Why is Chennai’s realty situation looking up?

The real estate situation in the country has been evident to everyone for the past couple of years. The sales volumes have been coming down and there isn’t much growth happening with the sector. Prices have been steadily creeping up with no hint of a let down. This has forced end users to abandon their dreams of owning a property of their own. This is especially true of lower and mid income groups.

One of the markets which held strong despite the slowdown was the southern city of Chennai. This is because of the fact that this city was considered to be market driven by end users. When a city remains end user driven, speculation plays next to no role in where the place stands real estate wise. The growth experienced by the market will be organic and not forced. Prices rise will be a natural one when a market is end user driven as opposed to the artificial one seen in the cities where speculation has played a role. The latter does more harm than good as these artificially inflated prices will find next to no takers in the long run.

Even though Chennai was a strong real estate market, it was not strong enough to survive the lean patch that the country was going through. There have been a few reasons which had slowed down the market.

The floods which took place on December 1st, 2015 is one of the main reasons for the slowdown being seen in the real estate sector here. The death and destruction brought on by this unprecedented natural calamity had shaken buyer confidence in the city. It showed the city in a bad light in terms of preparedness to face such disasters. The lack of infrastructure really hit home. Buyers stayed away from low lying markets especially as these were the worst affected during the floods.

Another reason cited for the slowdown was the political instability being witnessed in the state. When such situations occur there won’t be a lot of confidence in the state. Many investors who can create jobs and wealth for the region might wait till the situation clears up might choose to relocate their project to another state which shows more stability. This in turn will have an impact on realty.

But things seem to be looking up for realty in the city. The sales numbers coming out of this region have given those in the sector hope. There has been a marginal increase in the number of homes being sold in the city. The inventory overhang also has come down. Villas in Madambakkam and more other such properties across the city are getting a new lease of life.

It seems affordable homes are driving this resurgence.

How to pick an area rug perfect for spring and summer

Buying a rug can be kinda overwhelming, there are a lot of factors to consider. How to choose the right rug size for your space is difficult, especially when rugs are notoriously kinda expensive and therefore intimidating. In general people buy rugs that are too small because 5×7 and 6x9s are so much cheaper than 8x10s or 9x12s, but its often going to make the whole space look chopped up and accidental so in a way you’ve just wasted that money. Measure the size of your seating area before shopping and get the closest size up from that. If your budget is tight and your room is small you can have a smaller rug that floats in front of all the furniture this is especially ok if your sofa is backed up against the wall you don’t need to waste the rug real estate under the sofa if you can’t even see that its there. But if your furniture is floating or if your room is big, get a larger rug or else it will make the room look smaller, chopped up and totally out of proportion. One of the main functions of a rug is to pull the room together, not chop it up.

How to pick an area rug perfect for spring and summer

Orient the rug to the room if you have a long rug, orient it length wise. If you have more of a chubby fat room, orient it horizontally.  This is not always the case so its a very nuanced situation. Often if you have a really long and skinny room then you might have two different seating areas and two rugs that are oriented with those seating areas, but the rugs need to cover up a certain amount of real estate on the floor in proportion to the room, so if you are orienting the rug to your sofa, not your room then often you are cutting off huge portions of the room and again, making it look smaller.  So when in doubt, go with the orientation of the room. Square rugs are for square rooms.  That is all.  Round rugs are for foyers/entries or kids room/family rooms that are more playful.

If you have a rug that is too small but you love it, then buy a large sisal that fits the whole seating area and layer your favorite rug on top . Sisal, jutes, seagrass rugs are cheapish so buying a 9×12 is more doable than a 9×12 antique kilim. Make sure that your rug is has at least 6-10″ on either side of the sofa. This is crucial. If the width of the rug is the same as the width of the sofa then you are in trouble – it will look too small and create a bowling alley effect for the property. If you have to choose which legs should be on, then choose the ones that are the least obvious. That is, if your sofa is low and closer to the wall then you are less likely to see under it and reveal the fact that its not fully on the rug.
