INDIA’S REAL ESTATE SECTOR
While India continues to be one of the fastest growing economies, this pace of growth is
unlikely to sustain unless it is supported by an equally robust development of its
infrastructure. Key requirements in order to achieve a GDP growth rate exceeding 8-9%
include roads, power, ports as well as urban infrastructure. The last couple of budgets
have taken steps in the right direction for growth of the sector. An allocation of Rs. 200
billion towards infrastructure projects under the 2011 budget is an attempt to achieve the
Governments target for growth of Infrastructure under the Eleventh Plan.
India will have around 27 to 30 million shortages of housing units by 2013 and for this;
huge amount is required to carry on the development. Slowdown in the global economy
along with consistent increase in policy rates by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) finally
seems to be impacting the domestic economy with the GDP growth cooling down since
past few quarters.
The GDP growth recorded during first quarter of financial year 2012 has slowed down to
7.7percent as against 9.3 per cent during first quarter of financial year 2011.Even the
projected GDP growth for financial year 2012 has been revised downward to 7.9 per cent
from 8.2 percent by the RBI.
The real estate sector in India is being recognized as an infrastructure service that is
driving the economic growth engine of the country. In fact, Foreign Direct Investment
(FDI) in the sector is expected to increase to US$ 25 billion in the next 10 years, from
present US$ 4 billion. The country's urban population will soar to 590 million by 2030,
from 340 million in 2008.India's cities could generate 70 percent of the net new jobs
created by 2030, produce more than70 percent of the country's Gross Domestic Product
(GDP), and stimulate a near four-fold increase in per capita income. It also says that India
needs to invest US$ 1.2 trillion over next 20years to modernize urban infrastructure and
keep pace with the growing urbanization.
Non-resident Indians and foreign citizens who are Persons of Indian Origin (PIO) are
allowed to purchase immoveable property in India. Residential property prices have
stabilized now and are deemed attractive for the NRI home buyer. Industry experts feel
that with attractive pricing and innovation in construction technology and variety of
designs, NRIs are taking a fresh look at India as a unique market in which they can
Real Estate business was one of the key drivers of growth before we witnessed the
present economic slowdown. Now, with companies trying to consolidate their positions
and finding effective means of sustaining growth, the management of real estate has
emerged as one of the key challenges for the corporate sector. The largest occupier of
office space in the country has been the Information Technology/ Information
Technology enabled Services (IT/ ITeS) segment, which primarily serves the US and
European markets. The economic slowdown in these markets have resulted in increasing
pressures on the margins of companies operating out of India, which in turn has led to the
companies looking to cut costs through reducing expenditure on the real estate segment.
The real estate sector in India assumed greater prominence with the liberalization of the
economy, as the consequent increase in business opportunities and labour migration led
to rising demand for commercial and housing space. At present, the real estate and
construction sectors are playing a crucial role in the overall development of India‟s core
infrastructure. The real estate industry‟s growth is linked to developments in the retail,
hospitality and entertainment (hotels, resorts, cinema theatres) industries, economic
services (hospitals, schools) and information technology (IT)-enabled services (like call
centers) etc and vice versa.
The Indian real estate sector has traditionally been dominated by a number of small
regional players with relatively low levels of expertise and/or financial resources.
Historically, the sector has not benefited from institutional capital; instead, it has
traditionally tapped high net-worth individuals and other informal sources of financing,
which has led to low levels of transparency.
This scenario underwent a change with in line with the sector‟s growth, and as of today,
the real estate industry‟s dynamics reflect consumers‟ expectations of higher quality with
India‟s increasing integration with the global economy.
Present Scenario of Real Estate
Currently, about 5 per cent of India‟s GDP is contributed by the housing sector. The GDP
share of the real estate sector (including ownership of dwellings) along with business
services was 10.6per cent in 2010-11. After growing at 10.4 per cent in 2008-09, the rate
of growth of this sector has decelerated to 7.8 per cent in 2009-10 and further to 6.9 per
cent in 2010-11. Estimates show that for every rupee that is invested in housing and
construction, 0.78 paisa gets added to GDP.
Housing ranks fourth in terms of the multiplier effect on the economy and third amongst
14 major industries in terms of total linkage effect according to Economic Survey 2011-
12.Demand for real estate is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR)
of 19percent between 2010 and 2014 Tier 1 metropolitan cities are projected to account
for about 40percent of this. Growing requirements of space from sectors such as
education, healthcare and tourism provide opportunities in the real estate sector. With
institutional credit for housing investment growing at a CAGR of about 18 to 20 per cent
per annum in the next three-five years, the housing sector‟s contribution to GDP is likely
to increase to 6 per cent. While India is among the top countries in terms of housing and
work space needs, it ranks 181st in construction permission processes according to the
World Bank‟s Doing Business 2012 report.
REAL ESTATE MARKET
Real Estate Market Size
Activities in the real estate sector may broadly be classiﬁed into residential, commercial
and the retail segment and hotels. The size in terms of total economic value of real estate
development activity of the Indian real estate market is currently US$40-45bn (5-6% of
GDP) of which residential forms the major chunk with 90-95% of the market,
commercial segment is distant second with 4-5% of the market and organized retail with
1% of the market. Over next 5 years, Indian real estate market is expected to grow at a
CAGR of 20%, driven by 18-19% growth in residential real estate, 55-60% in retail real
estate, and 20-22% in commercial real estate.
In recent years, the Industry has evolved from a highly fragmented and unorganized
Market into a Semi-organized Market. The sector can be divided into residential,
commercial, retail and hospitality asset classes.
1. Commercial Sector
The commercial office space in India has evolved significantly in the past 10 years due to
change in business environment. The growth of commercial real estate has been driven
largely by service sectors, especially IT-ITeS. However, with the emergence of IT-ITeS,
which had huge office space requirement, commercial development started moving
towards city suburbs. It resulted in multifold development of city outskirts and suburbs
like Gurgaon near New Delhi, Bandra and Malad in Mumbai, and the Electronic city in
Bangaluru. In addition, over the last 10years, locations such as Bengaluru, Gurgaon,
Hyderabad, Chennai, Kolkata and Pune have established themselves as emerging
destinations for commercial development, which are competing with traditional business
destinations such as Mumbai and Delhi. Tax sops on the profits of IT-ITeS companies
also led to stupendous development of IT Parks and SEZs.
However, the demand for office space is directly linked to addition in number of
employees, which in turn is dependent on economic growth. When economy slows down,
companies hold their expansion plans leading to lower demand for office space.
Downturn in the commercial real estate market in India, which had commenced during
the second half of 2008, continued during the second half of 2009. The sustained decline
was largely the result of postponement of expansion plans by corporate, which adversely
impacted demand for office space. IT/ITeS, which had been a major demand driver for
the sector in the last 2 years, increased utilization rates of existing commercial space by
increasing the number of shifts.
2. Residential Sector in Real Estate
Residential demand is the mainstay of the Indian real estate sector. The major demand
drivers for the residential market include increasing disposable income levels, increase in
the number of nuclear families / households, tax savings on home mortgage products as
well as real estate being considered a “necessary” investment. Demand for houses
increased considerably whilst supply of houses could not keep pace with demand thereby
leading to a steep rise in residential capital values especially in urban areas. Broadly,
residential real estate industry can be divided into four growth phases:-
Phase I (2001-2005) was an initial growth phase with stabilizing residential real estate
prices following the global recovery post the “dot com” bust and 9/11 terrorist attacks in
New York. At the same time, there was steady growth in Indian economic activity,
noteworthy recovery in IT/ITES industry, growing urbanization and a rising trend
towards nuclear families.
Phase II (2006-2008) was a high growth phase where high demand for residential real
estate led to doubling of housing prices. Demand rapidly increased due to India‟s
growing population, accentuated urbanization, rising disposable incomes, rapidly
growing middle class and youth population, low interest rates, fiscal incentives on
interest and principal payment for housing loans and heightened customer expectations.
Phase III (2009-2010) witnessed substantial slowdown and part recovery in demand
because of the global economic downturn, which led to a decline in affordability and
tight liquidity. The retreat of various real estate investors, accompanied by slowdown in
the capital markets, has resulted in over supply and falling prices.
Phase IV (2011-2014) is expected to remain a consolidation phase after slowdown.
Demand is expected to remain strong with capital values witnessing modest rise. This
period is expected to witness substantial supply of housing especially in urban areas. In
spite of the stupendous growth witnessed in the past 10 years, substantial housing
shortage is still prevalent in India. The housing shortage in India is estimated at
78.7million units at the end of Phase II. The overall housing shortage in India is likely to
decline to 75.5 million units by the end of Phase IV.
However, housing shortage in urban areas will continue to rise owing to migration
towards urban areas and increasing trend of nuclear families. Housing shortage in urban
areas is estimated at 19.3 million units at the end of 2008, up from 15.1 million units at
the start of 2005. Housing shortage in urban areas is likely to touch a walloping 21.7
million units by the end of 2014.
Rural areas, on the other hand, will witness a reduction in housing shortage due to
migration and conversion of kutcha houses into pucca houses. The government‟s
continuous focus on improving the housing situation, especially for population below
poverty line, under schemes like Indira AwaasYojna, Rajeev Gandhi Aawaas Yojna, Two
Million Housing Programmers, is expected to reduce housing shortage in rural areas.
Rural housing shortage is expected to decline to 53.8 million units by 2013-14 from 59.4
million units at the end of 2008.
3. Retail Real Estate
In 2010, India witnessed the addition of more than 5 million sq.ft. of organized retail mall
space across various primary and secondary locations. This was concentrated largely in
NCR, Mumbai, Bangalore and Chennai and was a consequence of the positive sentiments
amongst retailers on spatial expansion and enhancing their footprints across the country.
The growth of malls in India has increased to about 59 which comprises of the retail
stock. The retail stock share will increase to 36 per cent in the coming years. Results
found out through a survey state that the retail market is expected to grow in the coming
years. There is an increased development of retail malls which are primarily dominated
by the local developers. All the 59malls in the southern & Northern states are either in the
stages of construction or are already established. Few of the active project developers in
the Southern & Northern region are the Mantri Developers, The Prestige Group, DLF,
RMZ Corp and so on. Indian retailers are seeking to implement their expansion plans in
the prime cities as well as select Tier II and Tier III cities. FDI in multi brand real estate,
when finally permitted, is expected to catalyze a lot of demand from international
retailers. That said, international luxury brands will restrict their growth plans to
Mumbai, Delhi and Bangalore.
4. Hospitality Real Estate
India‟s hospitality industry has enjoyed robust growth over the past few years buoyed by
a benign economic and political environment. Increase in domestic, business and leisure
travel has benefited hotels in India. Rising incomes, higher weekend trips and increased
access to travel-related information over the Internet have propelled growth in hospitality.
Premium segment hotels are more prominent in major business destinations in India and
are dominant in popular tourist destinations like Goa, which attracts a lot of foreign
clientele. In 2010, the industry saw only five private equity deals with a cumulative value
of $ 1 56 million. By 2011, the amount grew to $299 million and during the first five
months of 2012, hospitality industry has raised $121 million from private equity. A few
years back the industry was polarized between large five star hotels and small lodges.
Now, both domestic hotel chains and international brands are queuing up with several
categories of hotels to cater to different travelers in the value chain and that is why the
demand for real estate properties in India are increasing. Private equity players are also
keen on budget, mid-sized hotels that work on an asset light model than the asset heavy
models that take longer time to become profitable. The entry of several global brands to
fill the demand-supply gap has triggered private equity interest in the industry.
5. Special Economic Zone (SEZ)
The Government of India introduced the SEZ Act, 2005, to generate additional economic
activity, promote exports and create employment opportunities in the country.
Developing an SEZ is approximately 15 to 20percent cheaper than developing non-SEZ
commercial space; given the various fiscal benefits available to SEZ developers several
real estate developers have been attracted to these projects. Under the new SEZ Policy,
formal approvals have been granted to 574 SEZ proposals as of March, 2010.As of
March 2010, there were 350 notified SEZs and 146 have received in-principle approval.
The SEZ Policy allows usage of as high as 50 percent of the SEZ area as non-processing
zone, offering significant potential for residential and support infrastructure.
The Government has proposed one per cent TDS (tax deduction at source) on transfer of
immovable property if the sale value exceeds Rs 50 lakh in urban centers and Rs 20 lakh
in other areas in the Union Budget 2012-13.
The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has granted permission to foreign citizens of Indian
origin to purchase property in India for residential or commercial purposes. The purchase
consideration should be met either out of inward remittances in foreign exchange through
normal banking channels or out of funds from NRE/FCNR accounts maintained with a
bank in India. According to the latest reforms, FDI up to 100 per cent under the automatic
route in townships, housing, built-up infrastructure and construction-development
projects (which would include, but not be restricted to, housing, commercial premises,
hotels, resorts, hospitals, educational institutions, recreational facilities, city and regional
level infrastructure) is allowed subject to the following guidelines (also for investment by
NRIs)The project shall conform to the norms and standards, including land use
requirements and provision of community amenities and common facilities, as laid down

The investor/ investee company shall be responsible for obtaining all necessary

Real estate emerged as the popular sector for private equity (PE) funds, which witnessed
investments worth US$ 1,700 million in the sector during 2011. PE in real estate projects
will fetch considerable returns by next year-end or early 2013. Limited partners (who
write cheque for funds) expect 15-25% returns from real estate deals. Foreign investors
are optimistic about India. All they want is prompt action and friendly policies.

Why Organizations Focus on Customer Satisfaction
Businesses monitor customer satisfaction in order to determine how to increase their
customer base, customer loyalty, revenue, profits, market share and survival. Although
greater profit is the primary driver, exemplary businesses focus on the customer and
his/her experience with the organization. They work to make their customers happy and
see customer satisfaction as the key to survival and profit. Customer satisfaction in turn
hinges on the quality and effects of their experiences and the goods or services they
A company should always try to keep every customer happy. It is not enough getting the
offered product right, there is so much more to customer satisfaction than the actual core
product. Loyal customers that keep coming back bring a lot of revenue to a company with
their repeat business. Even if you market your company in a way that a lot of new people
come to check the business out and spend some money, a lot of work still needs to be put
down on the customer service etc to make the customers keep coming back.
A satisfied customer is either a customer that gets what he expected or that gets his
expectations exceeded. The more customers a company can send away positively
amazed the better. Customers that get their expectations exceeded are usually happy
spreading the word about what great service they have received.
This also works the other way around, if a customer leaves unhappy, he will not hesitate
to voice his negative opinion and this might scare off possible future customers.
Sometimes however it can be enough to keep customers within the zone of tolerance.
The zone of tolerance means that the customer gets good enough service to be fairly
satisfied. The zone of tolerance lies between what kind of service the customer actually
wants and what he is willing to accept. When a customer is within the zone of tolerance
he rarely goes out deliberately searching for a new service provider. However, if a
customer like this stumbles upon a better offer, he might not be so faithful.
Measuring customer satisfaction
A company should always try to keep up with what is going on with their customers and
in order to do that, research must be done every now and then. It is easy for a company to
assume they know what their customers want, but what the customer wants and what the
company thinks that the customers want can be very different at times. Measuring
customer satisfaction can help make great improvements in the company. It is good to try
to find out both current needs and future needs as these always keep changing.
A company should always remember not to make too big promises. It is always better to
under market a bit in order not to fail the customer and to have a great chance to create an
actual wow-experience for the customer, instead of making empty promises.
Different methods of doing a customer satisfaction research
There are many ways to measure customer satisfaction. You can study customer
satisfaction by gathering either secondary or primary data. Secondary data is information
that you can get from e.g. libraries or the government. A company can also have
secondary data themselves if they have kept some information about their customers or
they have made some previous studies. Primary data is a lot more time-consuming as it
is done by collecting new information about a certain field through e.g. conducting
interviews, making people fill out questionnaires or through making observations. To
best measure customer satisfaction it is good to have both secondary and primary data.
When collecting primary data there are two different techniques that can be used.
Primary data can be collected by either doing qualitative or quantitative research.
When doing qualitative research you do not study a large number of customers, instead
you concentrate on getting as much information as possible from a smaller 16number of
customers. In-depth interviews face to face or by telephone can be used for qualitative
research. It is good to have some kind of a structure of what to ask the customer, but here
you also have the chance to react to the answers and ask the customer to elaborate on his
comments, leading into more insight.
When quantitative research is being carried out it is good to follow at least 50people in
order to get a reliable and realistic result. This kind of research is usually done with the
help of a questionnaire that can be left to fill out at a restaurant for example, it can be
mailed or e-mailed to customers, you can phone customers and interview them or you can
walk up to people asking them the questions and ticking their answers.
Designing a questionnaire
When designing a questionnaire there are many things to keep in mind. If a questionnaire
is too long, too complicated or too boring, the customer might just fill it out without even
thinking to get it over and done with. If a question is too long and complicated it might be
misunderstood and therefore answered incorrectly. The questions should be easy to
follow and in a logical order. A questionnaire should always start with the simplest
questions for an easy start.
Some questions might also be a bit sensitive for some people and extra-attention should
be paid to the forming of these questions so that the respondent does not feel the need to
lie just to avoid feeling embarrassed. A poorly done questionnaire can end up just giving
wrong information instead of helping the company.
A questionnaire should not be too long, but sometimes asking two or three questions
instead of one is better. This is in the case of a complicated or ambiguous question.
Confusing the respondents should be avoided as much as possible. A questionnaire
should also be done in a way that it does not lead the respondents to give a certain
answer. Routing, meaning that depending on an answer you move on to another segment,
should be used carefully in 17questionnaires as they can easily be confusing.
Questions can either be open or closed and both types can be used in the same
questionnaire. An open question gives the respondent the chance to answer in his own
words and a questionnaire like this reminds a bit of a conversation. This method can
bring more details, but open questions require more effort from the respondent and can
risk being poorly answered or end up simply not answered at all. Open questions should
preferably be placed at the end of the questionnaire if there is a use of both open and
closed questions. This helps the customer to first warm-up a bit to the subject before
moving on to trickier questions.
Questions that can only be answered “yes”, “no‟ or “I don‟t know‟ are closed
questions. Closed questions are also the kind that has ready-made suggestions and where
you simply tick the right answer. Usually you can only tick one answer, but there are also
questions where you can choose several options. This has to be clearly indicated in the
questionnaire. These are the kind of questions that could not start a real conversation.
Closed questions have the advantage of being fairly easy to analyze. (Brace, 2008, 40)
Paper-questionnaires can sometimes have an advantage because of the lack of
interviewer. It is easier to be honest with sensitive questions when there is not a person in
front of you and the questionnaire is anonymous. A written questionnaire also gives the
respondent the chance to take his time thinking about the answers and filling out open-
ended questions. There is also the possibility to add pictures if this suit the questionnaire.
Disadvantages of a paper-questionnaire might in some cases be that the respondent can
read through it before responding and that the respondent has too much time to think
about the answers if the questionnaire is actually looking for attitudes and first thoughts.
Whether to include an “I don‟t know” option or not in closed questions should be
carefully considered. It makes the option an acceptable alternative and many people
might end up ticking this alternative as it is the easiest. However, it might be needed at
least in some questions, because the respondent might not actually know the 18answer or
at all be familiar with what is asked. If this option is not offered the question might be left
blank by many respondents.
The layout of a questionnaire should be neat. It should be written in a font that is easy to
read and the paper should never be too crammed as it makes the questionnaire hard to
follow. One should avoid too long questionnaires, but using more papers instead of
cramming it all onto one page usually gives a better response rate. The questionnaire
should include a presentation or a cover letter of who is doing the research and why if the
respondents are made to answer it without an interviewer. If an interviewer is present, he
should explain the aim of the research. This helps give a sense of purpose to the
respondents and can help motivate them. A questionnaire should always also include a
thank you to the respondents!
It is interesting how small details can influence the outcome of a research. If you ask a
question like “How do you feel about the food offered on our lunch menu?” and then
provide options from excellent to extremely poor or from extremely poor to excellent,
this will influence the answers. One could think that it is the same question and the same
answers, but people for some reason tend to tick some of the first alternatives, meaning
that if you start with the positive, you will get a more positive outcome and vice versa!
Once you have the results of a study they need to be analyzed carefully. A well done
questionnaire research can give a lot of insight to a company and shed light on problems
a company did not know it had. With the help of open ended questions customers can be
able to voice different needs that they have that the company was not aware of. Once the
analysis has been done the company can start to think about how to address possible
faults and how to be able to wow their customers in the future.
The usual measures of customer satisfaction involve a survey with a set of statements
using a Likert Technique or scale. The customer is asked to evaluate each statement and
in term of their perception and expectation of the performance of the organization being
It's a well known fact that no business can exist without customers. In the business of
Website design, it's important to work closely with your customers to make sure the site
or system you create for them is as close to their requirements as you can manage.
Because it's critical that you form a close working relationship with your client, customer
service is of vital importance. What follows are a selection of tips that will make your
clients feel valued, wanted and loved.
1. Encourage Face-to-Face Dealings
This is the most daunting and downright scary part of interacting with a customer.
If you're not used to this sort of thing it can be a pretty nerve-wracking experience. Rest
assured, though, it does get easier over time. It's important to meet your customers face to
face at least once or even twice during the course of a project. My experience has shown
that a client finds it easier to relate to and work with someone they've actually met in
person, rather than a voice on the phone or someone typing into an email or messenger
program. When you do meet them, be calm, confident and above all, take time to
ask them what they need. I believe that if a potential client spends over half the meeting
doing the talking, you're well on your way to a sale.
2. Respond to Messages Promptly & Keep Your Clients Informed
This goes without saying really. We all know how annoying it is to wait days for a
response to an email or phone call. It might not always be practical to deal with all
customers' queries within the space of a few hours, but at least email or call them back
and let them know you've received their message and you'll contact them about it as soon
as possible. Even if you're not able to solve a problem right away, let the customer know
you're working on it. A good example of this is my Web host. They've had some trouble
with server hardware which has caused a fair bit of downtime lately. At every step along
the way I was emailed and told exactly what was going on, why things were going
wrong, and how long it would be before they were working again. They also apologized
repeatedly, which was nice. Now if they server had just gone down with no explanation I
think I'd have been pretty annoyed and may have moved my business elsewhere. But
because they took time to keep me informed, it didn't seem so bad, and I at least knew
they were doing something about the problems. That to me is a prime example of
3. Be Friendly and Approachable
A fellow Site Pointer once told me that you can hear a smile through the phone. This is
very true. It's very important to be friendly, courteous and to make your clients feel like
you're their friend and you're there to help them out. There will be times when you want
to beat your clients over the head repeatedly with a blunt object - it happens to all of us.
It's vital that you keep a clear head, respond to your clients' wishes as best you can, and at
all times remain polite and courteous.
4. Have a Clearly-Defined Customer Service Policy
This may not be too important when you're just starting out, but a clearly defined
customer service policy is going to save you a lot of time and effort in the long run. If a
customer has a problem, should they contact different people for billing and technical
enquiries? If they're not satisfied with any aspect of your customer service, who should
they tell? There's nothing more annoying for a client than being passed from person to
person, or not knowing who to turn to. Making sure they know exactly what to do at each
stage of their enquiry should be of utmost importance. So make sure your customer
service policy is present on your site -- and anywhere else it may be useful.
5. Attention to Detail (also known as 'The Little Niceties')
Have you ever received a Happy Birthday email or card from a company you were a
client. You ever had a personalized sign-up confirmation email for a service that you
could tell was typed from scratch. These little niceties can be time consuming and aren't
always cost effective, but remember to do them. Even if it's as small as sending a Happy
Holidays email to all your customers, it's something. It shows you care; it shows there are
real people on the other end of that screen or telephone; and most importantly, it makes
the customer feel welcomed, wanted and valued.
6. Anticipate Your Client's Needs & Go Out Of Your Way to Help Them Out
Sometimes this is easier said than done! However, achieving this supreme level
of understanding with your clients will do wonders for your working relationship Take
this as an example: you're working on the front-end for your client's exciting new
ecommerce Endeavour. You have all the images, originals and files backed up on your
desktop computer and the site is going really well. During a meeting with your client
he/she happens to mention a hard-copy brochure their internal marketing people are
developing. As if by magic, a couple of weeks later a CD-ROM arrives on their doorstep
complete with high resolution versions of all the images you've used on the site. A note
accompanies it which reads:
7. Honor Your Promises
It's possible this is the most important point in this article. The simple message: when you
promise something, deliver. The most common example here is project delivery dates.
Clients don't like to be disappointed. Sometimes, something may not get done, or you
might miss a deadline through no fault of your own. Projects can be late, technology can
fail and sub-contractors don't always deliver on time. In this case a quick apology and
assurance it'll be ready ASAP wouldn't go amiss.
2013 Home Buyer/Seller Satisfaction study by J.D. Power:-
Repeat buyers and sellers expressed more satisfaction with their real estate company
compared to customers who were selling or buying a home for the first time, according to
the J.D. Power 2013 Home Buyer/Seller Satisfaction study. The 2013 Home Buyer/Seller
Study includes 4,371 evaluations from 3,930 respondents who bought or sold a home
between March 2012 and April 2013.A real estate company‟s agent remains the most
important aspect of the customer‟s experience among first-time and repeat home buyers
and sellers; however, customer loyalty is first to the company and second to the agent.
Real estate companies remain challenged in adapting their customer service approach to
best meet the needs of first-time home buyers and sellers. They need to educate these
customers by explaining the current state of the market, discuss foreclosure and short sale
transactions, and walk them through every step of the closing process.

agent/salesperson, real estate office, closing process, and variety of additional services.
