Gudi Padwa, a festival which earmarks new beginnings and new hopes to everybody’s life. Hence many builders announce their new projects at this point of time taking into consideration the sentiments of the local market. The festival is widely celebrated in the state of Maharashtra. As for common people in India, a home is a priced possession and they do not sell and buy residential properties often. They wait for an auspicious date to such transactions.
Keeping this in mind, realtors at Pune has organized Sakal Pune Property Show named as Sakal Gudi Padwa Grihotsav 2012. Across the just concluded quarter, residential prices in the outskirts of Mumbai have seen a positive slide. With the Union Budget 2012 giving due consideration to the loans of affordable housing projects coupled with the positive feeling related to the festival, buyers and sellers expect to strike a great deal during this year’s Gudi Padwa.
The buyers mainly constitute the New Urban Family Sector. Moreover, during this festive season, realtors juxtapose the properties with attractive discounts and freebies. But with these factors only, nobody can lure customers today. They are more oriented towards the location of the property, the pricing and the quality of construction.
The recent years were not so good for real estate sector. The ever rising inflation rates and interest rates kept the buyers at the bay. But the recent decision of the RBI to cut CRR rates gives little bit of hope to the sector.
However real estate experts suggest that the sentiments related to a festival only cannot trigger the sector. But it is decisive in getting the real estate market on the right track after a gloom. Moreover, traditionally Gudi Padwa means birth of bhoomi and bhoomi is everybody’s shelter. We can hope and look forward for bright days for real estate sector ahead with this auspicious festival.
