economy and fast developing satellite cities such as Gurgaon, Noida and Faridabad,
Delhi never had it so good. Unlike many other real estates in the country, the worth of

network augmented by state-of-the-art Delhi Metro, efficient road links, malls,
multiplexes and major government offices. Considering the availability of such a
massive infrastructure, the Delhi property market remains high on the investors’
agenda.
The upward trend is likely to continue with the focus now shifting to East Delhi as major
center for development of real estate market. East Delhi was, until now, considered as
a down-market in the intra-Delhi real estate sector.
But with a changing trans-Yamuna skyline, malls, multiplexes, entertainment hubs and
special features like Akshardham Temple, East Delhi is all set to challenge its more
privileged southern counterpart.
Demand for properties in Delhi has increased owing to the easy availability of home
loans in India as well as builders and constructing providing luxury flats, apartments
and homes at affordable price. Multinational companies and corporate bodies are
looking for office space and commercial establishments in Delhi and NCR. Since,
Delhi has the scope to expand its boundaries to the neighboring satellite cities, it is a
much sought after destination for foreign investors and other multi national companies.

make their dream come true.
