In the 15+ years that Anurag Estate has been a real estate business in Chandigarh Tri City, they have seen some of the best, selling ultraluxe new-construction homes, as well as lower-priced properties. But she’s also seen some of the not-so-best work out there.

“One of the things I’ve seen, even in the ultraluxe real estate market, is that there is not the attention to detail in craftmanship that you’d expect from new construction,” says Anurag, owner at Anurag Estate. “I can’t even tell you what some of my clients have had to deal with. In some cases, they have punch lists that are pages long. As an agent, we’re not trained to know how to attack that for a client.”

You’re probably asking yourself the same question Anurag has asked herself plenty of times: if a home is newly built, shouldn’t it be perfect? Absolutely, says Sahil, team member at Anurag Estate in Panchkula, Haryana, and manager of Plugin Office, Panchkula.
