"Should i en-cash my investment in Kharadi?""Mr. Kumar, this is for you! One more safe investment opportunity with a good potential of returns and appreciation in Ahmedabad!"
Mr. Kumar, is in US and may come back after 3/4 years. In 2007, when Kumar was working in Pune, he invested in one of the biggest township at Kharadi, at the property rate of Rs. 2,500 per sq.ft.. In the next month, he is getting a possession of his 3 bhk flat.
"Should i keep the flat or sell it off?," Kumar asked me. He told me that he didn't get any appreciation in the last 2 years and, for sure, because of the recession, he can't expect any in coming 2/3 years.
Kumar is right. Today, the property rate (for the ready possession flat, after the negotiation) of his township at Kharadi, has come down to what it was in 2007!
When i asked Kumar, "Do you have any better investment option?" Kumar told me about an attractive investment option at a very rational property price in Ahmedabad. Sure, his option was really good! There was no scene in remaining invested in Pune real estate market.
"Now, what's the problem?," i asked him. Kumar said, "After 3/4 years, I wish to come back and take a job in Pune!"
Are investors running a way from Pune?Does it means that not only corporates like Tata Motors' Nano, Hindustan Construction Company (HCC) of Lavas but individual "real estate investors" like Kumar, who book today for their future home, are forced to go away from Pune?
Niranjan Hiranandani, Chairman, Hirco Group, in this press release, is openly encouraging the "flight of investment" and inviting them "to relocate" in his project!
Are you thinking on Kumar's line and planning to protect your capital by liquidating your investments in over priced big townships in Pune? Please, share your thoughts in the comment! (Comments Policy)

Mr. Hiranandani further added:
"We continue to execute our strategy, it is a ‘once in a generation’ opportunity to buy real estate in India.Vibrant Gujarat:
The current global credit crisis has significantly impacted the Indian real estate sector not only in land prices but also other raw materials.
We also see a lot less competition in the market from small developers the flight to quality established brands like ours.
Through the latter part of 2009 and early 2010 we will see the market steadily bottom out.
We are also seeing demand from investors who are reallocating their asset portfolios and look at current values as a asset protection tool to preserve capital and fight inflation.
We continue to cautiously take advantage of these once in a generation opportunities."
