Hello Everyone,

Its a very urgent matter on which I would require your advise. There are so many threads already created with loads of information on what I am looking for. However, if there is positive info, there is negative stuff also abt the same project/flat and its just confusing me and given the time frame I've in hand, its just not going in right direction.

I am looking for a flat for my mother who stays alone and she has to vacate the Govt provided accomodation because my father passed away few months back.

Our budget is 35-40 Lks, and we are looking for something in Thane. I just need your expert advise within the above limitation.

We have to shift in another 3 months time. Pls pls pls, if you could advise something that could fall under the above criteria, that would be highly appreciated!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks in advance to all of you!!

Regards

  • For an aged lady living all by herself I would think Hiranandani Estate would be ideal. They would have some 1BHK on re-sale which would fit your budget. Ofcourse the Station and city are some distance from the township. However the place is self-contained to a great extent and would not warrant a ride regularly.

    Do not go for hiranandani estate.
    It is for the naake chadey so called middle class (assuming themselves to be high class) people.

    Get some nice resale flat near station in a small society where market & garden are close, neighbours are friendly and helpful (the common man).

    Also make sure that the society has some security expenditure (on security guards).

    Convenience is very important: availability of rickshaw, local groceries and vegetables at reasonable rates (old people are fussy :)), maybe close to some of your relatives (if you have any), get on first floor so it is more secure and accessible during power cuts, etc.

    It is not easy to find such a flat on your own. First decide on the area and then talk to a local agent. Don't go for an expensive flat, keep some money aside. You should be able to get a 1BHK for about 30L (all inclusive)

  • I would recommend Dosti Vihar. You may get a 1 bhk there at your budget. Have been tracking this project for some time and have not found negative remarks apart from a freak accident which happened during this monsoon in the adjoining wall.

  • TYVM all of you!! highly appreciate. I forgot to add, I was actually looking for 2BHK, However, as I do not stay in Mumbai, its very difficult to go out and search. Having said that, I would def go out and lookout for something if I know the exact areas/locations where I can find something in my budget.

    But I think I was hoping too much from this forum. There were 61 view but just 3 comments.

    Where are all those guys who always seems to be at the top of any other discussion/thread and shell out all their knowledge.

    Guys, this is just a little frustrating as I am feeling helpless and this furum was my last resort where I can seek advise from different brains at one platform. Trust me for this.

    Guys, please help!!!!

    Again, a great thanks to you in advance.

  • Resale is your best bet. Find an agent or two local to Thane. It is worth it.

  • i hear ya... sorry if i offended you in any way... i guess i see a lot of ppl just dumping old folks these days and so....

    as for ur problem, i say look something around pokhran rd 2 or ghodbunder rd... if possession seems some time away mayb u can rent some place for a yr or so.... i can understand ur helplessness sitting so far away....

    dont take this the wrong way, but have u looked at any assisted living facilities (i.e. old age homes).... i know there r quite a bunch in the west which let u live with dignity and independence... not sure if there's something along the lines in and around mumbai....

  • 35-40 lakhs is a very low budget for a 2BHK in Thane... You could give resale flats a try but I am not sure... Since its for your mom only, I dont see a problem in a 1BHK which will be in your budget...

    I was wondering if there is so much urgency, why not settle for a 1BHK in Thane rather than 2BHK. Now there is a 3BHK search in Bangalore! Poor Mom is going to feel mighty lonely staying alone in 3BHK

  • That's funny. How come there is no answer yet.
