find it easier to make a nest, buy a home as soon as you can

The eras gone advised you to buy a home late. Once you had “other expenses” out of the way like education of your children and their weddings. The trends and wisdom now dictate to do the opposite. The turnaround of thoughts has come gradually. You have more younger people now coming out to buy their first home. Of course, the situations, and the economy change has helped bring about this difference in approach.

Buying a property at an early age helps in many ways. You are buying it much cheaper than you would say 10 years from now, if you see it that way. The home loans available to you when you are below 30, albeit the interest being the same at a later age, are much lower as the tenure is much longer. The banks find it safer to provide you this duration looking at the the fact that you are just starting your life and repayment would not be a problem, other expenses are not as much as a person in his 40s, the responsibilities are less, the diseases are presumably left for later in life. It also help you make an easier life, as EMI that sounds and feels higher does not seem as high 5 years down the line when your repayment capacity along with your earnings is much higher. The probability of you gaining and acquiring more assets down your life line are higher, as you have one thing out of the way and that is the roof you call your own home.  you may also upgrade to a bigger home as your income grows, as selling your first home provides for a good buffer. This is a more sensible approach, as waiting to reach a certain point to invest into a property sometimes never comes. Once you are stable, then investing in assets like commercial properties or equities or any other savings are much better. After all, you have a good foundation laid; the building stands better.

Lets take an example. Suppose you invest in a property of Rs 60 Lacs when you are 30. Later at the age of 40, your repayment ability will increase. the a house with capital appreciation may now be worth Rs 85 Lacs. Add another home loan eligibility of Rs 30 Lacs, you could now afford a house worth Rs 1 Crore and 15 Lacs. So this way you have grown into having a higher asset and this goes on till you have a great asset value on retirement.

Lower EMIs are easier to pay off when you are younger as your expenses have not yet touched their highs. In case, the spouse is working, it all adds up to a better home loan and repayment ability for the couple.

The tax benefits are great as well. Consider this. As per existing laws, as reported in Times Property today, a deduction of Rs 1.5 Lacs is allowed against interest on borrowed capital. the loan must have been taken to construct or acquire a house. the construction should have been completed within 3 years from the end of financial year in which the capital was borrowed. The borrower will need to ask the bank to furnish the documentation for interest paid over the years. For details, please consult your tax consultant as well, as I am not an expert but blog to educate and bring to light certain things to you.

Interest rates cut by RBI will invite more home loans

The fact that interest rates are headed down, is a feeler that the RBI seems to have thrown in to the investor and loan taker for home loans. The RBi is expected to make credit easier for consumers and corporates to attract more business for the banks and revive industries like the real estate whose rates have been stagnant for 2 years or so barring properties already given possession.

Whether a floating rate attracts you or is a fixed rate beneficial for you i always a big question, as loans are generally taken for long term when it comes to home loans. If you decide to take a fixed rate, you will know what you are paying throughout your loan tenure and the EMI will not change even if interest rates go up in the future. On the other hand, if interest rates drop in future, the borrower with floating rate will stand to gain, and pay lower EMIs. Floating rates are governed by market conditions and the RBI constantly varies rates, thus ensuring the banks do so, affecting your pocket, positively or otherwise. Monthly instalments are always a big factor in lives of people specially the middle class and a few thousand here and there turns out to be quite a lot in the long scheme of things.

The trends right now show the rates to be on the downward slide, hence a floating rate looks the way to go, but if you think that in the long run this will change, then a fixed interest with a fixed rate might just be the thing for you to go for.

Real estate is churning in investments, and big time for that matter, with reports running in, that real estate is now the fifth largest destination for foreign investments in the country and is the second largest employer after agriculture in our huge population. The industry is not saturated by any means and is expected to grow by 30 percent in the next 10 years. A decade of growth with interest rates looking to go down, could make this industry a big money roping machine for the country over the next decade. The time to invest is now and it would be wise to take a call to invest. Invest safely though.

Affordable housing schemes are in the offerings as state governments are looking to house the homeless with lucrative options. A positive government at the helm of things, is not a sitting duck by any means and is looking to make the most of the opportunity India has today. With foreign investments growing and relations with other countries looking to get better, India is attracting money like a magnet.

Why would you turn away from the reported fact that the real estate sector contributes 8% to the GDP of India? There is no reason to turn away. The real estate is inviting you to ensure good returns over the near future and the time looks ripe to invest or buy for end use. don’t miss the train.

Affordable housing woos many to Gurgaon in 2015

After the Delhi Development Authority did its bit in 2014 for Delhi in terms of affordable housing, it is time for Gurgaon to take over the baton with the new government in place. Mr Manohar Lal Khattar, honorable chief minister of Haryana, and part of the BJP making it bis across virtually every election on the country is riding a wave of success, but is aware that the need for delivery and expectancy on this government is way higher compared to the UPA regime.

The new government is tapping in builders to promote affordable housing but are blissfully aware that one agency or the government by itself will not be able to fulfill needs and hence are calling on corporate to fulfill their Corporate Social Responsibility via the affordable housing schemes.  the government would pitch in with a share in terms of costs as well, the report in Times of India read.

Affordable housing is attractive, more transparent in the form of cheap pricing and selling on carpet areas and is many a times located in the middle of quite expensive societies. This gives an advantage to the end user in terms of location and pricing, the key factors that decide real estate anywhere.

Over 40 developers had applied for licenses of affordable housing in Haryana, till last heard. It is not the sheer number of developments, but it is the price attraction that will pull many to fulfill their dreams.

As real estate apartments and villas move away from the reach of the common man in general, and with ricing prices, the trend does not seem to deviate as there are still many who can afford the deals. The affordable housing comes as a saver for lakhs of lower middle class and poor families. Affordable housing offers transparency which many are looking at to be changed overall as well. A clear carpet area sold has been in demand for many years now. Low booking fees, and low overall cost will not hamper the present will secure the future for many.

The fact that no hidden charges will be levied will always provided much needed insurances as well. The reputation of many developers has taken a hit after a series of complaints and affordable housing still attracts many a homeless although the need is much higher than the demand.

For a metropolitan city like Gurgaon where a 2 BHK apartment sells for anywhere between Rs 65 lakh and Rs 1 crore, the new policy of the government has brought a shining ray of hope for people of low income groups as they would now be able to buy a 300 sq ft house for as low as Rs 12 lakh through a draw of lots in the scheme. The price for a 645 sq ft flat would amount to about Rs 25 lakh.

As per its terms and conditions, the policy allows developers to construct and sell small housing units — measuring between 300 sq ft and 645 sq ft to the economically weaker section (EWS) and low income group (LIG) category.

The maximum allotment rate for the apartment units approved under such projects will be Rs 4,000 per sq ft of carpet area in Gurgaon, Faridabad, Panchkula and Pinjore-Kalka; Rs 3,600 per sq ft for other high and medium potential towns and Rs 3,000 per sqft for the remaining low potential towns.

This sounds good and as long as the developers are on time as committed, it will be an additional bonus.

Is it a good time to invest in properties within Gurgaon?

Ireo City Central

Well, lets leave the formalities and come to the point. Investment in property has always lured the average Indian. Afterall, property has rarely let people down. However, a series of bad experiences in the last 8 to 10 years of so since many small developers came to the fore and the smaller ones became bigger, the choice of property became too diverse and not everything appreciates in value as the other. Some are valued better depending mostly on location, construction quality and if it is a commercial property then the number of brands and footfall present in the complex.

Is it pure luck? Is it vision? Do we call it vision if we are lucky? Well, in many cases it has been dumb luck if the property appreciated multiple times in as many number of years, but in most cases it is careful judgement, looking at developer profiles, government plans and master plans, and the surrounding areas along with accessibility that helps decide the advantage
in acquiring one property over the other.

Often, many people decide on a property based on others’ opinion and not a careful study. Well look at it this way, if the other person made some money somewhere or if you decided he was a god investor, remember the circumstances are unique each time, and you are best off taking advice of a good property dealer. An experienced real estate consultant will explain things differently. He will give the past and present of a property and appreciation in different areas. Yes, he is there to make money as well, and a commision is fairly due for all his expertise but look at the bigger picture. Are you making money based on his advice? If yes, giving a dime to make a dollar or even a few Lakhs (in case of bigger properties) and making Crores is always a good deal.

A lot of times, we as a society hold on to our money deare than others, but money makes money and saving some to lose a lot in not fair sense. Be professional, go out there, ask the advisers, and consultants, explore the area a bit , read some reviews and moreover look at the developer’s previous properties to make a fair judgement. Often, a developer who markets and advertises a lot, will pass on the expenses to you. Dont judge it by name itself.

Gurgaon will grow in chunks and it is important to gauge what is growing at what pace. At this time, Golf Course road is very promising looking at the development of Metro and its infrastructure. Among mid ranged to high ranged properties, Golf Course Extension road has a lot to offer. Southern Peripheral Road looks like the next big thing. Dwarka Expressway, to me, looks 4-5 years away but will definitely seat a city in itself.

Whether you are looking at 2 BHK or # BHK or a 4 BHK apartment or a luxury villa or a floor in Gurgaon, it is imperative to study, look around, and make a fair judgement. The cheapests or the most expensive may always not be the best. Whether this article left you searching for more answers than giving you a fair view of reviewing areas or properties in Gurgaon, is left for you to answer. After all, open eyes do see everything. Don’t shut them because you can hear a so called good advice.

If i was able to motivate you to look around more, I achieved what I set out for. It is a goo time to invest, but don’t just invest, thinkvest (think and invest).

Why SPR in Gurgaon is the way to go ?

spr

The city, in terms of real estate, is basically divided into sectors of developments, and the seven strategic expressways, that connect the major parts of the city together, more or less, guide the rate of property evaluations, and would be the way to look ahead, when we talk about what is to come, and what is already completed.

These roads are

NH8,

M G road,

golf Course road,

Golf course extension road,

Sohna road,

Southern Peripheral road

and

Dwarka expressway, also called the Northern Peripheral Road.

The Southern Peripheral road is the expressway that connects Sohna road and the Golf Course extension road

to NH8

is a strategic part of the city.

Priced well below its neighboring golf course extension road, and Sohna road, SPR has many reputed developers, lining up to build along the road. DLF, NINE X, Unitech, BPTP, M3M, tata, today, Space, CHD, tulip, all have their projects lined up, along this road. The road already has some projects like Tulip, which have been given possession, while NINE X city is expected to start possession by march 2015.

let us look at life on SPR in the future.

Most developments nestled along SPR are 5 minutes drive to Golf Course road, Sohna road, Golf course extension road, NH8, and the Dwarka express way. This, also provides good connectivity, to the Delhi International airport, which is about 20 minutes away. the centre of town is 10 minutes away. Connectivity to the centre of South Delhi, via faridabad road will be only 25 minutes. The future will also see the metro coming in, which will further enhance connectivity to Delhi NCR.

In terms of lifestyle and natural ecosystem. this road is mere minutes, from the Aravali mountains, and some developments like NINE X, are nestled along the backdrop of this mountain range, which provides you great views, peace of mind and fresh air. Most of this area being low density population, with many plots and villa communities like DLF, tata, Unitech, and BPTP are lining up here, this provides for a better living for the select few, who invest here.

The current price trends are

On Golf course extension road, you pay anything between 8000 to 14000 per square feet, for residential properties, and between 16000 to 20000 per square feet for retail spaces.

On Sohna road, you pay anything between 8500 to 13000 per square feet, for residential properties, and between 25000 to 35000 per square feet, for commercial spaces.

On SPR, you pay anything between 4500 to 7000 per square feet, for residential properties, and around 11500 per square feet for retail spaces.

Going ahead, looking at SPR, the property values here will strive to match its neighboring roads. Looking at what you pay for properties along this road, compared to its neighboring roads, and looking at the next 2 to 3 years, some hand picked investments here, will fetch you 100 to 200 percent profits. Conservatively speaking, even if it does not match them, it would come quite close which means great profits for you, if you decide to invest in SPR today.

With over 20 to 25,000 families expected to make this area their home, this is, definitely, the way to invest, and the future of the city lies here, in terms of better return value on investments

A high quality of lifestyle, great views, low density of populations, and great connectivity, all make this road worth the investment, be it for commercial or residential opportunities.

The Southern Peripheral road beckons you ! come, live, work, play, enjoy, and be a part of this great community.

Buy,Sell or Rent shops /retail space /showroom in Gurgaon

Commercial image
Gurgaon is a great business hub and one that has caught on well in consumer spending. Young couples and corporate who have moved to Gurgaon to work and live are more of the modern style of thinking and are spending the bucks. Great buying options sprawl the city and options galore for those who want to live the life. Retail spaces or shops are spread across all areas of Gurgaon.

If you are looking to put in money, options range from a mall to a Vyapar Kendra; it is your call to pick up an investment option, be it MG Road, Sohna Road, Golf Course Road, Golf Course Extension Road, or areas of DLF phase 1,2,3,4 or 5. All areas of Gurgaon have commercial properties and almost all developers have some commercial space to sell.

To buy or rent is a tricky call sometimes and it is best recommended that when in doubt, go for rentals. Once assured, then you can take a call to invest. Buying is a long term decision and when you are moving to a new area it is best to tread carefully. If you are only looking to invest and not actually use the space for commercial purposes, it is best to rent and then take a call on buying. Ready to move in retail properties give you more clarity as the presence of good brands can boost a place and its footfall, and lack of brands or occupancy can hurt you. If not, even though you are a great business, you still need people to be physically presence to know you and do business with you.

There are options to buy retail spaces in various commercial projects. The recommended developer to sell them include Ninex who have delivered Time Centre on Golf Course Road, Essel Tower on MG road and Ninex City Mart on Sohna Road. Of course, there are other ones including Vatika and Bestech who are doing pretty well in terms on rental incomes on their retail spaces. Malls on MG Road are among the premium to sell retail spaces.

Retail spaces are best bought on location advantages and although a Preferred Location Charge can be taken by a builder, it is still much easier to rent out one with a better location than to say the PLC and not be able to rent it out when you need to. So be thoughtful when buying one. What looks good on paper may not be as advertised. Look at surrounding areas and access road on the approved plans to visualize the commercial viability and strength of a commercial entity.

Lastly choose a good real estate agent. An experienced property dealer has the immense knowledge and experience that you are seeking. If you try and save on the broker fees, it may make short term monetary sense but you may get duped or buy a property difficult to dispose off or rent out later. Are you sure you are getting the best rates? Why not ask an experienced realty consultant to get you the details. A good advise, suggestion can make all the difference in realty decisions.

Why Dwarka ExpressWay ?

DE

The city, in terms of real estate, is basically divided into sectors of developments, and the seven strategic expressways, that connect the major parts of the city together, more or less, guide the rate of property evaluations, and would be the way to look ahead, when we talk about what is to come, and what is already completed.

These roads are NH8, M G road, golf Course road, Golf course extension road, Sohna road, Southern Peripheral road and the Dwarka expressway, also called the Northern Peripheral Road.

The Northern Peripheral road, is the expressway, that connects the city, from the bordering Dwarka in Delhi, all the way, to the NH8 is a strategic part of the city. there are around 35 sectors, that line up along this 18 km stretch of the dwarkaa expressway. priced well below the other parts of Gurgaon, this road has many reputed developers, lining up to build along the road. DLF, Ansal, Adani, ramprastha, Kashish, puri, NINE X, Unitech, BPTP, M3M, tata, Space, CHD, tulip, Bestech, Vatika, all have their projects lined up along this road.

The road houses the affordable housing, besides the luxury segment, and includes apartments, villas, plots, floors, besides a range of commercial projects.

In terms of lifestyle and natural ecosystem, there are ample provisions for green area for every authorized project, as stipulated by the government. Most major projects will be self sufficient in terms of club houses, jogging tracks, swimming pools, besides medical and educational facilities. Planned entertainment zones, besides commercial projects, will provide for the needs and entertainment of the residents. Reputed educational and health care organizations are already setting base here.

It would be apt to call this, a city within a city.

The road will provide for a new era in transportation, as it will be twice the width of the present NH8. great views and smooth sailing, will be the key features of this road, as it builds up to be the major artery connecting major places between Delhi and Gurgaon.

From anywhere along this road, once completed, you would be 20 minutes away, from delhi international airport and 10 minutes from NH8, or the southern peripheral road and around 20 minutes to the centre of town. The future will also see the metro coming in, on this road. Till then, the present metro of Delhi, that connects the majority of Delhi NCR and the express metro connecting the airport to the centre of Delhi, is merely 20 minutes away, from anywhere along this road. Connectivity to the centre of the Delhi city, from anywhere here, should be around 45 minutes.

In terms of value, the rates have already gone up, from an average of 2500 per square feet in 2009, to an average of around 6000 per square feet, as of today, and, with the completion of this road, even considering the maximum timelines including delays involved, is not more than 2 years away. We are looking at good appreciation for your money, specially, for some hand picked projects, that are selling at low values today.

A new era in connectivity, chosen quality of lifestyle, great views, and great return on your money, all make this road worth the investment, be it for commercial or residential opportunities. The future of the city is being built as we speak. The Northern Peripheral road beckons you !

Rent, buy or invest in 2 or 3 BHK in Nirvana Country, Unitech

nirvana
Buying, renting or investing into a 2 or 3 BHK or even 1 BHK is a lifetime decision for many who will only buy a house once and for all. The decision is taken no longer on hear say but by a research based on a variety of mediums including the media and the internet. No longer do people just go with their peers. The ego and the will to beat their peers comes in as well with many opting to go for better, as long as something financially viable comes up.
To choose Unitech or Vatika may depend on public opinion in general as well, while a choice of location whether be it Golf Course Road, Sohna Road, MG Road, or Golf Course Extension Road depends on how well the city seems to be shaping up. The vision of Gurgaon needs to be envisioned and that sometimes may or may not happen, while obvious parts like Metro Construction do come in handy for the person looking out. A good society is worth all the investment as it adds to your lifestyle. All said, an apartment will often be valued with the builder reputation, location, amenities, and the surroundings.
Sohna road is only starting to move in terms of residential areas as most areas around are commercial. MG Road though being commercial on the face has many residential complexes that line up behind its commercial complexes and accounts for the elite properties available in Gurgaon in terms of residences. Golf Course Road is one of the premier areas be it commercial or residential properties. It is popular, has malls and commercial complexes, has a new Metro being constructed and looks like a bright future in overall context.
Why one needs to look at Dwarka Expressway is another story by itself and a long run investment could be worth the wait, although not for the not so patient, this area is slowly but surely moving. The roads look better, and the villages are making way for developments; the whole area now looks like a new town being built. A new Gurgaon within Gurgaon, it promises residential and commercial spaces besides public utilities and fun parks.
The residential properties are many and with options of floors and villas, the flat buyer is surely looking for options available. The huge variety of options available in various townships is mind boggling. Nirvana Country for example has floor, villas and apartments and Unitech as its developer gave more than one choice to its buyer in the township. With a varied budget range, you could still live among a vast majority of population with different lifestyles and economic strata.
A rental is not too bad either in terms of choice. A floor community is not too bad when compared to apartment community although the same cannot be said in general terms. There are options of unfurnished, or semi furnished apartments is plenty and the renters are spoilt for choices. Whether you choose Unitech Nirvana Country or any other society, the choices in a buyers’ market are always better than when it is a really good time for the industry and the sellers can demand stuff. Today, it is not so, and the buyer is at an advantage.

Spam mails and DND calls are the other side of Property portals reach

final
A property website is a window of information and resources to the onlooker and interested buyer. A good dealer is always worth lacs if not more depending on your investment. What one looks at when choosing a property often defines how he thinks, and the approach he takes for his investment?
One could be looking at a plot, floor, or apartment and then decide to either go to a property website like Investor Clinic, Prop Tiger, Propertywala, Gurgaon Properties or Godrej properties to see what the value of a place is, what are the good deals on offer and what his take should be when buying the property. There is a source of information and offers, although many are still subtle advertisements garbed by an article, blog or information panel.
There is a huge competition within property sites to be best realty site, or to have the best offers real estate has to offer in Gurgaon and India in general. The advent of these realty sites has opened doors to a new market. Even the small brokers are now on the net. A presence does not hurt if it does not give you the benefits. In the real estate industry, a deal could pay for all your marketing budgets of a few weeks if you are a small real estate broker or property dealer as fondly called. The presence is good as this has opened the doors of choice to a consumer who can’t be fooled so easily into buying a place as he has various sources of information by his side.
Reputed brands like Times Of India and Godrej have jumped in to cash on this trend and the unsuspecting buyer is lured by the wonderful commercials on TV that take him to the site and then the stickiness aspects of the site will always hold you on. Today in this day and age, the features to attract and keep a customer are many, and the net has brought in a new trend although the basic rules are still the same in any real estate deal. Things are not necessarily bought on the internet, but saves time and money for visiting a site, if you could find something about it sooner rather than later.
The rise of property portals has also brought in misery as one is often subjected to bulk mail marketing campaigns, SMS campaigns and one unsuspecting sign up leads to a barrage of information even when one does not want it. The flow of information is constant and cheap, so the portals do not stop. The unsubscribe mail does not always mean what it says and the telecom authority TRAI has not shown to be too serious with ways to stop these marketing calls and SMS campaigns as the DND or the Do Not Disturb system is often bypassed using internet or international numbers which TRAI has no control over.
Each feature or development has two sides to the story and the game of ratio of leads conversion is too tempting to let go off for most marketing firms, now on your net and telephone.

What is Housing Sentiment Index and what it means showing a rise in Quarter 3, 2013?

blog

For those who are new to this term, Housing Sentiment Index (HSI) is jointly developed by Magicbricks and IIM Bangalore. The index is based on a survey conducted online. The respondents are prospective home buyers. The HSI questionnaire captures buyer sentiment on house prices in terms of their own assessment and thinking, the degree to which they think the house prices will move including the micro market level preferences within each city. It contains basic demographic information which includes financing methods and type of property preferred. In short, the HIS captures buyer sentiment and serves as a lead indicator for the residential housing sector. HSI is calculated by taking a difference of positive and negative sentiments and careful adjustments of neutral responses and other biases which creep into any surveys. The value of HSI can range from 0 to 200. But what do the scores actually mean? A score of 100 indicates neutrality, which in reality means the people do not expect house prices to rise or fall. A score of 200 on the other hand would mean that all respondents expect the prices of buying a house to go up, while a score of 0 would mean that all respondents expect house prices to go down.

In such a market, where a normal home buyer would go in to his consultant and ask him this golden question- Will the house prices increase in the coming days or go down, the HSI comes as a valid substantiated sentiment of the market in question. The answers do not have to be correct always, but the answer can always be based on the sentiment the people have in the current scenario, thus making it worthwhile for the buyer, be it an end user or an investor. The markets may not generally follow the trend and may prove wrong, but it is something to go with rather than have nothing at hand to ponder with when taking a major decision of our lives, which are our real estate investments.

32% of the respondents for Q3 were those who already own a house who are looking at owning another property with roughly half wanting to buy it as investment and other half buying it for residential purposes. 53% are presently in a rented accommodation, while 15% live with parents or relatives. 50% of buyers would like to go for financing by a bank while 18% would prefer to sell current assets.

An overall increase in HSI means that the buyer sentiment is rising. An aggregate score of 117 was achieved as HSI for 8 cities surveyed. The last quarter had an HSI of only 93 and thus 117 is very positive for the market. The seller HSI was 156, which was way higher than that of the buyer sentiment. With Noida HSI increasing by 33%, it confirms the market as one with a lower investment range. Gurgaon HSI rose by 22%. Hyderabad was close with 21%.

What lies in the future will soon unfold but the sentiments of buyers increasing is definitely a positive sign of things to come. Real estate can’t be subdued for long, and HSI rise proves it.

Luxury, high end apartments and villas are here. Simplicity is a thing of the past.

luxury
Gurgaon has risen from dirt and dust. If I say this, many won’t believe me, but the truth is not far, as Gurgaon has risen from a sleepy little village cluster to a metropolitan with malls that are envy of the bigger cities like Delhi, or Mumbai. The city has only grown in the last decade. What one saw as a little area coming up because of some call centres and corporate moving in, now has encashed on it’s location by being home to over 700,000 residents, all in a space of around 10 years.
As the city moved ahead, came a time when property market grew and exploded. The investors made good money as customers made a beeline to buy and own a piece of Gurgaon. The societies grew in area and population. The townships grew. The types of properties grew. And then came along ultra luxury and semi luxury high end property within villas, floors, flats and townhouses in Gurgaon. The premier product meant high quality but also a premium cost. The hi end towers as many call it fondly were to cater to the ultra wealthy and the super rich or the just-became-rich-and-want-to-be-spoilt customers.
The luxury flats ad villas offer concierge services, premier clubs, on call doctors and emergency services, private elevators, roof top jogging tracks, huge spaces within and more for someone who knows to spend his money well. The extra cost can change a lifestyle. The extra cost can bring you in contact with a different set of neighbours, and the who’s who of the society.
The luxury is not too far off reach and many want to join in as they do not want to be left behind by their peers. A good life for their loved ones is what we all look at, and if India provides the luxury that was once only possible outside India or in a “foreign country”, well there are takers for the ever growing rich middle class. The location could be the key as many areas are earmarked for such societies in Gurgaon and you do not have to actually mingle with the so called not so rich just-entered-middle class.
Locations like Gwal Pahari along Gurgaon Faridabad Road and the more inwards Golf Course Extension Road attracts many a residents with the luxury offers. The unique selling propositions of many elite projects nowadays is designer rooms which can even include gold plating some of the interiors within your flat. So what if this puts you behind by a few lacs or crores, as they say in Punjabi, “Shok ki keemat nahin hoti”, translated as, “Hobbies, and fondness are invaluable, you cant put a value to it”.
Enter the ultra rich and super rich or the rich professional in amulti national raking in almost a crore or more a year in salary and benefits, the flats and villas in such societies put you apart from a majority of the population and hence are infectious. They make you stand out and high and above everyone else. Think, before you buy, but, as this may have the thorn in the flesh you don’t want. Consult a good real estate agent to give you an insight.

What makes you money in real estate investments? Luck, trends, following crowd or analysis?

Real estate makes money, for many. It always has, will do, and will seldom fail. Unless of course, you are just throwing money around. Chances are, you will stall make money, but will have to wait longer. What constitutes a good profit? What is a good return anyways? Who profits? Who profits the most, rather? An analysis of the past will reveal everyone who was there with a long term plan always made a good profit. How can you do better? Chances are, you believe in luck, trends, or Vastu, or an advise from someone who is respected by you in other areas of expertise.

Luck? Can you depend on it. I was reading a book yesterday and it told me categorically luck is perceivable even it opportunities, network, your goodness, intuition or many more factors just combined to make it for you. Is it luck? Not really, except in rare cases where you find dumbfounded luck.

Follow a crowd? Well, crowd following is good many a times, but this is your hard earned money. Nobody will share your losses or the fast you lost out on an opportunity. Chances are many people feel relieved that a lot more people are involved. That sense of security vanishes if the profits don’t come in as perceived.

Trend? Well, there is a trend. But are you looking for it blindly? Are you on it? Are you missing it? Could you have made more money by getting in or out faster?

Timing is everything ion investments. Time to get in and time to get out! Time to invest and disinvest. A few days here and there sometimes can mean a big difference. A desperate deal often gets you a shower of quick burst money. A good price in an otherwise unknown area gets you a mouth watering deal. How do you manage a deal like this. Chances are that a needle in haystack is often with the person who holds the magnet. The magnet here is the real estate agent. Developers depend on agent and their marketing to sell. Often as a reward, it is the agent who gets a good shot at a desperate deal even from a client who would not have the expertise in finding a buyer in a short span of time.

So then, timing is not everything? It is. Whatever I say in terms of investment is all dependent on timing. Your broker or dealer simply helps you identify it. You are good in your field of expertise, in your job, and work. so is the broker. The dealer or broker is not a person looked upon in India, although outside our country, it is a truly different story. But presentable or not, analyse what he offers you. Then take a call. A simple no is enough for him to stop pursuing you, but a yes from you to a good deals opens many a racks of profit.

Luck is sometimes, whether you believed in the fair chance you got. Luck is not just a probability, it is a calculated probability. That way, you make more and are considered more lucky!

A honest real estate specialist is worth millions even if he himself did not have an opportunity to make the millions you will make from him. After all, your money works for you, to get him, his advise and then investment and disinvestment at the right time does the rest.

Property portals add to your knowledge and choice making, but fail to beat the human touch

confused
The consumer in the realty market today is spoilt for the choices. But it is equally a hard decision to make. When trying to buy, rent or even sell, the deciding rate and the approach was often based on hear say in the conventional years gone by. The day and age has changed today and the consumer is well informed.
The yester years saw property sold via newspaper adverts, and through brokers. With the advent of media and the internet, the marketing has changed it’s face. More and more properties are finding their presence online and even the resale market of ready to move in properties which once was only bought through brokers is finding itself marketed on the net.
No one can replace the magic of newspapers but what has changed is the digital aspect. One can experience a 360 degree view via a digital creation of a property months before the foundation is even laid and years before the possession is given. The photos attract you further as high definition images are used to lure the buyer. Three dimensional (3D) models are common and physical models are digitally converted on the internet to give the same feel or even a better feel of how a place would look like.
Property portals like 99 acres.com, magicbricks.com, makaan.com, indiaproperty.com, housing.com, commonfloor.com, favista.com have all found their share of the market. Developers like Vatika have made beautiful digital videos of their properties like Vatika India Next to ensure the consumers stick on. Be it a plot, floor or flat, the digital version woos its viewer.
With the advent of Magic Bricks, Makaan, India property, Housing, Common Floor, and Favista, one has also witnessed an age of information and knowledge sharing. Price trends of a locality over the years gives the investor a fair view of what happened in the past a least if not the future. The knowledge sharing means more and more people are looking online to get the information rather than speak to peers, neighbours and local agents. The belief in internet is still strong and in the age of disbelief, the internet still rules the roost. One can also go beyond his city to looking for luring deals as one finds a cit particularly growing faster. Investors have jumped the band wagon on this aspect.
The adverts do not always look like adverts and a Public Relations exercise will often mean that the information is passed on to the reader in a more non commercial way. The newspapers also often indulge in public relation exercises but nothing beats the net. Be it social media, blogs, adverts or articles in sites, the information is there to see and a good search engine optimizer will often get you viewed.
Nothing though replaces a good property dealer. What is often advertised more is often one that requires more selling. A good real estate broker will tell you what to expect, what has gone wrong, and what can go wrong, and compare the projects in a more humane way compared to an internet site that sells it subtly without you knowing it.

Dwarka ExpressWay

With Dwarka expressway moving in the right direction and construction of the road catching up fast, it is a matter of time, when thousands of families will move to the projects being built alongside the road. also known as Northern Peripheral Road, Dwarka ExpressWay is the next big thing of Gurgaon.

2 bhk,3 bhk bedroom flats in gurgaon

2 bhk 3 bhk
If you are looking to buy a house, there are many things that cross your mind. A decision to buy a 2 or 3 or 1 BHK depending on your budget and needs may decide your lifestyle and value for investment in the years to come.

Many developers are now focusing on 3 BHK in Gurgaon and 2 BHK kind of minimized as need for them lowered with people looking for more space and the good economics of the city we live in- Gurgaon. Young professional flocked to these developments, invested in them and based many loans on aspirations of growing careers and a good investment. Loan capability for everyone increases by the year and that crossed many a minds.

A good society or a live alone unit, is the golden question that haunts many. A good society is in fashion and many young professionals are going for that option. The chance to live and celebrate within the society is something we all forgot over time as joint families turned to nuclear ones. More and more people had less and less time to indulge in lifestyles we all grew up with. The era of societies has brought that time back. Young and old enjoy within their society compounds. Security, power and water back-ups, good maintenances have lured many to the enclosed societies and yes, the old times are back with a bang.

Nirvana Country is a prime example of this to happen. The Close North, a premier society within Nirvana Country was rated one among 10 best in Gurgaon based on lifestyle, maintenance and security by an independent agency survey in 2013. The fact that little toddlers can play in the park in a secure environment, as many teenagers roller skate around and adults socialize alongside with their physical activities like Yoga and walks, has led many to think hard of being part of such a society. Sushant Lok is another secure society that has a great environment within. DLF societies are also way ahead in their community programs and being the first ones to bring a community culture like environment, DLF has led the way many times.

Even if you are not going to buy, but are looking to invest, it still remain a good option as it is easier to rent out. Renting within such compounds gives families the extra social touch even if one partner is busier than the other. Many owners offer the option of semi furnished units. The options to socialize are many and the extra rent is only an investment that helps people be a part of such a society. You can choose to rent outside societies as well, but you have to deal with inefficient or minimal security and start a life as afresh as any other. A society gives you a base to blend in with readymade facilities like clubs and parks besides amphitheatres and the premier ones go a step ahead with facilities like Golf within the compounds.

Hence, choose wisely, rent or buy, you are investing into a lifestyle. A good decision only helps you enjoy the extra bit.

Value of a good property dealer in Gurgaon

property dealer
Buying, selling or even renting property is a task in itself. Looking at the minutest of details is something that takes time, patience and effort to research. What one finds on paper may not always come true in the same sense in reality and disclaimers are put on property sites for the same matter. A ready to move in property is comparatively easier as you can judge the property and its surroundings in real time, compared to a new launched project or an under construction one.
One often thinks, it is best to avoid real estate consultants or brokers or property dealers as they are often called. Well, the answer is yes and no. It depends on your experience to go solo without support and do all the running around and verifications yourself. Even then, things may skip your mind and a deal is easier said than done. Being a buyer or seller you still might deal with a property dealer at the other end of the table. Being who they are and what they know, they are important elements to successful and profitable deals.
Would you save 1 Percent commission and take a risk and go for a property without sound advice? Is merely going through property portals like Magic Bricks and 99 Acres enough? Are you aware? Are your questions answered? Does subtle information on a site look like an article when it actually is a public relations exercise or advertisement in the garb of article? What would make you go and seek advice? Well, these are questions you need to ponder on before you go solo. Nobody is saying you can’t but a small piece of information from an agent may prove really valuable to you and help you save lacs or help you make the right decision.
A real estate consultant was and is doing this as business for years. He knows and holds valuable information. You might actually end up in profits even after paying him and have a hassle free transaction. Do check the credentials of a broker and his license to operate before you step into a deal. And then be rest assured. Ask questions at every end so you can be assured no one taking you for granted but hire a property dealer.
Gurgaon has thousands of projects. Some are new launches, some under construction and some ready to move in. Choose wisely. Take budget, location, developer, buyer, seller, vision and plan of the government all in consideration before you say yes.
List your property with capitaltree.in of you are willing to sell or rent out your property and we will market it for you on various marketing platforms.

ggn

Cities are often ranked, in terms of their lifestyles they offer, activities on board, quality of malls, hotels and restaurants, besides the quality of infrastructure, schools, and other educational institutes, and it’s medical facilities.

This city has it all. No wonder, it ranks amongst the highest, in quality of life among Indian cities.

The city, owing to a stable law, and order set-up, coupled with peaceful environments, has managed to attract several multi national companies, foreign investors, non resident Indians, and large business houses. more than half of the Fortune 500 companies have made this city their home. Once called the call centre capital of the world, it is one of the biggest places for I T enabled services in India.

From luxury housing complexes, food parks, and express highways, to Special Economic zones, the city perfectly epitomizes the massive developing nature of India’s economy.

International curriculum schools, have provided unprecedented facilities to its students. World class hospitals are present here, and the city already boasts of its own metro, besides the Delhi metro that is connected well to it.

The city, has its fair share of golf parks, amusement parks, cultural centres, besides the fresh breeze of the bordering Aravali mountain range, that breathes life into the ecosystem. It’s closeness to Delhi and the international airport is an added attraction.

With the best developers, lining up to offer international standards, including the luxury segment and hotel managed properties, this city is following international trends, and designs, and boasts of the who’s who of India. be it villas, apartments, floors, or individual houses, the city spoils you with choice of plenty. Many of the Housing societies are mini cities in themselves, and host world class club facilities, play areas, jogging tracks, amphitheaters, medical and educational facilities and more…

the popular roads like M G road and Golf course road, besides the NH8 already house a large population of residents and corporates. The upcoming Golf Course extension road, which will see infrastructure completing within a couple of years, boasts of the ultra luxury segment, while the upcoming Southern Peripheral road, that connects golf course extension road to NH8, is the next in line, lucrative, and, according to us, some of the hand picked projects here, on the southern peripheral road, will pay the highest returns even in the short term of an year, while the Dwarka expressway, also called the northern peripheral road, had already seen the majority of completion in infrastructure, and will provide good returns in the medium term, of say 3 to 6 years.

The city has been popular with investors in the last decade, and provided massive returns on investment, and property values. conservatively speaking, even if the city doesn’t grow as in the past, and the buyer sentiment remains low, we will still see it providing much better returns, and with it, a quality of lifestyle, that surpasses any other in India.

The city beckons you !

We help you choose your residence in Gurgaon

house

The concept of a home and what it should be changes with generations and now with modern architecture and modern amenities, a home is definitely more than four walls and a ceiling. A home is a place to come back to, to experience luxury and relaxation. A home is the way we want to lead our lives in. The concept of just sitting together on a dinner table is fading fast as, as modern families venture into activities together, be it within their home or within the society. A lap of swim, an hour at the gym, a time slot for sauna, a game of pool, tennis or squash, a game of cars in the club next door are some activities the modern couple engages in along with their children. An apartment, in short, now is expected to provide facilities of a hotel. To get this going, came in a concept of what we fondly called serviced apartments. Gurgaon obviously being the cosmopolitan of towns in India rushed to get this in. A serviced apartment offers Valet, Concierge, Housekeeping, even attached restaurants and Bar Be Que areas, along with a fully furnished setting. The family just moves in and lives on. The concept caught on fast and for many young couples, this was the life they were seeking. The concept was readily offered by developers and many a investors cashed in. Although the system is yet to get popular attention, the concept has caught the eyes of the major few. Luxury of an hotel at home and cometh the ego boosters. Gurgaon otherwise has normal apartments and flats that have come up all over the place, and each area of Gurgaon be it Gurgaon Faridabad Road, MG Road, Sohna Road, Golf Course Road, Golf Course Extension Road, or the Dwarka Expressway have all found their areas of achievements. As HUDA planned and mapped Gurgaon 2031, the plans did not surprise many. The demand is known, the supply is forthcoming and investors always find a way to get in. The end users with the commerce of Gurgaon growing were not in dearth either and societies filled up fast. The hot spots kept changing but lucrative offers were always in plenty. Buy, sell, rent or invest – there is a lot to catch up on. There is always a time to buy specially when the chips are down for most and sellers cant find buyers, step in and make the most of it. When the chips are high and the market is going strong, join the bandwagon. When the market is somewhere in between tread slowly but invest for sure. What you make and how much you make will vary, but “will make” for sure. No one loses money in Indian real estate at least that is the thought we have grown up with. Vision and know what’s in the plan, and you are ready to make the most of your buck. Choose a flat or a serviced apartment, but have something to own.
