As I had said earlier, Jun-Aug is the best season to buy property.
I agree. Diwali time is bonanza time for builders,with many end users, trying to book their dream homes & investors, trying to cash in on the perceived discounts on offer.CommentQuote0Flag

- Whatever is the case, it is also a fact that sales didn't take place they should in this Diwali. This year seeing people buying cars/bikes/TV/Comp rather than flat. Talked with 3 people & they said it doesn't make sense to buy house at these rates & high interest rates so buying other stuff :). Btw, I called Tata Croma yesterday & the salesrep used to get disturbed as people were asking him queries continuously (more buyers & less salesrep ratio). He now has invited me to the store to show some festive offers :)CommentQuote0Flag

Last year was very bad for consumer durables as well. This year, RE fares badly in this period while consumer durables has picked up really well. That's the difference as people find more value in later.CommentQuote0Flag
- I think "the Diwali" which we are talking about is still 2-3 years away. I dont anyways see a crash but the RE prices should stay around the same level.
I think we should have a regulator by March 2012. The DTC would kick in. The inflation should be around 7%. Hold good cash , and then its time to start the search.
My Buying year is 2013-2014 or maybe 2015.
Right now, I think its a good time to just FORGET about RE.CommentQuote0Flag

These type of RE guys will put 10% & borrow 10% from friends/relatives :D
A friend exhausted mutual-fund/investments, applied for max home-loan. Now wants personal loan from me. He's ready to give 15% (mkt rate 18%).
I denied coz don't want NPA in my balance-sheet and invested in Coal-India.CommentQuote0Flag

- This is the best thread to read on the speculative RE crash with year of Diwali not mentioned in the title. :D Although Diwali for this year is a bit far, let's hope the RE price correction happens this Diwali atleast. :bab (6):CommentQuote0Flag
