On the outskirts, in the suburbs, demand for real estate in Hyderabad is growing. The demand on the outskirts consists of demand for homes which are priced below 25 lakhs. While affordable housing in Hyderabad within the city is in short supply, on the outskirts and among the suburbs of the city such homes are aplenty. To cater to demand from households, builders and developers in Hyderabad are eagerly building and promoting homes in Hyderabad outskirts.
Hyderabad Is Driven by End Users
From the beginning, real estate in Hyderabad has been driven by end users. The city has a vibrant IT and ITeS sector which promotes absorption of residential real estate in Hyderabad. In the recent
past there has a been a fall in the number of new launches while the demand for residential property in Hyderabad has mushroomed. These factors have led to a fewer number of properties in Hyderabad which are ready to be occupied as in other large metros.
Immigrants vs Natives of Hyderabad
Recent reports prove that there has been an increase in demand for homes that are priced at or below twenty five lakhs in Hyderabad. At the same time that an increase in demand for such properties has been recorded, there has been a shortage of supply of such homes as well. According to sources while the demand for mid to upper segment housing is largely driven by natives of Hyderabad, migrants to the city opt to purchase affordable housing in Hyderabad which is often the first property they buy in the city.
The largest, well known and top builders in Hyderabad have not opted to enter the market segment which caters to affordable homes in Hyderabad to migrants to the city. Such homes have with them lower margins than do larger homes which has led the top builders in Hyderabad to avoid building such properties. While the top builders have avoided this segment, other smaller yet respected builders have actively chosen to enter this market and build such homes.
Such smaller yet respected builders see the development of such homes as an opportunity. There is however a shortage of such homes in regions which are the most prominent in the city of Hyderabad while the suburbs and less well known localities such as Saket, Upparpalli, and Alkapuri Kukatpally-Miyapur regions are robust regions for such homes. The regions mentioned have gated communities where there is active demand for homes priced at or below twenty five lakhs in the primary and secondary markets. The mentioned regions of Hyderabad have all of the basic physical and social infrastructure in place such as good roads and connectivity, access for residents to hospitals and schools, access for residents to shop for the daily needs of homes, and adequate water and power supply.
A few micro markets which fall in this range are listed below and characteristics are stated which make such markets suitable regions at which to own a home.
Bundlaguda is often the preferred choice for first time homebuyers as it has no shortage of homes in the affordable segment when compared to the availability of such homes in other regions of Hyderabad. This region is also attractive as it has low levels of pollution and good connectivity to employment hubs
Ligampally is another region where affordable homes are found as it is well connected and due to lack of affordable housing in surrounding regions.
Patancheru was once an industrial town yet today is an attractive destination for homes as it is located near IT hubs and due to the presence of industry. This region of Hyderabad has its own bus depot and an unlimited supply of water for its residents.
The demand in many of the thus far neglected regions of Hyderabad is being driven by affordable properties. Apartments in Hyderabad at such regions are being built by smaller yet respected builders often for migrants to Hyderabad. Most such regions tend to lie on the outskirts of Hyderabad yet have the necessary infrastructure to make them good places to own a home. Such apartments in Hyderabad tend to be priced close to 25 lakhs.
