Posted on June 6, 2012
Investors Clinic Infratech Pvt. Ltd, a real estate marketing and brokerage firm operating under the brand name of ‘Investors Clinic’ has successfully marked its footprint in UAE within just six months of starting Dubai operations.
In a short span, the company has successfully served over 1000 NRI families and have witnessed a strong 20% increase in demand from Indian expats in the 2nd quarter of 2012. UAE based NRIs are generally looking for investment property back home (rather than end use) within a price range of 75 lacs to 1.5 crores with an assured return.
In GCC alone, an estimated 55-60 lakh NRIs are working today including semiskilled and unskilled labourers. According to banks in the Gulf, the average home loan size is Rs 30-70 lakhs and the predominant demand revolves around apartments. The overall home loan business in Dubai alone ranges from Rs 720-800 crores, according to an Economic Times report.
Honey Katiyal, CEO, Investors Clinic, said, “Rupee falling might be a bad news for India but real estate tends to gain from the development. It is the time when Non Resident Indians (NRIs) will benefit the most in Indian real estate market. The real estate market especially in Delhi NCR is vibrant with offerings for every segment. The NCR is the largest residential market in the country by sheer volume of residential units launched. Currently, it has more units than the combined tally of the other five metropolitan cities of Mumbai, Chennai, Bangalore, Kolkata and Hyderabad.”
“It is the market that will give maximum returns to the NRI investor. The reason for good appreciation is the movement of people to these places because of employment opportunities. It is the market that will never let down the investors. If we talk about end users then also Delhi NCR is the best place to buy property. The infrastructure here is incomparable to other places and it is improving day-by-day. As the places are evolving the prices are at competitive best and one can get good deals here. Since the rupee started falling NRIs are showing interest in Indian real estate market. Not only Delhi but other metros are witnessing queries pouring in,” added Mr. Honey Katiyal.
