Smart ways to invest and attain early financial freedom

Among the old well known business families in Bangalore is the Sipani’s. Back in the 80’s, they were known for the car they manufactured called Dolphin - it was a Fibre glass body  car (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sipani).  Dolphin did not do well and was eclipsed by Maruti 800 as it came around the same time. Over the years, the Sipani brand has been in a few B2B businesses. Today most youngsters would not know the Sipani brand.
I had recommended a property investment in my last blog and quite a few people had reached out to me and few did go ahead with the investment. Many did not as they could not fathom the calculations on how the ROI is calculated. So I have created an excel sheet that is formula driven –you can download it from drop box url here. http
One of the feedback that I received after the last two posts is that – it is good to know what happened – but tell me where I can invest now and make similar returns. So I am sharing one good property idea where you can make returns similar to the one I shared recently. Prestige Shantiniketan is a well know property in Bangalore. This is the property where my friend made 65 lacs out of an investment of 35 lacs over 7 years (please see my blog dated Sept 21st 2013).
In Q4 2010, I came across a project called SNN Raj Serenity that caught my attention (http://www.snnbuilders.com/raj_serenity.html).  SNN Builders is not a well known builder  – but Sanjay, one of the owners of the company was living in my flat complex and he was a decent person. The project by itself was in a good upcoming location (behind IIM Bangalore) and the club house and overall design looked good.  Further, the property was priced well and there were many investors who booked flats early. Seeing all this, I had recommended this to friends of mine.
You need to read this note till the end to get to the investment opportunity. Unlike stocks, identifying land to invest is comparatively easy in India. Due to urbanisation, most urban lands would appreciate in value by at least 15% per annum as long as the titles are clear. Here is how one of my friends managed to make a great ROI.
