Tips to Invest in a New Upcoming Project in Mumbai

It can be tempting to buy a house at a price 20-30% lower than the market rate. This is one of the main reasons why homebuyers book housing units in projects that are sold even before all clearances of the project are in place. There are many builders who receive and accept bookings before securing all the approvals because getting all the clearances takes time.

It can be a difficult task to invest in a property. If you wish to save some money, you can invest in a new upcoming project in Mumbai because properties at the launch stage are available at a low rate.

Pre-launch bookings are done by builders to raise cheaper funds. Most projects are developed in phases and even before all approvals are in place, developers start marketing the project to buyers and brokers at a discount, also known as soft launch. Since a 10-15% discount is offered to investors by real estate developers in Mumbai in order to get them into buying units, you can get hold of a property at a low rate during soft launch.

If you wish to invest in an upcoming project, here are a few tips to consider:

  • Make sure you have validated all clearances. Approximately 40-45 clearances are there and therefore, each should be studied carefully before a project is considered.
  • You should beware of too-good-to-be-true projects. Instead of falling for a lucrative offer just because it is available at a low rate, it is advisable to do your homework and find out more about the developer. You can either ask around or use the internet for finding more information.
  • When choosing a developer, don’t just look for information on the current project that you wish to invest in. Learn more about completed projects by the developer.
