Over the last few years, the real estate industry has undergone many changes. These changes happened due to various factors such as RERA, Demonetization, and GST. Currently, Indian real estate is going through a flux which is helping it to transform into a more mature industry. Also, the fact can’t be ignored that it is facing a liquidity crisis and many builders are on the verge of closing down their businesses. Due to the downfall in Indian real estate, it is estimated that only 20-30% of builders will survive this phase. Further, to survive and improve the current situation, builders need to be more customer-oriented where they need to focus more on after-sale services. Going forward, post-sales service will play a crucial role in making a builder successful. Moreover, the customer relationship will be highly valued. Providing property management services and renting support to the buyers will become a must for all the developers.To further understand the insights about the real estate industry, our team of business APAC had recently interviewed with Ratnesh Upadhyay. He is amongst one of the exciting new age real estate industry leaders. Here are some of the extracts.

Lisa Home Solutions: Identifying the Wastage and Defects

Being a leader in the real estate industry, what are the current challenges you are facing? I have seen that the Indian real estate is full of wastage and defects. If you look at any part of the value chain, you will see a lot of wastage. Today, even the last part of the value chain, which is about the sales process and the post-sales services, is in a very bad situation. But today’s developers are waking up to the new changed environment. To overcome these drawbacks, we work closely with builders to help them identify this wastage and defects to enable them to build better products and sell them at higher profits. E,g: We see a lot of lead wastage in the sales process & even in the product design, we see zero or very little involvement of the customer class. At the stage of giving possession, recording defects, and rectifying them is near non-existent. This leads to dissatisfaction and poor customer experience.

A Journey of Problem Solver

What inspired you to start your journey in the Real Estate Industry? Well, I started my career as a software engineer with TechMahindra and worked there for 8 years. Working with TechMahindra helped me gaining a very good exposure to business processes and IT capabilities. While I was in the UK, I worked on the British Telecom project. My journey in real estate started when I and my friends who were staying in the UK were trying to fix the property renting and management problem. A lot of software working professionals had brought properties in Pune and we were facing a lot of problems while trying to rent them and manage them from abroad. As they say, if we see through the eyes of problem solvers, we can tackle the problem with ease. This problem led me to start Lisa Home Solutions to help people like us who were facing similar problems.

Quality of Manpower

What are the different challenges you and your company facing right now? How are you planning to overcome them? I believe challenges are part and parcel of every organization and what makes an organization different is how you deal with those challenges. In the service industry, the most common challenge is the quality of manpower. Builders and developers who believe in serving a quality service to its customers and are willing to put extra effort into providing better quality services in order to achieve it will make the difference in the industry. We are planning to overcome this via better training and rewards for the “Customer Champions”

To end, I would like to say that Indian real estate is going to get better in the coming days. Real estate is still the biggest investment class all over the world.
