Hi Friends,

I had been to the FAIRPRO '09 Fair.My Impression after seeing, is that prices are stagnating for all ongoing projects and builders are trying hard to hold them up.

Prices are 10-20% lower for new projects in the pipeline and for ready to occupy flats.

The discount offered at the stall was very less and were in the range 150-500 Rs/sqft max.

For the benefit of fellow members I am posting the project/price details of some of the properties.

  • Economist,
    Thank you you answered my question. The house was purchased more than 12 months ago. Only the 1st floor construction is within the 12 month period.
  • Demand for housing remained weak in the second half of 2013, due to slowing economic growth, coupled with high property prices and steep interest rates, says latest bi-annual report of CBRE, a global realty consultant.
    High vacancy levels and rising construction costs led to a slowdown in construction activity, leading to a decline in new launches, and further delay in project completion timelines, says the report. Liquidity issues and an increasing inventory caused developers to shift their focus from new launches to the completion of existing projects.
    While the premium housing segment saw a steady interest from high net worth individuals (HNIs) and non-resident Indians (NRIs), end-user demand in the high-end and mid-end segments remained low. The depreciating rupee, which tumbled to a series of record lows during 2013, resulted in an increase in NRI enquiries for property in India.
    Developers reduced prices across select projects and offered discounts or marketing promotions to attract buyers in micro-markets with high inventory levels.
    According to CBRE, Delhi NCR witnessed capital appreciation across most micro-markets. Capital values in locations such as Sohna Road and MG Road in Gurgaon increased by 4–5% owing to strong demand for high-end properties over the last review period. Mumbai’s housing market remained largely stable, with a slight appreciation in select premium micro-markets. The exception was central Mumbai, where values declined by 4–5%, owing to sluggish demand, in comparison to the first half of 2013. While prices appreciated in Bangalore’s Whitefield, the Outer Ring Road (ORR), Koramangala and Hebbal due to enhanced housing demand; a cautious home buyer sentiment continued to keep capital values stable in the luxury and high-end segments of Kolkata and Hyderabad.
    “Home buyer sentiments remained cautious and subdued due to high price points, with preferences shifting to secondary and emerging micro-markets of leading cities. Housing demand in the high-end and mid-end, as well as in the luxury segment, is likely to remain sluggish across India’s leading cities during the first half of 2014, due to the subdued, pre-election macro-economic environment,” said Anshuman Magazine, chairman and managing director of CBRE, South Asia Pvt. Ltd.
  • guys am a newbee on this circuit.I located a property called Vaibhav Gardens on ECR just opposite to great lakes university,this is about 8 kms away from mahabs and the layout is bang on the main road.they are quoting a price of 560/sq ft .Says it is a DTCP approved layout with about 90 sites ,out of which most of em are sold out. anyone has anything to say about this? Is it worth investing in this area? I saw a similar property by BLB estates another 6ms down near anupuram quarters quoting at 650/sq ft.whats your take on this? safe to buy ?will it double in 5 years time?
  • I was also checking out sriperambudur and was shocked to see the selling price lower than the guide line value,for example in kalvoy in SBR the GV is 450 but sellers are wanting just 250 /sft? why is this? prices on gst road have hit the roof and middle class can no longer afford to invest there,you have to look at melmaruvathur!!
  • What is the impact of ORR to Tambaram, Chrompet, Camp Road, Selayur? Is these areas getting benefitted by any means. Any impact on land prices in these areas.

    ECONOMICS FEBRUARY 28 Are banks rigging the price of gold?
    A finance researcher who in a landmark 2008 paper uncovered the manipulation of the London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR) has claimed that the price of gold is being manipulated in a similar manner, according to Liam Vaughan of Bloomberg.

    New York University Professor Rosa Abrantes-Metz's theory about LIBOR manipulation eventually led to banks being fined $6 billion.

    In a new paper, she and her co-author screened intraday trading in the spot gold market from 2001 to 2013 for sudden, unexplained moves that may indicate illegal behavior. They claim that the way in which the gold price is set "is certainly conducive to collusion and manipulation, and the empirical data are consistent with price artificiality." They conclude: "It is likely that co-operation between participants may be occurring."

    The gold price benchmark is determined twice a day, at 10:30 a.m. and 3 p.m., in conference calls between member banks of the London Bullion Market Association (LBMA), and is based on the current market price, plus or minus any orders that member banks or their clients wish to make. Like the LIBOR rate, the gold price set by this process is used as a benchmark by other banks and financial institutions around the world. In a $20 trillion market like gold, being able to set the benchmark price of an asset with little or no regulatory oversight could be seen as an opportunity for profitable insider trading.

    Of course, none of this actually proves that the gold price is being rigged for profit. But it does mean that financial regulators need to look at it more closely. - - John Aziz

  • Price Trends across Metros

    Several of the data in Chennai lacks credibility and looks to be a shoddy collection with complete disregards to sensibility..

    Sample: OMR/Navalur had a rental rise of 18% while Alwarpet fell 42% in the last 1 year

    This takes the cake: Sholinganallur prices rose 42% Pammal clocked 8% rise while KK Nagar and Mylapore lost 19% and 13% respectively

    99acres should concentrate more on building the online platform than attempting an amateurish work like this.
  • I guess "garbage in garbage out".
    If your source data is listing data in 99acres, on which you run analytics and produce such reports i can only feel sorry.
    Listing price on an online portal means nothing, no one discloses the closing price, so the variance is unknown.
    What is the source of this data, what is the public domain source data for rentals ? how wide are the the sample points?
    Its amusing at best, if 99acres gets a flat for 7000 in choolaimedu im sure many IREF members will buy.
  • Promoters started facing tough time. Orchid Springs offering 12 lacs off for Italian brand furnished air condition, wardrobe, modular kitchen ready to move apartments. There are about 3000 unsold medium range flats around Ambattur(source a small promoter who is sitting idle with three plot area for development, waiting for existing inventory to sell). OMR should be must be much worse, but the big builders holding their breath.

    But certain locally reputed builders medium projects are still moving at moderate budget in prime localities.

    High investment at this point of topi me in newly launched/under development projects looks not a wise decision.
