Very poor article, Prices mentioned are atleast 60to80% off mark; The writer has mentioned rates that are a good 3+years old

I do not agree with you Krishnan…. I have read many articles on net and found almost same price list. If you have got latest price list please post it here or mail me at contact.amitroy@gmail.com.

Heena Says:  |  January 5th, 2007 at 4:18 pm  

i think the price quoted are old…please re-confirm. i spoke to sources which confirmed that prices are around Rs. 3000-500 per sq feet.

Saravanan Says:  |  April 8th, 2007 at 4:35 pm  

Please note that the prices noted are way off mark.

For example, I have ACTIVELY been investigating the Mylapore / Mandaiveli areas for the past 2 months and have called up at-least a dozen home sellers (direct, no brokers), the going rate for these two areas are between 1.6 to 2 crores per ground, which is Rs, 6,700 to 8,300 per sq. ft, based on the location.

Again, the authors estimate for 1800 to 2800 for Adayar is a joke at 67 lacs per ground. Man, get real, the ground value in Adayar is around 2 C min. !!! Please do not misguide people if you do not have your facts correct. What you state may be the GV but certainly is NOT the MV.

I would like to add the fact that I have also cross-verified the property prices. I have found them correct at some places and some are slightly low.

srinivasan Says:  |  May 13th, 2007 at 6:26 pm  

The valuation quoted is highly undervalued. The current price in Mylapore (Near Luz Corner is around Rupees 12000 per square feet (calculated on plinth area and not carpet area) amd KK Nagar Near pillar commands around 15000 rupees. The above prices are Registrar Office values and commands more premium. Please revalue the list please.
