A "low interest" loan shouldn't mean you have very little interest in paying it back!
  • The Curious Case of Festive Season and Home Buying Offers

    For a vast majority of Indians, the decision to purchase a home is rather hard to come by. In fact, for them the resolve only sets in after decade’s worth of fiscal planning and saving.

    Also, these people in question aren’t likely to buy a property until and unless the right opportunity comes along. However, the ‘right opportunity’ isn’t always around to be found because of several factors like inflation and the rapid increase in the cost of residential properties, which is compounded by high interest rates on home loans.

    When is the Right Time to Buy a House in India?

    Although, there isn’t a ‘right time’ to purchase a house in India, the upcoming festive season, is actually the best period a prospective home buyer can get. This is because real estate sector has witnessed a massive slump in business over the last couple of years. Currently, almost every builder has suffered losses due to piling inventories and rapid decline in project launches.

    This is also the reason why builders are under immense pressure to sell their properties, who are leveraging the festive season to offset the downward trend in business and increase the sales numbers.

    What Are Builders Doing to Entice Home Buyers?

    As mentioned earlier, builders are looking to cut their losses and have decided that the festive season is the best time to do so. Presently, plenty of builders across the country are coming up with various discount deals to attract more customers and in turn drive sales.

    Airwil Infra Ltd.

    Airwil Infra Ltd. too is in the offing to provide amazing deals for prospective home buyers. What is surprising in Airwil Infra Limited’s case, however, is the offers they are providing. In case of the one of their draws, the builder will declare 100 winners, out of which 30 winners will get Audi A4 sedans, the other 30 will get Audi A3 sedans, and the remaining 40 will get Mercedes B-Class sedans.

    40 customers in the next draw will get fully furnished villas. The total cost of running the draws would cost the company over Rs. 100 crore. However, Vikas Bhagat, the firm’s director is optimistic about spreading the festive cheer among their prospective buyers.

    When Can Customers Take Possession of The Aforementioned Properties?

    All the builders are of the impression that customers would rather step into a new home during the festive season rather than wait to take possession. To offset the demand, all the builders are following a timeline to finish as much projects as possible even before the festivities begin. For instance, Gaursons India is ready to offer about 15,000-20,000 residences to its customers within the next few months while Ajnara India Ltd. will be ready with 5000 to-move-in properties in the upcoming months.

    Bottomline, the upcoming festive season is set to improve the fledgling state of real estate in and around Delhi and its adjacent regions.
