Even though the real estate market is seeing a sluggish growth since a couple of years, Pune’s real estate market is stable and acting in contrast with its neighbouring city Mumbai.
The accommodation request in the town is expanding from IT experts. Likewise, professionals migrating from other cities are also making Pune a brilliant urban community. Combining other factors, Pune’s picture has picked up a positive effect on the realty market in both private and business areas.
Let’s read further to know about the factors contributing to making Pune city - a hotspot for real estate investors and home buyers.
1. RoI (Return on Investment)
As real estate is not a very liquid asset, it is not easy to convert it into cash quickly. Pune is an established market with many participants to sell & buy off the asset without a massive impact on the price.
Pune’s reasonably priced housing segment (1,1.5 and 2 BHKs) - units priced below Rs 40 lakh - constituted 44% of the overall new supply in the third quarter of 2017-18. “Due to the restricted supply of high-end properties and good demand for affordable housing, the first three quarters of 2017 witnessed higher absorption, and Pune’s unsold inventory fell 5% in the third quarter of 2017,” says Prashant Thakur, Head, Research, Anarock Property Consultants.
Hinjawadi and Hadapsar are two such areas which have seen lots of project launch in the past few years on the hopes of infra and IT development on the Rajiv Gandhi InfoTech Park and Kharadi–Magarpatta belt.
Nearby locations such as Pimpri, Bavdhan, Baner, Wakad, Kalyani Nagar, Balewadi and Aundh have also seen the tremendous price rise in properties. Ranging from Rs 4000 per sq ft in Sus to Rs 6,617 per Sq-ft in Bavdhan (source: magicbricks), price rises have given astonishing returns to investors.
2. Cash flow from rentals
Cash flows from real estate properties are steady and far more predictable than that of most other investments. Since Pune has grown as a tech and automobile hub, more and more professionals are coming here in search of job opportunities.
This directly makes sense to the point that if you invest in Pune, you are bound to earn rental income since the demand from migrant populations is high.
Most of the places are easily accessible, and transportation is not a problem in Pune. You can reach one corner of the city from another in just 1 – 1.5 hr, which is not possible in other cities. This allows easy commute for working professionals no matter where they buy their home.
Also with the new Metro project getting built, overall connectivity by road and metro is going to enhance the city’s quality even more!
4. Clean and Green
The lush green trees by roadside beautify the whole look and feel of the city. Small mountains and amazing weather only add to this beauty. So, those who are looking for homes with greenery around will be glad to live in this city.
Pune is one of the most liveable in India: according to Mercer’s 21st annual Quality of Living Rankings. This is just the place where you can get a glimpse of new India, where the tradition blends with modernity almost seamlessly. Pune is also the city in close proximity to other upcoming major cities like Kolhapur, Solapur, Nashik, etc,. This makes up for an interesting roster of features.
It may be hard to predict real estate trends but, prices are sooner or later going to rebound and head to arise!
Also, with the new Modi 2.0 government, businessmen and investor community is confident about a good financial growth going into the next 5 years and real estate has always been a major driving force in the growth! So, get it and invest in Pune. You won’t regret it!
