I had purchased an apartment in Orchid Petals in 2006 as a second buyer at Rs2325/sq ft with a bank loan of 35 Lac at 12%.. I am paying an EMI of Rs 37K on this. I had got it for personal use (long term) but we are not likely to use it for next 4-5 years. The Location and Layout are nice.
In view of the inevitable price correction expected in Gurgaon, does it make sense to sell it now at the current price of 3500/sq ft, return the bank loan and look for an alternative say a year later. Will I get such a good location and layout and facilities in a reasonable or lesser price? For an apartment of 2000sq ft or more that I need, a bank loan is inevitable even later. Or should I hold onto this apartment even if I am paying hefty EMIs? Your views please to help me understand likely trends and make up my mind.

  • I must say you re a one Lucky fellow if you re still getting 3500 Rs per Sq Ft if you cannot hold it for real real Long Term Like Atleast 7-8 Years Then take this money and run away there are many builders which are coming up with new projects on the other side of Sohna Road with pricing As low as 2300 on papers and giving further 10 % discount which looking at markets conditions will be 20 30 % in no time The best time for Gurgaon is over in this Decade If you can really Wait till Next one which can be 2012 or 2018 then only think of holding it -- also note if this is the only property you hold where you need to stay in future then dont even bother about prices and interest rates just hold on probably give it on rent you will get 12000 15000 K as rent per month

  • Just to update i was surfing some real estate sites and was able to find 3300 rs per Sq ft and every one knows that these sites show inflated prices you re really getting a good deal at this point of time if its is not the only house you have including your close family sell it at once i expect 3000 rs or below prices by Feb -march , i am not really
    trying to scare you but GDP growth and hyped India is a thing of past now realistic values will emerge we re saying this from last 6 months those who heard are much better of today then those who went ahead and bought or didn't sell ( now they have no one to buy at that price ) when assets rise it rises more than people imagine and when it falls it falls even harder then one imagines

  • yes, as per the T&C builder have increased the super area by 5%. Brokers were quoting a price of around 300rs sft for that, last time I checked it. Just check the location and approach to the society before making up ur mind for petals.

    I don't think you will get 3500 psq now : The price slide is 3200 now

  • I think if there is a great amount of uncertainty, then you should sell this . But if you are firm that after one year you will take possession than please hold.

  • Hi,
    I would like to help you.
    I am looking for property in Gurgaon as an investment.
    Instead of paying comission to brokers, it would make good sense if we can meet to discuss your property.

    regards

  • No point selling now - you wont get it again at the price you have got in : 2300psf is a steal. Dont convert a good deal into a bad deal by rushing to sell. Its a buyer's market now. Wait for a seller's market - hold for 5-6 years and get a return of 100%. Sohna road will be like IFFCO chowk by then.

    This happened quite quickly, didn't it? 3.5x return in less than 5 years. Not bad!

    Venky, when do you think the buyers market would arrive again?
