The collaboration between the firms is called ‘The Vineyard’ and is aimed to be completed by March 2023. The project is located around 45 minutes away from Hebbal, said to be one of the most potential investment zones around Bengaluru.

The Vineyard shares proximity with landmarks such as the upcoming Bren Sports City, Manipal Hospital, D-Mart and Doddaballapur Town to name a few. This farmland is spread across 22 acres and is available in land capsules of 0.25 acres and 0.50 acres.

Ravi Vishwanathan Chairman of Grover ZampaMr. Ravi Vishwanathan, Chairman of Grover Zampa Vineyards said, “To give life to this unique concept of creating a luxury vineyard farm community, we wanted to partner with an organisation that had hands-on experience in Bengaluru’s premium farmland market. This could be the first of many such vineyard communities where the farm owners can have a firsthand experience of growing the grapes that go into making award-winning wines. This is a win-win situation for everyone. While the wine enthusiasts and investors get a piece of the vineyard along with a farm, our winery benefits from getting the finest quality grapes from these communities.”

More people these days prefer a vineyard stay rather than a resort stay for their vacations, but introducing a vineyard in your own house can now make you feel like you’re in paradise every single day.


Tell us about Agrocorp and its journey?

What started as a quest to acquire land for self-use, became a huge opportunity when we realized that the land acquisition sector in India is still disorganized. And so, Agrocorp was started in 2012, to simplify and organize the concept of land investment while building value that not only streamlines the process of land investment but makes the whole concept effortless and more desirable. We’re committed to constructing groups through agreement and innovation, one acre at a time. Agrocorp’s prescient is to alternate the landscape and experience of purchasing and promoting real estate by cultivating a spirit of community.

How do you think about the idea to have a vineyard in the backyard?
Agrocorp’s team is constantly innovating about the possibilities and value additions that we can package with our land investment propositions.

Owning a managed vineyard is a serene experience and also a great opportunity for enthusiasts who travel the world for these experiences. Bengaluru is the vineyard hub of Karnataka because of the climate and topography which permits us to develop wine-producing varieties within the region.

With Vineyard in your background, we want to create a unique farm experience for our customers.

How will it change the real estate sector in Bangalore?
This will be a great prospect for investors to become a part of this exceptional offering where the investment is asset-heavy and at the same time, it adds a lot of value to the whole family’s lifestyle. After covid the trend has changed, people formerly arrived at the city for entertainment but now people seek space, nature, and engagement. People are looking for investments that have development potential but also add to their lifestyles. Owning a farm has forever been an aspiration to some people and our company has been fulfilling this since 2016 in Bengaluru. We have developed and delivered more than 300 acres to our customers where we also undertake the management of these farms.

Are you planning to expand this concept in other cities?
Yes, we are planning to expand this concept to other cities. We seek to extend to Delhi in the next year as and when the government guideline framework allows. We are waiting for the policy to get approved and we will be undertaking such unique opportunities there as well. The land is the most rewarding asset and also such acquisitions are a great way to conserve land, increase the green cover and at the same time generate income.

Explain the process.
Those who want to fulfill their dream of acquiring a farm can get in touch with our team and they will be guided towards the investment procedure. The customer can visit the location, choose their farm and enjoy the experience post the possession of the farmland. All our offerings also come with management responsibilities and legal due diligence.

Any challenges faced?
Every individual concept comes with a set of challenges but the right team and technical support can easily overpower those challenges. We have invested over 12 months of research and development to bring together all the elements required to fulfill this aspiration of possessing a managed vineyard. With our years of experience and team of qualified professionals, we can proudly say that the only thing the farm owner needs to worry about is the amount of time he can spend on the farm.

What are the Bengaluru real estate scenarios as of now? How has it changed owing to covid?
The disruption caused by the pandemic is slowly dissolving and the real estate sector is bound to flourish. Larger homes are now going to be preferred by buyers as companies continue to offer remote working policies amid Omicron variant threats. Homebuyers are now relying upon larger homes and localities with access to adequate healthcare assistance, security, and open spaces. Bengaluru is evolving as one of the topmost choices for real estate investment among forthcoming homebuyers. This is due to its prestige for the lowest delay in handing over apartments to homebuyers. Digital home buying, robust connectivity, and infrastructure are also some of the reasons.

Future plans.
We want to develop 500 acres under the vineyard model over the next 3-5 years. We also want to develop farm communities across different geographies as we feel it should be in every investor’s portfolio. We are also working on some prop tech solutions which will be revealed at the end of the year.

shop for a vineyardClick here to read: https://www.moneycontrol.com

A Bengaluru-based startup allows you to buy a piece of the experience. Here’s what should you consider before you write that cheque for a managed farmland and shop for a vineyard or piece of it .

Owning a vineyard is the stuff of dreams but ideal land parcels are hard to find, are insanely expensive and usually come with paperwork so messy that all the wine can’t get a person through it.

A Bengaluru-based startup promises to set all of that right.

Agrocorp Landbase has developed a 22-acre project called The Vineyard on NH648 (Satellite Town Ring Road Corridor). Interested people can buy plots of 0.25 acres and 0.50 acres, which will be developed and maintained as vineyards. The produce from here will be sold to Grover Zampa Vineyards, and the income will go to the landholder.

Managed farms

Founded in 2012, Agrocorp Landbase sells managed farmlands. It claims to have developed 300 acres of such properties.

In The Vineyard, a quarter of an acre comes for Rs 65 lakhs. A large portion of each plot—around 60 percent—will be set aside for the vineyard. In a quarter acre (10,890 sq ft), 1,000 sq ft will be a multipurpose zone where anything can be grown, 1,000 sq ft will be for a lawn, 900 sq ft will be for the house and 600 sq ft for the parking.

What if a buyer decides that they don’t want a vineyard anymore?

would like instead, like maybe fruit trees but the management of that farmed land will then be left to the buyer, said Ayan Nagpal in an interview to Moneycontrol.

“What we are offering is an experience of a vineyard. Growing and maintaining a vineyard is a highly technical job, and with Grover on board, a buyer will have 30+ years of experience to guide him/her,” he said.

Grover Zampa Vineyards’ chairman Ravi Vishwanathan has said they were partnering with an organisation “that had hands-on experience in Bengaluru’s premium farmland market”.

Vishwanathan’s statement released to the press said, “While the wine enthusiasts and investors get a piece of the vineyard along with a farm, our winery benefits from getting the finest quality grapes from these communities.”

Buyer’s checklist

Second homes and farmhouses are becoming increasingly popular among urban Indians, according to Saurabh Mehrotra, who heads Knight Frank’s pan-India advisory business.

Managed farmhouses tap into that trend.

“Historically, farmhouses were being self-developed, and this came with various risks,” he told Moneycontrol.

There are risks associated with land titles, regulations and management of property post-possession, which includes bringing in utilities such as power and water, and ensuring there is no encroachment. Management post-possession can be prohibitively expensive, said Mehrotra.

Managed farmlands promise to eliminate these risks at a shared cost.

While this sounds perfect, there are things to consider before putting your money into one of these developments.

“The biggest thing to ensure is that the very reasons you are choosing to invest in a managed farmhouse are going to be taken care of by the developer. That the developer is not a one-time player, and that they have experience not just in land development but also in the management of the farm property,” said Mehrotra.

A buyer should check the service-level agreements (SLAs) or key performance indicators (KPIs) for or any kind of performance measures. These have to be written into the contract, said Mehrotra.

Also, the buyer should check what kind of land control the developer has. “If you are buying into a concept, check how that concept is going to be managed and for how long. Check what is the commitment of the developer beyond the point of sale,” he said.

Returns on investment?

Such farmlands give a capital appreciation of 1-2 percent on an annualised basis, and revenue from agricultural yields will usually be 3-4percent, he said.

The value appreciation comes from the management of the property. “Agricultural land is available in plenty in the country. What makes it unique and therefore will drive up the demand is what are the services that come packaged with the land, that includes development and post-development services,” he said.

So before you go shopping for a piece of vineyard or an organic farm or even a coffee estate, make sure you have this buyer’s checklist in hand.

Agrocorp envisions to make land Investment safe, seamless and a hassle-free experience for young India with their specially tailored services varying from farm management, advisory and land investments

Feb 2022: Agrocorp Landbase, might be the boldest young company in the real estate space, an industry that has been plagued by outdated practices and philosophy, to revolutionize land ownership and reinvent the land investment segment. The Purpose of the Twins, Arush and Ayan, is to make land investments accessible for everyone. The new generation of India feels like the space hasn’t kept up with the pace and demands of new India and thus many are reluctant to invest in land, which is a shame as a land investment can not only reap abundant financial returns but also bring about positive changes in one’s attitude and perspective of the world. Agrocorp was painfully aware of this disconnect in the market and has made significant strides to bridge this gap over the last 10 years, and they are just getting started.

Agrocorp began to land bank with a sole motive to consolidate land with clear legal titles. Agrocorp’s ethics of entering only into the clean lands have kept it litigation-free and investor-friendly. Agrocorp has served many reputed business houses and families over the years for their land needs like land for business, farmhouse investments or long-term land investments. They classify land into different sub-segments and create an investor-friendly ecosystem for authentic, quick and safe land transactions. They are targeted not specifically to anyone’s economic group or age or locality rather towards anyone who feels left out with the way things are going in the industry. Their main aim is to induce into the industry, the ease of doing business with trust and safety, which the land investment segment has always been devoid of. They recognize that young India wants to invest in the land but also strongly demands safety, ease of transaction and upgrade in status and self-image; and Agrocorp does a beautiful job of facilitating the fulfillment of these unique desires.

The folks at Agrocorp are achieving their goals of a more exciting and beneficial real estate industry in the successful roles of land advisory, land investment and managed farm communities. As Land advisory, they guide their customers for their specific requirements and structure and facilitate land acquisition for them from start to end. As land investment giants they help their clients fulfill their goal of financial freedom by structuring investments in pre-identified growth zones which are bound to reap returns over a stipulated period of time. The major distinction from advisory here is that this is for investors who want to invest in land with short, medium and long-term goals. Agrocorp’s role starts right from identifying the zone itself and entry and exit parameters are fixed as per the goals of the investor. Their most innovative role is engaging in Managed Farm Communities: This is a niche that was developed by Agrocorp and introduced in the Bengaluru market to enable investors to invest in land in an organized way in 2016 for small ticket size investors.

The company boasts an impressive record of completing various ambitious projects. In the last 5 years, they have delivered more than 300 acres of land to the satisfaction of 500 happy families. Their latest success story is The Palm Reserve. The Palm Reserve is an exclusive community of 51 farms located just 45 minutes away from Bengaluru international airport on NH 7. It’s a unique model under which every investor who buys a farm gets a developed and secure farm with managed vegetable, fruit and herb garden in their farm. By investing in farm communities the investor gets invested in the most rewarding asset class i.e. Land and at the same time adds value to their family’s lifestyle. The investment starts from only Rs 25 Lakhs onwards making land investment accessible to a majority.

The company aims to generate up to 300 crores in revenues from 3 new managed farm communities within 45 minutes of the city center of Bengaluru in the next two years. These communities will be a gateway for the young india to invest in land in potential growth zones while owning an asset that will offer a sustainable eco-friendly lifestyle amidst nature for their families in a secure and convenient structure. The plan of Agrocorp is to transform more than 200 acres of land into flourishing and sustainable farm communities. They plan to integrate solar power and water harvesting in these communities in order to make the communities completely self-sustainable and independent.

This will be a major milestone in their pan-India ambitions. Their growth is propelled by favorable law changes in various states as governments all across the country realize a flourishing real estate industry has to be supported by appropriate laws.  The founders of Agrocorp, Ayan Nagpal & Arush Nagpal state, “ Even though we have been serving customers for more than a decade there is a feeling we are just getting started. We hope to completely dismantle and re-assemble the space in the image of young India. The possibilities are endless”

Busting Myth in Real Estate Investment

Busting myths about real estate investment .Lack of knowledge about the real estate sector is a primary reason why many shy away from investing here. FPJ clears some misconceptions associated with it.

 

Talking about real estate and investing in real estate arises from completely different perspectives. Be it logical or confined by self-beliefs, people find it difficult to talk about real estate investments.

People Beliefs

Traditionally, people are keen on following myths, especially the ones related to real estate. Myths hamper one’s investment process, resulting in investment hoaxes. If used properly, real estate investments can prove to be a boon in terms of securing one’s future. Following are some of the most common myths and misconceptions and deal breakers that play a major role in keeping people away from investing in real estate.

Myth: Real estate investments are all about debts

Reality: No debts are risk-free but when talking about real estate, one can look at the brighter side. Imagine paying off the amount within 30 to 40 years? Specifically, home loans, which one can repay by selecting a proper payment system. It’s about having a secure mindset and properly-timed investments, and returns will eventually fall into the correct places.

Myth: Real estate investment won’t secure one’s future

Reality: Real estate investment is all about savings. Savings are the foremost step when talking about having a financially stable and secure future. Investments in gold and equity are prolonged beliefs followed by one generation to another. However, by investing in real estate, one can beat inflation and end up with a better financially independent future.

Myth: Having an agent is not a big deal

Reality: Wrong! Having an agent plays a big deal when selling, buying, and investing in a property. Agents have more knowledge about current market values and conditions. A good agent will put his/her customers’ interests first by providing them with the best deals. Not having an agent can lead to getting misguided resulting in wrong or fraudulent investments and losing money.

Myth: Real estate investment lets one experience heavy expenditures when thinking of buying a new house

Reality: Well, one needs to be mindful while buying a new house. A new property requires repairs but it’s not about heavy expenditure if one gets it checked by a home inspector. This will give you an idea of what needs to be fixed or completed. This process results in less expenditure and you end up owning a good property.

Myth: Real estate investments are for rich people 

Reality: Nothing can be tagged as ‘only for rich people’. Markets provide every individual with equal opportunity. It’s about having thorough knowledge and digging up details precisely when one plans on investing. If one puts their mind at ease and tries to learn how real estate works, anyone can make a profit by investing in real estate.

Conclusion

The above mentioned are some common myths and misconceptions associated with investing in real estate. Lack of knowledge about the sector is a major hurdle people face when talking about it. Hence, it becomes easier for fraudsters to manipulate and spread false information.

Though the market keeps changing, gaining knowledge about real estate investment will come in handy for the long term. Investing in real estate is all about keeping updated and well-informed with the ongoing market trends when talking about buying or selling.

Potential Growth Zones

Click to Read: edtimes.in

Agrocorp which has reimagined the experience of buying and selling land. They believe that land ownership is a fundamental right for all, not just a few.

What started as a pursuit to acquire land for self-use became a huge opportunity when Ayan Nagpal, Founder and Director of Agrocorp, realised that the land investment sector in India is still unorganised and in the hands of a select few. And with this vision, Agrocorp was conceived in 2012 with the intention of simplifying and organising the concept of land investment while creating value that not only simplifies the process of land investment but makes the whole concept effortless and more desirable.

We went all candid with Ayan Nagpal and let’s read what he has to say about Agrocorp and vineyards.

1) How and when did this idea of launching a vineyard come to your mind?

As a leading land developer, our team is continuously identifying potential growth zones in the country and innovating on value addition that we can do on land by creating new experiences for our clients.

While travelling to the US, we visited Napa Valley and had a great experience with the family. The experience of a vineyard is on every traveller’s bucket list and we are excited to bring that experience to your backyard with our project “The Vineyard”, where an investor adds to their portfolio by investing in land in a high potential growth zone and at the same time makes this experience a part of their lifestyle.

Bengaluru is the wine country of Karnataka with the right climate and topography, which worked to our advantage geographically.

2) What is your selling point for this project?

As they say, Invest inland, they are not making it anymore. But investing in land is a science very few understand. The land is the most time tested and rewarding asset class in the long run, but the location and potential growth factors of the area are very important aspects.

Our selling point is to invest in land in a location where there is growth potential, and while your asset grows, you can enjoy the asset as a lifestyle because of the value additions that we offer on the land.

The Vineyard is located just off the new Satellite Town Ring Road being developed around Bengaluru, which is attracting a lot of SMEs and IT companies because of its great connectivity to the airport, affordable land rates, and great road network and connectivity to the other parts of the city. With the density increase in the long run, the land prices are bound to jump and give good returns.

3) Who is your target audience?

Our mission is to make land investment organised and a hassle-free experience in the country and available for everyone in the country.

With the increase in disposable income and purchase power, young India wants to invest but fears the hassles that come along with land investment. With an organised process and complete due diligence, we will ensure we offer land as an investment to every household.

We cater to all segments like HNI’s, Corporates and First Time Buyers through our various product lines.

4) What are your next project plans?

Ans: We aim to develop 300+ acres around the concept of the vineyards over the next 24-36 months. In addition to this, we plan to expand to residential community development built around the concept of modern architecture, self-sustainability, world themes and nature focussed.

5) Are you planning to expand this concept to other cities? Explain the process.

We are currently operating in three geographies, namely Delhi NCR, Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka, with Bengaluru as our headquarters.

A vineyard requires certain climatic conditions and cannot be developed everywhere, whereas land as an investment is a countrywide requirement. We are already catering to advisory for HNI’s and corporates in all three geographies, but we plan to expand our product line of farm communities to other cities as the policies allow.

6) What are the challenges and hurdles you faced while launching this project?

Land acquisition and development is our expertise and our history over the last decade clearly shows that.

We have transacted more than 700+acres and developed and delivered 300+ acres to 600+ families without any litigation.

The Vineyard is only 45 minutes from Hebbal and while acquiring land closer to the city, aggregation was a challenge as for a very long time, Karnataka limited the sale of agricultural land to only a certain section, but the transaction still took place, creating legal complications in the title.

With the abolition of Section 79A, 79B & 80, transacting has become easier but finding clear title lands is still a challenge. We had to scrutinise around 200 acres before we could find the right land for developing this project.

Winegrowing is an art and a highly technical task. The second challenge was to have the right team in order to ensure the vineyards setup and maintenance were done the right way. Our exclusive strategic collaboration with Grover Zampa Vineyards Limited helped us achieve that.

7) What are the Bengaluru real estate scenarios as of now? How has it changed owing to covid?

Bengaluru is the Silicon Valley of the country and is growing rapidly. Appreciation of real estate is directly linked to the possible increase in the population of the city. With the growing work opportunities and migration happening from other parts of the country to Bengaluru, demand for residential, commercial and land is bound to grow. Post covid the trend has changed, people have realised the value of space and those living in apartments aspire to a villa, and those who own a villa, aspire for a farm.

8) What are your future plans? How do you see yourself 5 years down the line?

We have major goals for the organisation in terms of expansion. We are focussed on developing communities on global themes centred around nature and self-sustainability with modern architecture.

​​​​​​​We also plan to expand to different cities across the country and increase our footprint.

This is all that Ayan has to say. We wish him all the best for Agrocorp.

When you are in your 20s and early 30s, you have the biggest asset to your credit — time.
By starting to invest during the early stages of your career, you get a lot of time to research, learn, and achieve, advises Ayan Nagpal.

 

It’s quite flattering if you have to kick off small; but it is to your advantage to start investing early.

Most often people tend to invest late in their 40s and 50s. However, young investors think differently.

Since they are tech savvy and capable, they study investments with an open mind and are flexible to change their strategies with time as they acquire more knowledge from their success and failure.

Traditionally savings are considered as a well planned, calculated investment. However, saving money can’t be considered as a sole reason or purpose of investment.

Alternatives such as mutual funds, crypto currency have opened new doors for investors alongside real estate.

Before making any investment you have to evaluate the following factors:

1. Conceptualisation and planning: Do you have your finances under control?
2. Value addition: Is it adding any value to my present or future?
3. Ease of transaction: The process and timeline of investment and returns.
4. Trust and commitment: Are you aware of the risks, terms and conditions?

While real estate comes with its fair share of risks, if you plan it right and have the right resources, owning a home is often more profitable than renting one.

The value of real estate investment can be considerably increased by following a slow and steady profit approach.

Here are some tips to help you make a smart investment:

1. Make an effort to purchase and sell

You can buy a low-cost foreclosure home or invest in a property that needs minor repairs, spend a certain amount of money improving it, and then resell it for a better price.

If it’s a large space in a prime location, you can even keep a part of the house for yourself to stay and rent out a portion for extra income.

2. Admiration of value

While renting it out may seem like a convenient option, do not forget that rent amounts also inflate with time.

When you are young and have low-key liabilities, if you are able to identify and invest in a potential space, you will notice how your investment will soar as you retire.

Unlike other investments, property is a tangible asset that can be leveraged according to one’s needs.

3. Consistent riches Or cash flow

An average real estate owner generates nearly about 6% or greater cash flow in a year.

This is the net income you receive from a real estate investment after all your expenses are covered.

4. Tax Benefits

The government offers tax breaks for property depreciation, insurance, maintenance and repair expenses, legal fees etc.

Real estate investors are at advantage of getting lower tax rates for their long term investments .

Even REITS (Real estate investment trusts) offer potential investors a way to invest in real estate without having to own, operate, or finance properties.

When you are in your 20s and early 30s, you have the biggest asset to your credit — time.

By starting to invest during the early stages of your career, you get a lot of time to research, learn, and achieve.

At this juncture, nothing can stop you.

Even if you make mistakes, the impact would be minimal as you will have the time to correct it and reap benefits.

5. Advantage of loans

When you are young, you can afford to take a debt and build a dream.

You also get a lot of time to pay off your loans, unlike someone in their 40s or 50s.

Remember, as you grow older and your source of income and remuneration multiplies, you will be able to pay off loans faster than you intended to.

For example, if you take a Rs 10 lakh loan to invest in your early 30s, you will have 30+ years to repay your loans. But as you advance in your career, you may be able to foreclose the loan in less than 10 years.

There are several benefits of investing early. You can use your knowledge of technology to target and network with the right people to build and sustain your investments.

Remember the sooner you sow today, the faster you shall reap with good returns.

 

 

With timely investment planning, you can retire early and can tick off your bucket list by exploring the world, trying out new cuisine and everything else you’d dreamed of without having to worry about having a roof above your head.

Agrocorp makes it a “Reality” in collaboration with Grover Zampa

Owning a vineyard is a luxury many don’t get to enjoy. Until now. For the first time in India, it is now possible to own a managed vineyard.

This innovative land investment opportunity is being developed and maintained by Bengaluru based futuristic real estate company Agrocorp Landbase Private Limited, in collaboration with the Grover Zampa Vineyards Limited, India’s leading producer of premium wines.

This one of its kind collaboration between Agrocorp Landbase Private Limited and Grover Zampa Vineyards Limited is called ‘The Vineyard’ and is aimed to be completed by March 2023.

The strategically planned project location would excite anyone who has got a keen eye for land investments in and around Bengaluru, both from the perspective of upcoming developments and accessibility from the heart of the city.

Located on NH 648 (Satellite Town Ring Road Corridor), it’s one of the most potential investment zones around Bengaluru.

The project is located only 45 minutes of scenic drive away from Hebbal in a high potential growth zone. Developed with strict legal due diligence, ??the project is located only 10 minutes from the Doddaballapur Cross on the Dobbaspet road, connecting Devanahalli to Dobbaspet, and surrounded by major development activities.

The Vineyard shares proximity with important landmarks such as the upcoming Bren Sports City, Manipal Hospital, D-Mart, Doddaballapur Town and many more.This farmland is spread vastly across 22 acres and is available in land capsules of 0.25 acres and 0.50 acres.

The founders of Agrocorp, Ayan Nagpal & Arush Nagpal quoted, “Themed urban development in India will be a new sunrise sector in the real estate industry of India and Agrocorp’s vision is to take it forward with this maiden project.” They further state that vineyard growing and management is an art and a highly technical job. With an exclusive collaboration with Grover’s, we bring on board 30+ years of vineyard development and management experience that a managed vineyard such as this one needs.

Excited about this innovative project, Mr. Ravi Vishwanathan, Chairman, Grover Zampa Vineyards says, “To give life to this unique concept of creating a luxury vineyard farm community, we wanted to partner with an organization that had hands-on experience in Bengaluru’s premium farmland market. This could be the first of many such vineyard communities where the farm owners can have a firsthand experience of growing the grapes that go into making award-winning wines. This is a win-win situation for everyone. While the wine enthusiasts and investors get a piece of the vineyard along with a farm, our winery benefits from getting the finest quality grapes from these communities.”
