Take Your Pick of Luxury Residences in India’s Alternative Markets

The search for luxury homes embraces the planet. The constant upward rise of fortunes one day catapults the individual into the ranks of the nouveau riche or the high net worth individual (HNI) club. Of course we are all going places, some more so than others.


If you were in search of such a property, what facilities and lifestyle were you contemplating? What price range would you be willing to invest and in which part of the country? Some people do have favorite niches, states or languages though life and existence are idealistic in every part of the world!

Where exactly are those alternative markets that would be good enough for the HNIs? Not everyone buys a property for the sake of residence though. Many invest for the future with the hope that property values would escalate as they often do though it is a process of many years. Banks offer little by way of interest and so investment in property would be far more lucrative yet exposed to certain risks involving market forces.
