For a healthier living, there’s a dire need to have clean and fresh air inclusive of a not so toxic environment and plenty of natural resources resulting in this construction industry as the leading way of everything weighing more towards a greener edge.

With the world facing the biggest challenges when it comes to climate change, new designs and using versatile products with the principles of sustainable construction can lead to minimal impact on the ecosystem or the environment as the end result of using sustainable construction is to build environmentally positive associated buildings which lead to more greener alternatives. In an interview with HT Lifestyle, Ayan Nagpal Co-Founder of Agrocorp Landbase (P) Ltd, shared that building a sustainable future with sustainable construction is based on six principles – conserve, reuse, protection of nature, renew, recycle and let it be non-toxic and of high quality.

According to Saurabh Jain, CEO, India Operations at LivSpace, in today’s world, the terms green, sustainable and eco-friendly are used in a colloquial manner but the terms aren’t quite synonymous. Green and eco-friendly means that something doesn’t harm the planet, while sustainability at the office sets the focus on the future. He revealed, “Sustainable office interior helps minimise the negative effects on the environment and with the changing scenario, more workplaces are laying emphasis on incorporating sustainable construction and interiors.”

As we march in 2022 with a pandemic-riddled economy, the retail industry has adapted to the change and is set to enable recovery with a new phase of growth, innovation and technological trends. Although the common word circulating in social circles is that the pandemic has hit the economy hard, but the realty prices across cities have risen 30-100% across different categories. 

The recent and unusual combination of positive housing demand shocks, negative housing-supply shocks and the pandemic led realization of the importance of home security, passive income sources and the importance of space has led to a spark in the realty market in every category. 

With the adaptation of work from home culture and location and distance from work no longer a restriction, the aspirations of consumers are changing. With more time being spent at home, people who are staying in an apartment, aspire to live in a villa. People who stay in a villa, want a bigger space like a farmhouse. 

People also have realized the importance of liquidity and want to own assets which reap return.

With the rise in both commercial and residential demand, the demand for lands with clear titles have also risen to cater to these demands. 

Throughout these turbulent times, the world has learned a lot about coping, mitigating, and quickly recovering from an impending crisis. And the Real estate being a multi-faceted industry, has resonated the same sentiments. 

Thus, it becomes important to keep in view some of the key trends in the real estate industry that we foresee in the coming years.

 

More Property Tech Innovations

The property and real estate industry is still a relatively traditional industry that has been slow to adopt modern technologies. But this is changing as the industry is undergoing a significant digital transformation. Several modern techniques and solutions are being incorporated across the sector. Such new advancements have accelerated the market’s growth trajectory.

PropTech startups and scaleups are leveraging emerging technologies to enable fractional selling in turn enabling every category of investors to participate in ownership of GRADE A assets which promise a regular return on investment on capital in addition to long term appreciation. Ten years back it was not possible for someone with a small capital to invest in GRADE A assets, today it is. 

KNOW MOREBusting myths about real estate investment

GRADE A assets appreciate consistently and steadily, get rented easily and offer security and reasonable return to investors over a long term. 

 

Sustainable and Environment-friendly Residential Developments

Environment, sustainability, and governance are expected to be a path to progress in the real estate industry. With the change in climate and increasing congestion in cities because of the increasing density, developers are now laying strong emphasis on self sustainable communities and per capita space requirements. 

India is still a tradition driven country where families focus on security of the family’s present and future.

With the environment of uncertainty caused due to the pandemic, the young India wants to ensure they build a permanent roof over their family’s head and that’s a major reason for the housing category, especially the affordable segment, to witness the boom that has happened. 

With more time being spent at home, the quality of construction and well planned housing units that cater to the personal and professional needs of the families will play an important role in shaping the growth trajectory of any developer and will become an essential need of the sector.

Buy land, they’re not making it anymore.

This segment has seen a huge appreciation in the last 24 months. Be it residential use, commercial use or agriculture use, the segment has achieved 50-150% growth in the last 24 months across the country in most urban and semi-rural regions and 20%-40% in rural regions. 

Land is the raw material for any development and it’s limited in supply. With the rise in commercial, residential and recreational demand, the demand for land has increased multifold to cater to the current demand and to create a reserve for the future. 

This segment is going to see a strong demand and great upside in the year ahead. It is advisable for investors to make land a part of their portfolio as it is estimated to out run all other categories due to its limited availability. 

 

Expectations from the government

The real estate industry has always been a dominant player and has contributed greatly to the country’s economic prosperity. In the coming months, the expectations of the buyers and developers ought to rise as the sector has been the recipient of a lot of newly formulated government policies.

Industry sources feel that policies like single window clearances for projects, subsidized duties and lower loan rates will further boost the market in terms of demand. 

The current industry trends indicate that the future of Indian real estate not only looks bright but is set to do better in the coming years. There are several dynamics that will continue to impact the multiple touchpoints of the real estate industry, such as prices, buyer behavior, demographic shift, cost of raw materials in general. 

Hence, affordable, self-sustaining and lifestyle properties with a consumer experience-centric approach will lead the way for the industry in the coming year. Also I believe, Land as a sub-segment will be a front runner due its unique nature and heavy asset value.

The sector is gradually shifting towards a future where green buildings and adoption of new technologies to limit carbon and other hazardous emissions will increasingly be a larger constituent of their offering.

The Indian real estate sector is a critical component driving our economy. Niti Ayog predicts that it is estimated to reach a market size of US$ 1 trillion by 2030 representing for 18-20 % of India’s GDP. Currently contributing to 6-7% of the country’s GDP, the real estate sector is growing at 20% per annum. It is the second largest creator of jobs after the agricultural sector and has a huge multiplier effect on the Indian economy as it spurs demand in over 250 other satellite industries like building materials, paint, brick, cement, steel etc., connected to the real estate sector.

Being a mainstay and the driver of the Indian economy, the real estate sector by virtue of its business accounts for 22% of all the emissions in the country. With the demand for housing in India, especially in the urban areas, expected to grow manifold in the near future, the onus of shaping the narratives for a sustainable future lies squarely with the real estate industry. With the world moving towards adopting a sustainable approach to reduce carbon footprint and avoid catastrophic climate changes, real estate sector too needs to find ways to reduce the impact on the environment.

The COVID-19 pandemic has spotlighted the need to adopt a more sustainable lifestyle that will ensure we live a better earth for the future generations. Increasingly there is a need for urban developments that are built using principles of ESG (Environmental, Social & Governance). Leading real estate players in India like Lodha, Godrej, Tata Realty and Mahindra to name a few have started taking concrete steps towards carbon neutrality. For instance, leading real estate player Lodha, recently announced its announced its commitment to set carbon emissions targets with the Science Based Targets initiative. This is in line with its announcement to go carbon neutral by 2035.

The sector is gradually shifting towards a future where green buildings and adoption of new technologies to limit carbon and other hazardous emissions will increasingly be a larger constituent of their offering. They are working towards reducing their impact by adopting initiatives like sustainable design, conserving natural resources, switching to greener construction technology, optimising use of water, using solar energy, waste composting, water harvesting, to name a few.

The adoption is also fuelled by the consumers who are increasingly conscious of their impact on the environment by moving towards a more sustainable lifestyle. They are willing to pay premium for products and services that align with the vision of sustainability. Further, the sustainable approach towards homes will have both tangible and intangible long term benefits that will result in savings of operational & maintenance costs and other utility expenses. It also fosters adoption of sustainable lifestyle by the residents.

Another area where real estate developers are playing a crucial role is by giving a push to EV infrastructure. The biggest contributor of emissions is vehicular pollution. It is estimated that 75% of India’s population breathes air that exceeds the maximum limit set by the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS). Cognisant of the perils of air pollution for its citizens, the GOI too in a bid to mitigate the emissions risk of traditional Internal Combustion Engines vehicles and reduce fossil fuel dependency is promoting the use of electric vehicles and incentivising the ecosystem around it. It is in this context that increasingly real estate developers are building EV charging infrastructure in their developments. Easy availability of charging infrastructure will push more adoption of EVs by consumers.

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”
