Slow Down Of Real Estate Business In Delhi.

NEW DELHI: While the bears are ruling the stock market, there is a different asset class where the bulls are keeping away. Speculative investors in real estate market are retreating, at least in the Delhi-NCR region.
Some foremost developers based in the region say it is becoming more and more complicated for them to sell flats at launch stage due to lack of interest from speculators. This reflects on the inherent demand structure in the real estate market.
Developers attribute this to stability in prices as against the past where prices were shooting up on a monthly basis. They add that the difficulty in booking flats may delay projects and reduce their pricing power, “A year ago, if we were selling over 100 flats in a month at launch stage, we now sell only 30-40 per month. Speculators, who would earlier frenetically book flats at the pre-launch stage only, have now disappeared,” said a senior executive of a real estate firm.
Till mid-2007, speculators made quick money by booking multiple flats at the launch of a project and exiting within a few weeks or months. But now, Omaxe executive director Vipin Aggarwal says, “The property prices have stabilised with little scope for speculators to make such big gains in the short term, leading to their retreat.”
