If you are searching a property in your local area, what do you do? You go to some local brokers, who take you to the available properties there, and if you like any of them, deals can be finalized. But what if you are seeking a flat in some other city or in a different locality? It is when the property sites come handy. If you make a search of such sites online, you will notice that there are a plethora of them. And they are quiet popular among masses. Let’s see what these portals proffer to the buyers and sellers.
Millions of Properties at Disposal: One of the best things about property portals in India is that they have comprehensive database of properties, available in different cities. With so many options at hand, choosing the right kind of space for you becomes a flexible thing. Plus, you just require a mouse click for locating properties that suit you. Even of you are hunting in the city other than you live in, there is no other better way to do it.
Selective Approach: The property sites allow you to do a selective search, based on several criteria. You can choose a particular flat on the basis of its location, price, type, and present status (under-construction/ready-to-move-in/old/resale). A few of them also allow choosing on the basis of area covered and the number of rooms. In this manner, you get selective results, those that match closely to your expectations.
Platform for Developers and Property Owners: The Indian property sites don’t cater to the needs of buyers alone; it offers a good stage to developers, builders, and landlords to list their properties online. Though listing requires a fee, some of the sites provide them for free. By advertising on the portals, they can get wider exposure of their projects and available properties.
Properties of every type available: It is not only the residential spaces that are available for searching or listing, commercial properties, too , find their place on these sites: shops, office spaces, studio apartments, go-downs, warehouses, plot of land etc. are available for buying, selling or hiring on rent. In the residential sections, you can hunt for single room flats, individual houses, independent floors, villas, bungalows, and condos.
Forums for Discussion: One of the main features of property portals in India is that they allow interaction among buyers, sellers, and professional advisers. Here, they can have discussions over anything related to real estate, can exchange their experiences, and gain knowledge of how things work. To add to that, the portals provide you handy tools like interest and EMI calculators.
Property Trends Displayed: A useful thing about the real estate websites is that they let you know about the ongoing rates of properties in a particular city or locality. By presenting the information in visual form(graphs, pie charts), they let you compare the price appreciation rates over past few months.
