The Local Indicators For Real Estate Deals

When we discuss of the real estate market, deliberately or not we use nationwide statistics to shape the desired opinion about the property market. But this is a reality that the real estate market is based on local, and, in many cases, micro-level economies.
It is true that, certain factors such as interest rates affect all the markets, but there is no broad barometer to measure the entire housing and property industry in India. Average prices, average new homes sold and average homes built across the country has little relevance to any precise locality. So while calculations, economic and statistical factors are pertinent, so is common sense - take a look around and see what's real scenario.

Talk to real estate agents, investment advisers and even institutional in that specific area for a better picture of what is going on. Don't look at the broad nationwide, statewide or even citywide statistics. Only you concerned with the average prices in the particular neighborhoods in which you buy a house, the average time on the market.

The Prices of Mumbai Property

The real estate/property prices of the commercial capital of India, Mumbai are undergoing a stable increasing trend. The reasons which have impacted the steady upward trend are still the same, starting from the stock market rally to the good investment results, to the stable government and to an overall optimistic and constructive economic scenario.

Like most of the developed countries most of the builders of Mumbai today are giving a lot of quality and value added state of the art services like swimming pools, health clubs and gardens in their projects. The only negative factor today is that there is short stock available with well famed and established property builders in Mumbai. There are few suburban areas where maximum sales are recorded in the past couple of months. Chembur, Wadala, Mulund, Goregaon East, Kandivali East, Powai, Vashi and Thane are some of them. In general the markets in Mumbai look pretty firm; the builders who have under construction projects in good locations with good demand are still mounting their prices as the ratio of demand and supply is always out of balance in Mumbai because of the continuous influx of masses from all over India. Property prices in other cities of India are significantly cheaper than Mumbai because of the lack of balance in the demand and supply of real estate.

Overall the property market in Mumbai is stable; the builders who have under construction projects in prime locations with good demand are still increasing their prices every 2 or 4 months. The prices of property in other cities of India are comparatively very cheap as compare to Mumbai.
Rates of Residential and commercial property in Navi Mumbai have ascended since the Special Economic Zone (SEZ) and the Greenfield airport project in Panvel were commenced. It would be soon a city living in Mumbai's shadow, with its fair share of premium commercial and residential properties, multiplexes, glitzy malls, luxury hotels and big commercial spaces.
As the high tech boom spreads across India, more Indians are interested in buying homes; Mumbai properties attract more and more international and local investors. The real estate surge and boom in development activities in Mumbai have led to a rise in investment in residential and commercial sectors.
