Come festival seasons and real estate industry is abuzz with activity. Festival Season has brought rejoice and hope to the people, and the excitement is at the apex. Rakhi, Navratri, Durga Pooja, Dussehra and then Diwali; the festive lights have made a permanent place on the walls of many houses. While buying household things, jewellery, clothes, and the vehicles is a common practice, many people living on the rent are wondering if it is the correct time to invest in the property too. Indeed it is! Although, there is no perfect time to invest in the real estate, this investment is the best one there is. The sale of every commodity gets accelerated during the season of lights, so the modern builders are coming forth with the best of the offers to lure the buyers into making the house buying decision fast. The market and the shops are crowded this time of the year and so is becoming the real estate ‘market’. It is auspicious to buy during this season and wise too. Let us give you some reasons which are compelling enough to get real estate home at festival season.

1. New projects are launching

We all are accustomed to new movie releases on and during the festivals, but the real estate developers are also releasing their magnificent projects on these special occasions. The Indian buyers show more inclination to the affordable housing solutions; hence the projects launched during this time are all seeing the finances of the audiences. The chances of quick selling of such projects increase as the buyers are too motivated to get the keys of their own home.

2. Discounts and Freebies

To sell faster, many builders take the advantage of the willingness to own a property of people. They offer cash discounts on the property or discounts in the form of relaxation on the registration and the stamp duty. The most common free gifts are gold coins, gym or club membership, various vouchers like travel passes, charge free amenities for a period of time etc.

3. Flexible payment options

To inspire the buyers, the builders keep the payment options open during this time. Many people are not comfortable in making the payment upfront. As such some developers offer no EMI for duration of time and some offer payment of balance on the possession. Such great propositions from the builders make the buyers feel like the King of the market.

4. Some extra features for the same price

Except for the cash discounts and freebies, many developers offer special features and furnishings in the house as the festival gifts. It ranges from a free modular kitchen, geysers, and AC units to the free parking space. As such, the buyer is already saving a lot; hence, buying the house becomes the most probable decision.

5. Bonus and the bank offers

You just got your hands on some bonus and what can be a better thing than to buy the house of your dreams. The banks also run various schemes which help the buyers with the lower interest rates on the loans. More money in hand and bank super offers results into the house buying decision for many people. One thing to be kept in mind, though. The builders respond more positively to the end users as compared to the investors. The aim is to provide affordable housing solutions to people and not become a steal deal to fill the pockets of the affluent. With the increasing neck to neck competition among the builders, you can get the best deal within your budget. Buy a property that fits your requirement not because it is available cheaper.

Happy Homebuyers, Karnataka RERA covers many ongoing plans

Homebuyers may stand to benefit from the provisions of the Real Estate (Regulation & Development) Act notified by the Karnataka government on Monday. It, among other things, brings a huge number of ongoing projects under the purview of the law.

The government had come under criticism for the draft rules published last week which said ongoing projects, where 60% development work had been completed or 60% of the apartments/houses/plots had been registered and executed, would not come under the purview of the Act.


If the OC has already been applied for, the building is exempt from RERA regulations.




Buyers felt that the provision gave a leeway to the developers to slip out and there was also confusion as to how a consensus could be reached on such an arbitrary number.

That part seems to have been addressed. As per the notification published on Monday, only ongoing projects “where all development works have been completed as per the Act and certified by the competent agency“are exempted from RERA. The 60% sale lease deed provision stays.

“We were not expecting this, “Shriram Properties managing director Murali said, when asked about his response about the rules. Sobha managing director JC Sharma said though the law is customer friendly, any retrospective law is bad and goes against natural justice. Most of my ongoing projects, where I have not applied for an occupancy certificate, will come under RERA, “Sharma said.

According to the notification, a builder can apply for an OC only if it has been certified by a competent agency -in this case by an architect. If the OC has already been applied for, the building is exempt from RERA regulations. “The rules are stringent because builders have to get in place waterlines, electricity lines and other things before applying for OC, “Suhail Rehman, director of Asse Builders, said.

E Suhail Ahmed, advocate and legal consultant at RERA Consultants, said the rules are not much of a dilution from the central legislation. “They are almost in line with the Act as far as its application to ongoing projects is concerned, “Ahmed said. If a project comes under RERA, buyers would be in a position to file a complaint in case there is a delay or if the building has not gone by the approved plans.
