Real Estate Round- up and outlook for 2017

 

Weathering the storm -As realty reels through disruptions, long-term buoyancy still in tact

Div BG color

Shishir Baijal, Chairman and Managing Director, Knight Frank (India)

The impact of demonetisation is a transient one and the economy will undergo structural changes for the first three quarters of 2017

 

 

There is never a dull moment in real estate. 2016 began promisingly in comparison to 2015; however as things stand, the year isn't expected to end on a healthy note. A major factor for this could be attributed to the policy developments by the government which in the short term have led to an unpredictable disruption but in the long run are projected to augur well for the industry as a whole. On the global front as well, developments like Brexit and theUS President elect are expected to have their bearing on the Indian real estate sector. The writing's clearly on the wall - 2016 will go down as a watershed year in the history of Indian real estate.

 

After the demonetization step having been taken, the fund flow in banks is increasing tremendously which is going to have a positive effect as far as banks giving housing loans are concerned 00ff33 66ccff ffff99 00ffcc

Realty round for the year 2016
and the expectations for 2017

. Parveen Jain, President NAREDCO & CMD Tulip

 

After the demonetization step having been taken, the fund flow in banks is increasing tremendously which is going to have a positive effect as far as banks giving housing loans are concerned. It is expected that the bank housing loans' interest rates may fall due to increased fund flow in banks and getting the bank housing loans may become cheaper. Positively predicting such a scenario, this may prove beneficial for the buyers and shall inculcate more interest in purchasing property. The low interest rates if they happen will create more enthusiasm in buyers and more people shall go for the buy in the situation of low interest rates and housing loans becoming cheaper.


As far as the Realty round for the year 2016 and the expectations for 2017 are concerned, the biggest happening has been in the later part of the year 2016 which is demonetization and which is having tremendous impacts all around. Before demonetization also throughout the year certain important developments have taken place this year like RERA ( Real estate regulatory act) and REITs ( Real estate investment trusts).


Now because of arrival of REITs ( real estate investments trusts) to attract investments and ease of doing business in the real estate market, the demand may grow on the commercial market front. Also India enjoys being the favourite outsourcing destination for global business companies like IT, manufacturing, food & health products, clothes, multifarious goods and products industries which need commercial and office space here and the demand for the same may all the more rise.

The Real estate regulatory act (RERA) is likely to bring in transparency in the Real estate sector and may lead the sector to be able to attract more FDIs. RERA establishes the state authority and vests authority on the Real estate regulator to govern both residential and commercial real estate transactions and by dint of this it shall improve the governance hold on the real estate sector reducing disputes and making the system more transparent.

The real estate sector may also be divided into the organized sector and the unorganized sector. Here also the impact of the demonetization shall be that it may bring more transparency in the organized sector and shall be a blow to the unorganized sector bringing its breakdown.
 


The rule of RERA of depositing around seventy percent of funds in a dedicated account shall ensure sufficient funds for the projects to speed up, get completed and timely delivery to the buyers bringing in more transparency. This is set to improve the feasibility of financing options availability in the market leading to increased investments and propelling more FDIs and thereby making the system more efficient.


The impact of demonetization on realty sector may be divided in two major categories- short term and Long term impacts. Looking at the current scenario, the short term impacts may be slight slowdown of sale and purchase in properties till the prevailing banking situation for people normalizes but once the things come back to normalcy, the long term impacts may be beneficial for the end-users.


The real estate sector market is basically having different segments like the primary and the secondary market. The secondary market is considered as the resale market. The impact of demonetization may bring a slowdown in the resale market or secondary market and it may give a boost to the primary market.


The real estate sector may also be divided into the organized sector and the unorganized sector. Here also the impact of the demonetization shall be that it may bring more transparency in the organized sector and shall be a blow to the unorganized sector bringing its breakdown.


After the demonetization step having been taken, the fund flow in banks is increasing tremendously which is going to have a positive effect as far as banks giving housing loans are concerned. It is expected that the bank housing loans' interest rates may fall due to increased fund flow in banks and getting the bank housing loans may become cheaper.

Positively predicting such a scenario, this may prove beneficial for the buyers and shall inculcate more interest in purchasing property. The low interest rates if they happen will create more enthusiasm in buyers and more people shall go for the buy in the situation of low interest rates and housing loans becoming cheaper.

 

"Housing for All"

As far as the necessities of the masses is concerned and to realize the mission of 'Housing for all' and due to the impact of demonetization bringing in more transparency, now the concentration shall be more on building mid segment and affordable housing which is the need of the hour. As metro cities like Delhi,Gurgaon have become the major job zone for all levels and masses are rushing to cities from far of places with each passing day, the demand for mid-segment and affordable housing is increasing manifold every day.
 


The major impacts of demonetization on Real estate sector shall be more transparency in the deals, boost to the primary market, slowdown in the secondary or resale market, total real estate market shall move further towards becoming more organized.

NEW DELHI, DECEMBER 07 :
Construction Equipment Manufacturing (CEM) legislation to come soon stated Girish Shankar, Secretary, Department of Heavy Industry, the bill will concern regulations for construction equipment which are not wheeled and use of spurious parts, which though cheap, is detrimental to the equipment said at an ASSOCHAM event held in New Delhi

 

The industry has to gear up for better quality and adoption of right technology. The government is setting up the experience centre for advanced manufacturing as 4.0 industrial revolutions is already there, said Mr. Shankar while addressing an ASSOCHAM Conference on 'Construction Equipment' here in New Delhi.

 

"Industry has conveyed to us the problems in leasing, particularly that of multiple taxation". We assure that our department will take up your case with the Finance Ministry, said Mr. Shankar.

 

India has emerged as one of the most attractive destinations for leading global investors with over 7 percent real GDP growth. The government is laying emphasis to achieve double digit growth, by following proactive, holistic and integrated approach, said Mr. Shankar.

 
"Industry has conveyed to us the problems in leasing, particularly that of multiple taxation". We assure that our department will take up your case with the Finance Ministry, said Mr. Shankar

"We have planned to build 50 million houses by 2022. In addition, we are developing smart cities and mega industrial corridors. We are also modernising our railway systems including signals, engines and railway stations. We are planning metro rail in 50 cities and high speed trains in various corridors".

The focus is on upgrading the existing airports and putting up regional airport to enhance connectivity to places of economic and tourist importance.
 

 

 

He further said, the construction sector has an important place in the Indian economy. It is the second largest contributor to economic activity accounting for about 8% of GDP. It accounts for the second highest inflow of FDI after the service sector. It generates the highest level of direct and indirect jobs employing about 40 million people and creating 2.7 new jobs indirectly for every Rs 1.00 lakh invested. The sector has major forward (infrastructure, real estate, manufacturing) and backward (steel, cement etc) linkages, implying a high multiplier effect on economic growth, almost two times.

 

The demand for construction services is expected to rise manifolds due to several factors like massive expansion of the infrastructure sector, industrialisation, urbanisation rise in disposable incomes and various government, added Mr. Shankar. In the next three years we are going to invest around 1 trillion US$ in infrastructure sector.

 

Similarly, we have planned to construct on an average 15 km of National Highways every day. We are putting up new ports and modernising the old ones through and ambitious plan called 'Sagarmala'.



"My department has also been active in reforming policies leading to creating better eco-system. We have released our first ever National policy for capital goods sector with a clear objective of trebling manufacturing base to Rs. 75,000 crores by 2025 and raising direct and indirect employment from the current 8.4 to 30 million.

 

The policy also aims to facilitate improvement in technology depth across sub- sectors, increase skill availability, ensure mandatory standards and promote growth and capacity building of MSMEs.

 

This policy document has tried to identify and address issues relating to all sectors. For construction equipment industry, major bottleneck identified are to expand capacity, need for quality checks requiring regulations to stop usage of spurious spare parts, complex taxation structure, unfriendly tax clearance mechanism and issues with the skill development, said the secretary .

 

To make essential infrastructure facilities of Industrial Training Institutes (ITIs) available to Infrastructure Equipment Skill Council (IESC) certified Training partners in a phased manner.

 

We need to continue to focus on the existing sstong government and industry partnership which will help to ensure bridging the technological gaps that exist and further create a roadmap for a robust growth of the construction equipment and machinery sector in India.

NEW DELHI, , OCTOBER 17 :
"Real estate is the best investment on earth, however, when the music stops playing, which happens occasionally, don't be the one left without a chair."
- Steven Ivy - Attorney Entrepreneur

 

And so National Real Estate Development Council (NAREDCO) with APREA have organised two day summit on Real Estate Infrastructure and Investment in Mumbai. The major focus was to highlight that infrastructure, housing and real estate are the engine of economic growth of the country because of their huge backward and forward linkages with other sectors of economy. With various initiatives and reforms introduced by the NDA Government, the housing sector is ready to attract overseas investments.

 

The intense deliberations involving various stakeholders from the real estate sector called for driving the mantras of transparency, predictability, partnerships, uniformity, affirmative actions, long term growth and sustainability in taking India's real estate sector to unprecedented heights.

Mr Rajeev Talwar, Chairman, NAREDCO and CEO, DLF said :
"RBI should expand the scope of 'priority lending', to cover lending to developers involved in low-cost and affordable housing, as cheap funding is critical for developing low cost housing projects. Availability of land for development is the need of the hour for creating affordable housing and improving infrastructure. Real estate in India could evolve in the same way as even foreign markets have evolved. Commercial real estate has already started showing signs of improvement."
Mr Parveen Jain, president NAREDCO and CMD, Tulip Infratech, said :
"The summit will surely be an ice-breaker to many of the financial challenges that our country is experiencing. The takeaways will provide for laying roapmap on which India can advance to garner optimum foreign investments. For every rupee invested in construction, 78 paisa is ploughed back to the GDP and a unit increase in final expenditure generates additional income five times. Looking at India's potential, construction sector is capable of contributing 15 percent of the GDP by 2030 and employ 75 million work force. The size of Indian construction market is expected to be US S1 trillion- 3rd largest globally"
Mr Rajnish Kumar, MD, National Banking Group, SBI , said :

"Real estate like any other industry has also experienced ups and downs." Calling for business based on sound principles, he called for time-bound completion of housing projects to check spiralling costs. There is not enough supply of land which is not in sync with demand. The cost of land, transaction fees are all contributing to high cost of property. In India, construction time is very long when compared to the west, due to which finance cost goes up. Hopefully, recent amendments with new regulatory regime banks will be willing to pass on the benefits to the home buyer. We are on the cusp of a revolutionary change be it RERA but self-discipline is a must for the industry. Our focus must be on finding new avenues in raising funds and completing projects on time.



The two day summit that included panel discussions, debates and presentations on various topics such as, India's infra and real estate sector – enabling policy framework for integrated development; Growth drivers for attracting investments, on track for affordable housing and housing for all; Where is the capital headed - India vis-à-vis other emerging markets – global institutional investors moving towards alternatives; New hotspots: Social infra, logistics and warehousing, renewable energy; Growth in AIF Funds – impact of new regulations and innovation in structures; Opportunities for AIF funds v/s FDI Fund v/s Portfolio management services.

Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT), recently launched by SEBI, will be a step in the right direction for the Indian real estate market. Providing tax incentives to REITs for investment in housing, especially the affordable housing, will give much-needed fillip for investments in the sector. The secondary mortgage market needs to be promoted by the Reserve Bank of India through Mortgage Backed Securities (MBSs) and Collateralized Mortgage Obligations (CMOs) with safeguards in place to avoid a sub-prime crisis in India.



Private Equity (PE) investments from foreign funds in Indian realty sector rose by 33 per cent to Rs 14,974 crore during last year. However there is a huge deficit and if we are to house all citizens by 2022 then it requires an investment of US $ 2 trillion for construction of 9 crore housing units; the present shortage plus additional demand of housing by 2022. The Summit explores ways of bridging the financing gap through partnerships, asset monetisation, role of HNIs and family offices.



The recent passing of the Real Estate (Regulation and Development) Act, 2016 (RERA) is set to boost investor confidence, accentuation more foreign investments into a more transparent realty sector. There has been a surge of demand for non-housing asset classes like commercial and IT/ITES space, retail, hospitality, warehousing and other income producing assets, buoyed by the enabling regulations under REITs.

 

 

 

Treat HFCs at par with private banks and
PFIs: ASSOCHAM plea to SEBI

Thesynergyonline Real Estate Bureau

NEW DELHI, JULY 26 : "I should say: the house shelters day-dreaming, the house protects the dreamer, the house allows one to dream in peace."
― Gaston Bachelard, The Poetics of Space

And so the apex industry body ASSOCHAM has sought respite for housing finance companies (HFCs) from markets regulator SEBI with a request to treat HFCs at par with private banks and public financial institutions (PFIs).

"Debt investments in HFCs should be exempted from sectoral limits and securities issued under AAA rating for long-term instruments and A1+ for short-term instruments by HFCs should be treated on par with AAA rated securities and certificate of deposits issued by private banks," urged ASSOCHAM in a communication addressed to the Securities Exchange Board of India (SEBI) chairman, Mr U.K. Sinha.

The ASSOCHAM has further suggested the capital markets regulator that mutual fund investments in AAA rated pass through certificates (PTCs) backed by mortgages should not be considered as exposure to the HFCs as these are serviced and secured by underlying pools of granular secured housing loans.

"As specialist housing loan and mortgage financiers, HFCs are an important source of efficient finance for the housing sector with almost 40 per cent share in housing loan market share," said Mr Sunil Kanoria, president, ASSOCHAM.

"Besides, HFC loan books consist of granular housing loans to individuals backed by houses financed and thus represent one of the safest types of loans, evidently as the non-performing asset (NPA) levels of HFCs are far lower than public and private banks," said Mr Kanoria.

Considering the government's thrust on finance sector together with crucial role of HFCs, it is surprising to note the SEBI's recent guidelines vis-à-vis reducing the additional exposure limit provided to HFCs.

As such ASSOCHAM has urged the SEBI to consider the socio-economic importance of the housing sector and its role in furthering the union government's mission of Housing for All by 2022.

OPINIONTATIVELY : Of course, thanks to the house … [-]
"Of course, thanks to the house, a great many of our memories are housed, and if the house is a bit elaborate, if it has a cellar and a garret, nooks and corridors, our memories have refuges that are all the more clearly delineated. All our lives we come back to them in our daydreams. A psychoanalyst should, therefore, turn his attention to this simple localization of our memories. I should like to give the name of topoanalysis to this auxiliary of pyschoanalysis. Topoanalysis, then would be the systematic psychological study of the sites of our intimate lives." - Gaston Bachelard

"But you know, as I do, that the storm will pass And that the implacable sun doesn't simply stop When obscured by a dark, pernicious cloud, Which is why I know I'll return to your house- On a Sunday that's there on the calendar- And laugh with you over a glass of grappa." - Mauricio Rosencof

 

tation and capacity building part, we are hopeful that huge funds allocated earlier for infrastructure, lying unutilized due to incapacities at the state, district and MC level would soon be utilised. I am very optimistic that the new Govt would implement the infra projects under public private partnership ( PPP) mode, because Modi Govt feels that it is the only way to boost economy", further added Mr Bhal.

On smart cities, Mr Bhal emphasised that "It can take approximately 25-30 years to build a single smart city. Hence the government should rather work to provide the smart features in various Indian 'brownfield' cities and make them 'easy and smart' to live in by use of Intercontinental Consultants and Technocrats Pvt. Ltd. (ICT), to provide public amenities and services under PPP mode.

The key features could be hi tech urban transport with intelligent signalling, ticketing and tracking system; easy living with less of travel and more of mixed land use; proper water and sanitation and due importance to environment. This can however be achieved if and only if, all stakeholders like the industry, non-government organisations (NGOs), institutes, state and Central Governments, Municipal Corporations etc work together in one direction" emphasised Mr Bhal.

Mr Shreekant Somany, Deputy Chairman, CII NR and Chairman & Managing Director, Somany Ceramics Ltd congratulated the the Finance Minister, Mr Arun Jaitly for presenting a budget of intent with significant focus on real estate and infrastructure sectors.

Mr Somany said that in spite of the fact that some of the industry concern including infrastructure status to Real Estate sector has not yet been addressed; the current budget announcements will definitely help to start a long term positive trend for the real estate sector.

Highlighting the need for a differentiated product that sustains quality over a period of time in retail segment Mr Somany said, "The retail sector of India is at an inflexion point where the growth of organized retailing and growth in consumption by the Indian population is going to take it to a higher growth trajectory in the coming decade". Mr Somany further expressed his confidence that 10th edition of CII Conference on Real Estate – "Realty 2014" will help the industry to derive a realistic and viable roadmap for the real estate sector.

Mr Anshuman Magazine, Chairman - REALTY 2014 and Chairman & Managing Director, CBRE South Asia Pvt Ltd, "The primary area requiring attention in the construction real estate sector is funding. Although the new government has announced the introduction of Real Estate Investment Trusts and Infrastructure Investment Trusts in the recent Union Budget, we are yet to see how that actually pans out on the ground. More than allocation of funds, timely implementation and capacity building are the need of the hour for the ease of transacting business in India's Realty sector."

Mr Mukund Vasudevan, vice chairman, CII Western UP Zonal Council and MD & Country Head, Pentair, "Growing real estate needs, supported by strong macroeconomic fundamentals will necessitate additional amount of liquidity into the system. Granting infrastructure status to some of the critical priority projects in the real estate sector is vital for the sector's growth as building integrated townships, mass housing colonies, special residential zone etc are more or less the same as building large-scale infrastructure facilities. Building sector accounts for 30-40 percent of global Green House Gas emissions. The construction sector therefore needs to play a responsible role towards preservation of the fragile environment. In this regard, green buildings can play a catalytic role in addressing environmental issues and concerns."

Mr Vineet Relia, COO, SARE Homes shared that the future Real Estate space belongs to those who use 'Green' technologies while building and give due importance to the environment.
