Requesting all of you who came from 2,229 cities and visited Ravi Karandeekar's Pune Real Estate Market News Blog 78,488 times and read 1,58,724 pages in the first half of 2009
Is it the right time to buy property in Pune?
Is it the right property price?Right time and right property rate were your most important questions in the first six months of 2009 and are going to remain important to you in the second half too.
You will always like to find out "Will the rates go down further?" and "What appreciation can i expect if i invest in this property today?" and you are going to remain curious about the reputation and reliability of the builder and would like to read about it.
However, in the first half of 2009, two important developments took place. First, those of you who were convinced that i provide information about right time to invest and the right property rate, started subscribing to my Ravi Karandeekar's Pune Real Estate Market News Blog or joined my Ravi Karandeekar's Pune Real Estate Blog (Google) Group or preferred to Google "Ravi Karandeekar".
Second, you started calling me on my mobile 91 98600 44110 and wrote to me (firstname.lastname@example.org) your specific questions. Your suggestions about the particular project, location or builder helped me to right useful information. Screen shots of Google Analytics posted on this blog are proofs of your contribution in making Ravi Karandeekar's Pune Real Estate Market News Blog a useful and reliable source of information for the property buyers spread all over the world.
You know that, this is just the beginning, i have to go deep, provide more in depth analysis and exclusive information which will help you to make a more profitable investment decision and select a right home for your family. I am very much sure that i will be able to do it because you will keep on writing or calling me, and even chatting on Google Talk (RaviKarandeekarsBlogs) with me, to tell what you want to know about Pune real estate and keep on guiding me to write more useful information. Right? So, looking forward to hear more from you!
From 1st January to 30th June 2009 Ravi Karandeekar's Pune Real Estate Market News Blog received 78,488 visits from 2,229 cities:Out of 78,488, obviously, maximum visits, 23,281 are from Pune. Means 55,207 visits, more than double from Pune, were from "out of Pune property buyers" who wish to invest in Pune real estate market.
Am i sounding like "Look, my blog is world famous!!". No, on the contrary, i am very proud of my Pune visitors and very much thankful to them.
Thanks a lot, all Pune visitors for helping a lot in making Ravi Karandeekar's Pune Real Estate Market News Blog more useful and authentic. You gave important tips, added your observations and provided your experiences which added a lot of value to this conversation and made it more reliable for "out of Pune visitors." Your honest and some times rude comments about me, property rates and locations were always reasonable expectations from the real estate industry. I am sure, you will keep on contributing more in the second half of 2009. Thanks, once again!
Top Content on Ravi Karandeekar's Pune Real Estate Market News Blog - 3,428 pages were viewed a total of 158,724 times from 1st of January to 30th of June 2009:Besides the home page, url of Ravi Karandeekar's Pune Real Estate Market News Blog (http://ravikarandeekarsblog.blogspot.com/), and my posts on property rates in Pune, you were interested in the certain builders and projects in the first half of 2009.
However, more than the brand value of the projects like Blue Ridge Hinjewadi or Nanded City Pune and the popularity of a builder, for example D S Kulkarni Developers (DSK) and Darode-Jog, property price of the on going projects, cancellations of the bookings and new low budget offers (Amanora Trendy Homes!) were more important to you.
In these uncertain times, you admired two positive initiatives. Rohan Builders' 'Price Protection Scheme' and Mont Vert Homes' 'Rent Today Own Tomorrow'.
Popularity of my posts and the actual bookings of Paranjape Schemes' Forest Trails Bungalow Township at Bhugaon and Kumar Builders' 45 Nirvana Hills at Paud Phata may surprise you, once again.

Is Ravi Karandeekar unbiased?You know, i make it a point to tell you that i am real estate salesman and i write this blog, provide free information, to help you to book a flat in Pune real estate market.
Some of you don't believe that i am not paid by the builder to write about their project or i am not a real estate agent and raise the question about "unbiased" view. Considering the fact that i am the pioneer Pune real estate blogger, this is an obvious concern.
Since, i value transparency in our conversation, i make it a point to tell you that i am not an activist, property buyer or a builder but a real estate salesman who has his own version of the truth ( for example , about rising property rates) and sometimes, i present story from my angle (Nanded City Pune should not have reduced the property rate to Rs. 2,500!).
My intention is to help you to buy, choose a right property for your home, in Pune real estate market and not to promote or advertise any project or a builder. Of course, i have my personal favorites (like Tanaji Malusare City at Karjat) which are based on principals and not because of my relations (good example is Mr. Satish Magar! I admire him for his Farmers Direct Investment.)
In your decision to buy a home for your family, i know that my role is very limited and i don't intend to cross the line without your permission and knowledge. So, be sure that if i decide to promote a housing project, i will declare it upfront.
I thank you for your appreciation and request you to contribute in this conversation in the second half of 2009!
