Based on the present-day scenario, he is not optimistic to invest either in tier-1 or tier-2 cities. He suggested investing in real estate for those who has an investment horizon of 5-10 years.  if you still want to invest in tier-2 cities, select the city carefully and check the city has the factors to emerge in future.

One must need to take extra precautions to invest in tier-2 cities because of diligence of property titles and developers, which is more difficult. Subsequently investing in cities other than the one which you reside brings its own set of responsibilities. You cannot inspect regularly if you invest in the property in city or town other than of one’ s residence. The rent collections and the certain duties need to be fulfilled by the landlord in a reliable manner if it is tenanted.  You are not stationed in the same city or town, you’ve to face a lot of problems if the landlord or the person who send rentals every month is not trustworthy.

Besides, you lose track of things including property is not maintained properly and the statutory charges to be paid to local authorities will be kept pending. With this, you’ll have to face legal trouble automatically from the concerned government authorities whether it is municipality or panchayat or urban commission.

On keeping all these things in mind, Nair wanted to invest in a tier-2 city or town where you will live closely or often visit. Or else, you can opt the city or town where your close friends or relatives are staying, who can help you to manage the property.
