Smart Homes: ‘Technology’ is the New ‘Luxury’

Technology has made everything rise above their physical forms and be available on several virtual platforms. Everything from paying bills to buying cars can now be done at the click of a button. Real estate has also become advanced and Smart Cities in India have also come up. The new name given to these technologically efficient homes is ‘Smart Homes’. Smart homes are not only a rising trend in the market but also the need of the hour.

What are Smart Homes?

A Smart Home is a technologically intelligent house. It offers a comprehensive network of integrated devices that are used to monitor and control your home functions connected with a single operation interface which may be a mobile, tablet or even PC. It offers an integrated solution for communication, entertainment and security functions of your home. The mundane tasks of your home can be carried out even when you are not physically present at that location. Drawing the curtains, watering plants, heating or cooling the swimming pool water, switching the light on or off- all this can be done remotely.

How are Smart Homes beneficial?

Smart homes are definitely beneficial in the sense that they make things convenient and efficient for the residents. It is extremely helpful for the differently abled and senior citizens who find it difficult to carry out such tasks by themselves. Many a times, we forget a few things before leaving home such as switching off the lights or turning off the stove. But if you are the proud owner of a smart home, you can be sure about it and do the same sitting in your office or while on the way. Since all other devices in a smart home are connected to a single interface, they can all run on your command.

How to find the right Smart Home?

Smart Homes are now developed by some of the well-known developers of the country. We still lag behind many other countries who have expertise in home automation services. In India, the concept is still in its initial stage. Home automation services can also be installed in an older home. Several companies offer such services. You must first know what you need and then take the right decision according to your choices and budget. Also, don’t forget to get the guarantee documentation before signing the deal. Converting your traditional home into a smart home is a costly affair. So spend your money wisely.

The Essentials of a ‘Luxury Home’

Every other real estate billboard on the highways is about ‘Luxury Homes’. But have you ever wondered what gives a project the title of a ‘luxury home’? No, the ostentatious facade does not make it luxury; it is a lot more than that. A combination of a few elements compiled together make a home lavish and give it the status symbol everyone runs after. Today we will talk about some such elements.

The Essentials of a ‘Luxury Home’

Size

Yes, size does matter, especially a lot in the real estate world. The first thing about luxury homes is the size. It usually starts with 3 BHK and can go upto 6 BHK for a villa like construction. Attached washrooms, balconies with every room and vast hall spaces are needed to brand a home as luxury. Garage, a state-of-the-art kitchen island and dining hall along with servant’s room are some of the modern definitions given to a luxury home.

Height of the Rooms

The floor to ceiling height also matters to grant that status symbol to the luxury projects. It should practically be more than 12 feet for a luxury home. It is one of the most important criteria to be fulfilled; otherwise the project cannot be classified as luxury.

Security Features

One does not splurge on a luxury home to get the old conventional features. Something extraordinarily modern is a must. State-of-the-art security measures are offered in the homes such as CCTV surveillance, video door phone, round the clock personnel supervision, etc.

Posh Location

Location is very important for ultra-luxury homes. You would not want to live in a palatial home located in a crowded middle-class area. A sophisticated neighbourhood boasts of good connectivity across the city, green surrounding, proximity to the airport and adequate availability of all civic amenities. Living in a classy neighbourhood surrounded by the homes of well-known people is everybody’s dream.

Lavish Amenities

Once all the above criteria are fulfilled, then comes the amenities. Swimming pools and gymnasium are now available in all projects. The amenities that classify as luxury include infinity pool, spa, jacuzzi, barbeque pit, wine cellars and custom-made outdoor kitchens and patios. Inbuilt heating and cooling systems are also provided in some of the projects.

Class and Quality

It is true that class comes with a better quality and with the brand name that is attached to the project. Luxury homes boast of a high quality construction and design by international architects and planners. This professional difference adds to the luxury factor as well as to the cost of these projects.

Luxury homes have a professional difference from the traditional non-luxury projects and this is what defines them. The extra price is paid for these luxuries and it is well worth it.

Serviced Apartments: Bringing ‘Home and Hospitality’ Together

A serviced apartment is a fully furnished apartment available for short term or long term stays, providing all hotel-like amenities. The term ‘serviced apartments’ is an umbrella term covering all the brand models, some with high levels of service and other will less fancy-frills helping the guests and operators maintain their budget. Serviced apartments also offer services such as cleaning, utilities, Wi-Fi, TV, etc.

These apartments can range from budget to deluxe and the rooms can range from studio apartments to two or three bedroom apartments. Studio apartment is one spacious efficient unit which can be used as a living or sleeping area with a little kitchenette and separate bathroom.

These luxurious serviced apartments are affordable alternatives to the expensive hotels offering the comfort, space and luxuries of private residences coupled with 5-Star amenities. These apartments have a good workforce and a horde of world-class services pampering the guests.

Some such services offered by these apartments include:

  • Housekeeping services like daily cleaning, laundry services, etc.

The serviced apartments are built with the clients in mind. They can be short stay accommodation or long stay rentals for corporate or leisure travelers.

Retail Realty Segment: The Future of Commercial Real Estate in India

The retail sector in India has been growing at a tremendous pace over the past two decades and so is the Indian ‘retail realty’ segment. The number of organized retail industries in the country has witnessed an annual growth of 20 percent. After the government allowed 100% Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) for single-brand retail, more groups have started venturing into the same. The trend shows that the retail industry will expand in the coming time- first in the metropolitan cities, then in smaller areas.

Seeing the growth, a number of developers are coming up with their retail shops in NCR, Bangalore, Mumbai and other big cities. To concentrate on a wider investors segment, they have also come up with innovative payment plans and assured return schemes. The assured return schemes are those under which the builder promises to pay monthly return to the investors during the construction period on a predetermined rate.

One of the most talked-about virtual retail projects in NCR is H&S Boulevard Walk. The project offers state-of-the-art virtual retail spaces. These virtual shops are offered in the upper basement floor meant for setting up the hypermarket. The non-demarcated shops in this project would offer a great exposure to the retailers. The mantra for a retail market to be successful is that it should be in close proximity to the residential areas. Strategically located in Sector 4, Greater Noida West, Boulevard Walk is surrounded by thriving clusters of residential and commercial developments because of which it is going to experience good value appreciation in the future.

Virtual retail spaces have a rather complex investment structure and need to be properly analyzed before investing. As a smart investor, you should assess the locational advantages, laws related to the industry, commercial trends, customer reach, etc. Moreover, the rental returns in the retail sector have shown an annual increase of 10-14 percent over the past few years and the trend is likely to remain the same.

So, if you want to put your money into the real estate industry in order to multiply it, retail real estate is an option you should not strike off. These are innovative spaces and earn yields in proportion to inflationary tendencies. Stand-alone commercial and retail setups are going to form considerable parts of the Indian realty sector in future.
