Vandan Vihar, Most Desired Cozy Apartmets in Pune.

When we think about buying a house, we take into account a number of locations like Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Bangalore, and more. But frankly, we have to negotiate somehow, either in terms of the price to be paid or the location of the apartment or the surrounding environment, and a lot more, which deep down makes us feel a little sad.

But what if I say we have a city that fulfills all our wants and expectations at a reasonable price?

Don’t believe it?

That dream-satisfying city is Pune! This city has thrived in all aspects. It already has giant IT parks and also preparing to adopt more such IT and business parks. Also, the city has major shopping centers, hospitals, schools, universities, and all the other facilities one really wants. If we speak about ease, it provides decent connectivity from bus to train.

Now that we are satisfied, Pune is going to make us feel great in all aspects. Let us know about the home that is going to make us feel the same concerning its price and amenities. We will be talking about the stunning project named “Vandan Vihar” by GVN Developers at Wadki, Pune.

Let us begin with procuring some knowledge on the builder, GVN Developers Pvt. Ltd is a leading company for real estate production in Pune. Premium standard homes are built by the company. The business works in the residential housing market and has an outstanding track record of delivery. With premium products, furniture, and fittings, GVN Developers build and design spaces and provide residential properties that embody contemporary architecture and practicality. With strong financial strength, high corporate governance, and a strong execution track record, they enjoy excellent customer relationship management and support. They also have an experienced management team with a proven track record in real estate development and have delivered homes before time with high construction quality.

GVN Developers has so much to prove them trustworthy that we are left with nothing to question about but to know about the wonderful project they are offering. GVN Vandan Vihar in Wadki, Pune is a residential project by GVN Developers. The project is scattered over a gross land area of 1.5 acres. GVN Vandan Vihar has a total of 2 buildings in each tower, with parking on 7 floors. The project is made up of 164 units. On the southern edge, Vandan Vihar is surrounded by hills, offering spectacular views from the project’s upper floors. The project is designed with ultra-modern shear wall construction technology that makes construction solid and resilient along with spacious interiors for all weather conditions. Homes are designed in such a manner that at least 3 sides of each house are exposed to natural light and ventilation in this project. Because of the Dive ghat hills surrounding the project, the site provides fresh and pure air.

The 1 BHK and 2 BHK apartments in Wadki were built with superior features and facilities for a lifetime of luxury. Vandan Vihar provides facilities such as a clubhouse, naturally ventilated yoga hall, open-air gym, multi-purpose lawn, play area for girls, Ganpati Temple, Gappa katta for senior citizens, and jogging track.

Besides the benefits arising from the apartment itself, its location adds primacy to the project. It might seem that Wadki is on the outskirts of Pune. The truth is, however, that it is situated just 18 km from Swargate bus depot and 21 km from Pune railway station, taking about 50 minutes to ride. In addition, several workplaces such as SP Infocity (7.6 km), Magarpatta city (12 km), Kharadi IT Park (17 km), NIBM road (15 km), Ramtekdi Industrial estate (13 km), kondhwa (14 km), etc. are within 40 minutes of the position of our plant. Most notably, just 3 km from our project site is the Pune Municipal Corporation boundary. With a travel time of up to 30 minutes from the project site, all basic facilities such as schools, hospitals (OPD clinics, maternity hospitals, specialist hospitals, Hi-Fi Super-specialty Hospitals), malls, etc are located.

Whether you want to reside, give it on rent, or looking for a property to invest in. The project offered by “GVN Developers Pvt Limited” is not just available at an affordable price but also comparatively budget-friendly making “Vandan Vihar” a worthy and non-negligible property to invest in for all the desired purposes.

Getting a home loan in Pune for such a grand property may seem somewhat difficult but this property is listed under the HomeCapital home down payment assistance program. GVN Developers have included a home down payment assistance in order to help people buy their dream home early in life rather than waiting to accumulate funds. How this works is that the buyer can avail up to half of the home down payment requirements for buying the property. This will be an interest-free credit to be repaid in 12 months. Without any hassle, you can buy your dream home and still have your savings for your future plans.

HomeCapital provides the Home Down Payment Assistance program to connect these apartments with more homebuyers – a program that also financially helps homebuyers in early rather than late buying their dream home. HomeCapital is the pioneer of the Down Payment Assistance (DPA) program for homeowners.

The Dreaded PowerPoint Presentation

Visual aids can be a powerful tool for grabbing and maintaining the attention of an audience. If we compare recall statistics of people who attend conferences, it is said that most people can recall around 60% of what they see and hear; just 40% if they only see a presentation; and a mere 25% if they only hear what is presented. So we know visual aids are helpful, whether they are used in one to one sales situations or when presenting to groups large and small. It is also obvious that the most used medium for constructing and delivering the visual element of a presentation for the vast majority of speakers is PowerPoint. Yet the best PowerPoint presentation in the whole world will not compensate for a poorly delivered presentation.

If you make a presentation without visual aids, it becomes very difficult for the audience to remain focused on the messages within your presentation. Not only do visual aids involve the audience, but they also help to reduce the amount of preparation necessary for a successful presentation. Many people begin with constructing the slides first then add the script later.

Visual aids can tell the audience many things about you and your message. A presentation is infinitely more effective when it is partnered by visuals, as they help to tap into the emotions of the audience. They can reinforce your subject, stimulate greater understanding amongst the audience, focus attention, and clarify complex points. There are however some potential downsides to using and even relying on PowerPoint.

Technology failure
It can easily happen: You have everything planned for your presentation, but there is an electricity cut; you have copied everything onto a memory key but when you attempt to copy it to the venue’s computer, the file is corrupt; you manage to copy everything to the computer you are using, but the version or setup is totally different, and all of your graphics have changed for the worse.

You need to have a contingency plan. At the worst, you should be able to deliver your presentation either without visuals, or arrange to have a flip chart available in case you need it.

Avoid anything which is technologically complicated, such as web connections or live video links. More times than not, they go wrong.

The audience switches off
Most good and highly experienced presenters know when the presentation is not working, and are able to change mid-stream in order to engage the audience. Poor presenters, including the highly nervous, probably don’t even notice the audience and carry on regardless. Why do audiences switch off? Reasons include:

  1. They see your opening slides, which have no graphics but contain rows of bullet points. Make the font size large and try and keep the number of bullet points down to three per slide. In fact, if you can avoid bullet point altogether, it would be even better.
  2. People get annoyed, because despite having all the words on the screen you insist on reading them all out. Don’t read out all of the words on the slide – it will drive the audience mad! The slide is supposed to support the words you use – not be the same.
  3. The slides have a background colour and font colours that make the words difficult to read: red, orange and yellow are difficult to read on a screen.
  4. Your talk is supposed to last 20 minutes and you have 40 slides to get through. Giving a presentation takes longer than you think. The fewer slides you have, the more the audience will thank you.
  5. Don’t look at the screen. You should face the audience at all times. Every time you look away from the audience towards the screen, the pitch of your voice changes and those who rely upon a combination of your voice and your lips become totally confused. By using a laptop you should be able to have the presentation in front of you, with the screen behind you. You don’t need to look at the screen.
  6. Never get someone else to operate the slides for you. It’s twice the risk, and people get annoyed if you continually ask the operator to move the slides forward or go back. If you’re no good with technology – don’t use it.
  7. Don’t use clipart – it’s naff. Use real photos. Remember – a picture tells a thousand words! But make sure they are of a good quality and don’t pixilate on screen. The more you stretch a picture the more it will blur. If you’re presenting figures, use a chart, but don’t overcomplicate it. Less is more.
  8. Keep the transition of slides simple. Having effects like ‘flying in’ are distracting and can be annoying.
  9. Don’t use a laser pointer. The red dot is always so tiny that it cannot be seen and controlling it is very difficult. If you want to point to something, use the curser, which can be increased in size.
  10. Prepare your presentation slides weeks in advance of the actual presentation and practise and time your presentation for ten times as many minutes as the presentation is supposed to last. During the intervening period regularly go back to them and consider reducing the number of words and the number of slides.
  11. Don’t hand out a copy of your slides prior to your presentation. People should be coming to hear the speakers, not to collect notes. In addition people will always go through the handouts whilst you’re speaking and quite often will have reached the end long before you’re finished speaking. Not only will they miss what you’re saying but they also be annoyed that you’re still going through your talk when they already have reached the end.
  12. Whatever you do – keep to the timing. There’s nothing annoys an audience more than having expected a presentation to last fifteen minutes for it to take half an hour.

During Negotiation

Upon entering the board room or any other negotiation with due preparation (see other article before negotiation), then consider adding these techniques to your repertoire. These are all good solid people skills that will put people at ease and reflect on you positively…whether you’re in a divorce settlement and it’s furniture or homes up for grabs or you are a bigger business out to merge tempoarily with a smaller business, these skills will be invaluable.

Start each negotiation with a friendly handshake and decent eye contact. Be sure as always that you have dressed in a manner that the other party will not find offensive. In other words, make sure you are taking this negotiation seriously by trying to prevent hindering viewpoints in advance of entering the negotiation.

Consider telling a joke. Like most good talk show hosts, be sure to tell a story to break the ice. It reminds people that though there are dollars and cents to consider, you are also a human being. It puts you and the other person at ease and it also makes you look good. Always choose to tell a story that makes you sound human or revolves around you in some way. Telling a joke about an ethnicity or minority is completely out.

There is one amazing talk show host that comes on at midnight on the CBC called George Stephanopolous. He started his show the other day with a first hand account of how he thought a racoon had come into his house through his window and he was freaked out. It gets worse. Makes him look funny throughout and worse yet, it turns out to be a cat. He told this slice of life for a good five minutes.

Even I was sitting there after ready to listen to every word this man said. I was blown away by this reminder that despite his great job, he is human and naturally, that meant I would place value on what he said.

Try to quietly lay out the ground rules after the story. Remind the party that your negotiating in of why you are interested. Try to have a few good reasons. Point out the positives that may be accomplished but of course, let them know that though you are negotiating, it may take time to ‘do the deal’ and that is to be expected when so much is at stake.

Good manners now come into play. Remember good eye contact. Remember to maintain your composure, your posture throughout with good eye contact. This reflects well on you that you are willing to listen. Chances are the other person will offer less than they would actually deliver. Though you would be tempted to pepper the person with the presentation with question after question, hold onto them by taking notes. Unless there is a serious misunderstanding, do not try to ask questions until after the presentation. This could break the flow of their presentation.

While in negotiations, avoid negative body movements such as sloped shoulders. This means disinterest. Make sure not to tap or shuffle. Maintain a studious composure. Don’t doodle! Whether you’re a big company thinking of merging with a little company for a project, the bigger company must come off good if not better than the smaller company. You want people to be in negotiations with you, otherwise you would not have come to the meeting. Your secretary would still be saying that you’ll phone them back.

Listen to the presentation and take notes. It means that you’re interested and that they do have points of interest. It also helps you to stay on task.

When it is a natural break or the presentation is over, ask questions.

To maintain complete control in a negotiation, you would not offer one square thought but of course, this would not go over well with a company that spent time on a presentation. Praise the good points in the presentation and ask a few questions. Perhaps, direct questions to find out where you meet in terms of negotiations.

Put down some points on paper that you both can mutually consider and make a copy. Sketch these out with possible scenarios of how it works in conversation. Try not to get hung up in the details. These can be tied up later.

A first negotiation typically leads to a second negotiation when you do not immediately agree to everything. When things mean so much such as two businesses coming together for an event, you need to make sure that you consider such things as reputation. Will partnering with this company adversely affect you? Are the stakes too high? Do you want more guarantees? What are the expenses? If your company covers one thing, what will their company cover or are the budgets merged?

In terms of settlements, agreement on the first round is almost unheard of and the reasons for this are plentiful. So make sure that after a reasonable time, you end the proceedings and ask for a second negotiation after you both have considered all the points that bring up.

Those who rush to the altar are often disappointed so key here is having more than one negotiation and repeating many of these same successful people skills, great skills to improve your negotiation repertoire.
