About Sunteck’s 1.5 Billion Rupee Investment In Mumbai’s Properties

Dec 21 2018

Sunteck Realty, the leading developer firm has had its eyes on Mumbai’s result driven real estate investments already before the start of 2018. The property giant is now ready to invest as much as 1500 crores in rental properties of Goregaon to acquire office and retail space measuring around 2.6 million sq. ft.

With have raised about 650 crore with the help of a qualified institutional placement (QIP), the firm is now eyeing to take the revenue income to about 500 crore annually by investing in the given real estate. The firm has been around in the city long enough to qualify as a key investor and also owns a 23 acre area of land called the Sunteck City.

Rental Office Space Sector

The feat marks a significant milestone in Sunteck’s plan of capitalizing on the hot favorite real estate segment in Mumbai right now – the office space. The realty firms already runs about 2,00,000 sq ft area of office space that generates about 20 crore annually. After seeing heavy investments made by ICICI bank and foreign giants into the same sector, the trend seems to continue quite healthily.  

“We want to build a huge rental portfolio which is currently missing. The top global funds are aggressively for quality commercial assets. There is a huge demand for commercial office buildings and we may decide to REIT from that portfolio,” chairman, Sunteck Realty, said in an interview.

Entry into Affordable Housing

Recently, Sunteck has acquired 100 acre of land in Mumbai’s metropolitan area to welcome their new projects aimed at developing affordable housing society. This step is taken in the light of the fact that affordable housing is one of the key trends in real estate sector that is expected to hog in profits for developers as the demand for the same continues to rise.

The newly acquired land will be used to develop about 10 million square of sealable land that will act as a township for local residents. This deal is another feather in the hat for Sunteck realty who is expecting a net revenue of 5500 crores with this investment.

The project will be completed in coming six years and will be equipped with all the latest facilities one expects from such a project. Adding appropriate facilities to the affordable apartments, and shrinking down on covered area has been a favorable tactic that real estate developers are employing to keep the costs under check.

“This project marks our entry into the affordable housing segment and we will be developing it under a separate brand to differentiate it from the rest of our projects,” chairman Kamal Khetan told PTI. [source]

How is real estate Mumbai still a good investment option?

Dec 20 2018


Although Indian real estate scenario has been a tumbling ride with occasional crest and troughs, the upcoming time could be a great news for investors. Especially in Mumbai, which is blooming with hundreds of new development projects. In a report by Forbes, it is clearly mentioned how big-time investors are making their move to strengthen the property sector of India.

In the recent turn of events, when the demonetization of certain currency notes took place in India, the overall business growth was hit, but the country is expected to overcome it within the first two quarters. So, now is the time when you can consider investing in Mumbai’s promising properties and find the home you would adore for your life.

Let’s look at how NRI real estate brokers propose, investing in real estate in Mumbai can be one of the better decisions you would make.

Big Ongoing Investments

World’s biggest investor, Blackstone, after staying away from India’s property scenario has now finally showed some interest in it and has made promising investments weighing as much as $600 million. Future plans of Blackstone signify setting up of a local REIT listing, as this report by Times of India states.

Next comes Brookfield Asset Management, who have allegedly invested a hefty amount of $1 billion in Mumbai’s real estate. Both of these headlines point to the fact that Mumbai is receiving serious consideration from all over the world and the growth of property rates will be inevitable, telling us that NRI investment in real estate would be worthwhile in the coming few years.

Commercial Demands

With a horde of MNCs looking to set-up their offices in the financial capital of the country, the growth of business parks and corporate office spaces has been on an all-time high in Mumbai. This is being backed by development in Mumbai’s outskirt areas where property is seeing new light in both commercial as well as residential demands.

Post GST Impacts

The implementation of GST in most parts of the country has resulted in huge outcry due to its complicated system of operation but in Maharashtra, it is supposed to bring an air of freshness for investors. GST will enable easy and profitable sale of properties in Mumbai that fall under the status of  “completed projects”. For the projects that are still under development will benefit from the tax relaxations on the raw materials levied by GST. This is good news for NRIs as well as domestic investors.

Future Returns

All of the above listed factors contribute towards a future full of good returns. Mumbai’s real estate is rapidly blooming and as it continues to grow, the investments made today will reap in benefits in the future, although not so early. Hence, if you are looking to invest in property, now is the time.

Moving to Mumbai? 5 Tips to select the right location to rent a house in Mumbai

Dec 17 2018

When moving to Mumbai, the most important decision is to identify the location of your new rented accommodation, irrespective of whether you are moving with or without your family. Many professionals locating to Mumbai without family assume that they can crash land and survive anywhere in this city. But the equation is not so simple especially when it comes to settling in the Maximum City.

Before you start finding and shortlisting apartments on rent, here are some do’s and dont’s which we hope helps you in making the right decision while selecting the location.

Conveniently Commutable Distance From Rented Apartment To Work

Where is your work location? Is it in South Mumbai, Western Suburbs, and Central Mumbai? You can find flats on rent in Mumbai anywhere and everywhere, but consider daily commuting that will become a part of your life as a Mumbaikar from the day you join your office. Choose a location which is closer to work so that you can save your energy and travel time. If rates are higher than your allocated budget for rented property, then you can consider settling down in the surrounding areas. For example, if your office is in BKC, you could find accommodation in Bandra East, Tilak Nagar, Kalina,etc.

Easy Access To School or College

While you would travel to work, if you are moving to Mumbai with your family, then your kids would travel to school or college. There could be a trade-off between the proximity of your rented premises to your office vis-a-vis how close you want your home to be to the college or school that your kids would be attending in Mumbai. But the point is same- travel time.

Picking The Right Neighborhood For Your Rented Accommodation

Find out how safe is the neighborhood for you and your family. In Mumbai, within the same area, you will notice that sometimes even within the same locality or area, the world changes between two lanes. So it is advisable that you personally go with your real estate agent and take a quick scan of the immediate neighborhood yourself. Other than safety, check the facilities and infrastructure available in that area including but not limited to healthcare, shopping, restaurants, entertainment, etc.

Finding The Right Rented Place At The Right Rate

It goes without saying that do your due diligence in identifying the running rental rates in and around the residential areas which you shortlist. Hire a trusted real estate consultant who would educate you about the city. Alternatively, you may also check the reckoner rate for those areas. Reckoner rate is an official rate varying with areas, properties,etc and it serves as a good benchmark for property buyers and sellers.

Good Connectivity With The Rest Of The City

This point overlaps with first three points- proximity to work, education centre, entertainment, medical facilities and shopping centers to say the least. But since we are talking about Mumbai where travel time is not calculated merely by distance but also by judging the state of traffic and time of the day, so we think connectivity deserves a special mention here. Local trains are the lifeline of Mumbai, but at the same time it is not everyone’s cup of tea and especially not so easily acceptable by outsiders moving to Mumbai. Unlike Delhi, Mumbai goes straight, so does the road connecting one end to the other along the coast. Roads are not very wide as one would expect from a flourishing metro, hence frequent traffic jams. So connectivity is an important aspect which you must evaluate before you sign the rental agreement with your new landlord!

Conclusion

People moving to Mumbai must consider short listing the location even before looking at properties on rent. Take help from your property broker to understand the city and at the same time explain him the types of residential areas you would prefer. That along with the proximity to work and other facilities must be considered well before even you start meeting prospective landlords.
