Though off-late a slump in the real-estate was seen and expected to haunt the Bangalore real estate along with the economy in the year 2017. Here is a list of top 6 factors, which are haunting the Bangalore real estate;

  1. Demonetization;

After the declaration of demonetization, in November 2016, a drastic change in the real estate was noticed. The sale plummeted remarkably. Though the evil spirit of this ghost still haunts the real-estate market and had affected the market of new projects in Bangalore. People are willing to buy flats and want to even invest in the new construction in Bangalore, though it becomes really hard for them to pay the down payment as a slump had come in the market because of demonetization and banning of the notes. The government is too strict in cash transactions.


  1. Security of Females;

The latest molestation case in Bangalore had been in highlight for many days. People do show their rage towards the security in a city which was considered to be the safest city for women at some time. Today the time had changed, so as the safety, hence this factor is haunting and forcing people to make a distance in investing in the various sites in Bangalore.

  1. The upcoming of sub-standard projects;

You have been saving real hard, to get yourself the top project in Bangalore, and finally, you found out that you have invested your hard-earned money in a sub-standard project. This doubt had been created by builders who had either been using the lower grade raw material or coming up with add-on cost to be paid by the buyer disclosed at a later stage of the deal.

   4. Un-approved Project’s Market becoming Strong;

A term called Pre-Approved is used without any second thought. Though nothing like the same exist in the real-estate market. Builders are using this term to sell the new projects in Bangalore and the end results come to buying an unapproved project in hand. Such bad experiences are restricting people to invest in the under construction projects in Bangalore.

  1. The Broker’s fees becoming Big;

A person is already paying a good amount of down payment, and on top of it, the broker’s fees are becoming big with every passing day. This is actually restricting people to invest in the projects in Bangalore, as no one wants to pay a commission of over a lakh on a project of 30 lakh to the broker.

  1. Under Construction Projects in the Northern Bangalore;

Deconstruction projects in some major areas in Northern Bangalore are really haunting the real estate industry in Bangalore. Some of these projects are a standstill for years and several clients are claiming back their invested amounts. People don’t mind going for buying property nearby Bangalore, as there are better-planned projects with a comparatively less price.

Is there a time limit for registering the property? 

Why you need to register the property is for legal validation in owner’s name. Therefore, it is important to register the documents immediately, so that you are the legally recognised owner of the property at the earliest.


Officially, you have a window of four months from the date when you sign the property papers. You have an option to register it after four months too, but with a penalty. The penalty amount is hefty, more than 10 times the registration fee to be paid. However, this extension window (of another four months) is subject to permission of the District Registrar. After eight months there is no further scope.

Procedure for registering the property

You are required to publish the exact value of the property on a stamp paper. You can buy it from licensed stamp vendor shops. Make sure the paper carries details of the vendor like address, signature, along with a treasury seal.

Apartments or plots, which are better for investor’s?

Real estate investment offers a lot of choice now. It is not easy to choose between an apartment and a plot. What makes for a better investment option? Multiple points have to be considered to arrive at the best decision. Because both options have merits and de-merits of investment. It depends upon you personal requirement, budget, as well as time and effort. We explain these points below.

Advantages of buying an apartment

It is far convenient to buy an apartment. You have a ready choice. It means you don’t require hiring an architect. You will not be required to take legal permissions or liaison with local bodies to build a home. There is no need to haggle with contractors. Your project developer will take care of different requirements. You will only be presented with a perfect home of your choice.

The administration part of it will also be taken care of. You don’t have to worry about electricity or water supply connection, maintenance, security, or added facilities. In the nutshell, you are presented a ready package, which includes most of the things you want as a part of your lifestyle.

Advantages of buying a plot

Plot is a vacant piece of land. It means you have an option to build a home as per your exact requirement. You can design it the way you like. Another benefit is you can supervise the whole construction process. In other words, you can oversee the use of material used in building the house and also oversee any changes required, during the course of construction.

A major plus is ready possession. Plots are usually ready for possession. You will get the plot ownership before the flats are ready.


Comparative analysis

Your investment in a plot is likely to fetch you better returns. One reason is you have control over the input cost of building a home. Also, a single house construction will cost less than building the complete structure. A project developer is expected to cover the high cost of construction of apartments from home buyers only.

If the market situation is skewed towards the seller then, plot owners are expected to get better profits. The value of plots rise faster than apartments costs. It is often we come across a situation, in which, the price of apartments become stagnant. Remember, you have already purchased the property at a high cost, so the profit margin is not high if you decide to sell it.

If you choose to buy a plot, you won’t have the comfort of having a ready to move in place, which an apartment offers.

Whatever your final decision is, it is good to search on the internet to do a quick comparison. If you key in plots in Sarjapur, your screen will show multiple options, giving you the exact rate of constructing a home on the land. The area of the plot is also clearly mentioned to visualize your new home.

4 Tricks to get high profit in Land

Real estate properties are one of the most popular investment options in India. Most of the investors usually focus on residential units or office spaces which promise a return on investment on a regular basis. Resale prospects for a better rate are also an attraction for many property investors. Flats and other built-up properties are ideal for short-term investors as these can be sold when prices rise. However, if you are looking for a long term investment option that yields better profits, landed property is the ultimate choice. Land is the basic resource on which all other forms of real estate depend. However, it is not sufficient that you buy a plot and look for ways to earn income from it. There are some factors that add value to the landed property say experts at Sulekha Properties. Here are 4 tricks that you can consider while investing in a land.


  1. Buy early

Buying early when the price is low is the key to making high profit from landed property. Builders and developers are always in need for land resource for their projects. When the availability of land in an area decreases, they will move to other locations that show promise of development. Identifying such areas and buying land at a very early stage when the prices are low is crucial to making a good return from the land. With the arrival of roads, educational institutions, shopping complexes and other facilities, the real estate prices in an area will go up. Those who have bought land at an early stage can then sell it for a better rate.

  1. Size matters

Those who are looking forward to making a profit from land must invest in plots that can support large development projects. Builders and developers are interested in sizeable land where they can start their residential or commercial projects. So, if you are looking for land for sale in Bangalore or Mumbai or any other big city or emerging locations, make sure that the land is large enough so that you can sell it for a profit to builders and developers.

  1. Leasing

Leasing of land for various purposes is another option land owners can consider. Farmlands have great demand as more and more people and groups are into organic farming these days. Arable land can be leased to individuals and organisations involved in agricultural activities. Industrial leasing also ensures profit from the property.

  1. Add utilities

Run utilities like electricity and water to your landed property to improve its value. Buyers are more interested in properties that already have utility connections are willing to pay more for such plots.
