Real Estate in India – Now is the time October 28, 2008

Posted by Bipin Agarwal in IT offshoring and Real Estate development, Politics and economy, Real Estate Development in Global Economy.

India is going though the growing pain as there is slow down in the world economy and the domestic economy is not well developed. There is no country in the world that has done well in the long run without developing domestic economy. Japan, US, Korea, US, Part of Europe.

De-valuation of the Rupee is a blessing for India to stay competitive in the export market while making a concerted effort to develop local economy. From a practical point of view, China, Japan are not having the advantage that India currently has. If India does not make use of the opportunity, it will be missed opportunity.

Real Estate sector in India is going through a needed correction. All the high end market, Mall development, high end hotel, these were wrong headed focus in the real estate development. It is about twenty years too early for that to happen. Good news is that correction is happening when most of the inventory is either with the developers or with the people who have paid for the property in cash.

What are the Real Estate opportunity in India moving forward?

  1. Affordable housing in an organized development using the concept of township that will include housing, commercial, retail, entertainment, etc. for domestic business development
  2. Mid-price hotel, Rs 1500 to Rs 3000 per day price
  3. Logistic and warehousing
  4. Infrastructure development

Real Estate development opportunity in India will have the benefit of export and domestic Economy of India. This is a great time to acquire large parcel of land at strategic location. Suburb of tier-one city with highway or Rail connectivity,  Good location in tier-two and tier-three cities. We have keep in mind that the price point for real estate are different depending on the city. When DLF starts building in Chandigarh, that is a concern. They do not understand the price point issue, they are a public company and when the Market expectation starts driving the business strategy, company is usually doomed. That is already reflected in DLF and Unitech share price. Local company that are not public are best positioned to take advantage of the opportunity.

Hi Sir,
I have been reading your posts, they are fantastic. Precisely and truly anticipating the global economy and real estate.
I was wondering if you would like to make a post on the reasons and causes of current condition of global economy and this “meltdown”.

You have been sensational in all your writings.
