Future Talk Major Investments In Sultanpur

Sultanpur in Medak district is the hub of major investments that are taking place in Hyderabad. It is located at a distance of 16 to 18 Km from important hubs such as hi-tech city area, Microsoft campus, financial district etc. in Hyderabad City. As the city is experiencing a tremendous growth and consequent economic activity, the government felt the need to provide better infrastructure facilitates. Hyderabad would be an integrated financial hub with infrastructure facilities for financial services operations for banking, insurance and asset management companies. As a result of this, there have been a few investments around Sultanpur which include:

RAKIA investment

RAKIA is the investment arm of the UAE government which had asked for a total of 2000 acres for the project. It is the government body responsible for the socioeconomic growth of the Emirates. The MoU was signed by Wahid Attalla, Member of the Board, Rakeen, the real estate development arm of Ras Al Khaimah Investment Authority (RAKIA), and APIIC Chairman and Managing Director B P Acharya, in the presence of Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y S Rajasekhara Reddy. RAKIA is also developing several other townships across the country through RAKINDO, RAKIA’s joint venture company in India. Over 3,000 acres of land has been earmarked for various projects in Coimbatore, Chennai, Kumarakom, Hosur and Cochin, each with a projected cost of $2bn.

Ras Al Khaima Authority (RAKIA), and APIIC signed a memorandum of understanding in September last for the development of HEC with a proposed investment of Rs 20,000 crore. With this proposed project in Sultanpur, Medak district will witness a significant change in terms of infrastructure and employment facilities. Sultanpur is located abutting the outer ring road and is presently accessible from the Mumbai highway via the Beeramguda crossing which is two Km after BHEL. A three and half Km drive would bring you to Kistareddypet village. The limits of Sultanpur commence barely half a Km to the right of Kistareddy pet which has already been witnessing real estate development in the form of gated communities, residential layouts and apartment complexes.

This is the largest real estate and infrastructure project coming up in Andhra Pradesh and is expected to provide quality employment to thousands of people. The Andhra Pradesh government recently allotted 471 acres of land at Sultanpur village of Medak district for the first phase of Hyderabad Economic city which is being jointly developed by APIIC and RAKIA. Residential areas adjacent to Sultanpur such as Ayilapur, Kistareddypet and patelgudem will be the most sought after destinations and are likely to appreciate in value considerably. RAKIA is a world renowned and much respected investment body that is cash rich. Executing a project of this magnitude is well within their capability.

Outer Ring Road (ORR)

With the ongoing project of ORR by Hyderabad Urban Development Authority with a total length of 162 Kms, the villages around Sultanpur such as Kistareddypet is likely to experience a large scale development along the ORR Corridor. The outer ring road is passing through the village limits and 100 acres of land has been acquired for this project. It is therefore no surprise that lands situated in the growth corridor are much in demand and have been multiplying in value.

Ways To Make Money From Singapore Properties

st way – buy low, sell high
Very simple strategy. Timing is key to success for this strategy. Opportunity for buying low is during recession, when sentiments in job market and economy are low (the lower the better). This is a great time to enter the market ‘coz prices will be depressed. Some investors like to buy when prices are “relatively attractive” or “affordable” according to their means. Some investors may choose to buy in only when there’s signs of uptrend (so they are buying at the base of the upturn).

So how do we know whether it’s the bottom? During the bad times, many will say “it’s too risky, it will go lower, let’s wait”. Do understand that real estate is inherently an illiquid investment, as opposed to the equity market. The periodic charts / graphs / data presented (on a macro scale) will be good indicators of how the real estate market is moving. The stock market chart may show volatility (up 1 day, down the other, up 1 week, down the other) but real estate market data will trend for quite some time before peaking or bottoming (we also won’t know exactly how long, that’s a question which only the market has an answer to).

Many home buyers like to think that today’s prices are “too expensive” relative to last month / last year’s price. We will only support such thinking if the broad data shows “all-time highs”, otherwise smart buyers should understand that its not only you who is buying at this “higher price”. If others are buying around the same price, then it is only natural that the market forces will continue to push the prices even higher because each buyer-turned-seller will continue to ask for higher prices to gain profit, and that is how everyone plays the game (well, at least until the bubble bursts).

2nd way – buy at a discount
Simple strategy but often neglected. So, you may be curious as to where exactly can you find properties at a discount? Most real estate articles will teach you to look for foreclosures (auctions), urgent sales, etc. So, we won’t say more about those.

There’s another type of property which we believe can be considered as “discounted” – old apartments in worn-out condition. A word of caution – you should be somewhat interested in doing renovation works, talking to designers and contractors if you are interested in trying out this type of discounted properties. And always remember the 3 golden rules of real estate – location, location, location.

In fact, you can also find discounted properties in new condo projects as well. How so? … stay tuned to our updates and we will tell you more =)

3rd way – buy to lease out
Rental yield (your rental returns on your property purchase) is a fundamental way many people make money from properties. If you are looking into this strategy, may we suggest purchasing 99 year leasehold properties (in a great location) instead of freehold (in the middle of nowhere)? Tenants are willing to fork out higher rental for (1) convenience, (2) comfort. Tenants will not pay you more because your property is a Freehold tenure (even if you had to pay the seller / developer more). Tenants will pay more if your property is near a subway (MRT), or has wonderful facilities, is nicely furnished and lets them hugely enjoy their limited period of stay in Singapore.

We have a list of properties near subway (MRT) which will be updated onto our blog soon. Your can stay updated on our blog via email or you can see the updates on our twitter page and facebook page as well.

Phoenix Property – Great Pricing and Opportunity for the First Time Homeowner Relocating to Phoenix on a new home does have its advantages. For one, real estate property taxes in Arizona are relatively lower than from where you are probably from. Climate and weather, of course, is another come-on for first time Phoenix Arizona homeowners as they can simply head up north where its cooler during summer in Phoenix. Furthermore, unlike other states constantly hounded by hurricanes, floods, and typhoons, Arizona enjoys a relatively temperate weather. No unpleasant surprises there and no additional cost for home and property insurance. Phoenix Lifestyle Sending your kids to school won’t be a problem when relocating to Phoenix Arizona. In Maricopa County alone, there is close to 1,000 schools – public, district, charter, and alternative schools. With the number of schools found in Phoenix, the only problem you’ll ever encounter with school in Phoenix Arizona would be in selecting which school to send your kids to. Arizona’s gun law also offers parents a certain degree of security knowing they will be sending their kids to school in a relatively safe, gun-free state. Things to do in Phoenix are just as boundless as its skyline and its perpetually warm sunsets.

Sales of homes – new ones and multi-family units, as well as the release of permits for new housing have also significantly increased. If we compare it to Arizona’s peak home pricing average which was in 2006, the 2003 home average pricing is still 29 percent low. But all the better for the investor. The significant increase and rebound from the widespread economic decline indicate that the economy is bouncing back while still allowing for investors to acquire properties at low prices while, at the same time, promising room for investment growth in the property value. For a state with an economy relying mostly on its real estate industry, this is noteworthy news for investors, even out-of-state ones. Phoenix Snowbirds Phoenix Arizona, with its perennially warm, sunny weather even in winter, has become one of the key destinations for northern snowbirds to migrate to during the cold winter months. This is another great opportunity for Phoenix home and property owners who have the option to rent out rooms, spaces, or even the entire property to winter visitors for most months of the year. Hiring the Help of a Phoenix Area Realtor As a state that runs mostly on it real estate industry, there are hundreds of Phoenix Arizona realtors, but only a few ones that are really good and can show you the trick of getting the best property deals at premier locations.

Real Estate Seattle Investors Doing Well

Consult a knowledgeable lawyer who is savvy about the legal aspects of your local property market.

The kind of profit one can make on the sale of a property in current use depends on the age and state of the property, its location and its inherent value on the market. As a result CNNMoney.com expects local home values to increase by 3.8 percent by the end of 2011. A residence purchased five or ten years ago will have appreciated in value for the simple reason that property rates are constantly increasing.ng.

With prices low, rates even lower and the huge inventory of homes on the market some investors are capitalizing on the real estate Seattle market. A more rewarding option is the outright sale of the property. That number will exceeds the previous foreclosure rate record set in 2009. Of course, the price a second-sale property will fetch will also depend on whether or not it is well maintained, the facilities it offers, the area it is located in, etc.

The cost that this involves would have to be adjusted in the final amount.

Such individuals seek to make a percentage of profit on properties that they are themselves currently occupying. Till the date of actual completion, rates will tend to be on the rational. Investors need to do their homework and gain sufficient knowledge of current real estate Seattle trends. Plunging headlong into property investment without a proper understanding of what you hope to achieve is not a good idea.

A ‘readymade’ property bought for the purpose of investment will have to be given sufficient time to appreciate in value. Such investors buy property for the exclusive purpose of making a profit from it, and do not utilize the estate personally. * Location is everything. Luckily CNNMoney.com has spotted some life preservers in an otherwise murky sea of real estate opportunity. It is the desire to find work that is fueling the trend of relocating to The Emerald City. However, since certain dynamics of the property market remain constant, a profit is still possible. Property investments are also done in non-developed or partially developed land.

There are chances of a loss if you don’t have an accurate idea of the state of the property market – and the changing values of your investment. Property investors fall into two broad categories, and we’ll discuss both of them briefly:

Face of the Investor Has Changed to Higher End Product

More and more investors are looking into investing in higher end products like upscale properties in premier locations in Arizona. As a state that mostly run on real estate properties for retirees, empty nesters, and winter vacation homes for snowbirds, investors see a thriving and potential market for the affluent. Luxury Retirement Homes in Scottsdale In a recent poll, most empty nesters and retirees from up north Canada prefer to settle in Arizona for several reasons. One of the foremost reasons is that Arizona enjoys a warm, sunny weather for seven months of the year. The remaining five months of the year won’t exactly be as warm – but you won’t find any Arizona homeowner shoveling through knee-deep thick snow either. Rich and affluent retirees like former professional athletes and stars, and the elderly also love the fact that almost everything is just a few minutes away. Almost every neighborhood has with it a neighboring golf courses, shopping mall and grocery, posh recreational town centers, business offices, and schools. Complete in amenities, Arizona as an ideal home is not only exclusive to the elderly, but to young families with school-age kids, too. Luxury Vacation State Being a largely vacation state, the Arizona lifestyle generally suits the laid-back rich and famous – a fact that most investors are using to their advantages with the shift from high-end to an even higher-end products. And why should one invest in an Arizona higher end product now more than ever? Gone are the days when investors had to take and invest in whatever property was available whether it suited them or not. Sales of foreclosed and distressed properties have decreased as an increase of new housing permits is seen. Now, there are more Arizona properties – non-distressed properties and new houses – to choose from than there are investors. Canadian snowbirds and winter visitors now have more than enough properties to select from. That’s not to say average property pricing is beyond affordable. In any case, real estate properties are still sold at minimum prices. Average home prices, however, have significantly gone up in a rebound from the crisis and have gone back to the average pricing of more than a decade ago. This presents the high-end investor with the opportunity to purchase properties at low prices while providing a promise of the property appreciating in value over time to its highest average price peak from nine years ago. Add to that the fact that interest rates are low and real estate property taxes are minimal at Arizona, you get a flocking of investors. What’s To See in Arizona? Similar in size to Nashville and San Diego California, areas in Arizona like Phoenix, Scottsdale and Glendale offer some of the best natural sceneries, outdoor recreational activities, and cultural hubs in the country. The diversity in these outdoor activities – ranging from nature trail hiking, biking, swimming, trekking to more relaxed golf clubs – and vibrant, pulsating, and thriving malls attract both end of the age pole, from the young to the elderly. Investors, whether individual Canadian winter visitors or out-of-state families trying to relocate to a new Arizona home, however, would do well to employ the assistance of a realtor. Even at minimal prices, major decisions involving high-end real estate property purchases can result to errors with great repercussions when done in haste and when done without the necessary information that makes for a well-informed decision. How Real Estate Agents and Realtors Can Help You Get Your Higher End Investment With properties outnumbering qualified investors, the choice between the best real estate property purchases could be among hundreds or thousand of listings. A real estate agent and an Arizona realtor can help you narrow down your choices from hundreds of listings containing hundreds of higher end properties to choose from. Not only do real estate agents, brokers, and realtors know some of the most premier and prestigious properties within their area, and contacts to some of the most luxurious foreclosed properties selling at rock-bottom prices, they also know the ins and outs of selling and buying a property from its preliminary stages, to the taxes, to its renovation and, for some investors, to its renting out. It might be helpful to note, however, that not all realtors are the same. To get the best higher end investment bargain, find a realtor with experience.
