If you ask anyone a question about what they would like to do in order to bring more peace in their lives, chances are they would probably say a serene home, a comfortable lifestyle and happiness and health for the family. Surely, each of us attempts to bring in more elements of tranquillity and serenity in this already hectic world.

This is why a home is considered a personal sanctuary, an abode where the pace and peace, both are within your control and your control alone. Homes at Sembakkam have become much sought after due to this very reason, there is perfect harmony of peace and an equal measure of pace here. Sembakkam is a quiet, consecrated municipal suburb in Kancheepuram district, located within the south side of the ever so bustling city of Chennai. It has of late been in the public eye because of the rapid real estate developments taking place.

Place of Peace

Sembakkam has many temples such as the Chandra Mouleeswarar temple, the Jambulingeswarar temple- a temple of lord shiva and Akilandeswari amman. The exquisite Skandasharamam temple has been built recently with lord murugan, pancha muga Vinayagar, Shiva lingam and Goddess Mahalakshmi.Besides these there are many other temples in and around the area. The Guruswamy Nagar temple is believed to be one of the more pristine and well-maintained must-visit temples here.

The area has become hugely popular among home buyers because of the multitude of temples and the many options for recreation. The Sembakkam park amenities such as a library, water fountain, orchids, lawn, shuttle ground, walking path are very well maintained and it is highly frequented by families.

Place of Pace

The Velachery-Tambaram main road has assumed great significance and there are many large corporations and shopping centres around this road. There has a massive spurt in real estate development in surrounding areas because of the rapid urban  station in this stretch. Sembakkam is located a stone’s throw away from the bustling Velachery-Tambaram main road. By virtue of being located in close proximity to Velachery, Sembakkam has become a much sought after location.

About Velachery

Today, Velachery is transformed from the sleepy farm land it once was. The widening of the Bypass Road in 2005 to a six-lane road gave a big push to this locality and the areas surrounding it. There are many supermarkets, parks such as Rajakilpakkam Park, international fast food joints and schools such as the Christ King Girls high school along the Velachery-Tambaram main road. Velachery is surrounded by IIT Madras in the north-east, Taramani in the east, Adambakkam in the northwest and Pallikaranai Marshland in the south.

Our customers are a bunch of happy people, here’s what they have to say about us


I am quite happy on buying a property from Asvini Foundations. 2 Years before when I was looking for a 3BHK flat with a limited budget but a number of specifications in mind, I could find all my requirements satisfied only at Asvini.
It’s not just the quality of the product; people at Asvini foundations have always treated us in an excellent manner. I never felt that my concerns are not getting heard or there is a delay in responding to the queries. Their commitment to treat customer right is praiseworthy. Overall, I am very happy that I bought my first property from Asvini Foundations. Thank you.

We appreciate the team at ASVINI FOUNDATION, CHENNAI for construction of my villa in Coimbatore and my flat in Chennai. Being an NRI we never felt the necessity to be present in India during the construction either to follow up or inspect the quality of works. This is due to your ownership commitment to your customers. We convey our heartfelt thanks to the commitment and services provided by one and all in your organization and wish you all the best in all your future projects.

Asvini Foundations is 15 years old today and I hold the pride of being the First Customer of Asvini Foundations. No matter how many year passes by, this pride of mine cannot be grabbed by anyone. I own it and will continue to cherish it.
A small establishment started 15 years ago has come a long way. It has grown today, far and wide, in the service of providing, not just shelter, but a shelter with such a standard, which can outlive generations and suit the needs and taste of the generations to come. I am happy to be associated with Asvini and that’s the reason why I bought a flat again from Asvini. I am sure I will be blessed by the almighty with enough resources to keep buying more and MORE, and Asvini will be my first choice always.

5 Points to consider before investing in Chennai apartments

5 Points to consider before investing in Chennai  apartments

5 Points to consider before investing in Chennai apartments

Making the decision to buy a house is as crucial as choosing your life partner or perhaps your profession. Once you’ve made a good decision, you’ll rest in peace forever. If you’re thinking of purchasing your first home, refer to this as a not-to-be-missed checklist. In the event that you’re buying a second home or are looking at investing in real estate, use the points mentioned herein as a guide that will serve to check crucial things and mitigate possible risks.

1. Investigate the builder thoroughly

There are reputed builders and then there are the fly-by-night operators. It is your duty as a buyer to enquire and make a thorough check about the builder. Buyers should verify the builders repute and his history in delivery of previous projects. Do ensure you have a copy of the blueprint or the project drawings which have been duly attested by the municipal authorities. However, bear in mind that there may be some corrections in the original plan made by the developer.

2. Project Connectivity and neighbourhood conveniences

The location of the project is a very important factor while deciding on any project. The location can be a make or break deal for your property, whether you’re planning to sell or rent it out. Close proximity to hospitals, bus stops, schools, banks, parks and entertainment zones are ideal and will attract the best rentals and resale value.It is understandable that as a buyer there will be considerable importance to price and layout, but it is prudent that you must also consider the other factors mentioned above,additionally keep a steady tab on the rental and resale rates in the area you have zeroed on.

3. Don’t expect to get rich quick

There are many instances where developers advertise huge returns on investment in a few years and many unwitting customers fall prey to such tactics. Remember, there is no such thing; real estate is just like any other investment—it takes time to appreciate. Do consider that real estate prices have already been amplified to a high level in most cities, especially metros. Consider a realistic investment horizon of five – six years or more, and don’t expect to gain sky high profits whilst selling the property.The current market scenario suggests that there is a slow down in the real estate market as sales have lessened and there is a plethora of new projects being launched day by day; thereby creating a huge inventory with developers. Factor in all these points before expecting any huge windfall in real estate.

4. Resource planning

Individuals must exercise extreme discipline while planning their outgoings, more so when you decide to purchase a house. You will need to understand how much money you’ll have each month to manage borrowing costs along with other fixed expenses.Once you are certain about your resources and have determined the amount you can allocate towards the home loan, make a detailed study of the current interest rates offered by institutions besides keeping a constant eye on the projects that will fit your budget. It is your duty as a buyer to ensure that your home will suit your family’s needs and be within your budget.Conduct due diligence while enquiring about tax benefits on the home loan.Usually individuals/ married couples claim benefits on the principal and interest components of the loan.

5. Stamp Duty, Registration Fee and Additional Costs

Ensure you have the expense break-up of the house you wish to buy. Aside from the per square foot rates, the builder will give the rates of applicable taxes,maintenance charges and amenity costs. The taxes are important considerations that will be duly collected by the Government.Ideally one must research the stamp duty amount (levied as per the market value) aside from the city-wise rates and charges and then plan the budget accordingly. This ends up saving valuable time and effort. Don’t be hesitant in getting help from a team of professionals or legal consultants. Will there be power cuts during summer? Does the area get regular water supply? Are the sewage systems in place? What are the car parking charges?Who is responsible for managing the property after possession? Make sure you are absolutely certain about these things before you step into your new home.
