Worli or Bandra

The Property market in Worli and Bandra is having a great clash. Bandra is known to be an expensive real estate market and with prices quoted @50000/- PSF to @100,000/- PSF on Pali Hill and Bandstand on Carpet Area basis it is even becoming tough for a Home Buyer to find a quality home with designer finishes or a Brand.

On the other hand, Worli and Lower Parel market quoted at say @45000/- for a good quality apartment on Carpet Area and going up to @70000 PSF gives you a great choice with a staggered payment plan.

Bandra – Khar the trend is more bullish with a smaller block to be ready in a couple of years and the payment pressure is typically on the buyer to part with nearly 50% odd in a few months of the initial booking.

Worli and Lower Parel are the emerging markets and with names like Trump Towers, World Towers, Omkar 1973, World Crest, One Avighna Park, Oberoi Oasis, India Bulls Skysuites, Sky Forests, HBS Realtors etc..the drift is seemingly more towards the New Launches.

With apartment blocks starting from 10 CR onwards, the Bandra or Worli market seems to have the Rich and Famous of the city. Connectivity to South Mumbai and Suburbs through the Bandra Worli Sea Link has thrown options open in the market.

With developers continuing to increase prices after every successful marketing campaigns, the market is looking pretty strong especially in Worli. Bandra on the other hand has a dearth of Land and redevelopment is the only option in Bandra and while it looks that the entire building is coming up, the truth remains that majority of the existing members come back to the Society and only the developer gets a few floors to sell to recover his margins.

It be interesting to see how things shape up in Worli and Lower Parel with tall towers coming up enriching the Skyline of Mumbai city…

Suburbun Locations – Spoilt for Choice

Mumbai Property Exchange
Mumbai Metropolitan Region Property Research

If you feel that if your budget is 40 to 60 Lacs and you need a good branded home, then i guess, you are spoilt for choice.

The obvious choices of many home buyers is are the following locations:

1. Virar
2. Dombivali
3. Kalyan
4. Panvel

All the above locations are within 30 -40 KM of a main stream Mumbai life and they enjoy, both Road and Rail Network.

The question to review now is, out of these 4 locations, which one to choose and which one has a growth both in terms of Infrastructure and Capital Appreciation.

Virar has a great Train and Road connectivity to Western Suburbs and Nariman Point. Rustomjee, Ekta Group are the most active developers in the Micro Location.

Dombivali is fast becoming a big junction but to get in and out of Dombivali Station and daring the train journey is an uphill task. However, the road connectivity to Thane and Navi Mumbai is pretty good and improving. Also, the traffic on this road is improving on a daily basis. Lodha Group Steals the show in Palava City.

Kalyan, an extension of Thane also has some good real estate brands and a stable Road Connectivity to VT through the Eastern Express Highway and Freeway will get you to South Mumbai in 1 hour 20 Min flat. Tata Housing as a Project and even Sheth Developers have one.

Panvel, another growing belt with huge infrastructure development in the pipeline and of course the much talked about Airport in future will be here which supposedly will bring in a lot of local economy. Adhiraj Group, Arihant Group, India Bulls are doing a major development there.

Interestingly, these locations have Big Developers, Brands and Large Township Projects.

But, for a Home Buyer, what is best?? A mere Home or an Investment or growing Infrastructure or a Distant Dream…

Interesting Property Times in January 2014

Mumbai property market to become very interesting in January 2014.

Brace yourself for new launches by Shapoorji, L&T, Lodha and a lot many top real estate developers in the market.

The Year 2013 saw an amazing trend with Developers having a strategy of pre-launching at prices which were way below the under construction property prices and the ready possession stock. Most of the projects launched with strategy by Lodha, Kalpataru, Shapoorji, Omkar and other developers witnessed superb traction.

Year 2014, should see a similar trend with Builders wanting to exit projects with maximum sales at lowest prices, as unlike 2010 – 2011 markets, there are many more projects in the market and at levels of parity in micro locations.

The market of 2013 and 2014 is going to be similar, but the only difference being that in 2014 Second Quarter, we may see a major bounce back of confidence due to the new government.

If you are a fence sitter, do review the situation that Top Developers don’t launch projects every few month. So do not wait thinking too much if you see a Top Developers project launched in your budgets. With 3-5 years possession you are bound to see an upside in most of the New Launches. It may be difficult to see what kind of returns one can expect, but be rest assured, that you will get better returns than any financial product and a quality asset which you can use in future.

Wish you a Great New Year ahead.
