It's not just the metros that are hot opportunities for real estate investment. A report by FICCI and Ernst & young bets on 11 emerging cities as destinations for future property investment.
Surat tops the list among emerging markets for real-estate investment. It is mainly because of increased residential activity in localities of Vesu and Damas. The Gujarat government recently signed MOUs worth Rs 1,418 crore with developers to build integrated townships in Surat and land prices have risen by 30 to 50% over the past year.
But even though Chandigarh land prices have recently fallen, the study is upbeat about it and the peripheral areas of Mohali and Panchkula. With infrastructure investment of Rs 4,332 crore planned, real-estate activity will take off in Chandigarh.
Leveraging on the upcoming Mihan project, Nagpur as another good bet for property investment. Land prices around this project have risen 250 to 300% in the past 18 to 24 months. Nagpur is a favourite among IT companies after Mumbai and Pune.
The FICCI-E&Y study also highlights Vishakhapatnam, Vadodara, Jaipur and Tiruvanthapuram as future cities for property investment, followed by Kochi, Nashik, Indore and Ludhiana.
