The fast ticking population clock has made it but necessary for the real estate market to shoulder the responsibility of providing residential shelter to millions at a much faster pace. Human beings are social animals and the immediate family instills the very art of being social in an individual by delivering the basics of sociability. A family in turn is tied to each other with the social threads which are kept secured in a place called ‘home’. Counted among one of the basic needs of human beings, the importance of home need not be talked about. Growing social bonds, growing families and growing population thus seek a growing number of residential options.
Four strong enough walls, a leak-proof roof and sufficient space to accommodate the fundamental stuff was all it needed for a house to fit into the frame of a home in the past. Things have changed now; the addition of one word to the dictionary of human beings has made all the difference-Comfort. Now, a home is no more confined to the past definitions, it must have the comfort factor to pamper its inhabitants, the more the better! One definitely needs to splurge a little extra which may as well pinch the wallet, but the array of available amenities justifies the expenditure. Residential properties have become a hot favorite among the buyers as well as the realtors. The word ‘home’ has a new terminology; you can call it an apartment, a society flat, a villa or refer to it as independent floors.
There is no dearth of residential options especially in the metros like Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore and Chennai. The craze for apartments and flats is climbing the graph day-by-day. The real estate market in Delhi for the residential properties is undoubtedly having a ball with a long queue of potential buyers. The prominent residential areas of Delhi include Vasant Vihar, Dwarka, Rohini, Chanakyapuri and Golf Links, to name a few. All the above residential areas galore in choices from comfort-infested apartments to luxurious flats. Mumbai is equally feeling the heat for residential properties. Residential areas like Versova, Malad, Andheri, Lokhandwala and Borivali in Mumbai are brimming with hot residential options. Flats in Mumbai offer a wide range of luxury and comfort to take the existing lifestyle of the Mumbaikars to yet another level. Same is the trend in Bangalore where apartments and flats have been gaining grounds over independent housing. Whitefield, Koramangala, JP Nagar, Indiranagar and Jayanagar are some of the suitable residential areas in Bangalore with ample choices for flats and apartments. Flats and apartments in Chennai are more prevalent in the Western part of the city.
The real estate market is full of dream residential properties laden with amenities, one can only think of, and stylish interiors to add to the existing status symbol of many. This is actually the ideal negotiation time for a buyer as the market is flooded with a loud and clear message-apartments and flats for sale! The price tag of the residential properties depends on the location and the amenities offered. The real estate developers are aware of the fact that India is a mix of extremes with varying pocket sizes, some too deep and some too shallow. Therefore, the available residential options come in all budget sizes. There was a time when the power cuts resulted in sleepless nights for the residents with the trickling sweat and the mosquitoes happily singing their blood-sucking song. The scenario has changed a lot for the people who can now afford to buy an apartment or flat as power cuts are almost history for them. The moment the electricity goes, the society power back-up emerges as a savior with the residents snoring and dreaming in the cool A/C environs while the rest of the area may go through the usual mosquito bites and forced insomnia.
The easy financial options have made the purchase of residential properties far more convenient. Today the residents do not mind shelling out an extra penny, given the condition that they are pampered in a comfortable residential apartment or flat. As evident, the choices are many for residential options, but it all depends on individual buyers whether they want the mosquito bites or the sweet dreams, a secure residence or an unsafe residential option or celebrating life in seclusion or amidst several others sharing similar views. A simple note for all the buyers interested in purchasing a residential apartment or flat, “Make hay while the sun shines, enjoy the comforts and never whine!!”
