Housing project self-completion – far-fetched or viable?

The issue of stalled or delayed project is one of the major pain points of the Indian real estate sector currently. With buyers feeling the heat of delays, it is not surprising that some are now considering completing the projects themselves. This falls within the realm of possibility if the project in question has sufficient cash flows but is delayed for other reasons.

Why homebuyers fail to fight builder?

Unfortunately, in the name of common cause the cause is seldom common even though prima facie it appears to be. As a matter of fact, every buyer has his own definition and set of interests to get into a fight with the builder.

Quality & adherence to law key for global brand success: PNC Menon

Backward integration definitely helps and my reason for backward integration is that I have total control over quality. I come from that industry where I had been into contracting for the last 40 years. Real estate for me is only for the last 20 years. I have since beginning worked on very high-end contracts, including design. So, I have the knowledge coming from the grassroot level of contracts. Eventually I thought I should do real estate also while doing contracts outside.

I will sue you; I will silence you

I am also conscious of the fact that no one would dare to file a case. It will only make them a laughing stock and force me to further expose their fault lines and consumer grievances/backlash in the public domain. This is one business where there is always more to conceal than reveal.

Major implications of the GST rate cut

This is a major push to the housing sector as aspiring home buyers now have a wider range of options to choose from. Additionally, developers would be enthused enough to commit towards offering more residential options in the affordable category.

General Elections – the real estate connection
