ACs, Water Heaters, Dishwashers, Refrigerators etc can contribute significantly to the electricity bills. Other than this, lighting solutions and fans can also contribute to the bill. Even though a single build or fan does not contribute much to the electricity bill; but because every house will have multiple fans and lighting solutions they all add up to the electricity bill.

What are the advantages for a buyer with the recently passed Real Estate Bill that makes it mandatory for the developer to deposit 70% of the project funds into an escrow account?

This would prevent the developers from diverting the funds from one project to another. Earlier what used to happen was that the developer would launch a project and then ask interested buyers to invest into it. The developer would then invest the money obtained from the buyers into another project. So with the help of an escrow account, this practice would be kerbed and the construction activities for a project would not be stalled owing to a lack of funds. So buyers can be assured that the money they pay for will only be used for the construction of their project and not on another project.

What are the advantages of investing in a resale property?

  • The resale market has properties priced at a lower rate than the actual market. So you can get better discounts in a resale property.

  • When compared to the developer properties where there is a slight risk of a delay in possession, in a resale market because there are a lot of options available, you can easily select a project that is nearer to completion.

  • In the short term, you get a good return on investment since you can buy properties at a discounted price and closer to possession.

Why is it important to look at the frost resistance properties of a tile?

User, Level 8 Contributor
This is because if a tile absorbs water and then freezes then it could cause the tiles to expand and subsequently crack. The frost resistance is therefore also dependent on the water absorbing abilities of the tile.
