I had the same thoughts in 2008 & eventually invested in a bmrda layout (concept city spring garden at 800 per sqft), to be frank nothing has changed on this stretch. During my last visit to the layout, I received a "Welcome to TN" message from Airtel

10 years down the line, the prospects would be bright.

Confidant is good. They have been holding that land for some time now.

Well if I was you had money to spare and was not the only investment ever (house wise). I would go for it.

Why not Hosur?

There are some pros and cons.

Hosur has some good schools, hospitals and other facilities.

It used to be unsafe, quite dangerous actually but things are much better now.

Also the corruption there is more containable and construction activities are cheaper and more easy to control. Raw materials are not an headache as it is here.

You should explore a bit more before clamping down.

Why the preference for this area?

@Spitfire, that comment about water killing this city will eventually apply to a lot of places.

Btw, what is your take on South Bangalore ?

Today none is offering fixed rates, except LIC, does that indicate ALL expect interest rates to rise? IMHO looks like that for the next 2 years at least it will be about 11 or around that much on an average. In that case is it wise to take fixed or floating- fixed for 5 years @ 11%? This considering that the loan amount will be not high(avg 15-20 lacs for 3-4 years)

For less than 30 lakh Rs and less than 5 years, it makes more sense to choose floating rates.

Reason is, interest burden would not be that high if loan is less than 5 years, and that would not justify premium to be paid for Fixed interest rates.

I think what i need to mention is that starting loan is about 40 lacs and then expected to reduce to 25 in 3 years. Considering this, it makes sense to choose fixed? I am seeing the math, and its not making a huge impact if one chooses fixed and rates fall OR floating and rates rise, matters a LOT if there no part pre-payments. Hope not missing anything here!

Are you talking about the area off Sarjapur road? A friend was telling me on friday that you get land in the range of Rs.1800 per sq ft.

Yep ...thats the area i was talking about. Found that place to be a nice place to settle down, lots of greenery and also didn't see many concrete jungles around there. What i was asked is about 2000 per sq ft.

What's the general impression about the Vakil housings in Hosur? Is it a good long term investment, with a TIDEL park coming up there? Will it see a similar boom like what Whitefield saw?

Pretty impressed by the houses there, which are pretty much ready to move in, but a little apprehensive about other factors like security and feasibility of investment.

My bro, relatives & their friends recently purchased a piece of land behind wipro university, it was a group deal. But the property at this location don't have BMRDA approval and they come under panchayat land. If going for a purchase, it would be safer to immediately build your house and settle down. The location is nice & calm, but sooner or later it will be become chaotic like kaikondahalli and doddakanell

I wouldn't take a risk if the land does not have the basic approvals. Sunny brooks layout (Sunny brooks) had few problem with plots under it due to green belt thing but there are high profile people staying hence won't have much trouble. Let me check out Country side layout for vacant plots, if you bargain hard you might get at 2k psqft

Well, you don't have many choices isn't it. LIC is the only guy giving you fixed.
Go for SBI's Maxgain scheme. You can google it for it's benefits, can offset higher interest rates.
