ET Realty Convention 2010: Planning new-age townships

ET Spcl: The way forward for new-age townships

20 Dec, 2010, 08.48AM IST, Neha Bhatia,ET Bureau

With metro cities already bustling with over-population , the focus of real estate developers and urban planners has now shifted towards developing the satellite towns on the periphery of bigger cities. However the biggest bottleneck in popularising new townships in the peripheral regions is the lack of proper connectivity. As the real estate sector is finally coming on the fast track, connectivity remains the major concern.

Giving an overview of the sprawling urban areas in different parts of the country at the Economic Times Realty Convention 2010, Kumari Selja, Minister, Housing & Urban Poverty Alleviation said, "Almost all the major towns and cities have expanded along the highways connecting cities in regions for example Delhi-Jaipur , Delhi-Meerut , Mumbai-Ahmedabad , and so many others throughout the country.

NCR/Delhi property rates peaked !

 Residential demand, not pricing, will drive growth

 Money Matters, Livemint, 9 Dec 10

We recently visited Delhi-National Capital Region (NCR), Bangalore, and Mumbai as a part of our GS India Property Tour. We visited about 25 sites at various stages of completion, met management teams and property consultants and made some broad industry-wide observations.

As we had highlighted in our 8 November report, we believe that property prices in pockets of Delhi-NCR and Mumbai in particular seem to have peaked, and we expect limited further price appreciation. Prices in Bangalore have remained fairly stable, but further appreciation should be held in check by high supply potential. We observed higher price inflation in city-centre properties during our tour.

दिल्ली-नोएडा के बीच नया पुल
13 Feb 2011, 0721 hrs IST,नवभारत टाइम्स

विनोद शर्मा ।। नोएडा
नोएडा से साउथ दिल्ली, फरीदाबाद और गुड़गांव की कनेक्टिविटी अब और आसान बनने जा रही है। नोएडा अथॉरिटी ओखला बैराज के पास यमुना पर नया ब्रिज बनाने जा रही है। इसका कंस्ट्रक्शन अगले चार महीने में शुरू हो जाएगा। तब तक टेक्निकल प्रोसेस का काम पूरा किया जा रहा है। ब्रिज को पूरा करने का टारगेट 31 दिसंबर 2013 रखा गया है। ब्रिज का पूरा खर्च नोएडा अथॉरिटी उठाएगी।

नोएडा, ग्रेटर नोएडा और यमुना एक्सप्रेस वे अथॉरिटी के चेयरमैन मोहिंदर सिंह ने एनबीटी को बताया कि नया पुल नोएडा से जुड़ने वाले ओखला बैराज और डीएनडी, दोनों से काफी अलग होगा। इस पुल का मेट्रो रूट के साथ तालमेल बैठाया जाएगा। नैशनल बोटैनिकल गार्डन के पास मेट्रो का तिराहा होगा। यहां से एक राह दिल्ली, दूसरी सिटी सेंटर व ग्रेटर नोएडा और तीसरी साउथ दिल्ली की तरफ जाएगी।

NCR Realty Hot While Mumbai Realty Cools

Difference due to pricing; up by a third in Mumbai since Jan, almost stationary in Delhi.

Sanjay Sanghvi, a real estate consultant in the Dadar area of Central Mumbai, says these days he barely manages to broker two-three apartment deals a month, compared to half-a-dozen almost a year ago.

 "It is difficult now. People are reluctant to buy, as prices have gone up sharply. They will buy only if prices come down," says Sanghvi.

Sanghvi says he is flooded with sales calls from developers — including Indiabulls, Lodha Group and DB Realty — building high rises in Lower Parel-Worli-Parel area of south-central Mumbai. Prices in this erstwhile textile hub range from Rs 22,000 to Rs 35,000 a square feet.

Sanghvi's case is just an instance of dwindling home sales in the country's commercial capital, following steep rises in prices over the last one year. According to realty research company PropEquity, home sales in Mumbai have fallen 35 per cent since the beginning of the year and 45 per cent since June this year



But the scene is quite different in the national capital region, or NCR, which comprises New Delhi and its satellite towns such as Noida, Gurgaon, Ghaziabad and Faridabad. Property sales in these areas have gone up nearly 90 per cent since the beginning of the year.

Price is obviously the main factor. Data show that prices in Mumbai city have risen 28 per cent since the beginning of the year and 13 per cent since June.

"During 2008-09, nobody was buying and prices were at reasonable levels. A lot of pent-up demand came into the market after that. But after so much hectic buying and price rise, sales are bound to take a knock," says Anshul Jain, chief executive of DTZ, an international property consultant.

In most areas of the NCR, however, prices have remained stagnant since the beginning of the year. For instance, in Noida, average property price hovers around Rs 3,341 a sq ft, compared to Rs 3,140 in January, a mere five per cent increase. Prices have gone up by 1.48 per cent in New Delhi since the beginning of the year.

In NCR, Flats change hands twice before possession

From booking to possession, a flat is sold twice in NCR

GURGAON: From the time of inviting bookings for a flat to the stage where the developer gives the final possession, a dwelling unit changes on an average two owners in the NCR, claimed property gurus. Ashutosh Limaye, local director, strategic consulting, Jones Lang LaSalle, India, explained: If we consider the legitimate deals, approximately 25 per cent buyers are actually investors. Though there are no specific data available, out of these, close to 25 per cent investors are those who do it for a short term while the rest wait to get  possession. Also, there might be cases where developers offer to buy their units back when the market is on a positive curve. This kind of change of ownership could also mean some fee paid to the developer, though not known formally.

NCR Realty Prices Affordable?

Experts feel realty could correct soon

If you are looking for a decent two BHK flat in the national capital, you have very dim chances of getting one for less than Rs 1 crore.

This is what your property broker would most likely tell you.

"I was looking for two bedroom set in Delhi and Noida for the past six months. But even with a budget of Rs 60 lakh I could not buy a flat for myself. All I was offered was the remote areas in Greater Noida, without proper infrastructure or connectivity," Nitin Agarwal, a senior executive with an auto company said.

In the last six months, home prices in all major metros have gone up very sharply putting it out of reach of the common man.

NCR Top Residential Hotspot for Investment

Many cities in the country, after the slowdown, are once again in the spotlight for the good investment potential they offer in the mid to long term

The only segment to emerge almost unscathed from the turmoil that the real estate sector underwent during the slowdown was the residential sector. Its resilience in the face of negative global cues was as much a result of the latent demand for affordable housing in India as the large share of the Indian real estate pie that the residential sector holds.

As with office space and retail malls, residential property did, to a lesser degree, suffer the effects of the global downturn in 2008 and 2009. However, unlike its counterparts, the residential sector has begun to show signs of stability in many markets, and even recovery in certain cities. Whether this trend will continue depends in large part on economic factors (mortgage rates, GDP growth, labour market stability) and on prudent decisions by developers on issues relating to pricing and quality of products being offered.

Jones Lang LaSalle Meghraj Research conducted an analysis of residential markets across India to help identify investment hotspots for retail investors. While abnormally large returns can be found in specific projects throughout the country, the analysis was limited to India's seven largest cities due to high residential demand from their large populations, relatively higher transparency levels and presence of premium regional and national developers.

The top ten cities were Gurgaon, Mumbai, Noida, Pune, Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Ahmedabad and Kochi.

Indians Prefer NCR/Delhi to Buy House

The real estate market in India continues to be an end-user market. However as far as investments are concerned, Delhi, Mumbai and Hyderabad are the top three most preferred real estate investment destinations in 2010, nationally. According to a recent survey, ‘Realty Trends 2010’ for Indian metros and Tier II cities by web portal, the realty sector in 2010 is going to be driven by end-users. Intere-stingly, the market on a whole is buzzing with a lot of activity.

As per the survey findings, amongst the respondents, the national capital tops the chart with 34 per cent buyers wanting to buy a house here. This is followed by Mumbai with 28 per cent interested buyers nationally and 11 per cent each in Bengaluru and Hyderabad. The survey also reveals that due to recession and fluctuating property prices, property seekers were shying away from making a property purchase last year, but with the improving economy and slightly stable property prices, property seekers are ready to jump into the market this year. It’s interesting to know that most buyers, who are interested to buy a house, this year, want it for self-consumption. This confirms the fact that speculators, which drove the real estate boom from the years 2004 to 2007 are more or less out of the market. And even the ones who are willing to invest at this time are long-term investors.
