NEW DELHI: Festive season is traditionally considered to be an auspicious time for buying properties. It is a time when most of the developers launch especial offers including discounts on properties, gold coins on every purchase to organising lucky draws, developers adopt every trick to attract buyers. Naturally, people come out in large numbers to hunt for their dream homes.
With interest rates falling sharply over the last six months and most banks linking their home loan to RBI’s repo rate, there are chances of further reduction in interest rate, the time is near perfect for buyers. Moreover, with property prices remaining almost stagnant in the last couple of years also augurs well for the buyers. Amid the favourable conditions, developers are expected to report decent sales numbers even without offering ‘expensive’ return gifts.
“With the onset of the festive season, end customers, as well as developers, look forward to making the most of it. Festival season begins from Ganesh Chaturthi and lasts till Diwali. It’s considered most auspicious time to invest. It is the time when developers offer many offerings and freebies to attract buyers and push their selling. On the other hand, buyers consider festival season as an auspicious time to own a property. Bhumika Group a leading name in commercial real estate in north India offering assured gift on every booking with inaugural discount in its project Urban Square Galleria located in Alwar and a gold coin on every booking in Rajasthan’s largest mall Urban Square located in Udaipur” says Uddhav Poddar, MD, Bhumika Group.
Data Available with PropTiger.com show that home sales during the festive season invariably increase for a variety of reasons. In the October-December quarter of FY19, for instance, home sales increased by 30%. While sales volumes decreased in the quarters that followed, they are expected to see an upward movement during the upcoming festive season. While the liquidity crunch and a ban on subvention schemes might keep developers from launching mega festive discount offers that typically are a big attraction for buyers during the festive season, the reduction in interest rates and easy availability of ready-to-move-in affordable homes are likely to be the big drivers of demand during the festive season this year.
“With the repo rate at a 9-year low, banks have substantially reduced home loan interest rates to a record low level. Data available with PropTiger.com show that over 4 lakh ready to move in housing units lying unsold in nine major property markets are priced within the Rs 45 lakh bracket. Investing in these units would allow additional savings in the form of an increased tax deduction limit of Rs 1.50 lakh on interest paid on a home loan as announced in the Budget in July. The upcoming festive season could be an interesting period to take advantage of these factors as well as potential deals that might be available from developers” says Dhruv Agarwala, Group CEO, Housing.com/Makaan.com/PropTiger.com.
The upcoming festive season would see the launch of Mega Home Utsav from Housing.com starting 25th September 2019. To make home buying more lucrative than ever before, this year Housing.com will be giving away a mega cash prize of Rs. 30 lac to one lucky home buyer along with 1 lac cash prize each to 50 lucky home buyers who register during the event.
