Smart "Homes" or Smart "Home Owners"?Yesterday, i visited Megapolis, Pegasus Properties', (a joint venture of Avinash Bhosale Group and Kumar Properties), integrated township in Rajiv Gandhi Infotech Park, Phase 3, in Hinjewadi, Pune. This time, i not only visited the site office but, for the first time after the Boomipujan Ceremony, visited the construction site of Megapolis Smart Homes too.
When i first came to know about the pre-launch offer, you know, i was wondering about recommending Megapolis Smart Homes to the real estate investors. While visiting the construction site, i received two phone calls, asking my opinion about Air Castles at Hinjewadi and about an offer to join IT Professionals' Group Housing Project at Sus. After listening to their questions, I started wondering about the term "Smart" in Megapolis Smart Homes! "Who is "smart"? Homes? or Home Owners?
How can i say that "the property rate of Rs. 2,550 for Air Castles is right" when the builder is not offering you water, electricity, drainage, waste management system, safety and security, shopping, public transport, well planned sophisticated neighborhood of more than 100 acres along with your flat? Please, tell me!
Who can say that "the offer to the IT Group Housing is good" when carpet area of a 2 BHK Flat is only 744 sq.ft. but the builder who is famous for "tricks and gimmicks" adds terrace and increases the chargeable area to 1046 sq.ft., asks for 20% of the property price as commitment charges in advance and offers a flat without any essential infrastructural services like water, electricity and road in Sus village! Please, tell me!
Here, at Megapolis Smart Homes, who is smart? Homes? or Home Owners, who booked flats which come with all essential services? Home owners whose 2 BHK Flat of 760 sq.ft. carpet area has only 950 sq.ft. saleable area and don't pay any advance commitment charges to their builder for the favor of constructing homes for them?
Coming back to my visit to the construction site of Megapolis Smart Homes. Though it was a working day, Wednesday, 10 families were at the site office. Obviously, no sales executive had a time to talk to me. However, Pramod, (Pramod Fund, Manager Sales and Marketing, 91-9011009230) obliged and let me visit, along with new homeowners form Kolhapur and Mumbai, 13 acre construction site of Megapolis Smart Homes. Thanks Pramod, it was an exciting experience to see that the construction of all 22 buildings has begun!
Please, have a look at some of the photos, including a closeup of Pramod and a group photo of new homeowners, i shot at the site!
"Smart real estate investor from Kolhapur prefers, non garden facing, 2 BHK Flat on the 1st or 2nd floor, for Rs. 25,83,200!"
"Easy to rent out - better returns on investment!"
