Indian developers are all geared up to offer NRI investors a wide choice of properties across India at an exhibition which is going to start on 16th March 2012.
It is the 20th India Property Exhibition in Doha on Friday which will showcase more than 100 projects spread across New Delhi, the National Capital Region, Jaipur, Mumbai, Pune, Goa, Hyderabad and several other cities.
The $12 billion realty market in India is on a high growth curve, because of the fast growing economy, increased participation of global players in the Indian market and new technological innovations.
According to organisers – Indus Fairs and Events (India) and Apex Business Solutions, Doha – the investment portfolio includes apartments, independent houses, bungalows, luxury villas, farmhouses, commercial properties, beach resorts and plots.
You need to give a second thought if you believe that commercial properties are purchased only by companies to aggrandize their business plans. Forthwith, money is put into commercial properties by High Net worth Individuals (HNIs) too.
In the past, the New Age Indians were just confined to investing in residential properties, but it does not goes for now-a-days. The trend is growing fast. According to the CMD of PropEquity, Samir Jasuja ,a large no. of HNIs will look ahead to buy commercial properties if banks do not show aversion to giving loans to individuals in order to invest in commercial properties. He added “the fact that banks do not show any positive response to sanction loans to individuals in order to purchase commercial properties is not a secret anymore. The status is same all over the world. That is why you cannot compel only our banks.”
The reason behind banks avoiding loans disbursal to individuals in investing in commercial properties is that the rate of default is very high in this segment as compared to residential properties. Thus, banks joyfully give loans for residential properties while they are not that interested when it comes to loans for the investment in commercial properties.
The director of Century 21 India, Anu Gupta suggested that HNIs should make investments in commercial properties as investing in them could prove to be highly beneficial as far as their return is concerned. The underlying reason would be that while they could go for bank loans up to 75-80 % for such purchases, the compensation of such loans could be set off against the rental incomes from such commercial properties. Therefore, as the retail/commercial industry grows, by investing a portion of the full price, an investor can gain a high-value asset, which will not only give maximum return (thanks to the set off provision in IT against rentals), but could see a significant appreciation over a period too.
Real estate is known as growing industry. That is why, change is the only constant thing or I must say that the change is the only predictable thing for this industry. We got the know the prediction that real estate will be on peak for residential properties and in the very next week we hear that investing in commercial properties are good for future. Such trend may create dilemma for the prospective buyers and investors.
The best way to update yourself with recent and upcoming trend is to keep your eyes on reliable websites. Information technology is playing very important role in providing information on time, which is needed before taking investment decision.
