testimonial Making the Right Real Estate InvestmentBookmark and Share:
  There is no doubt that you will be able to earn a large profit when you decide to make the right real estate investment. However, before you have the opportunity to earn this profit, it is important to know what the right real estate investment is. Here, we will take a closer look at some of the main things that you should think about when determining what you will want to make your real estate investment in. One of the things that you will probably want to think about when making a real estate investment anywhere is the type of real estate that you are investing in. It is important to know what will earn you the largest profit in the area that you are planning on making your real estate investment in. For example, in New York City, you may be able to earn the most money through an apartment complex building as your real estate investment.
   
However, in London, you may be able to earn the most money by investing in a townhouse. While some people prefer making a real estate investment that will earn them immediate cash, others prefer a real estate investment which they will be able to gradually earn money through, such as owning apartments or condominiums that they will rent out. Overall, it is important to make sure that you do the research in order to find out what the most in demand type of real estate is in the area which you are considering before you decide to make a real estate investment that you think will give you the largest return in profit. Next, you will want to consider where you want to make your real estate investment.
   
This may be determined by the type of real estate investment which you are interested in making, or you may want to make an investment in the country that you already live in. Overall, however, the location that you decide to make a real estate investment in can have a huge effect on how high or low your profit can potentially be. Aside from the type of real estate investment you want to make, it is important to determine early on where you will want to make this real estate investment. Lastly, no matter where you live, one of the things that you will want to think about is how much money you put into your real estate investment. Not only do you have to consider the cost of the actual property of your real estate investment, but you will also need to think about the cost of renovations. It is important to make sure that you do not put more money into your real estate investment than what you will be able to earn from it when it comes time to sell. Choosing the right real estate investment is very important. As long as you follow at least some of these tips, you will be one step closer to choosing the real estate investment that is the most suitable for you
   
testimonial Latest Property News on 'Real Estate India':
The year 2009 has been bad for the real estate sector, particularly for the retail sector. While residential real estate picked up in the last two quarters, retail has been seeing very low demand. According to a report by Cushman & Wakefield, of the 44 malls proposed at the beginning of the first quarter of 2009, just about 18 were delivered by the year end. A number of developers postponed mall projects in 2009 but with a revival of demand in the end of the year, 2010 is expected to see a number of mall projects getting back on track.
   
  “The outlook for the retail sector in 2010 is looking brighter. The festive season has been good and has seen a lot more footfalls. As the market picks up, there will be a revival of demand for retail spaces again,” says Rajeev Talwar, executive director at DLF. Year 2009 saw fresh supply of 5.7 million sq ft of mall space. Approximately 9 million sq ft of mall space was deferred to the future,which is a reduction of 60%. Almost 80% of new mall space in Bangalore was postponed which meant the city saw a vacancy of only 3%
   
testimonial Commercial Real Estate can Bounce back in 2010:
  Commercial real estate is hoping for a bounce back in 2010. For 2009 though, the year is ending with a 29% decline in space absorption compared with last year, according to the annual year-end report by real estate consultancy Cushman & Wakefield. The total absorption of commercial space across major Indian cities stood at 26.3 million sq ft in 2009, compared with 37 million sq ft in 2008. This dip was primarily because of a conservative leasing approach by the IT/ITeS sector which accounts for majority of commercial office space taken up (60%) in the country.
   
But the outlook for the coming year is positive. “With the gradual recovery of the economy, the demand for office space is likely to increase by the second half of 2010,” said Sumit Rakshit, executive director, occupier services at Cushman & Wakefield. Corporates have been cautious about expansion in 2009, both because of the recession and also falling office space rentals. Across India, there has been about 4.6 million sq ft of pre-commitments for space due to be absorbed over the next two years. Of this, Bangalore alone accounts for 2.7 million sq ft. This indicates the revival of the IT/ITes segment, which is the mainstay in Bangalore. IT companies are starting to get new contracts which is pushing them to commit to new real estate costs.
   
testimonial Real Estate Recovery Possible by Mid 2010:
   
After hitting a five-year low in fund-raising globally, real estate funds are back on track. A number of new and existing real estate funds are planning to tap domestic and offshore markets to raise funds. The revival of sentiment globally and in the real estate sector has led to funds chasing high net worth individuals (HNIs) and ultra HNIs flush with liquidity. Domestic real estate funds are using this opportunity to expand their existing funds or do a fresh round of fund-raising.
   
  The Piramal group-promoted Indiareit Fund Adviors is planning to raise a Rs 500-crore real estate fund. ASK Investment Advisors, which raised a domestic real estate fund recently, is planning to raise a $250-million offshore real estate fund. Dewan Housing, a player in the housing finance segment, is planning to raise a $250-million real estate fund. Sources said ICICI Ventures was also looking at launching a real estate fund by the fourth quarter of this year. Morgan Stanley, which has a global real estate fund in India, might also look at raising an India-focused real estate fund by the end of this year, sources said
   
testimonial London-based firm to Showcase Residential Project in India to British Investors:
  With the global economy looking up, a London-based firm plans to host a property show to showcase residential projects in India to British investors. The event, organised by real estate agent Hamptons International, will be held Oct 30-Nov 1 at the firm’s head office in London
   
“India has always been a major market for Hamptons International, given the UK’s long and close ties with this country,” said company international sales manager Dean Foley. “We have certainly seen, over the last few months, an upturn in the amount of transactions completing by our UK NRI (non-resident Indian) clients due in part to long term growth plans and affordable real estate,” Foley said.
   
testimonial Indian property bubble:
  The origins of Indian Property Market Bubble can be traced to the interest rate reductions made by the NDA coalition government in the years following 2001. Home Loan Rates fell to a (then) historical lows of 7.5% in early 2004. This prepared the basis for the massive increase in real estate property prices across India. Low interest rates triggered huge interest in individuals to borrow to own their own homes and this triggered an increase in demand for real estate across India.
   
Real estate in Indian metropolises such as Mumbai, Gurgaon and Chennai has sky rocketed to levels comparable with international cities like London.
   
One remarkable point is the real-estate boom in Chennai and its suburbs, leading to high prices in decent housing and then finally prices dropped. For example, an apartment of 1500 square foot in a Chennai suburb will cost around USD 200,000, whereas in Europe similar size costs about USD 450,000. In a class A suburb of New York you can buy a large house for around same amount (450K). Per capita ratio is around 50:1 ($50,000 to $1100); this suggests the presence of a bubble.
