Home buyers more keen on resale market; project delays trigger boom

10 Jul 2012, ET Bureau.

NEW DELHI: Home sales in new projects across the country may have dipped in the last few quarters, but this hasn’t affected the resale market where business is actually booming.

Even banks and housing finance companies are seeing a shift as homebuyers are not willing to take a chance with delayed projects. Nearly 70% of those taking loans are investing in ready or nearly-ready homes, which is in sharp contrast to last year’s when 70% customers took loans to buy new homes and only 30% entered the resale market, says Destimoney, a company which provides home loans.

“Enormous delays in execution, liquidity crisis, high cost of borrowings and growing rentals are reasons why home buyers now want ready properties,” says Sameer Jasuja, chief executive officer of property research and analytics firm PropEquity.

Home buyers, wary of delays, prefer to enter projects at a much later stage and are even willing to pay a premium rather than live with uncertainty. PropEquity’s research shows that nearly half of the 930,000 under-construction residential units in India, scheduled for delivery between 2011 and 2013, are likely to be delayed by up to 18 months.

“Buyers are scared of an indefinite wait and are trying to mitigate risk. It is a good signal for the industry and will put pressure on developers to finish projects on time,” says RV Verma, chairman and managing director of the National Housing Bank. “Developers should look at it as a caution signal.”

“Prudence has come in as people are being careful today,” says Renu Sud Karnad, managing director of India’s biggest mortgage lender HDFC Ltd, which is expecting a 18-20% growth in home loan take-up in the April-June 2012 quarter.

In the January-March 2012 quarter, new home sales dropped by 57% in the National Capital Region, 58% in the Mumbai Metropolitan Region, and 18% in Bangalore. According to real estate brokers and consultants, a good amount of this business has moved to the secondary market.

“People are willing to pay a premium for ready properties,” says Brijesh Parnami, chief executive officer, distribution, at Destimoney. In the past one year, along with property prices, rentals too have increased considerably. In Mumbai, rentals are up between 10%-20% depending on the location, while in Noida, rents have zoomed by 30% and above during the period.

“This is putting pressure on a number of prospective buyers who are jumping at the opportunity of buying a house they can move into so that they can save on rent,” says Sumit Joshi, director of Noida-based real estate brokerage firm Real Credit Consultancy. In Pune, most end users today want to buy ready property.

Bifurcated Home Loan Process

Mr. Rahul a corporate employee has forgot to check the Home Loan sanction letter of the bank before signing it, as a result of which he is paying 0.5% of additional interest on his home loan account. This is a very common mistake that many customers do while taking a home loan. Customers blindly trust the home loan service provider and sign the documents with out reading it which is not suggestible to as a Home Loan is a Long Term (Life Time) contract with the bank.

To educate all the customers who are going for Home Loan we are giving some key points where the customer need to be careful to have this Long term contract a stress free one.

Application and Documents: The most important and key stages of the home loans process where the customer signs and provides the service provider with the income and legal documents of the property for approval.

It is not suggestible to give the information which misleads the bank as the bank verifies the information given by you in the application. Any discrepancy in the information provided will lead in rejection of your application. Submit all the documents and receipts of credit card settlements if any, this will make your application clear and increases the chances of approval.

b. Eligibility Process: After the completion of personal verification to the residence and office banks will process the eligibility by taking the customer(s) income into consideration. Some banks consider Net Earnings and some gross earning to calculate the eligibility. It is always suggested to go for a less amount of loan compare to the property cost to be flexible in paying the EMI’s.

c. Legal Verification: The second stage of the processing where banks verify the legality of the property with the panel advocates with the documents given by the customer. Banks reserve the right to ask for additional documents if needed to certify the legality of the property before giving legal approval over that property.

Banks certification of the legality of the property will not certify the property completely. If any legal discrepancies arises in future over the property purchased by the customer with the bank loan, the customer have to fight against the legal hassles on his own and continues paying the EMI with out fail.

d. Technical Evaluation: The property for which home loan was applied will be evaluated by the panel valuators in terms of the Constructed Areas, Plot areas, Market value, Horizontal and vertical deviations etc.,
