I am planning to invest in Chennai and make few bucks in the rising real estate market. Basically planning to start off by constructing one building with 6 apartments and sell them off, but am not sure which is the right place to buy the land and start the construction. Appreciate all for your time in advance.

  • New Investment Opportunities

    Dear Mr subbu,

    I do not know whether this topic is still active. Nevertheless, I post my views.

    In several newly developing areas of Chennai, apartments are not so hot. With Chennai growing horizontally, many people want to own only Individual houses. It is better to plan ur investments accordingly.

  • Why individual houses; any specific reasons?

    Hey! that sounds interesting. Can you please let us know a bit more on this trend and nevertheless we would like to know the reasons behind this.

    Because at times when apartments seem to rule the housing trend, why are people in Chennai showing preference for individual homes. And aren't indidividual homes costlier than apartments.

    Of course, I'm not very sure about the property prices in Chennai. Would love to know more........:)

    Subbu,

    I had similar ideas. One of the issues that bothered me was how would you handle the money and taxes? Let me explain what iam talking about

    Let us say(all the numbers are hypothetical and simplified my calculation)

    Cost of land - 20L
    Cost of construction(6apts@500sqft each-say 700Rs/sqft) -21L
    Total cost = 41L

    When you sell the apartments assuming you get 10L each
    Total revenue=60L

    Profit = 19L and you would have to pay taxes for it. Not only this, even though you had paid 20L for the land, the registered value might be just 5L, which means Your total cost on paper will be 26L.

    So you have to pay more taxes since your profit will be higher(on paper).

    Have you thought about this issue? Can someone clarify this?

    Stay away from BPTP. I would look at any of DLF priorities suiting my budget. As an end user the DLF name and brand certainly intrigues me to buy. Sure when you intend to sell there would be many folks who would think on the same lines. I can buy a micromax canvas 2 for 10 K or grand for 20. Both have same specifications. Most who can afford would buy grand. In india brand plays a big role. Also those citing dlf as grade b builder should be reminded that gurgaon is what it is today because of the dlf projects. Tata and others came much later. DLF is indias biggest developer.
