View Most Fearful Pune Housing Projects of 2012 in a larger map

Fear Over Pune City:

Pune is the capital of fear.

Currently, after the Delhi Gang Rape, DNA reports that, fear psychosis has gripped women in Pune.

Recently, the fear of dreaded gangster Arun Gawli has returned to haunt Pune.

A few months ago, North East students & worker in Pune ran away for fear of being attacked.

After the fearful four bomb explosions in Pune entire India was gripped by possibilities of new terrorist attacks.

No one has forgotten how 25,000 North Indians left Pune because of Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) in 2008.

All these fearful stories were reported in the local newspapers. But there is one story which is never reported in any local newspaper. The story about the fear of property price.

Fear Factories of Pune:

No local newspaper reports how citizens of Pune fear builders. No local newspaper reports how citizens fear rising property prices. No local newspaper reports how citizens fear about not being able to own a home.

No local newspapers ever report about fearful Pune real estate market because these local newspapers themselves are factories of fear.

Builders in Pune have given a contract of creating fear about Pune real estate market to these local newspapers. Mainly because these local newspapers are experts in sugar coating fear with prosperity and distribute it to every home in Pune.

Profiting from Fear:

If run like any business there isn't much profit in real estate. Pune builders know this. So, to earn exorbitant profit, Pune builders borrowed the 'know-how of profiting from fear' from the politicians. Who are 'profiting from fear' for years. And you know what? Nobody knows that! Because the fear is always sugar coated. For example, politicians profit from the fear of neighboring country or state - which they sugar coat with "I Love India" "Jai Shivaji Jai Maharashtra".

In the same way, Pune builders sugar coat fear into property appreciation. Sometimes, fear about property price rise is coated into status of living in a particular location like Wakad or enjoying amenity like floating club house. Some well known personality - like architect or actor - is used for sugar coating fear. Sometimes, hocus pocus plans and projects - D P Road - Ring Road - Pune Metropolitan Region Development Authority (PMRDA) - Pune Metro Rail - are used to sugar coat fear.

Coating may be different but fear about property price rise is common in all offers. Still the results vary. Some projects manage to create more fear than others. So, at the launch, these projects get more number of bookings than others. My blogs on these launches are read more. So, these blogs become most popular blogs on the projects launched in 2012. And these project are considered as most fearful housing projects of 2012.

So on behalf of all builders in Pune, I wish you all very fearful 2013!

  1. well said.......
    if fear is not there ,we the people will

    " Earn to live, rather live to earn "

  2. i am so sad, i am so affraid. wakad is now 4700 psft. its approaching fast to 5000 psft. soon it might cross 8000 psft. i am scared. i will never be able to own home. what should i do? should i buy at 4700 at wakad? where should i go to get basic amenities like water (without tankers) and unintruppted supply of electricity?

  3. I have a question,
    Why Sus Gaon property rates are high?? There is nothing developed much there on the other side of the highway. Still prices are as much as Wakad. You cannot price the property on the future development hopes.

    1. Good question, Pranav! Keep on asking such questions to the builders in Sus.

      I completely agree with your statement - You cannot price the property on the future development hopes.

  4. Hi,

    I am planning to buy a home in Misty trails or Forest Mist projects at handewadi road, hadapsar by bhujbal brothers.
    Please can you suggest me about the reputation of builder and their previous and both of the mentioned projects.
    My budget is of 40L and looking for 2 BHK flat.


    1. Dear Nirav your questions tough.

      I know Bhujbal Brothers. They are one of the big landlords in Kothrud. Obviously, for a while, they were developing their own lands.

      Recently, with Vatika at Balewadi they have started buying plots in other parts of the city.

      Their strength is construction. Weakness is planning, selling, marketing, customer service. Construction quality is OK.

      Worth taking a risk of booking if there is no other option.

      Can you tell me why are you planning to book with them when so many other options are available on Handewadi road in your budget?

  5. I wish I could find such informative sites more often. I regularly spend much time on just looking for some worthy sites when I can find something to think about.
