  1. Yeah, with prices so high in real estate, you need to join hands with other to buy a property. Those of you who are waiting for Pune real estate prices to fall further are advised to wait a little longer as builders have lobbied and decided to hike prices marginally (by 100 rs) to scare you into buying soon. they have given all their monies to netas so they need money from you. Wait and watch!!

  2. Assembly elections in Maharashtra are due in just another 4-5 months. So wait and watch. Politicians will need more money from the builders :)
