Every real estate Investor with exposure in Gurgaon is happy for the fact that Gurgaon market has outperformed all other property markets in India in last 7-10 years and is being tagged as ‘Millennium City’.
Investors big or small have multiplied their money manifolds thereby giving them confidence to pick up newer & newer projects at higher rates. But the last 6 months- 1 year has shaken some confidence of the buyers & are now asking till when would this dream run continue??
The answer to this is not a simple yes or no!! If we compare the prices in rest of Delhi especially South Delhi (which is in close proximity to Gurgaon) or other cities like Mumbai etc then we still have significant upside left. The infrastructure is getting better each passing day. Thousands of white collar jobs are being created every year and its turning out to be a self sustainable city. Over the next 5 year period Gurgaon will be a much better place to stay with all the facilities in place and majority of the working population would prefer to stay closer to their workplace. This would increase the rent ability of the apartments & would take the prices even further up from here on.
However, in the short term, say next one year or so the chances of getting returns to the tune of 10-12% are more than getting 20% odd like we have enjoyed in the past. This is for overall Gurgaon market, but surely there would be pockets (micro markets) in Gurgaon which can still fetch you those desired numbers.
The sweet spot lies in investing around 5000-6000pqft bracket on Dwarka Expressway/ New Gurgaon or 7500-8500/-psqft on golf Course Extension Road for a period of next 3 years for superior returns.
In the end I would like to re-iterate that making money is all about setting your expectations right (Real Estate Investment: Expectation Vs Reality?)
