VASHI: As vis­i­tors flocked the 16th prop­erty ex­hi­bi­tion or­gan­ised by CREDAI-Builders As­so­ci­a­tion of Navi Mum­bai (BANM) on Satur­day, talks of re­ces­sions seemed re­dun­dant.

The ex­hi­bi­tion has been or­gan­ised at City and In­dus­trial De­vel­op­ment Cor­po­ra­tion (Cidco) Ex­hi­bi­tion Cen­tre in Vashi.

Happy with a foot­fall of around 70,000 peo­ple on the se­cond day of the ex­hi­bi­tion, par­tic­i­pat­ing de­vel­op­ers and or­gan­is­ers are ex­pect­ing more on Sun­day.

BANM trustee Bhu­pen Shah said, “The re­sponse has been over­whelm­ing. We had around 20,000 vis­i­tors on Fri­day, which jumped to al­most 70,000 on Satur­day.”

He said, “Peo­ple are not just vis­it­ing, they have also been book­ing houses and mak­ing se­ri­ous in­quiries. We are ex­pect­ing a foot­fall of around 1.5 lakh on Sun­day.”

Man­ish Bhatija, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of Par­adise group and vice-pres­i­dent of BANM, said, “We have had sev­eral book­ings al­ready. The num­ber of vis­i­tors is huge and there is keen in­ter­est in the prop­er­ties on of­fer.”

“There are so many more op­tions such as Navi Mum­bai Air­port In­flu­ence No­ti­fied Area (NAINA), new Cidco ar­eas and the re­gion be­tween Navi

Mum­bai and Pune. The buyer is spoilt for choice,” said Bhatija.

“New ar­eas and bet­ter civic ameni­ties are all the right in­gre­di­ents for the real es­tate mar­ket and the buy­ers,” said Ra­jesh Pra­jap­ati, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of Pra­jap­ati group that has a pro­ject in Dron­a­giri.

He said, “There is no such thing as a prime area now, as peo­ple are look­ing for new ar­eas which they know will be­come prime in no time.”
