Is it the Right Time to Buy Property- Gaurav Gupta, Director, SG Estates Ltd.

It has been more than 2 months since our Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi announced demonetization on 8th November 2016. Amongst the various things and debates about its benefit, Real Estate buyer is coming to be the true winner.

As mentioned in my last article that cost of funds will go down drastically after banks being flushed with funds, we are seeing it actually happening.

The rates have come down to extent of 8.35%, irrespective of the tenure and amount.  Bank of Baroda has gone a step ahead and made the rate linked with the credit score of the home buyer.  This is the best way of rewarding the person who is maintaining the financial discipline.

All the major Housing Loan players like SBI, ICICI, IDBI, HDFC etc have reduced their rate of interest for the Home Loans.  

Not only the EMI will be reduced for the buyers but also their eligibility will increase.
After lull of 2 months, Developers are again back with attractive offers for the home buyers and buyers are again scouting the best deal in the market. The conducive atmosphere is in place where buyers are now feeling confident to go ahead and take the buying decision.

The various doubts of heavy price correction in primary market are also cleared to an extent.
It is no doubt that nearing completion or Ready to Move properties are the first preference of the buyers and there are less takers for projects which are at just start level.

I can say confidently that It is the RIGHT TIME TO BUY AN HOUSE. The value a customer will get now may not get in immediate future as nearing possession or ready to move inventory is getting absorbed and new launches are very few.  
Indian Real Estate is moving towards more maturity with RERA now a reality and prelaunches the thing of the past.
Happy Buying for the Home Buyers.

Demonetisation and its Impact on Real Estate: Gaurav Gupta, Director, SG Estates Ltd.

Demonetisation by our Prime Minister Narendra Modi is one of the boldest decisions taken by Independent India in Last 69 years. This decision will play a crucial role in India’s growth and development in the years to come.

Among the various positives and negatives of Demonetisation, various news articles and reports by experts have emerged that Real Estate will see a massive price correction and people must wait to buy before the price correction occurs.

It is wrong to consider the entire Indian Real Estate as one. Indian Real Estate has various classifications like affordable or luxury; authorized or unauthorized; primary market or secondary market; tier 1 or tier 2 or tier 3 cities; agriculture land or urban land; end user market or investor market etc.
It is important to consider certain facts before accepting or rejecting something on the face of it.

In primary market (where buyer buys directly from the builder or colonizer or authority), mostly the purchasers are end users who are buying property to make it their home or as an asset class to hold it for long term. This holds true in todays scenario because investors are absent from market since almost 3 years due to market being stable.

End user market is growing on back of Home Loans availability. Buyers pay 10-20% margin money and take the balance Home Loan to fund their purchase.
Due to Demonetisation banks are expected to get deposits of approx. 10 Lacs Crore as per the estimate of the Government and with this kind of liquidity and cost of funds going down for the banks, the rate of interest of Housing Loan will most probably go down. This will not only result in lower EMI but also increased Loan Eligibility for an actual Home Purchaser.
From the past experience when the Home Loan rate of Interest was in range of 7.5-8%, the Indian Real Estate had seen the maximum growth and boom.
Banks have already reduced their deposit rates.
Hence we can infer that with demonetisation and banks reducing their rate of Interest, primary real estate market will in most probability  grow and demand will increase in end user driven markets.

This hold more true for affordable home segment market for areas like Raj Nagar Extn. Ghaziabad, Noida Extn., Bhiwadi, Faridabad where home purchasers are mostly the first time purchasers and property cost is below 50 lacs.

Already the government rules did not permit to take cash more than Rs.20,000=00 in the property transaction. Hence the cash component was almost negligible in the primary affordable home segments.

Demonetisation will definitely impact unauthorized construction, secondary market sales where some component of cash might be present and with less cash liquidity in hand, they will also move towards complete cashless mechanism.

Real Estate industry contributes more than 7% to India’s GDP and supports more than 360 ancillary industries and is the second largest employer after agriculture in India.

In the longer run, we will have more tax payers and increased tax revenue for the government which might result in lower taxation as a whole.

All the developed economies in the world are cashless economies and day is not far when India will be counted amongst the Developed Countries.

What makes Vasundhara a preferred Housing Destination: Gaurav Gupta, Director, SG Estates Ltd.

Vasundhara is a sub city planned by UP Aavas and Vikas Parishad and it is surrounded by colonies developed by GDA like Vaishali, Kaushambi and Indirapuram.

Unlike areas developed by GDA, Vasundhara has wide roads, more concentration on plotted development and few Multistoried Group Housing Apartments. It has fully developed infrastructure like Sewerage, drainage system, electricity substations, water lines etc. It has provision of direct Ganga Water Supply.

Vasundhara being part of Ghaziabad has multiple connectivity options with Delhi. Nearest Metro station is Vaishali Metro Station, which is at a distance of 500 meters from Sector 19. It is at a few minutes distance away from Noida, another buzzing town of Uttar Pradesh. Work has also started on extension of Dilshad  Garden Metro line to New Bus Stand in Ghaziabad which will also provide connectivity to one more Metro line to Vasundhara Residents.

Many reputed schools like Jaipuria, DPS, Amity, Amity International, Springfield Schools are in Vasundhara and various local shopping markets are fully developed.  Medical Facilities like nursing homes, hospitals and labs are operational in Vasundhara and there are also various entertainment hubs.

Density of population in Vasundhara is controlled and it is not densely populated due to more of plotted development than Group Housing Apartments.


Vasundhara is also reasonably priced than Kaushambi, Vaishali, and Indirapuram.
For example in the projects developed by SG Estates Ltd., 2 BHK is priced at approximately 45 Lacs in SG Oasis in sector 2B Vasundhara and around 55 Lacs in SG Homes in sector 3 Vasundhara. The price for similar flat in Indirapuram is around 60-65 lacs.

SG Oasis in under construction and possession in expected in 2 years whereas SG Homes is ready to move in in Phase 1 and Phase 2 will be delivered in 2 months time.

In addition to various residential options Vasundhara also has various retail and office Towers in the price range of 6000-7500 per sq.

List of the top myths about Real Estate and how to debunk them

We all want to live our dreams. Owning a home is one of the biggest dreams for each one of us. We may agree with the social norms or might have broken away from them, yet we all need a roof over our heads, a space which we can call our own, a space where we can keep our family happy and safe. Real Estate offers means to fulfil our dreams. However, whenever we talk Real Estate, we have people talking about their experiences, some good and some not so good. This does create doubts in the minds of a new home buyer, however, the myths and apprehensions surrounding Real Estate should not stop anyone from fulfilling their dream of buying a new home.

The most common myth

YOU NEED A LOT OF SAVINGS TO BUY A NEW HOME! Well, the amount of competition in Real Estate in India has lead to creation of homes catering to each segment of the society. Also, the pricing too has become highly competitive. No developer would like to lose a customer. They have invested huge amounts and are eager to earn profits for themselves as well as their investors. In today’s competitive market, developers have tied-up with banks and have come up with attractive payment schemes. Some will offer to buy a home by paying only 10%-15% of the cost of a home and paying the rest only on possession.

Along with that, the easy loan disbursement policy of various banks will help you to find the necessary funds as well as save on taxes. With most of the developers showcasing their products online, you can compare all the available properties fulfilling your requirements and even compare loan products online.

Buying a home is a HIGH RISK investment!

Nothing can be further from the truth. Any type of investment, shares,bonds,mutual funds, bank deposits, each have their own risks associated with them. Nothing comes risk free. You can only remain informed about the risks involved and use caution to invest your money wisely. Real Estate investment is rather low risk investment that has allowed people to gain profits. The stakes are always high in real estate but with an unmatched assurity of return.

Locality

The other deterrent for most home buyers is the locality of an upcoming project. If it is situated in the suburbs, most people feel that the area might remain underdeveloped or inaccessible. The development of the adjoining cities, especially in NCR have broken this myth. Cities like Noida and Gurgaon have led by example on developing planned cities in India. The other glaring truth is that the developed cities do not have room for further development.

Malls, office spaces and recreational areas need space, which currently the suburbs offer to the developers. The housing societies not only offer residential homes but also develop a complete city with schools, hospitals, markets and malls, to cater to the requirements of the residents. Moreover, with stringent government laws, developers today are more focussed on developing green buildings that provide a holistic lifestyle.

For now we are focussing only on these two main aspects, if you have any other queries or apprehensions, write to us at info@sgestates.in . We will be more than happy to help you find the right home.

Home, a space of our dreams!

Home. The word evokes memories and aspirations for each one of us. The warmth and joy we experienced as children, thanks to our parents, is something we want to create for our loved ones, our family when we outgrow our childhood and are on the other side of the fence. Buying a home is one of the biggest dream for each one of us, a nest where we rest and immerse ourselves in the myriad of voices of our off-springs and our elders.

We all have a certain picture of a perfect home in our minds. Though we may or may not find an exact replica of what we have in our minds, we do know what we want in a house of our dreams. The most important aspect in a home is space. Next is how that space has been designed and the amenities it offers to its residents. Few guidelines to be kept in mind before buying your dream home;

How big should a house be?

The space that we need to live happily is dictated by our needs and our aspiration. We all want to live in a spacious home; however space comes at a premium. We have to find a balance between the two. Size of a family is obviously a deciding factor. It also depends whether it is a young family or a family of adults, depending on which it is good to think how will the family’s requirement of space will change in the following years. If you are a big family, it makes sense to go for a bigger house. However, the important thing to keep in mind is the built-up area and the carpet area. What are the costs involved? At SG Estates we have created homes to suit every need and with affordable payment schemes.

Important features of a Home

Location is the most important. Depending on the members in a family, each family has its own needs. Is the place well connected to other areas of the city? How far is it from the workplace? Are there schools in the vicinity? Are healthcare facilities readily available? Is there enough greenery and open space available for children to play? The most important factor is the safety for the residents. Rajnagar Extn. Is the largest green belt of NCR, a planned city that has all the features required suiting a modern lifestyle.

Natural light and ventilation are of utmost importance for a healthy living. We at SG Estates have created homes that receive ample of sunlight throughout the day. Homes are well ventilated allowing for a healthy living at affordable costs.

Next, to be considered are the aesthetics and the materials used in a home. We at SG Estates have ensured and created homes that are aesthetically beautiful without compromising on the utility and the quality of the homes.

SG Estates offers both affordability and luxury. Visit our website www.sgestates.in for detailed information on our completed and ongoing projects.

SG Grand: Residential Group Housing Project in Raj Nagar Extn.,affordable yet offers fulfilling HOME options

Modern living has its own challenges. The growing population has created an increased demand in housing and real estate. The awareness of our current environmental situation has forced us to create residential societies which make optimal use of space and are environmental friendly.

Planned open spaces with landscaping ensure space available for leisure and relaxation. SG Grand has 70% of open area.
We have planned our residential buildings on the principles of ancient science of vaastu. Buildings that are not blocked rather are built to ensure maximum flow of natural elements for a harmonious living. Landscaped gardens dotted with flower beds create a refreshing ambience. Rajnagar extension has one of the largest green belt situated alongside riven Hindon.

Connectivity -

The need to be well connected to other parts of the city and adjoining areas is of utmost importance and is an important factor influencing buyers of a new home. Situated on NH-58, Raj Nagar Extn. is well connected. The proposed signal free elevated road from UP Gate to Raj Nagar Extn., will make the are area 8-10 minutes away from Delhi The area is easily accessible from Delhi, Vasundhra, Indirapuram, Vaishali, Noida, Greater Noida and Meerut.

This festive season get a step closer to your dream home with SG Estates

It has been years of service. Years of working day and night, saving each and every penny, cutting out on dinner parties and many more luxuries that would lure any ordinary man on earth at least once. All the effort so that one day you could step into your dream home. And bask in the glory of all the hard work you ever did throughout your life. Well, there couldn’t have been a more auspicious time to move into your dream home than the festive month of Dussehra and Diwali. But have you really thought about what allcomforts your dream home would boast of? Let’s see if it covers every point in this checklist.
  • Multi-bedroom: Just try to remember your early days of struggle-right from your bachelor days to considering raising a family. The days when you had to share one room with 2 or 3 strangers. Then finally moving to a bigger home when you decided to settle. But with all rooms being occupied by either relatives or children. And even your bedroom being converted into a store room. Gone are those nightmarish days, as you can now purchase a house with as many bedrooms you want at affordable rates fromSG Estates.
  • Open, green surroundings: Your dream home is surely located amidst natural surroundings, ain’t it? Did I hear ‘never thought about that’? That’s sad. Can’t blame you-after all during your years of struggle, while being sandwiched between stoned walls, smoke and dust, you were badly deprived of nature. Worry not! SG Estate’s recently launched projects in Rajnagar Extension and Vasundhara promise you lot of greenery and natural oxygen which would even compensate for all the suffering you had to bear due to the lack of it.
  • Connectivity: Have to rush to the airport? Getting late for your exam at school? No need to call the cab service. The metro station is just a stone’s throw away-from all of SG Estate’s residential projects. Your home would act as a node in a huge network, well connected with all kinds of public transport to each and every part of Delhi, even the outskirts. So travel to any part of Delhi or NCR-NoidaGhaziabad or Gurgaon-without smoking your car’s engine; while opting for eco friendly transportation and reaching your destination in time. Read more about our compassion towards nature and alike in our CSR initiative.
  • Proximity to infrastructure: Hospital. Parks. Hotels. Club. Garden. Gym. You name it, and we have it around. And even if there are other things you cannot within the society, everything is available within walking distance. That’s how well we have planned out our locations.
  • Security and safety: All our residential complexes contain multiple security facilities, such as well-gated boundaries, 24-hour manual and automated security at the gate and within the society. Plus, safety systems to protect you from accidents and unprecedented disasters.
Well that is just a small impression of the amazingly vast number of facilities we provide each of our residents with. Plus, we have tempting offers for your dream home this festive season. And what’s more? Our festival offers don’t end right after Diwali.
They will carry on for close to a month after Diwali as well, something you’d rarely experience with all builders. And festival or no festival, our hospitality and customer services are available for you 24X7, 365 days of the year. Get in touch with any of our representatives any time you feel like picking up the phone or visiting our office. And make sure you have a look at the Reviews and Complaints sections, so that you enjoy the highest levels of transparency from us as well as other society members.
As Karthik Rajamani, one of our customer-turned-residents says,
So far it has been a pleasant stay here. We want to thank you and the entire SG Estates Team for helping us take possession of apartment in time; guiding us throughout on all the processes and helping us move in without much trouble.
It has indeed been a pleasure knowing and working with everyone on the SG Estates team.
We wish to hear a similar or perhaps a more heart-melting response from you next time. Because all we are here to earn are your esteemed wishes.
Wishing all of you a very Happy Diwali, and a prosperous year ahead!
