Residential Apartments In Bangalore

What is the first thing that comes to your mind the moment you hear someone saying Bangalore? If not all a majority would have thought of IT and technology. Yes, Bangalore truly is a paradise for all IT geeks. The IT boom has revolutionized the real estate sector of Bangalore with equal pace. The tech-savvy city of Bangalore invites all the IT geeks and professionals from around the world promising a golden career graph. This, as obvious, increases the population of Bangalore. With fatter pay packages the IT experts look for a lifestyle nothing below an international standard. This is why a demand for residential apartments in Bangalore has shot up and governs the real estate of the city.

The gardens of Bangalore for which Bangalore was once famous for are slowly losing their charm as most of the open spaces are occupied by concrete structures. In the yesteryears, the bungalows of Bangalore were a pride as far as accommodation was concerned, but now they are slowly being replaced with stylish apartments infused with all the possible amenities. Residential apartments in Bangalore have majorly been developed in South Bangalore in upcoming areas like J.P.Nagar, Jaya Nagar, Kanakpura Road and Bannerghetta Road. Sale of residential apartments in Bangalore has seen a marked increase due to the affordable pricing, security offered, amenities provided and the ease of getting home loans.

The residential apartments in Bangalore have become a favorite with the inhabitants of the city primarily because of security concerns. Independent houses are more prone to theft, murder and any other form of violence whereas the 24×7 security, intercom and CCTV facility (at the entrance gate) in the residential apartments of Bangalore make them fare more secure. The cost of residential apartments in Bangalore varies as per the location. The cost of residential apartments in prime areas like MG Road, Lavelle Road, Indiranagar etc. costs nothing less than a whopping Crore or so. Its not that the city ignores the residential needs of people with a budget not as lavish as a Crore. The outskirts offer residential apartments in Bangalore at an affordable price. 2 BHK residential apartments in Bangalore lead the sale charts of the real estate developers.

Bangalore has realized that residential apartments are the only answer to fight the space crunch and the growing pressure on land. Many reputed builders have constructed several residential townships while many are yet to be launched. Comparing the advantages of living in a residential apartment with that of living in an independent house, the former is surely a safer bet.

India May industrial output shrinks surprise 1.6%

India’s industrial output shrank by a shock 1.6 percent in May from a year ago, data showed Friday, adding to mounting gloom about Asia’s third-largest economy.

The contraction in output by factories, mines and utilities was far below market forecasts of a 1.5-percent rise while in another blow, April’s industrial output growth was revised to 1.8 percent from 2.8 percent expansion earlier.

“Industrial recovery is not yet in sight — this is definitely a surprise on the downside,” D.K. Joshi, chief economist of India’s leading credit rating agency Crisil, told AFP.

The figures marked more grim reading for Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s Congress-led government which is desperately hoping for an economic rebound before elections due in the first half of 2014.

“Industry has slipped into a serious crisis,” said business leader Rajkumar Dhoot, as the data showed manufacturing, which accounts for three-quarters of the Index of Industrial Production, had slumped by 2.0 percent in May.

Dhoot, chief of the Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry, predicted “large-scale job losses” in the country of 1.2 billion people and pointed to production shutdowns already announced by the once-booming car sector.

Despite the weakness, the central bank is ill-placed to cut interest rates to kickstart the economy with the rupee near lifetime lows and separate data Friday showing retail price inflation climbing to 10.13 percent in June from 9.65 percent in May.

“For any policymaker, it is a very challenging time. You have urgent situations over the rupee, inflation and now manufacturing,” Joshi said.

“There is no magic wand except that the government must start implementing some of the economic reforms it has been promising,” he said.

While the bank has cut rates three times since the start of 2013 following an aggressive hiking spree, borrowing costs remain high.

The disappointing data comes as Finance Minister P. Chidambaram is in the United States this week on his second trip in three months to woo foreign investment — seen as key to strengthening the currency and spurring growth.

But he is seen as hampered by political opposition at home to more steps to prise open India’s still heavily state-dominated economy and investor concerns about widespread corruption.

India’s economy has been struggling under high interest rates, strong consumer inflation and weak domestic and foreign investment, as well as a string of graft scandals.

The government has forecast the economy will grow by at least six percent in the financial year that began April 1, after expanding by five percent last year — its slowest pace in a decade.

But private economists have been reducing their forecasts in the past few months with most seeing growth in the five-to-six percent range.

In one piece of positive news out of Friday’s string of downbeat data, June’s trade deficit narrowed from the previous month as gold imports slid in response to government duty hikes to curb consumer appetite for the precious metal.

The merchandise trade gap fell to $12.2 billion in June from $20.1 billion in May, easing market worries about India’s gaping current account deficit — the broadest measure of trade.

Oil imports also fell to $12.7 billion from $15 billion in May. Oil and gold imports are the biggest contributors to the current account deficit. But despite a sharply weaker currency, June exports fell 4.6 percent to $23.79 billion.

And underscoring weak consumer demand, car sales slid nine percent in June from a year earlier, marking a record eighth straight month of decline, other figures showed, and prompting industry calls for a government stimulus package.

“This is certainly the worst period I have seen in a long time,” R.C. Bhargava, chairman of Japanese-controlled Maruti Suzuki, the country’s largest carmaker, said in an interview published Friday.

Now Is The Time To Invest In The Brazilian Real Estate Market

Brazil property prices currently present an attractive investment opportunity for foreign investors due to a number of factors. With Brazils currency currently standing very weak against the British pound and the US dollar, investors are enjoying house price bargains that are very rarely seen in Brazil.

According to a number of currency experts the Brazil Real has weakened against the British pound and the US dollar by approximately 28% over the last 12 months (June 2011 June 2012). For instance, during the summer of 2011 foreign investors could get 1.56 Reals for each US dollar, however, in todays market, investors can expect to get two Reals per dollar.

Waseem Saddique comments: What this means in terms of house prices in Brazil is that a house that cost approximately 200,000 Reals back in 2011 would have cost $128,205 in US Dollars. In todays market the value would be around $100,000.

Based on these figures alone, the strength of the British pound compared to the Brazilian Real, means that for British investors looking to invest in Brazil property it is in fact even more affordable and therefore, a much more attractive proposition.

Although many would perceive a weakening currency to be a negative issue, from a positive perspective the declining value of the Brazilian Real means that Brazilian products are much better value for money, which has encouraged phenomenal growth across the Brazilian industry sector.

In turn, the growth of Brazilian industry increases the level of Tourism to Brazil, with tourists attracted to Brazil to buy up cheap products. What this means for the Brazilian Real Estate Market is that commercial property becomes attractive to investors.

With tourism comes the need for hotels and holiday homes and foreign investors are willing to snap up bargains on private and commercial properties and land plots in a bid to take advantage of Brazils lucrative real estate market.

In 2011 alone, Brazils Ministry of Tourism reported 5.4 million visitors to the country which is an increase of 5.3% from figures produced in 2010. On the back of this growth, a number of massive hotel chains have bought land and property across Brazil in order to cash in.

This level of investment has meant that Brazils construction industry and Housetech Development companies have also seen growth in the levels of work available to them.

Estate Planning Tips

An estate plan is something that nobody gets excited about doing and they are a lot of work and stress. The stress of knowing what to do to make the process go smoothly is enough to scare people; however, with a good attorney, estate planning is not something you need to fear and worry about anymore. In the mean time, there are some tips you can do to help minimize the stress.

1.The first thing you can do is determine what each person gets from the estate. When preparing your will, specifically mention who gets what and do not leave things generic or up to chance; when you leave things up to chance in estate planning , that is when you get fights over things. Make everything as specific as you can. If you forget to prepare a will, then the state will do that for you and then that can be a real problem. 2.List a guardian for children under 18 and pets. Consider someone you trust to take care of the child or pet and has the means to do so. If you know their parenting style, even better. 3.Arrange the finances for your child after your passing. Arranging for the finances for your child will alleviate the pressure of deciding how the child will be financially secure after you pass. By stating what your child gets, you prevent the child’s inheritance from being locked by the state and untouchable. 4.Specifically state how things should be spent. If you want certain amounts of money to be given to someone for a specific reason, then say that in your will. Again, leaving things up to chance leaves room for disagreement. For example, if you want to leave X amount of dollars to someone to be spent on college, then say that so the recipient cannot spend the money on something else. 5.Keep a current list of your assets and documents. Keep list of everything you owe, everything you own, including digital files products. This will be a pain to do but it will make a huge improvement in the process when your estate is being distributed to the recipients. 6.Review and revise your will. Just because you make a will once does not mean you are done. As time goes on, take a look back to your estate plan and determine whether or not everything is still good to go and if anything needs to be revised.
