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:

Merits of Shopping in Malls:

• 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.

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.

Home Decor ideas for smaller sized homes

Realty firms these days are emphasizing more on budget homes or cheap flats. These upcoming residential projects are for people with a tight budget, who are also ready to compromise on the size of the house. With the limitation on size in these budget flats / homes, purchasing the right home decor becomes a little tricky. Just because you have a small house doesn’t mean you have to live with basic home decor & furnishing. Modern & trendy home decor stuff used in a right way will make your space look bigger. Try the below mentioned home decor ideas that will make your tiny home space look bigger than ever before:

 

Curvy is the key

Usually these small homes are box in shape. So use your furniture to add curves to the house. Go for a round dinning & centre table. Go for more circular decor articles like round clock, round mirror. Add more oomph by using couches, sofas with slightly curve shape.

 

Use lighter shades:

Be very specific when choosing colors for the house. While dark & deep colors make the room look smaller, light colors make the space look bigger & open up the entire space. If your house already has a dark color scheme, cover it up by using curtains, carpets or rug of lighter shades. If you’re lucky enough to buy a new construction house, make sure the color hues are paid enough importance.

 

Go vertical in your storage

Do not go horizontal or extend sideways in storing things at smaller homes. When space is the major concern, creatively create shelves & place things one over the other. Use the wall space to hang or elevate racks one over the other this not only looks classy but also requires less space.

 

Create depth by adding layers

Add layers to the bed sheets with comforters or pillows & cushions. You can also layer your floor rug by placing one over the other of different shapes. Layering adds depth which can be easily achieved. But that doesn’t mean you just pile things one over the other. Placing cushions or bedding in contrast colors, prints & shapes creates the charm.

 

Use Multipurpose furniture

Using the right kind of furniture that doesn’t occupy too much space is ideal in such homes. Like a Sofa cum Bed that can be folded while watching TV and can be drawn down to make a bed in the night. Smart furniture like foldable dining table or hollow ottoman looks great and also requires less space.
