  • I don't think so.
  • I don't think so.In Chennai, the prices r going to go up and most builders are not too keen on disposing their new flats as they want to wait and sell the unsold units at a higher price. I saw a new flat in Sept 2007 for Rs.4800 per sqft and when I saw the same in Dec 2007, I made up my mine to buy but at Rs.5200 per sqft. I already paid a high price for my stupidiy of waiting to take my chances and also, bcos of my delayed decision, I couldn't get in the floor I wanted. The same story for few of my friends.
    My suggestion would be to go for resale flats at half the price as long as its perfect in every way.
