Things that you should know about RERA

RERA has been set to change the paradigm of real estate industry. With the new alterations in the Regulation Act has in fact benefitted the real estate consumers beneficially. Along with it, the addition of GST has benefitted the Indian real estate market exponentially. With the hype and long-awaited modifications in act, budget homes and affordable housing will see rise of demand. Although the hype and news might seem complicated, the Act is pretty straight and convenient to understand. With the addition of GST link up in the current trend, budget homes are bound to take over the real estate market. Maha RERA has created a fright amongst many top builders in Pune.

Apart from budget home consumers, GST has set to ease the norms over the builders. With back-to-back duration of RERA and GST, the most common 1 and 2 BHK homes have eased on their land prices. Therefore, the center chooses to relax the land pricing and thus boost the market of budget homes. Apart from Pune, the prime locations of PCMC like Moshi, Chikhali and Dudulgaon have seen a drastic drop in pricing of apartment lands. The basic impact of GST and RERA has effectively neutralized the taxes in real estate sector. The following has been altered to release the dump of unwanted pile-on in the supply inventory of residential sector.

Following are the basic RERA rules that everybody will benefit from:

Developers have to incur own construction cost from laying the foundation to up to three floors.

Any change in layout plan in any of the buildings should be conveyed and approved from the customers. Therefore, if you need to change the plan of 1 BHK to 2 BHK, the customers will have the right to approve or disapprove over the same.

Whatever needs to be delivered, should be strictly mentioned in the agreement. Therefore, even the minor things that the developers or builders may feel is negligible cannot be ignored in the agreement.

Although most of the rules and regulations are favored for the consumers and affordable housing customers is what RERA has defined itself as, the boon and benefit for the developers and builders is the GST. With a right treatment and relaxation of tax proportion, the builders can effectively make good bargains in budget home projects.<

Till date, many builders have invested their profile in budget homes, however, the supply and more misfortune acts in real estate have still slowed down the pace for them. The RERA and GST impact aims to change the paradigm of affordable housing and real estate sector of Pune, Maharashtra and as a whole nationally. With this whole new perspective, real estate sector will see the best practices that are necessary for the consumers. The rise of this sector will in fact edge a new horizon of Indian economy as well. Therefore, although PCMC has always marked a developed twin city of Pune, with these new norms there will be more convenient and beneficial growth and satisfaction for both parties; the customers as well as the developers and the builders.

The preferable pick between Street Shopping and Mall shopping

Shopping is one thing that makes every woman happy. Though the person paying the bill usually our fathers, husbands may hate the very thought of it, but women love it anyway. Shopping in any form is loved. Mall shopping, street shopping or even window shopping satisfies the cravings. Previously, shopping meant street shopping or for riches it meant standalone shops which fancy clothes on the mannequin. Food i.e. vegetables, grains or fruits were always shopped from local markets/ bazaars ie sabji mandis, baniya shops.

But today with the advent of the Mall culture things have changed. With the change in lifestyle of people, the way one shops also has gradually changed. Shopping clothes in malls and food in supermarkets is the latest trend everyone wants to follow. With more employment opportunities came more purchasing power which led to the affordability of mall shopping.

Shopping in traditional markets has its own fun. This shopping culture is still prevalent in our cities. Though the novelty of malls has charmed people but the conventional markets still prevail in large numbers and top the shopping destination list of people. The need of both the worlds is equal. Let’s read through the merits of shopping in traditional markets and malls.

Merits of Shopping in Local Street Market/ Traditional Market:

• Street shopping is affordable i.e. inexpensive products on sale that can be purchased by all classes.
• Price can always be bargained. Customer can pay the amount he feels is right for the product.
• More room for innovative and variety of stuff yet at cheaper rates.
• Fresh food is available without being stored for days.
• Walking around the huge market in natural environment definitely lets you lose some calories.
• Visiting these markets is never a bad idea as parking and transportation is easily available.
• Market is pretty unpredictable. Unexpectedly you may get some really good picks at cheaper rates.
• Wholesale market in terms of food products is pretty cheaper than the regular market rate or mall rate.

Merits of Shopping in Malls:

ShoppingCart-850x476

• Malls usually have all commodities under one roof which leads to super convenience of individuals.
• Myriad national and international brands all available at one place.
• Under each product category, different brand options available.
• Saves time and transportation cost as you don’t have to go from one shop or street to the other.
• Quality of the products is better than the ones found in the market.
• Payment options are many i.e. via Credit card, Debit card, Cash vouchers and online transfers.
• Seasonal discounts deals available.
• One can try the outfits before actually buying them.

Both, the mall and the local market have equal benefits and are established for the convenience and well being of people. Having these closer to home is a blessing. It’s convenient to have a house close to the market or mall as daily requirements and emergencies cannot be anticipated. Even at the time of buying a house one should ensure that these facilities are around your living space. Essential commodities for daily needs should be easily available at the doorstep. Builders these days are constructing projects that far away from the city limits. These projects do not have access to any lifestyle centers where a person can purchase these daily essentials.

A little divergent from the rest is Aksha Group, a renowned and top builder of Pune and PCMC having many upcoming residential projects in Pune. With nearly 5 projects in prime location of PCMC, Aksha Group has projects in the localities where all requirements in daily life are easily available. From markets & malls to hospitals and schools and recreational centers all are easily accessible from Aksha Groups projects. Their assorted project list includes 1 & 2 BHK flats in Moshi, 1 & 2 BHK flats in Dudalgaon and Chikhali. To know more about their projects, log onto http://akshagroup.com/project.html

Effects of Demonetization on real estate sector

On November 8, 2016 when Prime Minister Narendra Modi, declared to the entire nation about discontinuation of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes from midnight, the whole nation was shocked from this revelation. There was chaos everywhere, as people started to panic about the effects of demonetization on day to day life. Long & never ending queues stood outside banks & ATMs. There have been mixed reactions of people to this decision by our PM due to the hardships it has caused to common people but majority of them have reacted in the most overwhelming way.

Demonetization – the biggest news of 2016!!

Though the real motive behind it was to abolish the black money & also eliminate the fake currency from the market. In the long run this will definitely help to stabilize the country’s economy and also secure our nation from illegal actions. The effect of it has been different of varied sectors. Obvious ones are; inflation will drop down drastically, which will lead to the reduction the prices of various goods & services. Bank will have more deposits which will reduce the interest rates on loans & eventually due to payment of taxes; the government will have more money to spend of infrastructure & development of the country.

The Real estate sector is one of the sectors that has got affected drastically due to this move. Let’s read below the effects of Demonetization on real estate sector:

Homes loans getting cheaper: With more deposits being done in the bank, the fund holding of the bank has gone up in shorter span of time. This in turn will decrease the home loan interest rates significantly. The expected rate of interest would be between 8% to 10% on home loan in the year 2017.

Transparency: Due to the introductions of RERA’s amendments and demonetization affecting this sector back to back, there will much transparency in the transactions as all the payments will be made in white.

More Demand: Since home loan will get cheaper, the demand for houses will increase as the purchasing power will be in the hands of the buyers. Also the unsold inventories may come down since demand will increase.

Opportunities of foreign investment: With improvements and transparency in the economy there may be room for more foreign investments in the sector.

On the various points mentioned above, the real estate developers in Pune had a different take on each. Aksha Group, having many new construction projects in Pune, was much happy with the effects of Demonetization and implementation of RERA. Their 1, 2 and 3 BHK flats in Moshi – Chikali, Pune are a paradise to every home buyer. Affordable, comfortable & various payment schemes for the buyer’s makes this group much loved and trusted developer in Moshi & Chikali, PCMC.

Real Estate Regulations Act [RERA] a boon to home buyers

The Real Estate Regulations Act was formed by the Parliament of India in May 2016. This much awaited Act was passed, mainly in the interest of home buyers. This move is expected to benefit the home buyers a lot. The rules stated under RERA apply for both real estate as well as commercial projects. But the million dollar question is, will it bring transparency in the system as expected?
Developers around the country have mixed reactions to RERA. Some of them are happy with the law while some of them are finding it difficult to survive. Aksha Group, one of the top builders with lot many new construction projects in Pune seemed to be very happy with the formation of RERA Act. Their Chairman, said that transparency in the real estate sector was very much needed. Developers like Aksha Group who have always been honest & transparent with their buyers are happy that the buyers will start trusting the developer more now. There is no scope of fraudulent acts anymore. Aksha Group has 1, 2 BHK flats in Moshi, Chikhali, Pune
.

Let’s read through the some of the outstanding features in the statute


rera-tridentrealty

Registration of projects:

Pre registration of the projects above 500 sq meters is compulsory. All the documentation has to be done before the registration process starts. The entire registration process will start only once the documentation is done. After approval from authority on documentation the developer will receive a registration number.

No Pre-Launch sale of projects :

Builders cannot go ahead and the launch the project without the registration number & approvals on registration. The sale of property before registration ie usually “PRE-LAUNCH” offer will be history now. This is definitely good news for buyers.

Sale of Projects on Carpet size area only:

Buyers usually get confused over what exactly is the carpet area of the house. Carpet Area is the net usable floor area of an apartment, excluding the area covered by the external walls, areas under services shafts, exclusive balcony or verandah area and exclusive open terrace area, but includes the area covered by the internal partition walls of the apartment.
This will get transparency to the buyers as they will exactly know what they are getting. They wouldn’t at least get confused with the Carpet Area being the Saleable Area.

Restriction on use of funds:

RERA has made it compulsory for the builders to deposit 70% of the amount received from the buyers in a separate account which will be used for that specific project only. This will ensure that the buyer’s money doesn’t get misused. In case the developer is short of finance for some part of the project he will have to approach financial institute himself.

Delay in possession:

Incase the builder fails to give possession before the specified date, the buyer has full right to withdraw his money from the project. The developer will give full refund along with interest. In case they still want to continue then the developer will give interest every month to the buyer till possession.

Penalty on false advertisements:

In case the developer doesn’t give facilities to the home buyers as per the advertisements given by him or the developer gives false promises & doesn’t comply to it then the home buyers can withdraw their amount and will also get it along with interest.

Insurance of Land & Construction:

As per the norms laid by RERA, it is compulsory for developers to get the insurance for the land title as well as the building insurance for the construction part. This cost will definitely be thrown in the buyer’s kitty. This clause still has to be made in the insurance companies as well.

Let’s hope RERA will bring in some positive changes in the system.

Ways to beat the chilly winters

With festivals and New Year being just round the corner, December is the month to rejoice. In India, this part of the year is the coldest and hence we love to stay warm and curl up in our blankets. Though people nag about the weather in this season, its one of my favorite season. People wear layers of warm clothes to keep themselves warm, definitely replicating the trends we watch on our favorite English TV series.Sun setting a little earlier and chilled evenings, Pune has always experienced such weather and hence it has been on everyone’s favorite list. We at Aksha Group understand the difficulties everyone faces in such seasons and hence we create abodes that are cosy, warm and protective. Having 1, 2 and 3BHK flats in Pune for sale, currently we are considered as one of the top builders of Pune. Our upcoming residential projects feature 1 and 2 and 3 BHK in Moshi, Chikhali for sale.

Here’s how we think we you can beat the winter blues:

Use darker shade curtains with thicker fabric:Replace your curtains with darker shades curtains. Dark shade curtains will help to absorb sunlight and also keep the room warm. Keep the curtains drawn in the evenings so that air doesn’t pass in. Thicker fabrics will create obstacle for chilly air.

Change your food styles: Include more warming vegetables in your diet that provide warmth and nourishment.Carrot,potatoes,radish are a good pick.Dry fruits like dates and nuts are good. Poultry and sea food are full of rich proteins and are the ideal food for winters. In the evenings go for piping hot soups to maintain the balance in diet. Hot tea and coffee are also very helpful. Winter is the perfect season to stay home. Eating the right food and having a good comfortable sleep is what we think winter is about. Use this time to snuggle up in your blanket and read your favorite book or watch your favorite movie. Stay indoors and spend some quality time with your loved ones. Winter will go away before we even know so make sure you have some winter fun before the heat again sets in.

Pune the newest avenue for home buyers

Pune- a vibrant and thriving city situated in the western Indian state of Maharashtra. Pune was once upon a time called a “pensioner’s paradise”.People looked upto this city for peace and serenity. This city has grown exponentially to a centre of academic, IT hub, business and entertainment. Presently it is the city with youngest crowd. It tops the favorite list because of its proximity to hill-stations, forts, adventurous parks, resorts and not to forget places of pilgrimage too.
Lately, Pune has also become the hottest place to invest due to the presence of multinational companies in here. Young Indians from different parts of the country working in these multinational companies have made this city home. This in return has increased the demand for houses increasing residential projects relatively.

Let’s figure out why investing in Pune is a good deal:

Improved Infrastructure and facilities:

This city has been on a massive development juncture since centuries. Conscious efforts are made by the Civic body to provide the best of infrastructure in terms of roads and their connectivity. Pune is easily connected by road, rail and airways. Having multiple options in every transport mode makes it an easily accessible place.
In terms of residential projects, some of the best new construction is happening in Pune. Builders like Aksha group are providing cheap flats in Pune which include 1, 2 and 3 BHk flats in Moshi and Chikali, Pune.

Oxford of the east:

Being called the,”oxford of the east”, because of its excellent quality of education. The presence of some of the top colleges in different fields like medical, engineering, theater, IT and creativity makes this place a one stop solution to all. Not to forget Pune’s own university, Pune University is regarded as one of the best universities in India.

Booming IT hub:

The setup of some of the biggest IT companies in Pune is the primary reason why the investment in Pune is booming. Huge brands are coming to the city which has increased the employment rate. More job opportunities in decreasing the unemployment which is a positive factor.

Climatic Conditions:

Known for the best climatic conditions, usually evenings are cool and breezy throughout the year. Monsoon is the best time to explore the surrounding areas of the city. Winters are chilly and fun.

Lot of Greenery:
To balance the rapid developments of residential project a constant check is kept on the greenery part of city. There are lush green trees by the roads of the city. Areas like Koreagaon park, Salisbury park and Sinhagad etc are green and beautiful which adds to the serenity of the city.

Safety :
Being of the youngest city which also mentioned above, it’s still a safer place. Women find it safe and secure to even roam about at 12 in the night. Thanks to the Pune city Police who are on a continuous drive throughout the city.

Keeping all the above factors in mind the residential sector is booming due to the high demand of homes. Top builders of the city like Aksha Group, are constantly on a roll to provide some of the best projects in the city. Featuring 1, 2 and 3 cheap flats in Pune, they are providing budget homes to people who dream of having their own house in a city like Pune. Attracting both domestic and international buyers of property in Pune.

Benefits of purchasing a 2 BHK house

Living in a city like Pune and owing your own house is a proud feeling in itself. When people own a property they leave no opportunity to flaunt it. Project amenities, location are always a point of discussion. For a young couple to who has purchased the house with their hard earned money is like a dream come true. They call it a dream home.

Usually couples or smaller families go for 1 BHK homes keeping in mind their finances. That one bedroom, hall, kitchen and bathroom is perfect for small families or very few people like 3 friends staying in. But if there are more people living, then 2BHK is the only rescue. If finance is pretty sorted for you, then you should definitely consider a 2 BHK apartments with Aksha Group – one of the top builders in Pune who has comfortable 2 BHK apartments in nearly 7-8 projects of theirs.


2 BHK is preferred over 1 BHK, why ?

More Space: Purchasing a 2BHK than 1BHK definitely gives you more space. The total carpet area increases along with the added bedroom and Bathroom. You can also use this additional space to recreate and pick hobbies that you always wanted to. Create a gallery or library there, make it a dance room and groove to your favorites there.

Additonal Amenities: When you purchase a 2 BHK the developer always gives additional benefits to the 2BHK and 3 BHK owners. Like n extra parking space or more member reservation at the club house events or maybe a bigger balcony. It comes like a package, bigger the house, more are the amenities and comforts. Like at Aksha Group the builder has numerous 2BHK flats project in Dudalgoan and has given top line amenities like Amphitheater, Jogging track, Yoga and meditation hall, Gym, Party Lawn etc.

Perfect for Future: Whether you’re a married couple or single 2BHK will be a good option for you because the family will always grow in future with new relations. Also there is a possibility of family, guests and friends coming over. When finalizing upon the flat always keep the project location on a priority. When living with family, the house should have easy connectivity to important places of the city. In this regard, Aksha Group has all their projects in the central parts of the city like Moshi, Chikhali with has direct access to Spine road.

Resale value: We purchase a house with the intention of living in it forever and creating some amazing memories in there, but for any circumstances if you have to sell the house then 2BHK flats are easy to sale and chances are always high that there will be appreciation in the rates of the property.
