Ghaziabad has been at the center of real estate activities in the NCR circuit owing to its strategic infrastructure and property price tag. Happykeys does a comparative analysis of top 5 residential destinations to help prospective home buyers to make an informed decision.
Here are the top most choices in terms of livability index, locality, connectivity, civic infrastructure and property prices.
Indirapuram has emerged as the most expensive residential locality of Ghaziabad as per the Price Tracker Report by Happykeys.com. Undoubtedly, this locality is planned and more organised as compared to other residential localities. This locality offers multiple choice of multi-storied apartments and posh buildings. Average property cost recorded here in the last quarter was to the tune of Rs 5,300 per sq ft. The housing demand here is driven by working professionals who prefer living here due to smooth connectivity with Noida and Delhi. Presently, metro connectivity is up to its neighboring Vaishali but it has been stretched to Indirapuram linking the area with Greater Noida, Noida city centre and Rajiv Chowk. This is likely to be operational in 2017. The locality houses eight shopping malls.
#2. Raj Nagar Extension:
Raj Nagar Extension in Ghaziabad is fast emerging as a budget locality hub in Delhi-NCR, with thousands of families already moving in as the social infrastructure continues to improve. “In the last three years, Raj Nagar Extension has shifted its focus from being an affordable housing zone to premium lifestyle township offering everything — from residential apartments, schools, healthcare centres to shopping malls. This transformation has been noticed by investors and end users. It must be noted that the property value appreciation is comparatively highest here as compared to other regions” says Gaurav Gupta, general secretary, CREDAI Raj Nagar Extension.
#3. Crossing Republik:
Crossing Republik is situated next to Indirapuram and is considered a key micro-market of the NCR. The localities here have become well established residential hubs that have drawn the attention of buyer and investors interest. According to Bipin Chandra, a resident of Republik, “Crossing Republik is established and more developed residential area as it is one of the first planned township in Delhi NCR developed in 2006”. A two bedroom apartment in the area ranges between Rs 42 – 59 lakh. A three bedroom home will cost upwards of Rs 60 lakh.
Another expensive locality in Ghaziabad is Vaishali which commands an average property rate of Rs. 6,000 per sq ft approximately. The real estate market here has been luring new home buyers and investors with ample options promising high ROI in future. The localities lying along the metro corridor have already registered steep rise in their capital values. Property rates and rental values are increasing due to its proximity to Indirapuram, Noida and Greater Noida.
The USP of this locality is its connectivity via the Delhi metro, which extends to Ghaziabad and Anand Vihar. The two national highways – NH-24 and NH-58 pass through this locality. Kaushambi offers good mix of residential societies, malls and multiplexes promising a good life and transportation facilities. The prices of apartments are, however, comparatively affordable as 1BHK apartments cost around Rs 15 lakh, two bedroom homes come at around Rs 60-65 lakh and 3 BHKs are priced upwards of Rs 1.1 crore.
Sachin Verma from DPR infrastructure explains that localities in this area were once old developments and also considered distant from Delhi. Developed and upcoming infrastructure has clearly demarcated the old areas from new ones. In the last few years these localities have seen tremendous growth in terms of real estate. These localities are now greener, safer and more organised than other locations of NCR circuits.
“Due to its proximity to Delhi and connectivity advantages, these localities have emerged as key real estate destination in NCR,” says Mohit Srivastava, a real estate broker.
