Over Three Decades Of Crafting Excellent Living Spaces


s one of the pioneers in the Bengaluru real estate market, Sterling Developers has been known for changing the landscape of the city since 1983. With a footprint of 27 projects in the city of Bangalore, for Sterling, what matters the most is the delight that their customers get when they are home. Creating such magniďŹ cent spaces takes skills, professional expertise and experience as it is no easy feat to make a house feel like a home. It isn’t just about building a house but more over keeping the promise of a home intact along with the right budget. All of this adds challenges, but Sterling Developers gets the job done as they had envisioned, honoring the promise of a home for every client. Over the three decades, Sterling has stood the test of time and gained valuable experience, set new benchmarks and delivered high quality products. This has gained Sterling Developers the much sought-after reputation of an eminent developer who constantly seeks excellence in the real estate industry.

Sterling Developers

was founded by Ramani Sastri – Chairman & Managing Director, who leads the team from the front. With over 35 years of experience in the construction business, he brings astute direction and management to the table. His far-sightedness combined with the diligence of Shankar Sastri – Joint Managing Director, has shaped the company’s reputation for excellence in creating value for their customers. As the founder and past president of the Confederation of Real Estate Developers Association of India (CREDAI) and past president of Karnataka Ownership Apartments Promoters Association (KOAPA), Ramani Sastri is the torchbearer of the best practices and high standards across the industry among leading builders in Bangalore. Under the leadership of Mr. Ramani & Mr. Shankar, Sterling Developers has built some of the finest properties in Bengaluru including premium apartments, exquisite villas and commercial complexes. Sterling Developers' mission is to build homes that compromise on nothing. Their vision for the future encompasses property development of global standards that deliver superior value and returns to customers and stakeholders. Built on core values and competencies, Sterling Developers’ mission is to, commit to and ensure quality across the gamut of development, empower people and leverage associations to grow a business, and enrich work, life and leisure experiences while ensuring greater results. Their goal is to ensure that they always deliver top-notch quality housing at the right location as well as at a reasonable price. Their goal is to also work towards making the company one of the most respected business houses in the field of real estate and education and be known for their commitment and quality. Sterling credits Word of Mouth publicity for their success as satisfied residents are the best spokespersons. ‘There is no greater testament to this, than the fact that 80% of our apartments and luxury villas are

sold by word of mouth recommendation,’ they say. Over the years, Sterling has earned the reputation of a company that strives to continuously evolve and build the best homes for their clients as well as provide excellent customer service to ensure every need of the customer is met. Their commitment to building quality apartments and villas has resulted in 95% of the customers choosing to live in rather than rent out their homes. Sterling Developers has a large loyal customer base as their ability to deliver projects in a timely manner without any compromise on quality has resulted in long-lasting, valuable relationships with the customers. Sterling Developers began as a company in the mid-income housing segment and evolved over a period of time into a company that builds and executes aspirational products at the upper-middle and the top end of the real estate segment. Currently, they are focused on commencing the third phase of construction of Sterling Villa Grande, their luxury villa project, where they have already delivered 150+ villas. They are also focusing their efforts toward the development of the second phase of their project, Sterling Ascentia, located on Marathhalli Sarjapur ORR, Bangalore, which is home to 392, 3BHK apartments. The biggest strength of the company is the values that the company has been founded on. Sterling Developers aspires to deliver an appreciating product that the customers value and are proud to own. With the mantra

of right price, right location and right size, the company is paving its way through the thick competition. With every project, Sterling Developers has pushed the boundaries with respect to building innovation. One of their most recent projects that perfectly depicts this mindset is Sterling Villa Grande. They had a vision of building a community with state-of-the-art facilities that would help the families living there make the most of the dynamic community. This journey over three decades has followed the path of hard work and honesty.

“Through my career, if there is one thing that I have learnt it is that hard work and honesty will never let you down and will always repay you in the long run,” says Ramani Sastri - Managing Director.

“There are always many hurdles that one has to overcome in order to get to their desired position but being true to your work and giving it your all will get you to the summit.” he further adds.

Real Estate is a very dynamic industry and with the changing market conditions, there are many rules and regulations that are constantly changed or proposed. Shedding light on the industry, Ramani Sastri says,

“Real Estate is probably the only industry in India, which is governed by both state and central laws which keep changing. This has presented a constant challenge for the industry and for the company”. Despite these challenges, Sterling Developers has always focused on paying close attention to their customers’ needs and incorporating it into their designs in order to build homes that help address those needs.

Looking towards the future, Sterling Developers is now moving away from building purely residential projects to building commercial and retail projects. This is indeed a new territory for them, but they believe that broadening their horizon is imperative in the long run.

runs two of Mumbai's best schools at Powai and Thane. His keen interest in improving the quality of healthcare is supported by the fact that he is the Managing Trustee of Dr. L.H. Hiranandani Hospital, a multi-specialty hospital at Powai. All the projects are a perfect combination of excellent location, thoughtful planning, and world-class amenities. Their buildings are a tasteful mix of vivid imagination, quality workmanship and flawless execution with attention to the most meticulous details. Quality has been a real USP. Their developments with Greco Roman architecture have resulted in changing the skyline of Bengaluru and Chennai.

They try to integrate themselves and add value to the whole city, the neighborhood and the community around with their developments. Their goal is to build an ecosystem that promotes the development of integrated communities. Their biggest strength remains in the integrity with which they work and the quality of the product they create for the customers.

Growth of HOME AUTOMATION Industry in India Indian home automation market is expected to grow at a CAGR of

25 - 30% during the period of FY 2019 - 2030. Home automation market was valued at USD 1790.9 Million in 2018 and if it’s continue with the same pace it will be between 18 - 19 million USD by 2030. Somewhere I feel that one of the main factors behind this growth trend is the improvement in awareness about safety, security and energy savings in urban as well as rural areas of India. As we (arsonic) are one of the home automation solutions providers in India, we had witnessed the excitement and curiosity in rural people about the new technologies and the features. One side where developers had started implementing the smart home or digital home concept in metro cities like Mumbai/Delhi/Bangalore/Hyderabad etc. on the other hand people living in tier II and tier III cities are equally excited about the advantages of implementation of home automation system. Apart from energy saving, safety and security, people are also fascinated by the advance features of home automation solutions like control your home by mobile app or voice command from anywhere and everywhere or play with the lights as per your mood or requirements or schedule the HVAC or Lighting or Water heaters as per the need of family members or set alarms for the emergencies like gas leakage or water overflow and many more. Integration with glass touch switches has increased the elegancy of the interior and it has given a tool to interior designers to improve the beatifications of the wall or room. Integration of digital door locks with video door phone improves the security of the home as well as provides the ease to operate the doors from anywhere. A panic button is handy on unwanted or unexpected incidents like theft, fire or medical emergencies.


CXO Easily availability of Internet is also one of the major factors behind the growth of home automation industry in India as plenty of Indian manufactures have launched wi-fi based retrofit home automation solutions which are not only easy to install but also quite user friendly solutions. One side where no special or additional wiring is required to install these home automation solutions, on the other side a normal technician / electrician can easily install the home automation solutions in few minutes. Post sales service and on site assistance had improved the reach and also helped to create awareness to tier II and tier III cities in India. Still home automation industry is in early stage and considering the huge potential in Indian market, undoubtly it’s have a bright future in coming decade.

10 Most Trusted BUILDERS & DEVELOPERS to Watch in 2020


“He is happiest, be he king or peasant, who finds peace in his home”, said the famous writer

Johann Goethe. Finding a sense of comfort and security at home is one of the most satisfying feelings one can have.

With the rapid change in people’s lifestyle in the last decade, the concept of home is changing. Working professionals choose to travel for work, or settle down in cities far from their hometowns. The typical option for such professionals would be the choice to stay as paying guests. However, living in a PG means giving up on basic priorities like privacy, space, and that crucial essence of a home. HyLiv Coliving Ltd. is an initiative that is transforming how millennials choose to live. The organization emphasizes the importance of striking a balance in one’s lifestyle, and offers services that are customized to the needs of its customers. It offers a newfound urban definition of living, adding luxury to the conventional PG setups.

PRIME LOCATIONS HyLiv is based in Chennai, a metropolitan city that has seen an influx of professionals who require living spaces under a budget. Understanding this need, HyLiv offers budget friendly, yet luxury spaces in key zones in Chennai: from the city’s center, to prime locations. These include Padur, Thoraipakkam, Pallavaram, Saligramam and other key areas that offer comfort and eco-friendly environments to more than 700 people, expected to grow in the coming months.

A MODEL OF LIVING The company has been winning the trust of its clients due to the excellent quality of services provided. It is not only transforming the quality of life, but also making clients feel a sense of “home away from home”. Luxury spaces are offered keeping in mind the millennial’s budget and requirements.

It offers user-friendliness, both in the spatial and digital aspects. With this, HyLiv ensures it caters to the 3C’s of Co-living: comfort, convenience and community.

NEW-AGE LEADERSHIP Sreyansh Mehta, the CEO of HyLiv Coliving Ltd, has had an illustrious career in the real-estate sector. He has a keen understanding of the emerging needs of the people. His enthusiasm and youthful spirit has allowed him to analyze the evolution of dwelling needs and offer tailor-made solutions for the generation. He has a futuristic vision, and through HyLiv he hopes to achieve it. Sreyansh’s focus has allowed HyLiv to develop a single minded objective: to be the one solution to every millennial’s housing need. The company has adopted the Built-To-Suit housing model, offering privacy, comfort, and quality, at low prices and in personalized environments. This balance between luxury and affordability has been the reason for HyLiv’s success. Sreyansh believes that being a millennial himself has enabled him to cater to the needs of his clients perfectly. His constant focus is on evolution and transformation, while ensuring sustainability. A major difficulty he had to face was creating the sense of “home away from home” among the occupants, and developing an emotional connect to a rental accommodation. Prioritizing the multiple needs of the new generation and creating a single solution has been the phenomenal task, and it is his vision and effort that has led him and his company, achieve the “comfort of a home at the cost of a PG”. Despite the obstacles faced while building HyLiv communities, with the creativity of Sreyansh and his team, the company continues to make progress.

ENVISIONING THE FUTURE HyLiv envisions a blend of tech-friendly and user-friendly platforms, along with catering to the newest preferences of its customers. There is also a great emphasis on the longevity of its objectives, and the company insists on offering the best services every single day. The company also intends to expand to other metropolitan cities such as Bangalore, Hyderabad and Kochi in the future. By striking a balance between engagement and privacy, HyLiv is emerging as one of the most trusted developers of the country.

eal estate is one of the most preferred investment avenues for Indians, forming a sizeable part of their investment portfolios. However, the recent and ongoing economic slowdown has weighed down on buyer sentiments heavily, affecting real estate sales and investments. Investors are wary of making big-ticket investments in an uncertain market, with many adopting a wait-and-watch approach to real estate investment. However, despite the bleak outlook, the Indian real estate market still presents viable and attractive opportunities when investing for returns vs. investing for personal use. While current, near and medium-term scenarios do not appear to support speculation, long-term real estate investments hold potential to deliver favorable returns. Factoring in the cyclical nature of the real estate market, the current slump is expected to segue into an upturn, given the right impetus; a likely


outcome given the real estate industry is a key contributor to overall economic growth and governmental interest and measures to revive and strengthen the real estate sector is evident through structural reforms and financial support and funding. Increasing instances of delays in completion of projects and insolvency of developers in recent times may have eroded consumer confidence. However, over-supply and large inventories also mean availability of readyto-occupy/completed properties in varying price ranges. In a bid to push sales and offload inventory, many developers tend to offer attractive incentives and price discounts serving to lower investment costs. In a buyer’s market, as in the current scenario, employing the assistance of marquee property advisors with the necessary market knowledge and professional negotiation skills is a proven way for investors to achieve favorable price points.

CXO Even as borrowers feel the pinch of higher LTV (Loan-to-value) ratios, and failing shadow-financing options, prevailing interest rates on home loans, having fallen to record lows, make financing real estate investments more affordable. Top lenders such as HDFC, SBI, ICICI Bank, Axis Bank, Syndicate Bank etc. all offer low-interest home loans with rates starting at 7.85%. Banks passing on the benefit of rate cuts by the RBI over the years to home buyers favors leveraging investments. Also, with interest rates now pegged to repo rates borrowers stand to benefit from future rate cuts on an immediate basis. Tier 2 and Tier 3 regions present opportunities for attractive returns on investments with property prices registering higher growth than in cities and metros. Infrastructural development, connectivity improvement and growing economic opportunities underlies the rising demand for residential properties in non-metro and micro-markets. There is also a clear push for supply of and demand for affordable housing in India, another growing segment that presents affordable investment opportunities and favorable returns potential, pegged by experts to be in the range of 8% – 10%. Non-conventional forms of residential property such a co-living spaces, service apartments etc. are also forecasted to yield returns in the range of 8%-11%. Not an oft considered option, commercial real estate is touted to be an attractive segment, especially for large-ticket investments. Improved rental yields make investment in this segment comparable and favorable to other popular investment avenues viz. equity and debt markets, both currently stressed in a slowing economy. A new and emerging option in the commercial real estate segment are REITs (Real Estate Investment Trusts). REITs, akin to mutual funds, provide investors the advantage of improved liquidity and easier management of real estate investments as well as being a viable alternative to investing in physical assets. The first listed REIT in India was

launched in March 2019 by the Blackstone-backed Embassy Group with a successful debut. Although, still very new, REITs have evinced interest from a number of leading developers in the real estate market and are expected to deliver attractive long-term returns. While investing in real estate for the long-term is advisable at the current juncture, locking in funds for a long-period of time in an illiquid option such as real estate should be done with due diligence and careful assessment of associated risks. This makes identifying the right property developers key to investing during a sectoral downturn. Investors should be wary of key factors such as developers’ reputation, track record on project completion, financial standing and funding plans. RERA registered properties have the advantage of transparency in dealings with developers who are liable for non-adherence to provisions under the Act. Investors should also be wary of the effects of an economic downturn on personal finances. The effect of slowing business growth and employment instability on personal incomes and cash inflows is imperative to note in relation to an investors ability to fund investments as well as to stay locked in for a considerable period of time given the illiquid nature of real estate investments.

How IOT is Changing Real Estate Industry?


or an industry heftily revolving around cement, bricks, cranes, water, metal and metal tools, integrating the use of the Internet of Things (IoT), seems rather far-fetched. However, at a microscopic glance, the idea is prevalent and is slowly seeping its way inside the real estate industry making it even smarter. In a world that changes in a blink of an eye, incalculable devices are crawling their way into every other industry with each passing minute. Internet of Things (IoT) has made its place in homes, shopping malls, parking lots, commercial buildings, etc. For a generation submerged in technology IoT has a vital role in easing the life of every soul.

IoT is the devices laden with sensors that collect the data about an individual’s activity of the day and then provide it to the developers and builders. Giving them an opportunity to serve an individual in the best conceivable way possible. The developers can take advantage of the data to assess where the potential customer spends most of the time. What more could be added to the space to sustain the design that is in favor of the buyer, the developers and builders would have more options to explore to tailor the place according to the need to the customer, surpassing the expectations of the buyer with precise data. This will also allow real estate hunting a lot easier as the applications would display the properties that are best in the interest of the buyer.


Long gone are days when a buyer had to look in every nook and corner of the house to assure herself of no structural damage. But what about blocked drainage system or worn out wiring? The buyer now can seat back at the comfort of her home and check every minute detail about the potential house she has an interest, thus leveraging the confidence in property. All the data about the property would be at fingertip of the buyer even before the visit. IoT does the job and sends the report of the current status directly to the buyer, making the hectic process easy and reliable. Conversely, if the maintenance is due, IoT would generate a report stating the immediate need for repairs and what is about to expire thus saving time and, in some cases, life itself. The buyer feels quite safer in their place that it is equipped with the potential to warn them before the system failures are encountered. Home dwellers nowadays are looking for automatic systems that take care of mundane activities which does are mostly repetitive tasks at best, IoT takes care of HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning), lights and other essential electric apparatus. Collecting the tenant’s data, the HVAC system kicks start before tenant’s return from work, making a pleasant experience and saving the economic cost of operating the system. Lights operate on the presence of the occupant, can be tuned to turn on or off should anyone enter or leave. The brightness could be adjusted to the presence of natural light available in the room. Left a switch on in hurry to work or school, IoT can turn it off, cutting cost of electricity and saving it in turn. IoT devices make any space a smart space.

IoT devices are highly energy efficient. The heater could heat the water about the right temperature without wasting any unnecessary energy in the process. The devices can detect the temperature and flow of required water at different times of the day. Tenant’s mobile gets plugged into the Wi-Fi as soon as the occupant enters the home while being away, the Wi-Fi turns off. IoT devices will also manage the security of the places. Should there be any irregular activity, the report would be sent to the owner, making actions faster to challenge the anomaly. With security that monitors the place 24x7, a safe and reliable space can be developed without having any flaws of humans. The entrance gates to the premises can be attuned to the IoT devices, keeping away any uninvited visitors far away. A formidable control over the security of the place puts the owner at serene ease. With exponential development in technology, interoperability will enable to take the homeowner’s experience further, making viewing, buying, selling, renting a piece of cake. Internet of Things will be the driving force in the nearby future in the real estate industry.
