Ivy Estate Wagholi - Best Township for Raising a Family

Take a Fresh View of Life:


Residents of Ivy Estate Wagholi Protesting Against Water Charges

If Eon IT Park at Kharadi & budget are your only parameters
- you can book a flat in any project in Wagholi.

But, if you are looking for the best place to raise your family
- you should consider Ivy Estate.

I strongly recommend.

Why?

Because, I know for sure, residents of Ivy Estate at Wagholi are the most "United, Enlightened & Assertive" flat buyers in entire Pune real estate market.

Because of the unity among the residents - I believe - your child will not only get friends to play with - but he / she will get brothers & sisters. For free!

Your enlightened child - I feel - will know how to notice & protect itself from any kind of abuse.

Same about your spouse.  Sexual abuse at the work - is rampant.

And, you too can live a safe life.  At home. At work.

Because, your neighbor can play an effective role in stopping domestic violence.

Your close colleague can stand with you against exploitation at work.    

Your enlightened united neighbours in Ivy Estate, for sure,
will teach you how to live an assertive life.
How to stand for yourself.
How to fight for your rights.
How not to become a victim of a builder - of a system - or of a company.

Why do I think so?

Because, that's how the residents of Ivy Estate are living!
Fearless & respectable life.

For example, after possession, the residents of Ivy Estate experienced  "deficiency in service" offered by the builder - Kolte-Patil Developers Ltd. (www.koltepatil.com)

Inferior quality of drinking water.
High TDS (Total Dissolved Solids) may prove hazardous to their health. Residents of Ivy Estate feared.

Miss management of money.
The residents refused to approve the money spent for buying & processing tanker water.

The builder should have spent this money for maintenance of the society.
Not for water.
The residents of Ivy Estate say.

For water - for Bhima River Water Pipeline - the residents of Ivy Estate have already paid
So, the builder has no right to spend their maintenance money for buying  tanker water.

Why should residents of Ivy Estate pay for inability & incompetence of Kolte-Patil Developers?

To know more, please, view these videos, I shot last weekend.
And tell me - am I right or wrong?
Aren't these united - enlightened - assertive - guys in Ivy Estate the best neighbors?
Doesn't that make Ivy Estate the best place for raising a family?

Share your views in the comments, please.

(P. S. In fact, I believe, these residents of Ivy Estate deserve dividend! After all - property price appreciation would be the fruit of their efforts!!)

Terrible Tragedy of Mandke Armaan at Viman Nagar, Pune

For More Than 15 Months Mr. Sudhir Mandke & Co has stopped construction of Mandke Armaan at Viman Nagar:


Terrible Tragedy of Mandke Armaan by Sudhir Mandke & Co at Viman Nagar, Pune, India

What can a flat buyer do when he becomes a victim of a builder? The caller asked me.

A victim of a builder should call Ravi Karandeekar on 919860044110. Fix the time. Share his sufferings on video. I said.

What's the use of the video? Will it solve the problem? The caller asked.

When a flat owner open his mouth against injustice - an unfair practice of a builder - he feels powerful. The powerful flat buyer thinks about an action. The action solves the problem. I said.

Wouldn't it anger the builder more? The caller asked.

Certainly. The builder will get upset. Angry. Because,  he can not  now treat you as his slave - prisoner - victim. I said.

Then what will the builder do? The caller asked.

The builder will realize that you are not a coward - He can not rob you any more.  The builder will start respecting you. Your rights. I said.

On Sunday Morning come to Viman Nagar. I want to stop suffering. Start taking action. Said the caller.

Dil Ke Armaan Aansuon Mein Beh Gaye:




When I reached Viman Nagar, I was prepared to hear a sad story about a flat buyer and a builder.
Not for a terrible tragedy.
Not for a conflict between my hero and superior force.

But, here the conflict was between the builder of Mandke Armaan -
Sudhir Mandke & Co - v/s Pune Municipal Corporation.
Between Sudhir Mandke & Co v/s Indian Air Force.
Between Sudhir Mandke & Co v/s Pune Municipal Corporation + Indian Air Force.

And the sorrowful conclusion of the conflict was - Sudhir Mandke & Co (www.sudhirmandke.com) had stopped construction of Mandke Armaan. Almost one and half year ago.

Why did Sudhir Mandke & Co stop the construction of Mandke Armaan?

Because, Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) told Sudhir Mandke & Co to stop the construction.

Why did PMC stop the construction of Mandke Armaan?

Because, there was some "policy decision problem" between PMC & Indian Air Force.

Pune Municipal Corporation has already sanctioned the plans of Mandke Armaan.

Sudhir Mandke & Co has constructed Mandke Armaan as per the sanctioned plan.

Inspite of that PMC has stopped the work. For sometime.

Sudhir Mandke & Co had submitted all papers to Air Force.

But there is no decision.

As such, we - Sudhir Mandke & Co - is unable to proceed with the work for short time.

As per letter of Sudhir Mandke & Co to Mr. S.Karuppusamy. Sent on 03/06/2013.

It means that - as per Sudhir Mandke & Co - the conflict is between - Mr. S. Kuruppusamy, Mr. Amit Deshpande, Mr. Santosh Tiwari, Mr. Nilesh Deshmukh & other flat buyers in Mandke Armaan & Pune Municipal Corporation plus Indian Air Force.

The conflict between common man & superior forces.

Not between Sudhir Mandke & Co v/s the Flat Buyers in Mandke Armaan.

In this issue - Sudhir Mandke & Co has no role to play!

Yes, Sudhir Mandke & Co is not doing anything to resolve the issue, feel all the flat buyers in Mandke Armaan Viman Nagar.

Every time we meet, the builder gives us sweet talk but we don't see any action. No results. Only excuses. The flat buyers say.

Shaayad Unakaa AaKhirii Ho Yah Sitam.....
(Perhaps this will be their last atrocity):


Terrible Tragedy of Mandke Armaan by Sudhir Mandke & Co at Viman Nagar, Pune, India
Terrible Tragedy of Mandke Armaan by Sudhir Mandke & Co at Viman Nagar, Pune, India

It was so sad to be in Mandke Armaan - abandoned by Sudhir Mandke & Co - one & half year ago.

The sadness became unbearable when - someone wondered about the timing of PMC's stop order.

Why did PMC ask Sudhir Mandke & Co to stop the work - only after the flat buyers had paid almost 70 - 80 per cent of the price of their flats to the builder?

Why did PMC ask Sudhir Mandke & Co to stop construction of Mandke Armaan - after RCC, Brickwork & Plaster of 5 stories was done?

But, Sudhir Mandke & Co hasn't shown us the original order issued by PMC & Indian Air Force - the flat buyers realized.

It was depressing to see other 5 / 6 storied buildings standing opposite & next to Mandke Armaan - in the same neighborhood of Viman Nagar.

Why didn't Indian Air Force take objection to these buildings? Why did Indian Air Force raise objection only against 4th & 5th floor of Mandke Armaan?

If there is no objection for 1st, 2nd & 3rd floor - what is stopping Sudhir Mandke & Co (www.sudhirmandke.com) from completing the construction of these floors and handing over possession of these flats to the buyers?

For the  last 15 - 18 months - though the project is stalled  - we all are paying EMI to the banks. Why are the banks - SBI & HDFC - least bothered about the completion & possession of the flats in Mandke Armaan?

All flat buyers in Mandke Armaan  fail to understand - who is trying to victimise them?

But, they are not helpless. Not Anymore. They are going to take action. Solid action.

Of course, after today's meeting with Mr. Sudhir Mandke & Co.

What say you?
Will Sudhir Mandke & Co complete the project?
Will the buyers in Mandke Armaan get their flats?
In any situation - what should they do?

Tell me, what can a flat buyer do when he becomes a victim of a builder?

Welcome to Tiny Homes at Kondhawe Dhawade, near Kothrud, Pune!

Review of Vastushodh Projects' Pre Launch Offer of UrbanGram 02
2 BHK Flat - 452 sq.ft. Carpet + Terrace for Rs. 36 Lakhs (Approx) &
3 BHK Flat - 635 sq.ft. Carpet + Terrace for Rs. 46 Lakhs (Approx)
at Kondhawe Dhawade, near Warje - Kothrud, Pune 411 023:

Now, You Can Live in Pune!:


In the last few days, whoever called me (on 919860044110) to know my views about booking a flat at Maan, Marunji, Sus, Pirangut, Chande Nande, Chandkhed, Kasarsai, heard me saying - Now, you have an option. Now, if you wish, you can live in Pune!

But, my budget is small. Only 35 - 40 Lakhs. In this budget, I can get a flat only in these villages around Hinjewadi.

Or I can go for Chikhali - Moshi on Dehu Alandi Road.

Yes, I would be happy if you suggest a good 1 BHK in 35 - 45 lakhs in Kiwale, Ravet, Punawale, Sus & Bhugaon.

But, I can't think of buying a home in Pune.

Usually, every caller said.

Why go for a 1 BHK when you can get a 2 BHK in 36 Lakhs?

Why go for Maan, Marunji, Sus, Pirangut, Chande Nande, Chandkhed, Kasarsai, Chikhali, Moshi etc when you can live in a 2 BHK in Pune? I would ask.

Where in Pune? What is the name of the project? Many callers asked.

UrbanGram 02 at Kondhawe Dhawade.

I announced with  great pride.

Come on! Kondhawe Dhawade is not in Pune.

You are promoting your friend's project.

How much commission do you get to promote this project?

But, I was considering Vastushodh Projects' UrbanGram at Pirangut!

These were typical first reactions to my suggestion of booking a 2 BHK Flat for Rs. 36 Lakhs at Vastushodh Projects' UrbanGram 02 at Kondhawe Dhawade!

However, everyone asked me - How is it possible?

To make this possible - Vastushodh is launching Tiny Homes.

Because of Tiny Homes - you can enjoy all the benefits of living in Pune.

You don't have to go to some far & away village.

To understand the concept of Vastushodh Projects' Tiny Home, please, visit the sample flats of 2 BHK & 3 BHK at UrbanGram 02.

You may like it.
Or - you won't like it at all.

But, you will agree with me on one point -
Now, you have an option.
Now, you have freedom. Freedom to choose.
Now, there is no compulsion to live in some undeveloped village.
Now, in your budget, if you wish, you can live in Pune.
Was my standard reply.

Goodbye, Affordable Housing!


I didn't become a fan of Tiny Homes - in UrbanGram 02 at Kondhawe Dhawade - overnight.

In fact, when Mr. Nitin Kulkarni, my dear friend & director of Vastushodh Projects, invited me to see the sample flats of UrbanGram 02 at Kondhawe Dhawade - I had almost come to conclusion that days of affordable housing are over.

After visiting the sample flats & considering their prices - 2 BHK Flat for 36 Lakhs & 3 BHK for 46 , it was clear to me that my friends have found a profitable business solution. And, at last, publically, they are saying goodbye to affordable housing and entering into Tiny Homes - which can be developed anywhere in PMC limits.

"How's it? Good?," asked Mr. Nitin.

"Yes! Good for you!!," I said.

Mr. Nitin went on staring at me. Without asking what he really wanted to know - "Will people buy such small homes?"

"I am not sure whether it is good for home buyers. Whether it is worth buying. You know that - a home buyer risks his life to own a home. I am not yet sure - whether this home is worth risking your life for. When I am sure - I will say it's a good property, " I said.

Then for a long time we stood in silence.

I kept looking around. This was my second visit to the site. I had liked the site when I visited it for the first time. In fact, it's a lot better than the 1st UrbanGram - on the river bank - surrounded by buildings - at a proper distance from the main Karve Road.

But, I was not here to admire the location & the beauty of site. I was here to discuss innovation - new housing concept.

In the first UrbanGram at Kondhawe Dhawade, carpet area of the 2 BHK Flat was in the range of 612 to 673 sq.ft. Whereas, in this 2nd UrbanGram, approximately in the same carpet area you can get a 3 BHK Flat!

And, in this 2nd UrbanGram, a carpet area of a 2 BHK Flat is around 452 sq.ft. - which was the area of a 1 BHK Flat in the 1st UrbanGram at Kondhawe Dhawade.

However, the change is not only in the size - carpet area of the flat - not only the rate - budget - but the whole concept is changed. Why?

"At 1st UrbnaGram Kondhawe Dhawade - a 2 BHK Flat was for Rs. 20 Lakhs. Now, in this 2nd UrbanGram - at the same location - a 2 BHK costs Rs. 36 Lakhs. Why?," I asked.

"This is 2014. 1st UrbanGram Kondhawe Dhawade was launched in 2010.," said Mr. Nitin.

"What has changed in these 4 years?," I asked.

"Everything! Land prices have gone up. Today, in 20 Lakhs - it's impossible to offer even a 1 BHK!," said Mr. Nitin.

"Haven't you changed?," I said.

"No. I haven't changed. Vastushodh - was - & - is - a builder of young - first time - home buyers. We - Sachin & Nitin Kulkarni - are - still - building homes which will fit into their budgets. This exercise proves that - our focus hasn't changed. Even in today's tougher circumstances - I am trying my best - to develop homes - which will fit into their budgets," said Mr. Nitin.

Say No to Unaffordable Housing:


Mr. Nitin Kulkarni was right. He hasn't changed. He is still building houses for those who have small budgets.

So, are most of the builders - who develop affordable housing.

Because, affordable housing is the builders' cash cow. A cow - which eats less and gives more - milk.

Less initial investment. Quick & huge profits.

Till this cash cow is  making them more prosperous - these builders will never change.

But, what about the property buyers?

Day by day, we all are becoming poorer & poorer. Our life is becoming more & more difficult.

Today, if we want to own a home - we have to pay a penalty.
A penalty of paying exorbitant taxes to the government.
A penalty of paying irrationally high interest rates to the banks.
A penalty of becoming slaves of the banks - for life.
A penalty of giving away 50 per cent of our monthly income to the banks - for 20 - 30 years.
A penalty of no drinking water.
A penalty of no proper roads.
A penalty of no power.
A penalty of more commuting time & less family time.
A penalty of no social life.
A penalty of high stress - physical & mental illness.

We are ready to sacrifice to own a home.
But, the builders & banks demand more than pound of flesh -  they impound your life.

Your life - for what?

For a cramped 1 - 2 BHK Affordable Flat - irrationally priced - poorly designed & constructed - situated at odd - non urbanized - not suitable for living - far away - location - which do not have any civil & social infrastructure - mostly developed by some newbie - small - fly by night - builder.

These are not affordable homes.
These are unaffordable homes.
Say no to these unaffordable homes.
I advice everyone.
Because, I am changed.

Because, I am Ravi Karandeekar.
In 2007, I stopped selling flats and started helping you to own a home.
But, today, in 2014, mostly, I convince you - not to book a flat!

Why?

Because, most of us are not financially eligible to own a home.
Most of us don't have enough money for down payment.
Most of us don't earn enough to take care of our family - after paying EMI.
Most of us may never be able to make a prepayment and become a debt free before retirement.
Most of us are not going to get pension - so making provision for retirement - is our first priority - not owning a home.
Most of us haven't realized that,  in this market economy, property is not an asset. Education is an asset. Skill is an asset. Save for the education of your child. Invest in your children. Not in property.
Most of us don't know that debt is dumb. Being debt free is the status symbol. Not homeownership.

And you know what?
The people like us are the targets of all these affordable housing projects.

So, what else can we do, but - say no to these affordable homes?
Tell me.

Naturally, when my dear friend - Mr. Nitin Kulkarni of Vastushodh - showed me his tiny home - I was happy.
It's not an affordable home.
It's tiny home.
It's not for those who don't have enough money to own a home.
It's for Metrosexual Families.
The Metrosexual Families - who want to live a full life. A life in Pune city.

It may be the first attempt in Pune.
But, all over the world - in all big cities - from Mumbai to New York - Metrosexual Families - who want to live a city life - are opting for tiny homes.

Because, these metrosexual families are ready to sacrifice space - not life.

Welcome to TinyGram at Kondhawe Dhawade:


Of course, I didn't tell Mr. Nitin Kulkarni - my dear friend & Director of Vastushodh Projects - that I liked his tiny homes.

Instead of that - I called the architect of UrbanGram 02 - Mr. Girish Bramhe of Telesis Architects & Designers Pvt Ltd. (I am his big fan. He is a genius.)  and said, "Xrbia offers a 2 BHK in 416 / 419 sq.ft. carpet area. Yours is some 450. What's this? Couldn't you make it smaller?"

"I can . But I didn't. Let us meet at the sample flat and talk about it," said Architect Girish Bramhe.

Then last weekend, we - Architect Girish & I - met at the site of UrbanGram 02 at Kondhawe Dhawade.

After having a look at the sample flats, Architect Girish, asked me, "What do you look for in a flat?"

1) For me the most important thing about a flat is emotional. I look for the total effect. I want a home. Where I feel protected - free & connected - with me - and, with my family. I don't want just a bunch of rooms. For me total impact of the flat - of the space - is more important.

2) I know that this effect is the total of  - 1) Privacy  2) Light  3) Ventilation  4) Suitable Layout for my lifestyle 5) Number of rooms 6) Minimum required  space for my stuff.

"Does this flat feel like a home? Or is this a bunch of rooms?," Architect Girish asked.

"A 3 BHK feels like a home. But not a 2 BHK. Because, a 2 BHK doesn't have a dining," I said.

"In your present home, where do you have your dinner?," Architect Girish asked.

"Mostly - in the living - I believe in multitasking. Watching TV, eating food & gossiping about the day. I do everything at the same time in my living. But I have a dining at my place - which I use when I have guests," I said.

"You not only believe in multitasking but in multi use of your living too - Right?," said Architect Girish.

"Though you use your living as dining - you feel at home. Multi use doesn't turn your home into a bunch of rooms. Right?," said Architect Girish.

"Yes. Because - It's my choice. My comfort. My convenience!," I said.

"Certainly. In the sample flat - you noticed that  a 2 BHK doesn't have a dining and came to the conclusion that it's not a home. But - before jumping to conclusion - have you considered to use this living - as you use yours - did you see yourself having a TV dinner on the sofa in this living?," asked Architect Girish.

"No. I didn't. Yes, it's possible to use this living like mine," I said.

"It means that both 2 BHK & 3 BHK are homes. Right?," said Architect Girish.

"Yes!," I said.

"Good! It means that - focusing of usability of space is more important. Right?," said Architect Girish.

"Yes. We buy a home to live - being able to live comfortably is important," I said.

"But - when we buy a home - our focus is more on the size! We consider carpet area & room sizes. We consider how big or small is the place. But - do we consider the usability? Isn't it wrong?," said Architect Girish.

"You mean to say that a focus should be on the use and not on the size. Right?," I said.

"Yes! In this plan I have exactly done that. I have focused on the use of space. Not on the size of the space," said Girish.

"Why? Why use became more important than size?," I said.

"Because - your friends - Sachin & Nitin - wanted to offer an option to own a 2 BHK for 36 & a 3 BHK Flat for 46 in Kondhawe Dhawade! Considering land & construction costs - reducing the size of the flat - without compromising on usability - was the only solution," said Architect Girish.

"Agree. Now, answer my question - I asked you - couldn't you reduce more? - You said - I can - but I didn't - Why didn't you reduce more?," I asked.

"If you want to reduce more - first you have to change the concept of a home. Without changing the concept it's not possible to reduce further. We will talk about it some other time. Now, let us focus on this plan," said Architect Girish and explained the concept of a tiny home.

The sample flat at UrbanGram is in reality a prototype. (Like a prototype of a car.) To test the usability & functionality of a flat. After confirming that the carpet area fulfils your need of minimum required usable space - the final floor plan was designed.

It means that - though the carpet area of a Tiny Home is less - minimum required space in living, kitchen, dining, toilet & bedroom is - as much as - in any compact flat. Yes, it is little less - but, certainly, sufficient.  

To explain how much sufficient space is available in 2 BHK & 3 BHK Tiny Homes - Architect Girish compared them with currently offered compact flats. Of course, the comparison is not about room sizes. Comparison is based on the usable space & functionality.

Let us compare 2 BHK & 3 BHK Tiny Homes in UrbanGram with 2 BHK & 3 BHK Flats in Life Montage at Sus.

Carpet area of a 2 BHK Tiny Home in UrbanGram is 452 sq.ft. whereas a 2 BHK Flat in Life Montage comes in 686 sq.ft.

3rd Bedroom39" x 75" Bed + 5' Wardrobe39" x 75" Bed + 6' Wardrobe

Point is - 2 BHK & 3 BHK Tiny Homes at UrbanGram Kondhawe Dhawade fulfil your requirement of necessary functional space.

Everyone in your family can sit and watch TV in Living.

You wife has enough space to cook. If you have a maid - Kamwali Bai - Poliwali Bai - she can also work in the kitchen when your wife is cooking.

You will sleep on Queen Size Bed. On which you will get 30" x 80" space. Instead of 38" x 80" on King Size Bed. Only 8" less!
Your bedroom will have enough space for your cloths.

You will teach your baby to sleep in his bedroom. Not because your bed is not big enough to let him sleep with you but, - because your baby has his own room. You will feel proud of yourself for being able to provide independant room for your child.

If you are planning to have 2 children - or your parents are going to stay with you - you can go for a 3 BHK Tiny Home today.

By the way, when you will visit the sample flat, please, enter  the toilet. Close the door. And then check whether there is enough room to use commode & to take a shower. If you look from outside, you may find the toilet too small. Remember? We are talking about usability and not about size.

If you find that in this Tiny Home there is enough space to do whatever you need & wish to do at home,  consider the benefits of living in Pune and property prices - a 2 BHK Flat for Rs. 36 Lakhs (Approx) & a 3 BHK Flat for Rs. 46 Lakhs (Approx).

Even if you felt that in this Tiny Home there is not enough space to do whatever you need & wish to do at home, consider the benefits of living in Pune and property prices - 2 BHK Flat for Rs. 36 Lakhs (Approx) & a 3 BHK Flat for Rs. 46 Lakhs (Approx).

In both the cases - you will find that to own a home - you have to sacrifice something.

At Tiny Homes in UrbanGram you have to sacrifice space.

At an affordable home in Maan, Marunji, Sus, Pirangut, Chande Nande, Chandkhed, Kasarsai, Chikhali, Moshi you have to sacrifice life.

What to sacrifice - space or life?

Choice is yours!

That's what I liked about Vastushodh Projects' 2 BHK & 3 BHK Tiny Homes in UrbanGram Kondhawe Dhawade. Now, you are free to choose. Now, if you wish, you can live in Pune!

Every Property Buyer Must Get Dividend:


Mr. Rohit Shah - Visit Shah Bafna Associates' Costa Blanca - 2 BHK Flats at Sr. No. 38/1/93 Baner, opposite Gera's Regent Park, Pune 411038

"Appreciation" is not enough. You must get more than that. Every property buyer must get dividend.

Appreciation means an increase in value of a property.
You can encash appreciation only when you sell that property.
It means that, you won't earn anything from your investment if you decide to use that property as your permanent residence.
This is unfair.
You must get financial reward from your investment.
Because property rates go up - property appreciates - only because of you.
We all know that your bookings empower the builder to hike the property rates.
That's why you should get the reward for your contribution in hiking the property rates and earning profits.
You should get a piece of increased property price.
Builder must share a part of his increased profit with you.
You must get dividend.

Dividend of 1st Phase of Costa Blanca Baner:


For example, in July 2011, when Costa Blanca opened the pre launch offer of the flats - on 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th & 6th floors - property rate was only Rs. 4,300 per sq.ft.

Today, the current property rate of the same ready possession flat is Rs. 6,750 per sq.ft.

It means that in the last 3 years - from  July 2011 to July 2014 - property rate of the same flats in Costa Blanca are appreciated by Rs. 2,430 per sq.ft.  (Rs. 6,750 - Rs. 4,300).

Out of these 2,430, Shah Bafna Associates, the builder of Costa Blanca, should share Rs. 1,215 per sq ft with the original property buyers.

As per the property price list, today, approximately 15,741 sq.ft. in 16 units are available for sale.

It means that, the builder of Costa Blanca should distribute Rs. 1,91,25,315 (15,741 sq.ft. x Rs. 1,215) among the original flat buyers.

Dividend of 2nd Phase of Costa Blanca Baner:


The Costa Blanca at Baner is a unique housing project. At Costa Blanca not only the property rates but the carpet areas of the flats have also appreciated!

In the first phase, flats on the 1st. 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th & 6th floors were opened for booking. Whereas, now, in the 2nd phase flats on 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th & 11th floors - of the same buildings - are available for booking.

As per the floor plans given to me, the carpet areas of these flats on 7th to 11th floors are more than the flats on 1st to 6th floors!

Now, in the 2nd phase, total saleable area available for booking is approximately 20,300 sq.ft..

The current property rate of the 2nd phase is Rs. 6,550 per sq.ft..

It means that the appreciation is Rs. 2,250 per sq.ft. (6,550 - 4,300).

Out of this 50 % profit -  @ Rs. 1.125 per sq.ft. -  should be distributed among the flat buyers in the 1st phase.

Means, Shah Bafna Associates should distribute Rs. 2,28,37,500 (20300 sq. ft. x Rs. 1,125 per sq. ft.) among the flat buyers in the 1st phase of Costa Blanca.

Dividend - Cementing Relations Between the Paymasters & Service Provider:


It means that, the builder of Costa Blanca Baner should distribute Rs. 4,19,62,815 (Rs. 1,91,25,315 of the 1st Phase + Rs. 2,28,37,500 of the 2nd Phase) as a dividend among the flat buyers in the 1st phase.

Certainly, this dividend is not a compensation. This dividend is just a token of appreciation. It's just a builder's way of thanking the paymasters - property buyers.

For a fact, the builder could develop Costa Blanca only because, in 2011, these property buyers took a risk of borrowing money from the banks to invest in this project. Eventually, these flat buyers had to invest lot more than money. They invested their lives, careers & mental - emotional health. And, subsequently, suffered a lot.

Certainly, the builder of Costa Blanca also did a good job. Though he took more time, he completed the 1st phase, got completion & occupancy certificate, water & power connection,

Result is - as a construction service provider he is getting more profit than he actually deserves.

All because of the flat buyers in the 1st phase!

By sharing a portion of extra - unexpected profit - appreciation -  with the flat buyers in the 1st Phase of Costa Blanca, the builder will be able to cement their relations.

The builder will be able to ensure that he will remain in this business for a long time. And as long as he will be in this business, these property buyers will support him.

After all, in the last 3 years, no development has happened in the neighbourhood of Costa Blanca. Even today, there is no proper approach road to the project.

The possession of the 2nd phase is early, but a lot of work is still pending.

Who knows? The builder may need 6 - 10 or even  more months to hand over the possession of these flats.

It means that the flat buyers who booked in 2011, will be investing 4 years of their lives in the completion of Costa Blanca Baner!

The moral of the story is, the support of flat owners in the 1st phase of Costa Blanca is crucial.

Their contribution in the successful completion of Costa Blanca is valuable.

Certainly, the flat owners in the first phase of Costa Blanca Baner deserve dividend.

A builder must share a portion of profit with the property buyers:


The other day, Mr. Rohit Shah, son of Mr. Ramesh Shah, one of the partners in Shah Bafna Associates, developers of Costa Blanca at Baner, invited me to the site. Rohit has done MBA from United Kingdom. From conceptualisation to possession, Rohit is responsible for Costa Blanca. While explaining how he successfully handled this challenge, Rohit said that - I put myself in the home buyer's shoes.

That's great! While reviewing Costa Blanca Baner - Why shouldn't I do the same? I asked myself.

When I put myself in the shoes of  flat owners of the 1st Phase of Costa Blanca, I realized that they should get the portion of Rohit's profit. They deserve dividend.

Thanks to Mr. Rohit! Now, I am convinced that - not only the flat buyers in the 1st phase of Costa Blanca, but every property buyer who books at the launch or initial stage of any project in Pune real estate market should get the dividend - should get the portion of profit in cash.

Because, appreciation is not enough. You deserve dividend.

How Am I Doing Mr. Rohit Shah?

What say you, dear home buyers?
