According to recent surveys, the Real Estate market has shown a definite trend in favour of projects that are ready for immediate possession, or slated for possession within one year. This is due to the gradual erosion of consumer confidence over the years, in the fact that builders will stick to their word and deliver nascent stage projects on time.
It has also been noted that buyers who want to actually live in the properties they are buying, are all the more adamant on a "touch and feel" experience with the property, whereas people buying for investment purposes are more willing to invest in work-in-progress projects.
The most time sensitive markets are Bombay and Delhi NCR, with almost 90% of poll respondents voting in favour of putting their money into completed projects.
