It could be a flat or residential plot or plot for a warehouse or factory. Coming up this month is a superb opportunity for those looking to buy and invest in real estate in India: the State Bank of India (SBI) is organizing a mega e-auction of prime residential and commercial properties on 11th September, 2015. It is at such e-auctions that you can get a home or a commercial space at rates which would otherwise be a load on your finances.

Offices, shops, residential apartments, factory buildings and other types of property in India will be up for auction. Bids have to be placed by buyers online on the specified date only.

What are the SBI e-auction benefits?

The full form of e-auction is electronic auction. People will put forth their proposals on the online platform, thereby bidding for the various properties on offer. If you are wondering why a bank will auction properties, well, the reason is generally foreclosure, meaning the property owner could not pay up the home loan availed of from the bank.

The SBI e-auction is a huge time saving process since a larger group of people can participate at one time directly in the auction process. The properties can also be sold quicker. Another benefit is that participants will get real-time information. All in all, the SBI e-auction will be a transparent process. The biggest beneficiaries are the buyers themselves as they can get property at a much lesser rate that that which prevails in the expensive real estate markets.

What to consider before bidding

It is always better to be safe than sorry is an oft-heard advice. This would apply too to bidding in the SBI e-auction! Sure, you know SBI is a reputed bank and you can expect it to have done a thorough job of checking the requisite documents. Nevertheless, here are some useful tips:
  1. The first and most obvious thing to do is read the details of the property and the bid document. Why this is necessary is that you do need to know what where the property owner's unpaid dues to the bank. This could range from basics like the utility bill to the more important property tax. Remember that as the buyer, you are the one who will have to pay the unpaid dues.

  2. Next, note how much you will need to pay as down payment right after a successful bid. 20% of the selling price? 25% of the selling price?

  3. It is a good idea to keep ready all the requisite details (valid email ID, contact numbers and bank details for example) along with the requisite documents, such as photo ID proof, address proof, any requisite receipts (e.g. for EMD if required), etc.

  4. It is not at all a bad idea to consult an expert property lawyer before you actually bid, especially if you are a first-timer at e-auctions.
