Guys. Great bit. My 2 cents to it.

As things stand rite now, all the pointers are towards a slow down...not sure if it would be a full blown recession. It would be difficult to predict by anyone.. so we should take it with a pinch of salt.

On real estate front, i think the key driver on prices are two factors:
a. Illiquidity of the asset class: When you want to buy it, there are no sellers and vice versa..........when you want to sell there are no buyers. And typically this mismatch is what always creates a scenario of one paying over or under value.

b. Holding capacity of the builders/ investors: So while we all know that prices are completely unrealistic but the ability of builders to hold on that price level ensures that there is no correction.

In my opinion, even with a recession.......the prices will not go down significantly.....purely because of the high holding capacity... I live in Mumbai....prices here are unbeleivable.........people talk of buying a 1 cr house as if they are just going to go and eat "paan"... but its the sheer holding power which doesnt reduce the prices.

But , the fact that prices are unrealistic is reflected in transactions dwindling down..........because at the end of the day the paying capacity has to match. So a classical case of unrealistic prices but high holding power.

Now with recession, the paying capacity will not go up as expected and transactions will go down further but the prices will depend on holding power which atleast Mumbai Builders have enough.

My advise would be, if you need to buy for yourself and can afford... buy. dont count much on recession. However, if you are investor, you need to assess your horizon and the exit plan. Surely you would find it difficult to sell if the recession is serious.. At these prices , most of us can only think of one investment in life time... so be thought ful..

good luck

but the risk is if recession doesn't come...then you could be loosing 10% premium in next 6months... with RBI planning to cut rates, one can't be so sure... and even if a soft recession comes prices won't fall more than 10%... so the question is does it really make sense to hold your money and sit on the sidelines

RBI will cut rate 1% (max) on loan which will not affect market much. A person who invest 50 lakh on loan for him paying extra EMI of 2000 Rs per month is nothing. If he want he can buy now also. I think this is just ................

Hi Friends,

well i am a nw member, but found this thread practical on the grounds of present situations.
Presently all the exixting projects as well as upcoming ones, they are on the peak, compare it with last two years pricing........its no where related to reality.
There is a need of correction and we buyers and investers can do so.
Please please hold your monies as this is not the right time to jump in a tide.......... rest assured there are good buy's awaiting in coming 6 months time.

All the best and you all are welcome to share your inputs as well as counter my views

An Economy is considered in recession means if it is slowing down for two consecutive quarters.
Here in India's case we are contracting since start of 2010 from GDP Growth rate of 9.4% to 5.3% which is 9 quarters of consecutive down trend , and in this period we poor people were falsely made to believe that we are in Growth phase. Actually we did not feel that much pinch as we were still having the Positive growth rate and we were not going negative and we fools with whole country with the help of paid media and politicians propeganda who are heavily invested in RE ,beleived that we are out of recession .... But now overseas investors have realized that the growth story of india is a false hope , the have down graded india and india is on the verge of default, now these greedy industralists and overseas investors are crying the same rona about policy Grid lock, Lack of commitments by Govt etc. who were praising Govt. when govt was softening rates.

So Guys we are already in recession since last 9 quarters and now going to the depression. So you all be prepared for it, preserve your capital(cash) , Liquidify your Property investments (they will become scrap when our priorities will change to accumulate food for our family ) , Invest in physical Gold which will come in use for buying essentials....

Exactly, when U find more investors than end-users in most Reality forums, on ground, one can see the Occupancy levels which too look absysmal im most farway projects, one can sense the doom which is fast approaching but is acted in angry denial at least by those already invested.
If property prices can crash in US in 2008 and are yet to reach 50% of peak prices 4 years thence, if Chinese are grappling with falling property prices for last 2 years ever since govt. imposed regulations there, there is no reason to believe India won't suffer.
With prices sky-high in prime areas and vast supply in far-away areas and an economy going downhill by the day, one wonders does it make any sense at all to dabble in this ...........

I agree, this forum is mostly full of investors and not that many end users. No wonder so many people are bullish on this forum.
