Hyderabad has consistently ranked among top cities in various indexes for its socio-economic development in recent years. It has now emerged as the most dynamic city in the “JLL City Momentum Index 2020” from Jones Lang LaSalle among 130 cities across the world, topping the list with its strong growth despite the economic slowdown.
Hyderabad’s real estate market has seen rapid expansion in both commercial and residential segments with land prices shooting up nearly five-fold in the last couple of years. The IT sector has been the primary driver of growth as an increased workforce pushed up demand and supply in suburban areas.
As an aspiring homeowner, the plethora of choices might be confounding. We give you a list of the top five upcoming areas in Hyderabad to help you get started with your search for a new home.
