Why Real estate price are still going Up?
You must be thinking that why real estate price are going up. Home loan rates are increasing, economy is observing downturn and real estate price are growing!
We are herewith few pointers in this direction.
(1) Black Money:-
India is stated as one of the most corrupt country in world. In India only 4-5% of population pay taxes. And perhaps black economy of India is larger than actual economy. Real estate market is governed by black money.
Corrupt politicians, Businessman actually hold & produces large amount of black money. They park that black money in to real estate sector and hence real estate price are going up.
(2) Growing Infrastructure:-
India is fastest growing country in terms of Infrastructure. Lot of infrastructure development projects are being executed now a day. With increase in infrastructure and facility it is quite obvious that real estate price will likely to increase.
This quarter price rise is observed in Chennai, Pune, Hyderabad, Ahmedabad, Banglore and Delhi, where major development and infrastructure projects are in progress.
(3) Prospective Investors are ready to pay more:-
Property purchase is done either for living purpose or for investment. Today property is purchase is done mostly for investment.
In city like Chennai, Pune, Hyderabad, Ahmedabad, Banglore and Delhi, prospective investors are ready to pay more due to growth in purchase power & Income.
That is the reason that real estate price are growing in these cities.
Will this trend continue?
Well it is very difficult to predict real estate market. One needs to consider multiple factors for predicting market.
I am not real estate expert and will not predict anything about real estate market but from past history I can say that real estate is one of the safe investment options and will likely to give good return in future.
I should buy Property or wait?
