  • Affordable housing to remain in focus in 2019

    “The government push for affordable housing has reaped good dividends for developers in a very short time. For instance, in Bengaluru, a few developers have launched affordable projects on lands which they had earmarked for more premium projects. In Haryana, as per HRERA, around 50,000 units have been launched under the affordable housing scheme of the government. With the right intervention from governments, momentum in the affordable housing segment will continue”, says Maneesh Gupta, Head-Valuation Services at Colliers International India.

  • AFFORDABLE LUXURY!

    “One of the latent needs of the middle-class is to have the luxury at affordable prices. Earlier, luxury was defined as spacious houses, typically a condominium unit, with ultraluxury facilities in the mainland of the city. However, in time, a segment has evolved and a new term has been coined for it- Affordable Luxury. Though the luxury market is still niche, affordable luxury is gaining momentum at a faster clip”, says Amit Chawla, Senior Associate Director, Valuation Services at Colliers International India.

  • The G(i)ST of housing

    "The decision to lower GST will remove the final barriers for fence-sitters from investing in real estate. It will allow a more balanced sale of inventory between under-construction and ready-to-move-in apartments, providing relief to developers, buyers, and lenders. With 1% GST on affordable housing, young buyers and nuclear families in metro cities will be encouraged to deploy savings in real estate, while a wider spectrum of home sales in non-metro cities will now see a significant reduction in cost, thanks to the revised cost and area definition", said Aashish Agarwal, Head-Consulting Services at Colliers International India.

  • North Bengaluru to witness over 140% increase in office stock by 2021

    “We expect Grade A buildings in the area around Hebbal Junction to continue to be in demand due to their proximity to the CBD and ORR while the area around Yelahanka and further north will likely need better social infrastructure and residential density to attract sustained occupier demand,” said Arpit Mehrotra, Senior Director, Office Services (Bengaluru and Hyderabad) at Colliers International India.

  • Rise and rise of office realty

    “We are witnessing robust demand for commercial office space, with healthy leasing momentum to continue for the next three years. We expect the flexible workplace segment to witness traction in the coming years”, says Ritesh Sachdev, Senior Executive Director, Occupier Services at Colliers International India.
