In today's context innovative options both in the residential units and loan offerings seem to be the need of the hour.

The boom in real estate that has been fueled by the ever rising incomes of individuals in India combined with easy access to home loans has brought about such new and innovative options in the residential units.

Luxury and lifestyle demand has seen the emergence of elegant builder floors as the preferred choice among many upwardly mobile Indians.

This concept of building a three or four level high building over small or medium sized residential plot and then selling each of the floors to independent buyers is gaining rapid popularity in the metros as well as tier II cities across the country.

The builder floors can be developed either by established builder, individual land owners or as joint venture of both the parties.

Basic differences between builder floors and high rise apartments

There are several differences in the basic considerations of builder floors as compared to apartments in high rise buildings.

Builder floors are low rise buildings with generally 4 floors or less whereas the high residential projects may have a large number of floors depending on the project clearances.

In the builder floors only a single dwelling unit is provided per floor which implies that a single family has the entire floor to itself providing greater privacy.

The high rise projects on the other hand have a number of 2, 3 or 4 BHK apartments on a single floor which implies more people sharing the same floor.

The cost of builder floors are inherently higher as they cater to high end customers who prefer to enjoy better amenities and privacy at a higher cost.

The high rise residential complexes cater to the average middle class who require budget housing solution with a ready to move in option. Economically speaking the apartments in high rise buildings are much more efficient in terms of cost as well as utilization of available space.

High rise complexes with more number of units will generally have more common amenities such as swimming pools, community halls, club houses and children's park.

The social life is also more inclusive in case of the high rise apartments as more families reside in the same building.

There is a better opportunity for friends or like-minded people getting together and buying all the floors of the building so as to have a separate community that will not be disturbed by outsiders as is the case in high rise buildings that have a large number of apartments.

Each floor has its own separate water and electricity connection which helps avoid disputes or misunderstandings which are common in larger communities where floors are shared by many families.

Additionally the returns that can be expected from the sale of builder floors are much higher in terms of sheer percentages as the entire floor is being disposed at a time.

A higher premium on the property is naturally expected as the new owner gets independence along with luxury.
