    I guess we have started seeing the price decline officially now.

    It starts with flats and plots will soon follow whether you like it or not.

      Thanks for reiterating the points discussed earlier.

      The earlier post was the opinion on the RE developments by an RE Experts M.K.Sundaram & G Mohan(though many(blindly) claim to be in that industry not knowing the trends).

      Today's news is first-ever incidence a promoter reducing the price even for the old bookings and you could infer the real need of the hour & trend.

      Where do you see the redundancy ? You are in front of a mirror ?

      All other companies are bound to respect the buyers ..Blindly cant claim the high prices as they were foolishly claiming all these days.(Some are foolish even after reading this announcement).

      More availability in OMR will decelerate the price & will get the development in 3-4 years time there by crashing the prices in now-prime areas.The places 'quoted' 1-2 crores today will fetch half in Q3-09 & either stabilise or depreciate further based on outcome/turnaround of recession.
      redundancy in stating price crash at far off places
      everyone on the forum agreed to it sethugm it will fall further there are no doubts. you know this place is behind satyabama univ.where there is a layout called harrisons,and one promoted by owners of venketeswara engg college and there is vast land there where the land is cheap and lot of tranquility nobody to disturb you . it is for people who want to 'rest in peace'
      you cant sell a 'jungle resort' as a home can you?

        t was launched at 2800/- only and as usual calling it pre launch price, just a gimmick and poor buyers who thinks he is getting a discount is duped. here is a post from another forum
        PEOPLE DONT REACT TO ANY NEWS ANALYZE IT AND GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT BEFORE FORMING AN OPINION. posters dont just post anything which suits your perspective or outlook
        all are here to know the real situation dont mislead them by overstating claims by builders(whom most of us shun)

          “We have to accept that it is a time for inflated land prices to come to reasonable levels,” explains Mr.Sundaram.

          “Around 30 per cent of the land near the IT Corridor is available for sale. But there are no takers,” said G.Mohan, Secretary, Federation of Tamil Nadu Flat and Housing Promoters Association.

          When more and more percentage of lands are available , more will be the crash.
          Looks like G.Mohan is not able to find FOOLISH LAND OWNERS to sell to him for a song! G.Mohan of Bhuvaneswari Constructions prefers FOOLISH LAND OWNERS!


          Have any questions or thoughts about this?
