Magicbricks, India’s No.1 property site, generated sales in excess of Rs.200 crore for leading developer M3M during the first-of-its-kind online property bidding campaign ‘My Bid My Home’ on Oct 7.
Hundreds of bids were placed for properties in M3M Golf Estate (Sec 65), M3M Merlin (Sector 67) and for M3M Woodshire (Sector 107) in Gurugram. The size of apartments that were sold ranges from 1355 sq. ft. to 5486 sq. ft. The projects are outside the purview of GST as occupancy certificate has already been received and buyers would have an additional benefit of 12%. Registrations for ‘My Bid My Home’ were open from Sep 15-Oct 6.
Sudhir Pai, CEO, Magicbricks, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to be driving this defining moment in the industry.
