VAYA Homes – The Ulta-Pulta Startup !!

VAYA Homes, Gurgaon

For those new to India or Hindi language, “Ulta-Pulta” is a commonly used expression which literally means “upside down”. But hey !! Why is this startup being called Ulta-Pulta? We met up with the VAYA Homes Core Team and found out why the “Ulta-Pulta” status to their startup…here is what the co-founder Harpreet Singh Thukral had to say…

“Ulta-Pulta is a very interesting word in Hindi, while it literally means “Upside-Down” if translated in English. Startups globally are about disruption and change and so are we, however, we call VAYA Homes – “Ulta-Pulta” Startup for a couple of other very interesting reasons that we believe define VAYA Homes. The First one being the fact that while most startups fight on “Price” offerings, trying to bring cheaper products and services to the market, VAYA is completely Ulta-Pulta in this aspect, we believe that there is a market segment out there which is absolutely ready to pay a price for good quality, be it goods or services, so we chose to offer Good Quality Accommodation with Superior Services without compromises and charge a fee commensurate to that. The other aspect of VAYA which resonates with Ulta-Pulta is the fact that while most startups have been more focused on “market share” & “valuations” as being prime aspirations, VAYA on the other hand is more focused on Quality Delivery and Profitability, which some see as a traditional route, and look at it as “Old School Thought Process” in our approach, the thing is that if you are not profitable, there is no way that you can deliver quality and if you can’t deliver quality, you will run out of customers sooner than you think…The core team at VAYA is in sync with the thought process of remaining profitable from the day go while not compromising on the Quality being offered. The team believes “If we consistently remain focused on delivering Quality to all stakeholders, the “market share” and “valuations” will be an automated bi-product”…that’s why the Ulta-Pulta Startup !!”

We were excited to see that India is not only the land of startups, but also a land of Quality Startups in various spheres. It will be interesting to see how “VAYA Homes” changes the Quality Accommodation & Services scenario in the country. Wishing VAYA Homes success in creating the New India with Quality being paramount.

Gurgaon gets “Homes with a Soul”

Good Quality Furnished Apartments in Gurgaon

Finding a good quality furnished accommodation in Gurgaon can be somewhat a daunting task, the reason being that most of the apartments that you would find on the market would be done up by owners who probably have a job shift and are moving away from Gurgaon. There are a few though, which would be created specifically for the rental purpose, there also, the challenge is of aesthetics, functionality and the keen eye for detail. We did a research to find out what kind of Furnished Apartments are available in Gurgaon and if they really meet with the international standards of living.

This article explains the quality of furnished apartments in Gurgaon from a perspective of an expat moving to Gurgaon, the challenges faced and steps that one can take to avoid any unpleasant experiences while renting a furnished accommodation in Gurgaon. Also in this article we interviewed the founders of VAYA Homes, who say they are creating “Homes with a Soul”, we explored their homes to ratify their claim…read on to find out about our take on VAYA Homes.

Lets first take you through the various kinds of furnished apartments that are available in Gurgaon…Typically, there are three kinds of furnished accommodations that are available to rent in Gurgaon. Firstly, Homes that are being lived in by the owners, who have a job change and are moving away from the City. Secondly, homes furnished by owners, who have done it to improve their ROI on the rentals and thirdly, homes done up by Service Providers of Accommodation in Gurgaon, who are in the business of providing quality furnished accommodation with add on services in Gurgaon.

Furnished Apartments Listed by Owners

Lets discuss the First Category which are homes lived in by owners who are moving away from the city- These homes would have a lot of character of the owners, considering the fact that they have been done by the owners for themselves and not for the purpose of rentals, typically, these homes would be over crowded in most cases, considering that people tend to acquire things over a period of time and things just keep getting added on to the apartment, so they would have a deeper character, the downside would be that these are not neutral homes, they are homes with deep character, so they may or may not appeal to all and may or may not feel home to all…

Furnished Apartments Listed by Landlords

The Second Category is homes that the owner of an apartment has added furniture to increase the ROI on the property. Now, these are the ones that we found to be the worst of the lot, the reason being that they have absolutely no character, they would typically have cheap quality furniture placed in them with a sole purpose of getting increased rent. These of course had the worst feel to them when we visited them, our findings were that they were created from the brain and not from the heart space, so our research team really saw nothing nice in these, although you may get them much cheaper than the other two categories, but not sure if you would be happy living in such homes.

Furnished Apartment Service Providers Gurgaon

The Third Category of homes are homes that have been created specifically for the purpose of rentals…In Gurgaon, there are many operators of serviced/furnished apartments that work on creating homes that are specifically meant for the purpose of renting.  Most of these homes are occupied by Expats moving to Gurgaon, be it Japanese, Koreans, Europeans or Americans. This category of homes come with some distinct advantages…firstly, the fact that the organization letting them out are in the business of property management and rentals, they make sure that the apartments are tidy, neat and clean and also equipped with all the basic gadgets and amenities needed. Apart from this, the service providers are also in a position to provided add-ons like Daily/Weekly Cleaning Services, Maid Services, Deep Cleaning Services, Trouble Shooting Services etc into the package, which works out well for the Expats. Most importantly, they are able to take away the trouble of dealing with multiple resources and offer a one stop solution to the discerning tenant who is moving from another country.

Quality Furnished Accommodation in Gurgaon

On careful research of the various service providers of serviced/furnished apartments in Gurgaon, our team found some interesting facts that could potentially help expats moving to Gurgaon find better homes in Gurgaon. Our team found that not all service providers are creating homes that have a character, in fact, most of them are doing homes with very mundane quality of furnishings and not really creating homes that feel like home…another fact that our team reported is that not all service providers are trustworthy and dependable, how annoying can it get if you signed up, paid the advances etc. only to be left high and dry without support…but all was not lost…in the research our team did bump into a new startup that is trying to set a new benchmark in quality accommodation in Gurgaon. They are fast growing, new and enthusiastic about providing quality all the way, be it the furnishings, aesthetics, functionality as well as the service part. We are talking about VAYA Homes, a new entrant in the market of Furnished/Serviced Apartment providers who have completely taken the mundane and created excitement and energy in their homes.

In an interview with one of the Founders of VAYA Homes…Harpreet Singh Thukral said …”We researched the market well before launching VAYA Homes, our realization was that the city of Gurgaon had grown not only in terms of size, market or opportunity, but also on the influx of expats moving to Gurgaon, however, the sad part was the low levels of quality accommodation, commitment and service being offered to our foreign guests. We saw the opportunity and with humble beginnings, we have slowly, but surely secured a reasonable market share through consistent quality delivery of what we like to call….”Homes with a Soul”.

If you walk into any of our homes, they all have a different feel to them, they have a character to them, they have quality aesthetics as well as functionality….all blended together in a very subtle, yet powerful way that is both appealing and comfortable to call a home. It has taken us a keen eye for detail along with relentless service to keep our expat guests satisfied ….Today, we have all kinds of nationalities, starting from Japanese, Koreans, Europeans, Americans, Russians, Chinese living at VAYA Homes on long term basis and we have been fortunate to have them in our apartments living happily, the keyword being “Happily”.”

Our team also took pictures of some of the VAYA Homes

The Real Challenge that India Inc Faces in current times…

Furnished Apartments Gurgaon

One of the biggest problem that one faces in India is of “not being delivered what is being promised” in deeper cores, the issue really is of integrity more than anything else. This problem has taken up a whole new dimension with the online arena opening up, you see something online, you like it and then you order it, however, only to be thoroughly disappointed to receive a completely inferior product or service.

The issue here is that you may see a fancy image of a product or service online and get intrigued by it, you will never be sure if the product in the offering would really be the one you saw online, and chances are that you will end up feeling cheated at the end of the day for having ordered or bought and not being delivered in the same spirit.

Furnished Apartments Gurgaon
