Developed Area Vs Developing Area for Real Estate Investment

real estate developer gurgaon

What would you have chosen – a developing neighbourhood or a developed neighbourhood? Of course, it is a developed neighbourhood!

Whenever you start searching for your dream home, you look for the proximity to the road, metro, rail and air connectivity. A developing neighbourhood may lack all these but a developed neighbourhood already has all these facilities.

Sohna Road in Gurgaon is one such place, which is a home to some of the most elite housing projects, corporate parks and educational institutions. It is approximately around 7-8 km from the DLF Cyber Hub and 14 km from Delhi International Airport.

The nearest metro station is Huda City Centre, which directly connects to Delhi, Noida, Faridabad and Ghaziabad. In near future, it has been also proposed that there will be an extension in metro connectivity from IFFCO Chowk to Manesar IMT via Sohna Road. The discussions are still underway for extending the metro line and connecting it to Jaipur, Rajasthan, but it is quite early to quote this development.

The proposed ISBT Gurgaon is 10 minutes’ drive from Sohna Road. Some parts of Gurgaon are still inhabited by the locals making it difficult for expats to lead the way of living they choose to. While some parts are influenced by local residents and are in denial for development, other parts are extremely developed and posh to look for affordable houses in these areas.

Sohna Road and Southern Peripheral Road offer a value proposition where the cost of living is low but equally promises to provide a lavish comfortable life and connectivity to the rest of the city.

In the midst of all these, Ocean Seven Buildtech came up with its affordable housing segment that is OSB Golf Heights in Sector 69, Gurgaon. Here the real estate developer aims to provide a comfortable lifestyle at a reasonable price.

Best affordable housing project OSB Golf Heights is surrounded with many renowned housing projects such as Tulip Lemon, Spaze Corporate Group, etc. which are already constructed and families and corporate have started operating from these places. This project is outlined in 5 acres of vast land with 2 iconic and 3 regular towers. These units have an attractive design and are going to have 158 1BHK and 628 of 2 BHK.

The expected date of delivery of these homes are set to 4 years from the date of launch i.e. in 2022. There are two entries for this project. One is 24-metre-wide road and the other is a 60-meter-wide road from the west side of the project. It is 1 km far from Sohna Road keeping you away from the daily honking of air-polluting traffic and providing the resident with a peaceful stay.

Also, not to miss the really important thing for the families. That is a good educational institution for their kids at the safe and close vicinity.

This locality has two very renowned schools such as Indus World School and The Vivekanand School. These schools impart very good standard of education and many existing residents of this area have already their ward in these schools.

With all the facilities in just a stone throw distance, what else would an individual look for in a residential project, is it developing or developed!

Confused to Choose Between A Builder Floor and A Multi-storey Apartment?

Builder Floor and Multi-storey Apartment

With a plethora of real estate property options available in the market today, young home buyers are spoilt for choice. Real estate investment is attracting a major pool of millennial to invest in the properties. But where to invest in?

Affordable housing projects, premium and luxe villas, multi-storey apartments or a builder’s floor? All these options can put you in a great pandemonium. In this customer driven industry, real estate developers are closely monitoring the needs and demands of the customers so that they can fulfil their demands.

A report published in one of India’s leading newspapers “The Hindu” states that about 60% of first time home buyers prefer multi-storey apartments over an independent builder floor. To understand the whole scenarios, we have to go step by step. Let us discuss these 2 types of properties individually.

What is a Builder Floor?

A builder floor apartments are generally referred to low-rise buildings with 2-4 floors and each floor has provision for an independent dwelling unit. This provision overtakes the requirement for independent villas or bungalows.

An individual residing in a builder floor gets a lot of privacy and the real estate property is regarded as a luxury. But there are a few problems and risks associated with builder floor. You get to live a premium society but the high maintenance charge has to be managed by the home owner.

The real estate developer will not be paying for the maintenance. Apart from that shared and common amenities will be missing in such residential complexes. Carry out an extensive research and thorough planning before you invest in a builder apartment.

What is a Multi-Storey Apartment?

A multi-Storey apartment is the typical residential apartment that we usually come across. One floor can be shared by 2 families or so. The best part of this apartment is that it is affordable. After PMAY initiative, many reputed real estate developers have started their projects under affordable housing scheme.

OSB Group is known for delivering high-quality affordable housing projects across the country and has recently launched OSB Golf Heights in Sector 69 Gurgaon which is the best affordable housing in Gurgaon.

Multi-storey apartments have many advantages such as availability of a lot of essential amenities, conveniences for the ease of the residents. Millennials prefer a gated community life and that’s what is provided in multi-storey apartments.

If you have to choose between these two options, a multi-storey apartment should be the one on any given day due to all the facilities that come along with the home. Builder floors are often a middle path followed by individuals who find villas and bungalows expensive and who doesn’t want to live in tall buildings.

But multi-storey apartments are quite feasible in the real estate market of Gurgaon, Mumbai, Chennai, Bengaluru, etc., In addition to this, if you choose to go with a multi-storey apartment, you will find a large number of options to choose from. And apartments have always more chances of a resale as compared to a builder’s floor.

The falling rupees paved a way to boom in realty Sales

 Reasons For NRIs To Invest In Indian Real Estate

The rupee has been rolled down by 6.20% in last three months. This depreciation in rupee against the currencies like UAE Dhiram, Dollar, and Pounds is pulling in large investments in the Indian real estate segment. The builders are also developing world-class projects with state-of-art amenities to attract the foreign investors. Bengaluru, Kochi, Pune, Chandigarh and Chennai top the chart as the cities where NRIs typically prefer to invest.

Indian real estate sector has always attracted the investors across the globe and with the new regulatory environment, the home buyers have regained the confidence to invest in the NRI centric projects.

The transparency in the real estate with RERA 2016 (Regulation & Development) Act, 2016, Goods & Services Tax (GST) and strict implementation of Benami Properties Act with amendments has aroused the interest of NRIs in the segment.

In year 2012, the property sales contributed by the NRI segment surged at 25% from usual 10% as the rupee witnessed a downfall by 17.37% between February to July during the same time. It has been considerable observed that whenever rupee experiences a steep depreciation against various currencies, the contribution of NRI investors in Indian Realty spikes.

Various reforms introduced to the real estate sector in last two years leads to slow down in sales but with the constant fall in Indian currency have allured the NRI buyers to invest.

The year is expect to witness the same swing as it experienced in year 2012. Property prices observing a low by 10% to 15% together with currency devaluation adding another plunge by 10% to 15% makes the real estate segment a lucrative proposition to invest.
