Equity replacing debt in Indian Real Estate

Businessworld has an article on how financing options for Real Estate developers in India have changed dramatically in the recent past.
Says Anshuman Magazine, managing director, CB Richard Ellis: “India has come a long way from having no real estate financing options, where a developer entered into a join venture with a landowner to pre-sell property. From there, our markets have matured to a stage where foreign investors are queuing up to bring in equity into our markets. With FDI opening up, the real estate market will witness many structured finance products on the equity side for retail investors, like in the more mature markets.”
