Properties for Sale in India

By: George Gonigal

A fundamental real estate investment mantra in India is that emerging localities are preferable to established and often saturated ones. Expressing their views on real estate markets in the year ahead, property consultants say that established areas eventually reach a peak in terms of appreciation potential, after which the growth rate either slows down or stagnates, moreover, there is little scope for new market drivers such as malls to find a place in saturated localities-where, property prices remain high.

According to property consultants Jones Lang LaSalle, this is not the best of scenarios from an investment point of view, since optimal investment requires low entry levels and appreciable growth within a realistic time-frame. Therefore, as one or the other destination reaches its peak potential on all these counts, new ones come into the limelight. Here is an overview on some emerging for sale in India:
