Mumbai Real Estate - Presenting New Opportunities

By: George Gonigal

Mumbai is the most desired city for buying, selling or renting a property in India. A teeming metropolis, it has witnessed a burgeoning demand and supply of properties over the last couple of years. It is widely recognized across the world as an IT and ITES hub. This has resulted in high property prices in Mumbai which are now comparable to prices in cities like London, New York and Tokyo.

Locations in Mumbai like Worli, Bandra-Kurla Complex (BKC) and Lower Parel have seen rising demand in Grade-A office buildings. Andheri East and Nariman Point have also witnessed the high number of occupancy over the past few months about 90-95 per cent. There has been an increase of about 15-35 per cent in values for commercial properties and about 40 per cent in Mumbai residential properties.



Malabar Hill, Breach Candy and Altamount Road continue to be Mumbai's golden triangle. Residential properties in these areas sell in the range of Rs 30,000 to 50,000 a sq ft. With Mumbai real estate developers promoting sprawling townships, malls, software parks and office complexes across the city, places like Dharavi has seen a sharp rise in its property prices.

Surprisingly, a 225 sq ft house, in the area would come at a high price of Rs 9 lakh. The biggest beneficiary of infrastructural developments have been the eastern suburbs of Navi Mumbai including areas like Kharghar, Airoli, CBD Belapur, and Sanpada which remain viable investment areas. Rates in Navi Mumbai range between Rs.3000 to Rs.5000 per sq ft.
