RE is a minefield of dodgy deals, litigation that could go on for decades if not generations, litigations that can come in decades later and so on.
In addition there is no proper valuation system as well as a transparent, realtime price discovery system.
Lastly (there are many others but these will suffice), there is no buyer protection in case of litigation (though buyer has followed due dilligence). Unlike in other markets with MFs and other kinds of instruments, this field is one where a lot of opacity exists. There is also a significant criminal element in terms of property being usurped and so on.
Unless these laws and guidelines are put in place, even if these instruments are launched, you will see anaemic flow of money into these instruments.
- for an investor with small savings or for soeone who does not have enough money to buy a house, REIT will provide a way to get involved in the real estate earnings.
Folks running the REIT funds will have more legal resources and expert oversight in property selections for investments. So the risk is diminished for an average person.
But it will take quite a few months for the REIT market to become operational and mature in India.
And as Wiseman said.. success depends on whether the govt has the balls to regulate the market in a transparent manner.CommentQuote0Flag
