AP RERA and grading of agents
The regulatory body will soon undertake a grading system for real estate agents in Andhra Pradesh. In order to narrow the trust deficit in the market and to make real estate buying and selling smooth and transparent, prospective home buyers must be informed about the importance of siding with a good agent. Rather than going with word-of-mouth recommendations alone, the AP RERA will now help buyers who are looking to verify the efficiency of the agent. Based on documents and the information submitted by the brokers during registration, the AP RERA will soon undertake grading of the agents, which will boost accountability in the real estate industry.
Ratings will be assigned after analysis, on set parameters such as previous projects for which sales have been facilitated by the agent, details of the partners, legal cases and clearances, financial stability of the broker, IT returns and balance sheet. Moreover, the agency will be under surveillance throughout his or her tenure.

Simply feed in the details about your project type, plan approval date, date of payment for registration, area, total built-up area and the fee can be easily calculated in minutes. The fee can be paid through Demand Draft or NEFT/RTGS.
Similarly, real estate agents have to pay a registration fee that is fixed by the state RERA.
