Choosing Commercial Real Estate Developers to Invest In

Written by Posted On Wednesday, 09 March 2016 00:27

Whether it’s an office complex or an upcoming mall, investing in commercial real estate projects is a great idea. Commercial real estate developers are doing brisk business with investments coming in from all over the country from people who are looking for worthwhile investments. In India, real estate is truly one of the best places to make investments in for the simple reason that prices are soaring. Residential projects in Gurgaon are also making their mark but if you are in the mood for commercial real estate, here’s how you should go about it.

Reputation of the developer

This is the first and foremost thing to keep in mind: the reputation. When looking at commercial real estate developers, one way to gauge the reputation is finding out whether or not they have up and running projects to their name. If yes, visit some of these projects to find whether they are something you are interested in. Also, check out the website of the developers you are interested in. This will give you an idea about their reputation.


The location of the commercial project is also an important indicator of its potential success. It is a good idea to go for projects that are located in the heart of the city. If you want to invest in an office complex, make sure that the area has a sizeable corporate demographic. This will ensure that the project is a success from Day-1, which again mean profits for you.

Quality of work

For a high return on investment, the quality of work done by the commercial real estate developers you are considering is important. Today, special kind of commercial developments is the rage: where residential apartments and high-end retailing come together. It’s a great idea and is already seeing a lot of commercial success with buyers jumping on the bandwagon. However, unless the quality of service, maintenance, and construction is high, such projects may fall flat on their faces. As such, checking out any project before investing is a good idea.


As with most things, it is always in your best interest to choose a developer who has been in the business for a long time. Experience of many years will ensure that you end up choosing someone who already has built a reputation by surviving so long in the business. The job of a commercial developer is not easy. First, the developer has to find a property worth building on, and then has to wait for a  period to find the investments one needs to start the project and then, has to deliver successful results. All this takes considerable experience for fruition. So do yourself a favor and choose an experienced developer.

Doing your homework certainly helps. Just plunging into the complex world of commercial real estate in India is not a good idea. But with enough time and research, you will end up thanking yourself for your hard work.
