  • Guidance needed in shortlisting Khargar projects and dealing with black money

    Respected members

    Quick background: I am looking to purchase an approx 1000 sqft apt 2BHK for around 40+ lacs in the Khargar area, in the Sep 2010. Purpose of purchase is combination of invst and having a roof over my head in the event of any job issues and return to India. Based on advice from members like sreekys bumped up my budget to 50 lacs.

    Last week my father made a visit to Khargar and shortlisted the following projects. Details of which are present below. I would be extremely grateful if this community should share their insights and perspective on the below project to help in the narrowing of the list. Comment around price per sq feet, builder reputation, location etc would be very much welcome.

    Full disclosure: the two things which have quite shocked me (having never bought a house before) was a. the percentage of black money still being demanded now-a-days b. the fact that my 50 lacs budget seems almost useless.

    I am truly wondering whether I should
    a. Bite the bullet and increase my budget?
    b. Change the location (Dombivili, Kalyan etc.) or change the time of purchase. (Visit India again after Diwali)?
    c. Increase the budget even more by 15 lacs and look at some place like Bhandup/ Mulund East?

    Here are the details of the 8 projects.

    Thanks in advance and hopefully there will be other who can use the below information in their house hunting process

    If someone asks for black money discard that option. RE is a long term and big investment. The builders who ask for black money are small and unscrupulous ones. Even the apartment (quality) they will sell to you will represent this. Rather spend you hard earned money with some good builder. There is no point buying from a unscrupulous builder at a great location in a building which needs to be redeveloped in 20 years. Even if you try to sell it before that, the buyer will not be as fool as you were.

    Kharghar is overpriced and the rate of appreciation would be less than the inflation (you will be burning money). Rather buy in Panvel where the rates are still sensible. On a price/quality basis, Kalpatru in panvel is better than the options you suggested. On a location basis, it is still well inhabitable and in future Panvel may garner more value than Kharghar as it has quite some land for big projects.

      This is not the time to buy property particularly when you are not a user. Keep the money in bank/ debt mutual fund to grow. The RE price has reached to such a level from where it can only go down and the same is going to happen soon.

          Please hold on and postpone the decision to end of the year. Even if rates might not fall, it will surely not go up as they are pretty high already....
          Never deal with black.... especially the 60:40, 70:30 builders.. unless you have already some black money at your disposal...
          No harm in doing a similar check and study of Dombivili Kalyan,

          Finally if you are planning to be abroad and manage stick to reputed builders like Godrej's, Kalpataru's and Hiranandani's .. Clean dealings and a hefty premium, but piece of mind.. and your dad does not need to run around...
          Delays are to be factored in for everyone..

              Converting hard earned white money into black by paying cash to the builder is stupidity

                  In 3 weeks if he gives approbal then expect to pay 10L more.
                  It is anyone's guess Mamba. How many will you stop. These NRIs get money like water and then they like to spend it like water.

                    I think the good times are gone.. NRI's do constitute a big chunk of buying.. but they do not earn money like water.. I think that phase is gone.. be it gulf.. or the west.. slowdown is having its impact .. I don't think many NRI's are in China...
                    Yes whenever I go to any construction site in Mumbai, the sales guy gives me that rubbish.. all booked 2 flats available.. 50% NRI's sir.. you will have great neighbors.. as if it is something good.. so that is not the reality.. I have seen projects in New Mumbai, Powai, JVLR, Goregaon, Chembur, Bandra.. everywhere broker or the sales guys tell the same thing.. all booked by NRI's

                    I have learnt to discount it as sales talk.. but agree they also constitute a certain proportion of buyer just as a resident indian..
