Tips for Homebuyers: How to Choose a Credible Developer

Your home is your pride and joy and an investment that has to last you a lifetime. Which is all the reason why you should choose your home carefully. Aside from important aspects like the location of the home, its neighbourhood, the amenities and ease of connectivity, you also need to choose a good builder for the project.

For those looking to buy flats in Trivandrum, you need to focus on the credibility of the developer too, as it will affect the quality of the home you end up with. Since buying a home is capital intensive, and for many, involves all their hard-earned life savings, it’s also important you choose a reliable developer with good reputation and experience.

Here are some tips on finding the right builder:

Transparent Transaction

Building apartments in Trivandrum involves a ton of legal paperwork, starting from design approval, to permission to build, and finally the Occupation certificate which means that the apartment has been built as per norms and is fit for habitation. Do ensure that your builder provides you with copies of all permits and certificates.

Construction Quality

A home has to last you a lifetime and should be built with quality materials and designed by professionals so it can withstand the vagaries of time. Go with a builder with a reputation for quality construction.

On-time Delivery

Many builders are unable to handover projects on the dates mentioned in the agreement. Choose a builder who is known for timely deliveries, otherwise you will end up paying both home loan EMIs and monthly rents for a longer period.

RERA – Compliant

Currently, builders are required to register their projects with the Real Estate Regulatory Authority (RERA) to protect the rights of the homebuyers. A RERA-complaint project allows you to see all details of the project as well as provide a redressal platform for any issues arising.


Research online to check for credibility of the developer you are interested in. Read online reviews of people’s experiences with the developer. Visit their previous projects or talk to homeowners of flats built by the developer too. This should give you a better idea of the credibility of the developer.

Hope these tips help you find a reliable developer!
