Did you visit Viva Sarovar Ambegaon Pune?

Did you book a 2 BHK Flat for Rs. 24 to 28 lakhs (approx all inclusive property price) in Viva Sarovar Ambegaon Pune?

On this Monday and Tuesday, my blog on the launch of Viva Sarovar Ambegaon received maximum hits. So, out of all projects, launched on this Akshaya Tritiya, 16th May 2010, i decided to visit Viva Sarovar first.

I got down at Katraj Depot. Took a six sitter to Dattanagar Chowk. When i was walking on the Jambhulwadi road, i started wondering about the maximum hits for my blog on Viva Sarovar. When the launch ad was only in Sakal, Marathi Newspaper in Pune, and not in Times of India or in any other English newspaper, how come highest number of people searched Google to know more about Viva Sarovar and landed on my blog?

When i was amusing myself, i realized few more things about Viva Sarovar.

1) Like Amit's Bloomfield & Astonia Royal, Viva Sarowar was trying to present itself as if it is in Ambegaon! When it is not in Ambegaon Khurd or even in Ambegaon Budruk but in Jambhulwadi - or may not be even Jambhulwadi!

2) Viva Sarovar, has named itself as Sarovar - Lake, used lake in the perspective and in advertising but never mentioned the name of the lake - "Jambhulwadi Lake"!

3) The launch ad had the location map which showed both ways to reach Viva Sarovar -
1) from Sinhagad Road by Mumbai Pune Expressway and
2) from Katraj - Dattanagar - Jambhulwadi road. How many property buyers would have gone by Katraj - Dattanagar - Jambhulwadi road - like me, not so glamorous road out of these two and actually booked the flat in Viva Sarovar at the property rate of Rs. 2,650 to 2,800 per sq.ft. when most of the projects on the road were priced at Rs. 2,000 to 2,400 per sq.ft.?

However, from the point, when for the first time, I saw a small part of Jambhulwadi Lake and Mumbai Bangalore Bypass Bridge, i stopped thinking and lost myself in the view - till Mr. Prasad Deshpande, Marketing Manager, welcomed me in the site office of Viva Sarovar. Only to get completely hypnotized by the charm of the Jambhulwadi Lake, development at the site and the sample flat and property prices at Viva Sarovar.

If you had been there - then, for sure, like 125 other property buyers, you must have booked a 2 BHK Flat at Viava Sarovar. So, instead of asking you, "Did you visit...?", i should have asked you, "Did you book a 2 BHK Flat in Viva Sarovar?". Right?

Those of you, who haven't booked - means not visited - please, have a look at my photo blog - Visit to Viva Sarovar, Jambhulwadi Lake, Ambegaon, Pune!

  1. At least this time around, have you yourself booked a flat now?

  2. Thanks for asking! I am, originally, real estate salesman and, now, Pune real estate blogger.

  3. I am one of those 125 who have booked a flat there. Yes, 2800 psf may be on the higher side as compared to other projects there, but will they really give the pleasure of a cup of tea sitting in the terrace enjoying the view of that lake & cool breeze. Practically speaking, there might not be much facilities like shops, public transport etc nearby as of now but I was looking for a low budget second/weekend home near the city. Always missed a chance of buying at DSK Vishwa due to budget reasons.
