In last decade, the age of home buyers has gone down and number of home buyers has increased substantially. Taking advantage of the same boom, the developers have started to offer the customers with different types of housing projects, for their ease and to cater to their interest.
However, there are some fly-by-night developers who have entered the trade to make some quick money. They would typically release attractive advertisements and offers to lure customers. There are also some developers in every market who have delivered good projects in past but are facing huge financial crisis. Therefore, a critical part of a home-purchasing decision is background check on developer. So what should one look out for:
- Choose a developer who has delivered some projects in the city earlier
- Check out for a financially strong builder. You can do a google search on the developer to see if he has defaulted on some payment etc or taking huge loans. It’s better to avoid such a developer even if he meets the criteria 1.
While it might sound like some work, a due diligence at this stage will help you to avoid disappointments later. Some of the benefits that one can enjoy by purchasing a home through a reputed developer:
A reputed developer who has multiple projects, will have his own setup to oversee the designing and the construction process. This ensures one gets the most state of the art design, which are functionally useful and provide living comfort for a long time. Typically, a developer with a quick money in mind, doesn’t create his own setup and gets contractors to do everything. This results in compromising quality as the contractor is not bothered about his long term reputation with the end customer.
Transparency in dealing
A reputed and large developer will have a process to take care of any concern raised by a customer, something which is very important in buying a product with deep engagement. There is a process of 3-4 years during which you need help on aspects like checking progress of the project, payment reconciliation, documentation etc. Small developers don’t have CRM department to handle these queries and ever changing sales people are of no help in such situations. Also, with a large developer, everything will be recorded in writing or through a mail. Registration of projects with RERA also ensure a certain minimum transparency by the builder. The projects offered on individual basis by small builders in unorganized sector are not even registered with RERA and offer no specific details.
Easy accessibility of Home Loans
A reputed developer will already have a project approval done for home loans for its customers through reputed financial institutions. In such a case, it becomes extremely easy for a customer to get his home loan processed. In some cases, financial institutions also offer special promotions on home loans like subvention schemes or special interest rates for home loan on such residential projects.
Timely Project Delivery
Good and reputed developers ensure that they keep their commitments to the customers and therefore use modern project management techniques to ensure customer satisfaction.
