  • How good is Balewadi ????

    Hi Friends,

    I am starting this thread to get objective view of things for specific areas in Pune.

    Can you rate "Balewadi" area on following parameters,
    1) Infrastructure
    2) Basic amenities (water & electricity supply)
    3) Location
    4) Proximity to Shopping areas (basic grocery) and schools
    5) Value for Money
    6) Appreciation in next 5 years

    Rating Scale:
    0 - Bad,
    1 - Poor,
    2 - Average,
    3 - Good,
    4 - Excellent,
    5 - Best in Pune

    Would appreciate if you could give ratings to each parameter separately and a final score/total.

    Of course, the idea is to get an objective view but we can also discuss and debate on specific points.

    Hoping to see a good response.

    Cheers.

      Following ratings are only for the Baner-Balewadi road. It would be drastically different for the Balewadi village.

      1) Infrastructure - 3
      2) Basic amenities (water & electricity supply) - 3
      3) Location - 4
      4) Proximity to Shopping areas (basic grocery) and schools - 4
      5) Value for Money - 4
      6) Appreciation in next 5 years - 4

      This is my personal opinion..Can vary person to person.

          1) Infrastructure - 3.5 (Depends on the definition of 5, situation will approve after the so called DP roads are laid). Again Balewadi have pockets with good infrastucture and not so good infra
          2) Basic amenities (water & electricity supply)- 3 (water is a known issue
          3) Location - 4 (Great connectivity to Mumbai- Bangalore highway and Hinjewadi)
          4) Proximity to Shopping areas (basic grocery) and schools: Shopping 3.5 (Dmart near by and basic Rajsthani kirana shop,medical shop all available) , Schools - 4.5 (Vidya Valley, Indira National School,Orchid, Akshara,VIBGYOR, Bharti for class 1 and above. For Kids Sapling, Indira Kids,Orchid and few more). They are not the best schools in Pune but still the options are good.Most of the kids from even Baner goes to this school. So being at Balewadi further reduces travel distance.
          5) Value for Money: 3.5 (I will not buy at this price in Balewadi, I will book a house to the other side of the road and stay on rent for 2-3 years till the possession is given. By then the other side of the road will also develope). This will be my personal way of doing, others may have difference of opinion but this is what I will do at current price.
          6) Appreciation in next 5 years:3 Have already reached potential(however we still see increase in price every day), with lot of space to the other side of highway I see real appreciatio only after that side is filled.

              I hav booked my flat in Balewadi...but still I divide balewadi into two main area...one which is on the immidiate left or right side of Balewadi Mitcon road...where projects like..Elite, park express, chaitanya, vanshaj..even pearl ...for those 20+ will be my score...but another area like..amit sapphire park, concord portia, golden trellis, vatika, oorvy where currently there is no approach scores pretty less...may be in future if DP road cumes..that will be on higher side but at this moment no DP road..only in papers...Many commercial projects are launchin including marvel residnetial projects on balewadi mitcon main road...

                It depends on every ones need. For example for location I rated it based on proximity to Hinjewadi and highway. If someone is working in Hadapsar side this location will not make sence, but why would someone working in Hadapsar buy in Balewadi.

                Again for shopping if someone needs to go to big shopping malls every day then Balewadi is not a great location........I go only few times an year so having multiplex or big shopping mall is never a big criteria for me. What is important is availability of kirana and basic stuff store which is readily available.

                For me having option of school is very important and Balewadi scores very high on that.

                To sum up different people will have different opinion based on their liking,way of living, family situation etc.................However I have not seen people who actually staythere complaining too much.

                And yes let me add that there is a International standard Balewadi sports complex with great sports amenity which is relatively cheap. If you are into sports you will just love Balewadi. You have to just visit the complex to see what it offers.Again if you are into getting up at 8 am then this amenity will not make sense. So it is important to understand the area and associate with one's need before making an informed decision.

                Cheers,
                Birendra.

                  What you say might be true about Infra only but on all the other parameters, I would expect entire Balewadi area to be one. Besides , projects like amit sapphire park, concord portia are hardly 2 minutes drive from the main road. So, I dont see a big problem there? Or am I missing something....

                  birendra, I agree. One size fits all does not apply here. Most of the things you say are generic and helpful for all. Do you have some details about the sports facilities available at Balewadi Stadium. I was looking for their official website but could not find anything on the net.

                    Does anyone has any update on the approach road status, for Sapphire park and concord portia?..the last time I visited (3-4 months bck) that area, saw a board... with wordings like the land, on which the existing road is there..is a private owned one.
