Real Estate Residential Housing Segment is buzzing with “Affordable Housing” theme
Affordable housing was truly defined as housing for people whose income is below the median house hold income . Over the period of time the definition of affordable housing has been expanded for EWS , LIG , MIG I and MIG II Under PMAY (Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojna) there is interest subsidy available which aligns well with the Govt goal of Housing for all by 2022
100 projects under various stages of construction and another 150 projects ready to be launched this year (I hope there will be a proper demand and supply study done before these are announced so that there is not excess inventory in one region and shortage in another – else it will create pain in the area where excess housing is launched and inflation where there is shortage – FELLOW DEVELOPERS PLEASE DO YOUR STUDY BEFORE GOING TO MARKET)
@HOME BUYER : The govt has been extra considerate in giving various goodies to the affordable segment besides the interest subsidy , Grab Your Opportunity and Buy your home now . However please ” DO NOT BUY PRICE – BUY PRODUCT” .
Were you buying a 3 Bed Room or 2 Bed Room ? don’t get confused with the price as 25-30-35 Lacs etc make sure you buy the Product : Size , Accommodation , Location . All three factors are extremely important .Affordable Housing can be productive in Metros if land is provided by govt at subsidised price .
The other way is that Govt builds infrastructure around metros viz public transport , social infrastructure etc so that satellite suburbs are created where land is available at competitive prices and housing needs can cater to the people who cannot afford living in metros ” Reducing the value of accommodation by reducing the size is not Affordable Housing “
