    The new crop comes along as new people ( again from old Pune ) start looking for homes to buy or rent.
    As they get their feet wet in the RE market ( and figure out their and BR's worth ) they quietly move out of the shouting crowd ( and they don't declare that they are moving out, and no one else notices that either ).
    Only to be replaced with a fresh crop of new ( but temporary ) converts.......wanting to shout louder than the previous batch.

    IF
    BR is far........don't go there.
    BR doesn't have amenities......don't live there.
    BR is pricey.....don't buy.


    Lot of assumptions about anyone who dares criticise blue ridge.

    Ok I will speak for myself.
    M not a pune local old or new
    Don't live in br as tenant. I live in aundh.
    I find br ok

    Don't buy? Maybe yes maybe no. Criticise its flaws - yes.

    Just because you have invested there does not mean anyone cannot criticise it.

    It is a good scheme yes. But a wrong location.

    OK....Sure....we all can take that......thanks.

    On the same token, I am sure you have noticed that most of the whiney posts come from people who find nothing right with BR EXCEPT its location being near their work ( & may be the school )....but too timid to admit that also.

    Not sure who you are referring to.

    Anyway lets agree to disagree. It is not that I cannot buy there. My search is still on. It is about what I am getting for the price I am paying. Whatever investwest said is true to a great extent. If a buyer has to adjust with ao many things after paying a bomb then it is a bad deal!

    If it is amenities then many schemes have these amenities except maybe golf course. Examples are megapolis magarpatta malpani greens apostrophe park Street woods etc.

    Amenities are not everything. There is Mastercard

    Can't we have honest opinions? Let me clarify one thing, every other society has a garden on ground or on podium in pune and every other kid likes to watch and play on it.


    Hi Investwest,

    My both post for MP & BR are unbiased. I do stay in BR right now. I still feel BR is deserted most of the day time. Having said that it doesn't make BR worst than MP. You wanted the honest opinion & you have it from me. This is my 1st hand experience. Matter of the the fact is I have chosen to stay in BR with all points in mind & still stay in BR.

    looking at your most of the previous posts on the forum
    I would say good luck!

    Cheers!

  • :) Dude, I appreciate your opinions.. I just pointed you that there are people who have opposite views and then there's me who's trying to convince myself for any of these two but I am always failing in that.

    yeah people disappear as they have other things to do and other important work in life than praising their investments on forums in the hopes that in future they get good prices..

    If we start comparing small projects with BR, it'll not be fair. but yes we can definitely compare it with other township options available - this applies for project to project comparison.

    As 'Sat234' mentioned, no doubt BR is good but the location is wrong.. I agree to it.
    But let me clarify further more that 'BR is good' doesn't mean that BR is best of all.

    Thats not really fair.. If you go through previous posts,, You will find sufficient number of posts by members who seem to be either invested or residents, pointing out some of the flaws of BR ..

    Right from construction issues.. to whatever ..

    But I find it quite absurd when people make statements like " the location of BR is wrong"
    Seriously, wrong for what ?.. and wrong for whom..
    If you say.. the location is wrong for yourself.. totally understood.. it dosent suit your needs.. so wrong for you..
    I dont even work in Hinjewadi.. and I totally love the location..
    before moving to BR... I have actually spent half of my weekends at various weekend getaway places.. Just to get out of the city..

    So if there is something I like about BR.. one of the things is also the location..
    I mean these things are so relative.. so whats the point in going on about it..

    Is it the other way round that they took decision in the impression of these praise posts on forums and then they found it to be a bad decision? Or may be when they started living there, they got to know about the 'real' issues?

    Many bachelor tenants I know are living there for the same reason with few more coupled benefits such as freedom to do anything as they don't get neighbors on the floors, many societies in well developed areas don't allow bachelor tenants or if they allow they have their rules for bachelor tenants.

    I also know someone who shifted to BR as a tenant just to check if he and his family can live there before taking the decision of buying a flat there. He ended up buying in park street.

    "probably not valued enough to buy" exactly that's what we are trying to make a point.. when we raise some issues, our purpose is not to criticize this project or your decision or investment. We are making a point that we don't think/feel that it justifies the price of ownership.. something we call it's not worth "value for money".

    You mentioned - Rents are 2k cheap - don't you think what could be the reason? Don't you think it's very hard to find tenants in hinjewadi than finding tenants in wakad or PS or Aundh?
    Why many people preferring wakad for renting a flat even if it costs 2k+ more per month?

    Very well said. If someone's is planning for a flat for more than 1CR he'll think n number of factors and not just amenities which he can access anyways and anywhere - by joining clubs.
    All the societies you mentioned in your posts are very good, in well developed localities (except MP) and have range of offerings for better living.
    Take your own time and don't fall for such praising posts, it's matter of 1CR+ and not of few thousands.
    If I could have succeeded in convincing myself at the launch of BR (throw away prices as compared to today's quotes) then probably I would have been writing only good things about it by avoiding healthy discussions about the real issues of projects here.
    Nothing personal..

    The truth is....they want to own a place in BR .....but can't.....so come here and throw a brick or two.
    Most of the whining......primarily stems from not affording.


    We don't expect such a behavior here..
    Don't know about Sat234 but from his previous posts I can very well point that he's looking for something in the price range of 1-1.5 cr.. for me I don't need to specify you my budget or worth.. But it doesn't mean that I have money so I'll buy anything for exaggerated price than it's actual value.

    And, you don't own the thread or forum and hence you don't have any right to ask anyone to not to comment here or leave the thread.

    So you think Megapolis is better than BR? One can understand if BR was better then Life Republic but Megapolis is like at the end of Phase 3. If BR location is a problem them Megapolis does not even come into the picture.

    For investors go for KUL or Life Republic if BR is not suitable. Megapolis is just not even in the question.

    No I am not saying MP is better or BR is bad.. We are just trying to understand various issues by discussing out doubts here and trying to get feedback of various members on it so that we can understand that if we are giving correct weight/importance to our particular concern. But instead of discussing it in a healthy environment, people started praising BR for anything and then they started personal attacks saying that of one cannot own here that means he's jealous and hence he's making negative comments here.. in another post again someone said that they cannot own.. common man.. when we'll be mature?
