pharande spaces logoWith the Pune real estate market now counting among the most vibrant and attractive property investment destinations in the country, the focus is now squarely on which regions and real estate typologies are in highest demand by end users and investors. West Pune has emerged as a clear winner. One of the major global industrial hubs, West Pune is a dynamic economic generator drawing power from its massive cluster of mechanical, automotive and information technology clusters.

Integrated townships have become the most preferred residential real estate configuration in Pune, and Punawale in West Pune is now home to what is by far the most luxurious as well as future-ready townships of its kind. Puneville, the masterpiece of luxurious township living by Pharande Spaces, has completely redefined the West Pune real estate landscape. Conceived and executed in partnership with globally acclaimed architects Aedas, this ultra-luxurious project is the culmination of Pharande Spaces’ constant quest towards perfection in township development.

Puneville has been created to be the penultimate statement in luxurious township living,” says Anil Pharande, Chairman – Pharande Spaces. “We have spared no effort, expense or stretch of imagination to make it the most desirable residential address in Pune, and we have succeeded. The response from end users and investors has been unprecedented. By design and intent, Puneville is a unique creation that has no peers. Here in West Pune, we have given the city its ultimate real estate destination.”

Puneville consists of 16 towers, each with 23 storeys of uniquely crafted living spaces. In keeping with its elite ethos, its 2, 3 and 4BHK apartments are equipped with highest quality fittings, fixtures and marble flooring, sourced from leading manufacturers in Europe and Asia. The outdoor perfectly complements the interiors with every conceivable luxury feature, including Olympic-sized swimming pools for every cluster of buildings, landscaped gardens, tennis courts and a jogging track.

Puneville also features a completely unique sky walkway that circumnavigates the residential towers, effectively connecting all the towers to a central green area and children play zones.

Is Pune ready for such a luxurious, futuristic township?

“Absolutely,” says Anil Pharande. “Luxury living in Pune is driven primarily by its burgeoning Information Technology sector – and in terms of what buyers from this segment expect from their luxury homes, the stakes are extremely high. At the same time, integrated townships have emerged as the most desirable residential real estate offering, since they offer self-contained and self-sustained infrastructure as well as all the ingredients of a modern, convenient lifestyle. Puneville is the perfect marriage of residential luxury in a full-fledged township environment in West Pune, which is now the city’s most sought-after real estate investment precinct.”

Be A Smart Property Buyer With A Pre-approved Home Loan

Anil-Pharande

 

 

 Anil Pharande, CMD – Pharande Spaces

Home buyers, and especially first-time buyers, would like to be in the best position to make their purchase once they have identified their dream home. The most challenging aspect of home ownership is invariably financing. Questions like which lending institution to approach, what loans should be applied for, how much loan to be applied for and how much time will it take for approval need to be answered.

ApprovedStamp

The best ‘be prepared’ move on this front is to become pre-approved for a home loan. Doing so means that this tricky and time-consuming aspect of home purchase has already been dealt with, and that one can enter the market focused squarely on the best options. Getting pre-approved also puts you in the strongest possible place when it comes to negotiating the best deal.

 

What is the difference between loan pre-qualification and pre-approval?

Pre-qualification for a home loan is more or less like an educated estimate provided by the lending company. They will be letting you know the type of loan you could qualify for, and the maximum amount. The estimate is usually based on your financial history, loan eligibility and buying power. A pre-approval, on the other hand, is a written confirmation by the lender.

Before handing over the pre-approval certificate, loan officers will completely access your employment and remuneration information and do a complete ‘credit-worthiness’ check. This involves collecting all the data related to your past and current debts, repayment history, disposable income, credit card record, etc. and running it through software that will calculate whether you could be a likely candidate for approval.

How to secure a pre-approved home loan?

While seeking to become pre-approved, it is always best to approach a lending company that you know or can be referred to by a friend, colleague or family member. The lender needs have the assurance that you are a credible borrower. However, do not stop searching after you have met the first possible lender.

Ask around and look for the lending institutions that that provide the most competitive interest rates and are known for their helpful customer service. The loan officer from the identified lending institute will then pay you a visit and help you streamline your financial statements so that you become ready to discuss your bank statements, investments, holdings, salary slips, income tax returns and other information related to your finances. This basically starts the process which will end with you becoming a pre-approved borrower.

What good will a letter of pre-approval do?

Firstly, a pre-approval letter lets you know the exact budget range you should be searching in. This helps you stay in sync with your financial reality and keeps you from allowing your focus to stray to properties that you cannot afford. Secondly, having a pre-approval letter means that you can grab an offer immediately when it comes across and is in your budget range.

The letter states that the finances are ready when you choose to ask for them. Important Note: it is highly advisable to work with lenders who have the ability to provide customized pre-approval letters, inclusive of the maximum purchase price. Sellers could get greedy if they see a greater loan amount than their quote.

Getting pre-approved for a home loan is a crucial step that can put you in the best possible position in the home buying process. It will give you both peace of mind and keep you focused on what what to look for and what to avoid in terms of affordability.

Gudi Padwa: The Festival of Renewal and Property Investment

Anil-Pharande

 

 

Anil Pharande, CMD – Pharande Spaces

India is a country of myriad traditions and festivals that are not only times of celebration but in many cases also major investment decisions. As a result, many market segments are also aligned to these periods. The Gudi Padwa festive season is among the periods of intense real estate market activity, because this period is traditionally seen as one of renewal and forward planning.

Gudi Padwa is a celebration of the coming of spring, during which nature once again delivers its gift of abundance after the largely barren winter months. In fact, this period is celebrated by almost every culture in the world in some form or the other. But probably nowhere with as much joy and fervour as in India, which is a country with very strong agrarian roots. It is no accident that Gudi Padwa coincides with many festivals all over India, from Baisakhi in Punjab, Puthandu in Tamil Nadu, Yugadi in Andhra Pradesh and Vishu in Kerala.

The cross-linkage of Gudi Padwa with real estate purchase is by no means a latter-day phenomenon – this trend has been in evidence since historical times. India is a country where certain times of the year as seen as very auspicious for any activity related to investment and wealth creation. A self-owned home is the biggest and most important investment for most Indian families, and the Gudi Padwa festive period invariably sees significantly increased property purchase activity.

This year, Gudi Padwa coincides with many other favourable market dynamics. Very much in keeping with the spirit of spring which Gudi Padwa celebrates, India has emerged from a prolonged period of political uncertainty and economic doldrums. A strong and resolute government has taken charge, and the Indian economy is visibly reviving. Across the country, Indians have put job insecurity and indecisiveness about their future goals behind them. However, the property market has not yet picked up concurrent pace, resulting in a very favourable scenario for home seekers this Gudi Padwa.

Depending on how the property market is behaving, developers roll out various offers and incentives to encourage buyers during the Gudi Padwa season. This year, such offers are going to be plentiful, but a more important dynamic we will see is that many developers who had refrained from lowering their rates may do so selectively this year under the guise of festival discounts. Without a doubt, the tradition-fuelled upswing in buyer sentiments must be harnessed during Gudi Padwa.

More than ever, home seekers intent on making their purchase this Gudi Padwa need to be guided by the right fundamentals. It is important to understand that when it comes to freebies and offers, the real estate market is no different from any other kind of market – an attractive offer only makes sense if it is attached to the right product. Considering the magnitude of investment one makes into a home – and also the purpose of this investment – it is very important to ensure that one is buying what one really wants and needs.

One of the best ways to maintain a clear focus while buying a home in a festive season is to make a list of the merits and demerits of every option one has short-listed first. Given the specific nature of home purchase, sufficient weightage must be given to location, the reputation of the developer, the facilities and amenities available, and of course overall value for money. If all these check out positively and are backed by an attractive offer or discount, one is on the way to making a good choice.

The Value Proposition Of Large Vs. Small Flats In Pune

Anil-Pharande

 

 

Anil Pharande

Over the last couple of years, I have been observing with concern the decreasing size of flats on the Pune real estate market. Of course, it is the demand for smaller flats that is driving this kind of supply.

With housing prices in the Pune Municipal Corporation rising relentlessly, the ‘biggest’ opportunity that developers perceive is in smaller flats that get sold in the shortest possible time. This kind of supply is aimed at first-time home buyers who either have limited budgets or low financial confidence.

room

 

 

 

Smaller Flats – Pricing Trap

Though these are supposed to be ‘affordable homes’, the pricing of these units is actually on the higher side. They sell because the prices are still lower than those of larger flats, but the buyers are actually paying an excessive unit cost.

The reason for this disparity is that the ‘pigeon holes’ housing model itself has some inherent flaws built into it. To begin with, the share of common area that needs to allocated in a project that consists of only of small-sized homes means that the project loses in terms of overall efficiency and sale-able area. This results in lower revenue potential, so developers bump up their prices to compensate.

Secondly, the cost of construction depends on the quantity of raw materials being used. When a developer is building a project which comprises exclusively of small units, his development costs actually go up because every unit needs to be provided with separate fittings, appliances and finishes.

As a result, he will increase his prices to make up for the loss in profitability.

Home buyers should be aware that the converse is equally true. In a project with larger units, developers save on costs because of more efficient common space utilization and lower consumption of fittings, appliances and finishes for individual units.

Better Common Amenities

This is why a 1 BHK is often only 30-35% less expensive than a 2 BHK. The bottom line is that by opting for larger flats, property buyers are getting more value for their money.

Also, projects comprising of larger flats tend to have better common amenities, which the developer can maximize the overall livability and therefore attractiveness of the project rather than needing to focus on making as many units as possible within the available space.

The obvious question that follows is – where can middle class home buyers from Pune find larger flats that fall within their budgets? The answer is – in the developing (rather than expensive over-developed) parts of the city.

For example, West Pune is a corridor where hundreds of property buyers are still able to find true value for their money.

Property rates in many of the the areas of PCMC are lower than the inner localitions of the Pune Municipal Corporation, which means that buyers can get the benefits of larger flats with better amenities there.

With the vastly improved road connectivity, the newer areas of West Pune close to Hinjewadi and the MIDC are now becoming the destinations most favoured by home buyers working in these employment catchments.

Real Estate Investments Flowing Into West Pune

Anil-Pharande

 

 

Anil Pharande, CMD – Pharande Spaces

With a consistent track record for delivering the highest value to home buyers and investors alike, Pune’s real estate market has remained one of the most vibrant and exciting in India. By attracting more and more international and IT/ITeS companies to establish their operations, the city has been generating jobs at a scale which is unmatched by any of the other Indian metros.

Though the city ‘s property market has been witnessing fairly uniform growth, there is no doubt that West Pune is now the most vibrant and promising corridor. The primary factor driving growth in Western Pune is the Pune-Mumbai Expressway, which allows convenient and fast access to Mumbai.

Even by itself, this factor alone makes West Pune one of the most important parts of the city – in recent years, Pune and Mumbai have been coexisting in mutually beneficial economic juxtaposition, with capital and other resourcing flowing freely between the two cities.

punawale

The other reason why West Pune is on a tremendous growth curve is the fact that it has the major IT Parks of Hinjewadi, Baner and Aundh in the neighbourhood. At the same time, it enjoys superlative connectivity to the industrial pockets of Chakan, PCMC and Talegaon. Moreover, despite the massive economic activity and growth in this part of the city, West Pune enjoys a high degree of natural beauty.

This combination of factors has resulted in West Pune becoming the most preferred destination for home buyers and real estate investors not only from Pune, but also from Mumbai and various other parts of Maharashtra.

Because of the rapidly increasing demand for residential and commercial properties, West Pune has in the past delivered some of the most attractive real estate locations. With Aundh, Baner and Wakad now almost fully exploited and nearing complete saturation, Punawale has become the hottest new location in West Pune.

To a large extent, Punawale owes its fast rise to fame to the fact that it is located very close to the thriving Information Technology parks in Hinjewadi and Tathawade, as well as to the Pune-Mumbai Expressway. At the same time, Punawale offers quick access to Wakad and has a number of good schools, hospitals and shopping malls close at hand.

With the arrival of superlative residential projects at Punawale by reputed developers such as Pharande Spaces, this area is now the the location of choice for IT/ITeS professionals working in Hinjewadi and Tathawade, as well as from buyers from the MIDC manufacturing hub who are attracted by the better lifestyle options now available there.

 

 

 

puneville_1This combination of factors has led to Punawale becoming not only a hot new investment destination but also West Pune’s newest and most exciting luxury homes destination. Punawale has now seen the arrival of Puneville, a luxury township by Pharande Spaces – a project that has provided Punawale with a 360-degree image makeover on the Pune real estate map.

Like Moshi, Ravet, Spine Road, Wakad and many other highly successful real estate locations, Punawale has the added advantage of being located at the fulcrum of various mega road development projects by this region’s infrastructure-focused town planning authorities.

Backed by the unlimited cash reserves at the disposal of PCMC, Asia’s wealthiest Municipal Corporation, and a diverse and vibrant economy which provides a convincing complement to that of Pune, Western Pune is seeing a steady and growing pipeline of employment opportunities generated by its manufacturing and Information Technology industries.

In Punawale, Western Pune has received yet another iconic location to take this prosperous, infrastructure-driven region’s real estate story to the next level.

West Pune’s Golden Location Matrix Widens Into Punawale

While real estate is a constantly changing and evolving concept, some parameters remain constant – the three success mantras are still Location, Location and Location. In this respect, Western Pune is an important new chapter in the annals of Pune real estate’s success story. One of the most exciting new locations in this corridor is Punawale.

Thanks to massive demand for residential and commercial properties, Western Pune has delivered some of Pune’s hottest real estate locations over the past decade. Punawale is the latest addition to the region’s lineup of strategic real estate development and investment hotspots.

Located advantageously close to Hinjewadi and its burgeoning IT Park and the Pune-Mumbai Expressway, Punawale has now emerged as the location of choice for home buyers from the Information Technology as well as manufacturing segments. Punawale is also in close proximity to Wakad and benefits from convenient access to various hospitals, schools and shopping malls.

This combination of factors has had a big impact on demand for properties in Punawale, and has led to the launch of many new residential projects. Puneville, a luxury township recently launched by leading developers Pharande Spaces, is one of the most notable examples of Punawale’s massive image makeover on the Pune real estate map.

Like Moshi, Ravet, Spine Road, Wakad and many other highly successful real estate locations, Punawale has the added advantage of being located at the fulcrum of various mega road development projects by this region’s infrastructure-focused town planning authorities. Backed by the unlimited cash reserves at the disposal of Asia’s wealthiest Municipal Corporation.

Backed by a diverse and vibrant economy which provides a convincing complement to that of Pune, real estate growth in Western Pune is backed by a prolific manufacturing sector represented by a number of national and global industry giants. This region is seeing a steady and growing pipeline of employment opportunities generated by its manufacturing and Information Technology industries.

This factor has ensured that areas like Punawale see instant absorption of housing projects across budget brackets. It goes without saying that an employment-driven real estate location like Punawale also receives significant attention from property investors.

In Punawale, Western Pune has received yet another iconic location to take this prosperous, infrastructure-driven region’s real estate story to the next level.

A celebration of cutting-edge architecture, the project is uniquely futuristic in all aspects.

Pharande Spaces Announces Third Phase Of Luxury Township L-axis, PCMC

Pharande Spaces, the leading real estate development company in the Pimpri-Chinchwad Municipal Corporation, today announced the launch of three new towers at its highly successful luxury township L-axis. The announcement was made at a glittering ceremony that was attended by world-renowned architect and town planning expert Prof. Christopher Benninger, architect Mrs. Usha Rangarajan and Ravi Varma, Vice Chairman of the National Association of Realtors.

L-axis, one of the most successful township projects in the PCMC, has made a resounding market statement as the address of choice for HNIs from the PCMC, Pune and beyond. The location of this township has been one of the main catalysts for its success.

In a relatively short period after its inception, Spine Road in the Pradhikaran region of Pune’s thriving twin city PCMC has become one of the most talked-about investment locations. The 22-kilometer long and 45 meter-wide Spine Road connects to all sectors in the PCMC and the areas along it have become key development hotspots in the region.

Demand for homes in this area began peaking when the PCMC began further widening of this key transit infrastructure project. The Pradhikaran region, also known as Sector 42, encompasses a total area of 15000 acres and is a text-book case of planned development by the Pimpri Chinchwad New Town Development Authority PCNTDA.

“Road infrastructure is always the precursor of all successful real estate undertakings,” says Anil Pharande, Chairman – Pharande Spaces. “New real estate locations need to be properly connected to other parts of the city to make them attractive to developers and home buyers. For this reason, Spine Road in Pradhikaran has become a game-changer. Apart from its location, L-axis enjoys the benefits of the most luxurious project design, specifications and amenities as well as unmatched connectivity.”

Because of the Pimpri-Chinchwad Municipal Corporation’s forward-looking approach to infrastructure, the PCMC has always been the forerunner of highly planned infrastructure-driven real estate development in the Pune region. The impeccable town planning employed in the PCMC has ensured that there is a full-fledged district centre for commercial development and activity. This approach has provided a uniform spread of well-paid employment opportunities over the entire region.

L-axis is located in Sector 6, directly opposite the Bhosari District Centre with its high-profile corporate and government office complexes as well as a 5-star hotel and the recently launched ‘City One’ – PCMC’s first full-fledged shopping mall. The prestigious International Convention Centre is under construction in the immediate vicinity.

Mr. Pharande says, “Over the years, the ‘infrastructure first’ approach has been especially evident in PCMC’s Pradhikaran sector, where the Spine Road has now become one of the most exciting locations for home buyers and real estate investors. L-axis has indeed benefited from the perfect location.”

Pharande Spaces has already distinguished itself delivering high quality township projects such as Woodsville in Moshi, Celestial City at Ravet and more recently Puneville at Punavale in this prosperous and progressive region.

Launched in 2012, L-axis was conceived in response to the huge demand for luxury apartments in pune emanating from top management home buyers of the region’s many manufacturing giants, the Chakan industrial area and international automobile companies like Volkswagen, Mercedes Benz and Mahindra & Mahindra and General Motors.

Pharande Spaces launched the two new towers at L-axis in the presence of a 300+ gathering of channel partners and prominent real estate personalities. In the course of the evening, the company made a strong case for the unprecedented market proposition of this unique luxury township. The event was followed by a celebrity performance.

Pradhikaran, PCMC: Unmatched Real Estate Success Story

Anil-Pharande

 

 

Anil Pharande, CMD – Pharande Spaces

The Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal Corporation first came into the limelight as an industrial area. However, it also has an advantage that central Pune does not – planned development. The growth of the real estate sector in the Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal Corporation is closely regulated by the PCNTDA, which works together with the PCMC to ensure planned and realistic growth.

Central Pune continues to suffer from pollution, depleting greenery, traffic jams, water and power scarcity, lack of proper infrastructure and unrealistic residential property rates. Meanwhile, Pradhikaran (the location that defines the PCNTDA) has been benefiting from sensible real estate development.

If one studies the demographic development of Pune real estate growth, it is evident that Pradhikaran is precisely where the city’s growth is headed in the North/North-Western direction. This is extremely significant in terms of long-term residential property investment.

The Importance Of Pradhikaran

In years gone by, the PCNTDA began to acquire land in the PCMC area so that planned development could take place in the future. This planning included the allocation of specific areas for industrial activity, residential property development, public parks, unobstructed spaces, shopping centres, office buildings, roads and utilities.

Water supply to all sectors was ensured by the construction of several mammoth water tanks, each with capacities of several million litres, before development was permitted in each sector. Once this was done, the PCNTDA made the developed land parcels available to property developers.

The PCMC master plan also provides for generous road widths, the likes of which are impossible elsewhere in Pune. This goes a long way in preserving one of Pradhikaran’s natural splendour and hygiene.

Because of these factors, and also because of the growth in the PCMC industrial belt, the last two years have witnessed a huge increase in demand for residential property in the Pradhikaran area.

The fact that a number of large international companies are operating in nearby Chakan has, in fact, been a primary criterion for the area’s development profile. These companies regularly deliver thousands of jobs at all levels, which has had a telling effect on Pradhikaran’s general economic status. Specifically, there has been a huge surge in demand for residential property there.

Pradhikaran’s expansion, which has been inspired by the Chandigarh model of controlled development, began with a few hundred acres. Today, the area speaks for more than 7000 acres. Pradhikaran is continually seeing infrastructural enhancements on all fronts – including roads, water and electricity supply and digital connectivity.

Pradhikaran now boasts of massive integrated township projects that offer all the hallmarks of ambient, sustainable living. Apart from the high lifestyle quotient, the investment potential of these townships benefits from a magic mix of real estate market drivers. The presence of Tata Motors, Talawade, Hinjewadi, Chakan and the Pimpri-Chinchwad industrial belt add to the value of these townships, while the Mumbai-Pune highway and Expressway make it advantageously accessible to the financial capital of Mumbai.

No wonder that Pradhikaran is now being seen as both, the best option for first home buyers, and as the new residential property investment hotspot in Pune’s real estate market.

The International Convention Centre At Moshi

To further boost Pradhikaran’s real estate profiling, the deployment of the new Pune International Exhibition & Convention Centre at Moshi has been put on the fast track. This world class piece of infrastructure is going to open the floodgates to a new wave of demand for real estate in the northern parts of the Pimpri- Chinchwad Municipal Corporation. This is one of the best examples of how planned growth and foresight can ensure that an entire city’s real estate fortunes reach for the stars.

convention-centre

There were a couple of decisive factors involved in choosing this location as the venue for the international convention centre. First and foremost, PCMC boasts of a prolific manufacturing sector where a number of global industry giants have their plants. The arrival of this Convention Centre will be a major boost to these industries, who will be able to host and attend massive international business events.

This benefit also applies to the IT occupiers of the Software Parks at Hinjewadi and Talawade, which are also in the vicinity. Secondly, only the Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal Corporation could offer the 240 acres over which this Rs. 600 crore project will be developed.

With the arrival of this project, the PCMC will become the primary focus for an increasing number of global-scale business events in Pune and Mumbai, as well. After all, this will be the largest such Convention Center in India. It will incorporate seven convention halls of 10,000 square meters each, a 600-room 3 star hotel, two 5 star hotels, an eco-friendly 9-hole golf course and parking space for 3500 vehicles.

At a rough estimate, a minimum of 30 major exhibitions and conventions will be held there annually. No other event venue in and around Maharashtra or anywhere else in India will be able to match its state-of-the-art facilities and sheer opulence, grandeur and overall enablement.

The Pune International Exhibition and Convention Centre (PIECC) at Moshi will number among Asia’s biggest industrial convention centres. This convention centre is going to be a game-changer not only for the industrial belt in PCMC but for Pune in general.

Once this convention centre is complete, PCMC will become the natural hub for automobile conventions. This centre will have the capability of hosting conventions on an international scale, with a total of seven massive exhibition halls and a central open exhibition ground. It will have a staggering seating capacity of 20,000. In order to provide a complete global experience to the delegates, the convention centre will also have a five-star hotel, a golf course and a retail mall adjoining it.

A significant part of the land adjacent to the Pune International Exhibition and Convention Centre will be offered to private developers to build commercial and residential projects in Moshi. It can well be imagined what an effect such an advantageous location will have on the residential property prices in Moshi, PCMC. Obviously, the convention centre will generate massive white-collar employment, and the demand for quality housing around it will rise astronomically.

This makes the areas around the Pune International Exhibition and Convention Centre one of the most important property investment hot-spots ever to have surfaced in Maharashtra. In the years to come, the investment value of a home in strategically located township projects in its vicinity will rise astronomically.
