The other point which can be considered for comment is that investments in real estate are for a limited period. It is not like other businesses where you get stuck for life. But, it is not like shares and securities which are readily cashable. The nature of the business is such that there is a lot of cash fluidity and the absolute period in which the investment in land cannot be vacated is about two to three years. That is the time taken in preparing and getting the plan sanctioned and starting construction.
Thereafter, the investment is not needed for completing construction. It accrues from advances from the flat purchasers. Bank loans are also available for construction. When the business of real estate development is combined with other businesses, there is a lot of cash fluidity in the hands of the businessmen. This point can be amplified by various calculations of investment and return etc.
