Pune has witnessed a constant real estate market within the last couple of years and is still among the prime towns for residential investment. Good customer demand, along with great economic drivers, has resulted in vigorous residential investments generating good yields. A higher migrant influx gives a robust marketplace for rental property. The primary catalyst that has changed the face of the town is the IT sector, fostering growth in the western region of the city especially; it is right now capturing the eastern area as well.

Since the central area of the town has almost stretched its development potential it is the fringes that are now viewed as the driving parts of the city. Therefore, purchasing a residential house in a strategic area with the goal of renting it out is now a great investment proposition.
