More evidence of a bubble - Navi Mumbai has 23% flats vacant

23% of flats in Navi Mumbai lying vacant The newest destination for property investors in the Mumbai Metropolitan Region is the Navi Mumbai-Panvel-Raigad zone. Experts have concluded this based on Census 2011 findings , according to which 23% of houses here are lying vacant. They say that while investors are buying most vacant homes expecting rate appreciations ; genuine buyers are deferring purchase in the hope of a correction in prices. But some experts feel that low occupancy of houses does not necessarily imply a flourishing investor presence. Now a days Times of India too has been reporting on the sorry state of Mumbai real estate. The ads by the builders are down significantly from the huge booklets to just a few pages.
