    I think he has worked with sales in various builders and blogs because of an interest in real estate and thus his natural tendency is to write about a project from a sales perspective.

    He never talked me into buying any particular project and i have found that he gives balanced views. What is missing is the buyer approach in terms of quality of internal fittings and surrounding areas etc..
    1) Thanks akssenti for your kind words!

    2) Thanks for the suggestion about "what is missing". Yes, i will improve on it. However, let me confess, again, how much i try, i can't look at any project from buyer's perspective. Simply because i am not a property buyer. I am real estate salesman. I will never try to fake or try to project what i am not.

    3) As a real estate advertising expert, i know that "quality of internal fittings and fixtures" has no value than pure sales talk. As a real estate salesman, i know that you can say "No to fittings and fixtures builder is offering" and supply and fit yours.

    4) Yes, i am going to write about the surrounding area. Thanks for the suggestion.

    5) Please, feel free to call or write to me. You know where to find the details. Thanks!

      Yes, you are right, realacres!

      First, how can any real estate salesman say that current time is not ripe to buy a property in Pune? He will not get a salary and a commission and may get a "pink slip"!

      Second, as a person, blogger and real estate consultant, i enjoy expressing my views.

      As a person, i believe that popular TV show should not be a deciding factor at what time you should go to bed. (I am trying to develop the habit of waking up early!)
      As a blogger on my "news" blog i give news about what is happening in Pune real estate market. It's not a guide to real estate investment.
      As a real estate salesman, i believe that one should take a decision to by a flat as per his "time table of life" and not because the market is good.

      Buying a home is an event, important step in your life. I know well that i don't have any authority to say how you should live you life. Right? Please, remember that i am just trying to have an "informative" conversation.

        Yes, I completely agree with you, akssenti! Even, i do the same!!

          I must say Ravi is a very nice person, he never talks to you like a businessman.

          I think he believes any-time is a good-time to buy or sell, its a personal choice. Since he has been a salesman of RE earlier (and may be currently as well) he always thinks stop buying RE is not a choice, the buyers negotiating hard and demanding for what they pay for is the right way to stop builders from playing tactics.
          Thanks tsongt! I believe empowering property buyers. Only assertive an proactive property buyers can influence Pune real estate market to give a better product at a competitive price.

I have never met him as I am not from pune. I have emailed him and he has always been prompt in replying his emails... he has been a great help for me in understanding RE. I read his blogs regularly.
            Thanks dhinchek!

              Yes, I do agree with you his opinion is very unbiased and he is not intended to interfere in ur decision. And why not to take some of the help from the person who has proper knowledge of the project which you r interested in buying. to follow that or not is at all the indivisuals decision.

                I also spoke with him once.I found him good to share his experience and thoughts.Though he has not insisted on any particular project/builder.
                If you are first time buyer then I suggest you to just check with him the project/flat you have shortlisted.You never know he might have something to share about it !
                At the end of day it's upto you to listen to him or not

                      even I posted a interesting long post a couple days back..I am still waiting moderator to post that That was related to MF Vs RE comparison, so I think moderator should not find anything which prevent him to not post that!!!
                      Cheers,
