Favista Rating essentially makes comparisons between properties across different locations and cities. The rating is designed to help individuals to make an informed decision while buying/renting properties and may also be used on a broader scale by companies to decide relocation packages.

We, at Favista, believe that the inherent value in a property is not limited to just the unit put up for sale. Rather, several factors across the project, vicinity and city/state level play an important role in the decision. Hence the rating is designed to capture key points such as the facilities in a project, entertainment options near your home, easy access to amenities and the like.

We have done this by undertaking an exhaustive study of all such factors and integrating them into an index which saves you a lot of time and energy spent while researching the locality.

Fortunately, there is no particular limit to the number of properties NRIs are eligible to buy in India. (An exception is only made with respect to agricultural, plantation or farm land, which they are not allowed to purchase in India).

Factors vary according to the purpose of property purchased. A property might be bought purely as an investment, for residential or commercial purposes. However, certain common factors which make any property a worthy buy include the following factors: • Proximity to city • Connectivity to highways/airports/public transport • Proximity to important institutions - schools, hospitals, shopping complexes etc. • Job growth rate • Employment opportunities in the neighbourhood • Infrastructural amenities including adequate parking facilities, uninterrupted water and power supply etc.

When buying property both in India and in general you should: • Be aware of the costs involved • Be aware of the laws concerning property especially as NRIs who might be oblivious to the laws which might vary from the country of their permanent residence. For example, inheritance laws, stamp duty etc. • Be aware that these laws DO differ from state to state. In case of any doubt, do contact us.
