Rationale for the deal
I have been in the business of farmland sales and development and have hands-on experience in developing multiple projects including Sandalwood, Mango, Papaya, Teakwood and Malabar Neem Farms.
Based on the consumer feedback for years to have a property that can serve the dual purpose of farmlands and also a weekend getaway.

Total Market Valuation
With no competition for this type of product in the market and sizeable customer base, the project scope is over 500 acres.
With the increase in middle class size, hectic lifestyles, uncontrolled price rise of real estate and increased incentives from govt are few of the factors that would drive future real estate predictions.
The recent speech by the finance minister of India made it very clear that govt has allocated funds for the development of 100 satellite townships near major cities and also earmarked funds for affordable housing. The very mention indicates the change in trends in affordable housing and entertainment sector.
Our Farmsteads would pioneer a new vertical in getaway homes that would give a luxury of having an additional abode surrounded by nature and also the prospect of earning additional tax free green income.
Use of financing
The basic funding required is towards the land purchase advance payment for the farmlands, farming and a model 1 acres farm expenditure, office, staffing & infrastructure expenses.
We would require about 3 rounds of funding.
1 for land advance
2 for farmland development
3 for office, staffing & infrastructure
Opportunity for the investor
The whole investment of about ₹ 50 Lacs to ₹ 1 Crore could be paid back at the 50% project sale expected to take about 9-12 months.
We would be looking for a silent investor who would want to exit the project at the earliest.
Initial investment towards farmland purchase advance could be made in the name of investor, if he is an Indian Citizen & resident.
