January 19, 2010

 Real-estate prices are currently very attractive in Hyderabad.


Developers in this city are finding it difficult to sell their ready possession properties due to fall in demand. To overcome the lower demand and falling prices, some developers are offering huge discounts of up to Rs8 lakh-Rs9 lakh.


“A flat costing about Rs35 lakh earlier is now being offered for as low as Rs26 lakh. Realty sales in Hyderabad are falling every quarter. The September quarter witnessed lower sales compared to the June quarter,” said Pankaj Kapoor, founder and managing director, Liases Foras Real Estate Rating and Research.


During the quarter to end-September, total sales of two bedroom, hall and kitchen (BHK) properties at Hyderabad fell sharply. Places like Secunderabad, Nizampet and Manikonda are hot locations for residential properties and developers from these locations are offering discounts of up to Rs8 lakh-Rs9 lakh.


Hyderabad-based Aparna Constructions and Estates Pvt Ltd is offering a 2BHK apartment of 935 sq ft at just Rs963 per sq ft at Kompally in Secunderabad, till March 2010, against the usual rate of Rs2,100 per sq ft.
