Demonetization & its Effect on Real Estate & Indian Economy

On November 8,2016, a landmark judgment was passed by our government which made the use of then existing Rs. 500 and Rs. 1000 notes illegal in the next 4 hours.

Though there has been a mixed response from the public, it has been a great move for the economy.

The real estate industry has also been affected by the demonetization policy. Let’s have a look at how –

1. Benefit to Organized Builders

This move has given a huge benefit to organized developers who do not get involved in cash transactions. Now, the people who were preferring transactions in cash would be more interested in checking out properties of organized builders as well since they would have to pay in white only.

2. Transparency & Trust Boosted

Since all the transactions now will be only in white by each and every builder, the common notion about the real estate industry would also change. The entire notion about the real estate industry created by a handful of players, primarily in the tier II cities, the unorganized builders as they are also referred to as would now change and it would be considered as a more transparent and trustworthy industry.

3. Long Term Benefits

The real estate industry is expected to gain a great deal in the long run from this policy. Since real estate industry was a lucrative one for investments, certain people would divert their investments to other sectors just because of the perception created by a handful of builders.

Now, the scenario has completely changed. Now, all sectors would be looked at par, and since the real estate industry would gain a lot of transparency and trust from investors, investments are expected to increase a great deal.

Overall view on demonetization and impact on real estate market?

The landmark move or say a master stroke by the Modi Government to demonetize high-value currency notes will have a far-reaching impact on the capital-intensive real estate sector that’s what we are hearing everywhere. But according to my observation Primary market or organized developers and big developers will not be affected. It will have its effects on the Secondary market and resale. The land would become cheaper helping end users to buy property at the affordable price. The sales in primary market will improve.

In the long term, though, these measures to curb unaccounted wealth will increase transparency and credibility in the sector. The setting up of a Real Estate Regulatory Authority (RERA) in each state will also bring about increased accountability in the markets. While the general mood of a not-so-desperate property seller will be to wait and watch, these times may actually prove to be a boon for homebuyers who can look forward to some affordable deals that suit their pockets. Also, home loans will get cheaper and Institutional funding will become slightly easier for real estate developers .Expecting approval processes to become better and faster.

Ready to Move In VS under Construction Property: Which One Suits You Best?

Planning to buy a property in Gurgaon or elsewhere, but still confused as to which one should you opt for, a ready to move in or an under construction property. Well, both have to offer their own set of benefits.

Below, are a few pointers which highlight the benefits of both. They might be helpful for you in making the best choice.

•    Tax Implications

A ready to move in property saves you the service tax that needs to be paid in the case of an under construction property. This creates a difference of a few lakhs when it comes to the final cost of the apartment.

•    House Rentals

In case of an under construction property, there might be a probability where in you need to pay the home loan EMIs as well as, if you are living in a rented accommodation, together.
But in case of a ready to move in property, you can actually move in and save on rentals and just pay the EMIs or rent it out and earn rentals to pay your EMIs with immediate effect.

•    Home Loans and Payment Plan

An under construction property gives you the liberty to pay a certain booking amount, usually 10% of the entire property value, and for the remaining amount buy time as per the payment plan chosen.
In case of a ready to move in property, since the property is ready to use, the buying time to make the payments is far less.

•    Price Benefits

Usually, the normal trend that has been observed is that when the property is launched, the prices of the apartment in Gurgaon are always lower and keep increasing as and when the construction of the property nears completion. Therefore, if you have invested in an under construction property, by the time it is completed, you will see a price rise. Therefore, if you plan to liquidate it, you can earn huge profits.

The above are a few pointers you must consider while deciding on the kind of property you would like to invest in and choose the one that best suits you.

How to Choose the Best Payment Plan While Buying a New Home?

Planning to buy a new home, you surely would have been flooded with options where in you can pay in different time limits. These are different payment modes made available to the customers to make buying a home more easily convenient and affordable.

But how do you understand which one stands for what and most importantly which one suits you the best?


Here’s a brief on the most common payment plans offered to customers and in which scenario should they be selected.

  1. Down Payment Plan – This is the first payment plan usually offered to the customers where in usually you need to pay 95% in the first 30 – 60 days of booking.Now, this payment plan is most suited for people who have surplus money and are looking to invest it somewhere. The biggest advantage of this payment plan is that per square feet price in this case is the lowest. Therefore, you end up paying the least for the same apartment as opposed to any other payment plan you opt for.
  2. Construction Linked Payment Plan – This is again a very common payment plan offered to the customers. In this case, the payment pattern is linked to the construction of the project as the name suggests.As the construction keeps happening, after every landmark the customer is expected to pay a certain amount, which is predefined. For example, 5% of the total amount on excavation, 10% on laying the foundation, 5% on completing the 4th floor and so on and so forth.Since one is paying as per the construction, there is no question your money going in vain. Therefore, this is the best payment plan for those who put their life’s savings into it.
  3. Subvention Plan – This is a very convenient and friendly payment plan been introduced in the real estate industry lately. Here in you just need to pay a certain percentage in the beginning at the time of booking and post that you would only be paying after offer of possession.To help explain this payment plan better lets take an example of the most common subvention scheme offered, that is, 10:80:10. In such a case, the customer needs to pay 10% at the time of booking, the next 80% is covered by bank loan for which the EMI begins only once the customer gets the offer of possession. Till then, the pre EMI to the bank is paid by the developer. And the last 10% is to be paid to the developer at the time of offer of possession. This is best suited for people who are currently living in rented houses. This is because you can book your home with a booking amount and your EMI begins only once you get the offer of possession. Therefore, you move in and start living in your new house and convert your house rent into your EMI.

Analyze the payment options wisely before deciding on one and make the best deal for yourself.
