Having a big lavish property always features in an individual's bucket list. However, given the sky-reaching prices of real estate today, it looks like a distant dream. Experts of the field have time and again cautioned how in the recent times, real estate purchases and sales have dipped. Creating a synergy point between the buyers and sellers, group home buying is a unique catalyst for both buyers and sellers.
Often perceived as a new trend in real estate market, group home buying goes back 50 years. To be precise, group home buying has been plugged as a practical solution for property buyers looking to get attractive discounts. In earlier days, when a stakeholder wanted to buy a flat, a builder would give him a final offer. But with the advent of the group home buying concept, like-minded buyers can now join hands and close the property transactions at attractive prices.
ET Now: What are you buying on the muhurat day?
Raamdeo Agrawal: I have still not gone to the trading floor. I will definitely be doing something, but I was just wondering what to buy in the sense that there is so much of excitement in the market now. Certainly in the last 2-3 months, the mood has changed so much that it looks that we are in for a good time. So I have little money left. I will go and buy the same stocks what I have in our portfolio. So that is it what I am going to do.
ET Now: So would it be SBI BSE -0.85 % , Central Bank BSE 1.48 % as well as Hero MotoCorp BSE -0.36 % again or are there newer names that you would want to punch in this Diwali?
