    Amazing how distance is defined as a measure of time these days! What exactly does ’30 minutes drive from Madhya Kailash’ mean? It takes 30 minutes to reach Taramani signal from Madhya Kailash in the peak hours!!!

    Choose the right property

    The correction in property market might be encouraging many to think of investing, but a careful consideration may be necessary, warns SRIKALA BHASHYAM

    Till 2008, volatility was something associated largely with equity markets. However, property has joined this club and as you would have noticed, prices have begun their downward journey after galloping during early 2008. While the fall was associated with general downtrend and excess supply in the property segment, there has been a reversal in the latter. There has been a fall of 15-20 per cent in property prices across the country and in some cities and locations, it has been higher. Expectedly, this has prompted many to think of property as an investment. While any time is good time for own living, investors need to be extra cautious when it comes to looking at property as an investment option. Even those looking for property for own use, need to be cautious as wrong choice of property can cause a higher damage.

    Here are some tips which could help them in choosing the right property.

    Closer to completion

    If a flat is your choice then go for one which is closer to completion. The liquidity crunch in the financial system has changed the finance profile of many developers and there are few out in the market who have the potential to run long race. Hence, rather than looking for property which is likely to get completed over the next 2-3 years, sign up for a property which is ready or almost ready for occupancy. Not will it solve the problems of uncertainty (of completion of project) but will also give you the tax benefit on your home loans.

    Look for legality of the project

    The recent developments in the corporate sector have been disturbing for all of us but unfortunately, this is the time for all us to take notice of corporate governance. Besides checking the veracity of your builder or developer, make sure that the property you choose for your living/investments is legally sound. During euphoric days, many have thrown caution to the wind and buyers have ended up with properties which have been sold to multiple owners. Instances such as builders constructing additional floors without proper permission from government agencies were far too many and in some cases, such projects were even sanctioned by lenders. Hence, ensure that your property is approved by necessary government agencies as this can insulate from loss of property if such a situation were to arise.

    Potential for appreciation

    There has been a growing consensus regarding the capital appreciation prospects of properties on the outskirts of cities with major cities in India getting choked in central business districts. While CBD areas offer better potential for commercial rentals, the rate of appreciation is always faster in newer areas when compared to traditional older areas. With the life of the property typically ranging from 50-60 years, investments will have to be made keeping in mind the age factor too.

    As rigtly pointed out in the article, one shd lookout for a property which will be completed within a shrt span (in months)..otherwise, one may end up in paying huge EMIs & finally the refund! after huge mentel agony..

  4. Jim

    One should visit the site before making a decision, many of my friends just booked in DLF without seeing the site..when i trivelled to the place, i just returned back in the middle of the way as i found that its rather a insecure place & not worth fr the money..Guys pls tnk bfore investing…pls visit the site & chek if the claims are true – especially check if they would be able to complete the claimed project as per schedule!

    How far is the location from Taramani? How far is it from OMR road? Any weblink to the project details? Thanks in advance

  13. Hi Guys, has anyone given a try for CASA GRANDE RIVIERA which is on Velachery tambaram main road it is just opposite to well known community Jaya chandran Nagar., I came to know their price is 3100 Rs per sq ft.

    They are providing all amenties like party hall, gym, guest bed rooms, swimming pool, creche etc…..

    Existing road is 60 feet and it will be developed as a 200 ft road.

    This apartment is coming on 4.4 acre land and no of flats are 220 and all are almost 3 bed room.

    When it is compared with Raj Paris or Purva it is not so interior and no need to travel thru narrow and slum roads , it is just on main road and next to petrol bunk.

    I am planning to consider this project to book a 3 bed room flat.

    Please let me know pros and cons of this project. I will be very happy to see Ur comments which will give me a opportunity to know more about this project and truths about this project

    Buyers treading cautiously

    They want a fair deal and keen to know factors such as carpet area, payment terms and levy, writes SHANTHI KANNAN


    Keep their eyes open: Buyers are getting more calculative now and are concerned about progress of construction.

    The reality sector in general and housing market in particular had a dream run in the last few years. Increase in salary levels and easy availability of credit helped the turn around. The average age of home mortgage consumer dropped from late thirties to late twentiesWith the IT sector on the rise, investment in the real estate also increased. Apartment sizes, specifications, delivery terms and price band were matched with the boom. But the current economic slowdown has changed the scenario significantly and has forced the home buyers and developers to re-orient their strategies.

    New offers

    N. Ananthanarayanan, Head REIS, Jones Lang LaSalle Meghraj, says that the buyers are now getting calculative and wants to probe factors such as falling prices of cement and steel, construction cost and reduction in service tax and wants to know how these are reflected in the new offers.

    Mr. Ananthanarayanan says buyers are also now examining the actual carpet area that they get in comparison to the area that they pay for. He also points out that today, the buyers are looking at the terms of payment and penalties carefully and wants a fair deal. They ask for compensation for any delay in delivery of the completed apartment commensurate with the loss of income or the rent.

    Some have even started demanding that payments be linked to the construction stage, and not make it time bound, as they want cash flow to reflect progress of construction. These demands are strengthened by the perception that they may get better bargains in the days to come. The fact that leading builders including DLF have continuously come out with price reductions has strengthened this, says V. Kalyanaraman, Director, Yeskay Promag Consultancy Pvt Ltd.

    With the interest rates starting to come, many prospective buyers feel that it would be worthwhile to re-plan their purchases and wait for a better rate.

    Awareness growing

    Consumers’ awareness about the developing scenario has increased in recent times and it has become important for the developers to keep the buyers informed. For example in the DLF case, about 150 consumers decided to quit the project as they were not kept updated on development of the progress. The questions raised by them were – will the project be delivered on time, what is the operational model of the club house, practice of selling undivided share of land, comparing prices between DLF’s two projects, funding position and operating cost of the company.

    With all these demands coming from the end consumers, DLF needed to rework their approach. They addressed their buyers and explained the situation.

    Many big developers, who started constructing mega projects, have begun to scale down and re-design them. They are entering budget housing projects such as one or two-bedroom apartments. The risk is spread by cutting down the unit size.

    Plans to construct three to five mega towers are now scaled down and in their place only one or two towers are built. The customers are also re-located within the same development, so that the required built up area could be completed within the committed deadlines, says Mr. Kalyanaraman.

    Huge gap

    There is a huge gap between the expectations of the buyer and the builder. Today the buyer expects the prices to slide further and is in no hurry to close the transaction. On the other hand builder faces a challenge with their cash flow affected. “Knowing that the demand is still high builders will have to focus on completing projects as buyers will immediately lap up projects that are ready for immediate consumption as long as they are within their affordability”, says R. Balaji, Chief Executive Officer, Propmart.

    The bankers too are playing a cautious role. The delay in completing the projects and drop in salary levels concerns them. The financial instutions, who went overboard, are slowing down and exploring new products such as financing second hand apartments.The three factors – customers, developers and bankers, taking a cautious step has only led to a slow down in the residential sector growth. Everyone agrees that the market will bounce back as there is a real latent demand. The key to this is “affordability.”

    Marg Pushpadrama-30 minutes from Madhya Kailash is building from 2009 .Still the construction is not completed .They have very bad relationship between the customer care and project team .Both will never met together .We will get different commitment from different teams inside the marg and you will not see anything happening on time.
