What Makes For A Good Real Estate Developer? Here Are Some Characteristics!

September 26 2019

image“Real Estate developer”. What does this term indicate to you? We presume that it’s something negative. Unfortunately, it has developed a negative connotation over all these years. It’s because of the unpleasant experiences that many customers have had with their respective developers. Now we can’t say that these customers are wrong with their allegations, because many developers have fallen short of living up to their promises and ensuring transparency. But what’s unfortunate is that even the righteous developers have to unnecessarily bear the burden of this stereotype. However, this doesn’t mean that the good people in the business have given up on their virtues and ethical practices. On the contrary, they strive even harder to ensure that their customers get the best experience. But how would you know if a developer is good or bad? Well, look for the qualities mentioned below.

Putting Customers First

Good developers understand that the foundation of their business is customer satisfaction. So, they always incorporate the needs of their customers in their work. So be it planning a new project or solving post-sale grievances, good developers always work towards understanding their customers’ perspectives, their needs, their challenges and then act upon it. It is their core guiding principle to ensure the best experience for their customers and build healthy relationships.

Offering The Best Offerings

What differentiates good developers from the rest is the passion for their work. It’s this passion that makes them create landmarks, not merely projects. It’s this passion that makes them innovate and lead the industry, not follow the herd. It’s this passion that makes them provide real-life solutions in their projects, not merely a generic set of amenities. The best example of this would be Gera’s Child-Centric Homes™. The homes are planned to solve the problem of urban working parents who cannot actively look after their child’s development on a day-to-day basis.

Ensuring Transparency & Living Up To Promises

Homebuyers are often concerned about the home-buying process. Since they are not aware of all the legal or financial formalities, and that they have to entrust a huge sum of their hard-earned money into the hands of a stranger, they always feel rather insecure. And they have all the right to be. In this case, good developers make efforts to thoroughly update their customers about the processes and costs, clarify doubts, and assure them that their money is in safe hands. Also, good developers always fulfil their commitments about construction quality, possession delivery, et al.

Playing By The Rules

Various government institutions periodically release a set of rules and regulations to ensure good practices in real estate (e.g. RERA Act). While insincere developers see this change as a hurdle in their operations, good developers see this as an opportunity to make customer experience even better. They always ensures that all their projects abide by all the relevant government rules and regulations.

So the next time you are looking for a property and researching about any builder, try to look for these qualities in them. It will surely help you to find a good one. At Gera Developments, we have been striving to ensure that these qualities manifest in everything that we do. And this is what makes us a leading real estate developer in Pune.

My son Tattva had been enrolled in the intermediate level and has been coached by the Vishwanathan Anand Chess Academy coach . Tattva has made remarkable strides and will be on his way to get his FIDE rating in November. A lot of credit goes to the mentor for his unique way of handling his students. He has been very patient while working with Tattva on his areas of improvement. In addition before the tournament the coach had voluntarily added additional classes and doubled his efforts to get a better performance out of Tattva. He has shown complete ownership which is commendable. I hope he continues to develop more and more chess players in the coming days.
