Neemrana – The next big real estate destination

DELHI: It has been proposed that Neemrana, Shahjahanpur and Bahrod be included as three sub-metropolitan cities in the National Capital Region (NCR). Surprised?

Not all deserve enough to be included in the Delhi-NCR and hence, there would be strong rationale for that. Here, we will discuss what has led to this being proposed. Our analysis is for the perspective of the retail real estate investor, hoping to make decent returns over a tenure, with some odds in his favour.

In the current recessionary scenario where property prices are heading towards the downward spiral across cities, everyone is scouting for the best option to invest in the real estate space. In this scenario, there are two aspects that a real estate investor should keep in mind – ‘the price point of entry’ and ‘location & type of property’.

Gurgaon in the Delhi-NCR space has always been on a real estate investment destination map. However, lately with the rising real estate prices and recessionary environment it may no longer be an ideal investment option available or even qualify for being in the first three choices for real estate investments. Amid such a scenario, a real estate investor has to take an objective and long term view of the real estate investment.

From an investment perspective, it is better to identify satellite towns or cities that are coming up around Delhi-NCR with promising prospects. We have heard about the Gurgaon-Manesar-Bhiwadi-Neemrana-Jaipur belt being developed. These satellite cities/towns can be seen as the Dwarka-Gurgaon Expressway of yesteryears, providing an ideal price point of entry. Here, I would cover Neemrana, the least heard about as an investment destination.

Till a couple of years back, Neemrana was known as the tourist destination only with Neemrana Fort attracting foreign and domestic tourists. However, change in the state government policies with respect to setting up of businesses and attracting foreign companies to set up businesses, turned the tide for Neemrana. This was also because the place was marked by the government for setting up of business and supporting residential units, not to speak about necessary infrastructure support that will come up to support both of them.

Here, we are considering the DMIC (Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor), wherein it has been decided to include Neemrana and Kushkheda, in the first phase, with development of industrial townships here on the lines of Noida, Faridabad and Gurgaon.

The sample flat trap
Nov 23, 2013
DELHI: Home buyers apportion every paisa of their personal savings and income for making a single, lifetime investment and hence have the need to save as much as they can. It is this penny-pinching that developers and real estate agents exploit by offering buttery schemes, freebies and other features to lure customers. At face value, a majority of these options seem attractive. However, when the gloss wears off, these schemes are seen to be riddled with nasty traps.
