Current Property Rates Of Mumbai

The real estate prices as well as the increase in rental values in Mumbai can be credited to the large scale investments in the commercial sector and the residential sector. Mumbai has always been the favorite spot for the corporate sector for developing their headquarters in the city. Besides that, increasing investments by MNCs in the IT, ITES and the BPO sector have led to a growing demand for office space; which as a result have created an imbalance in demand and supply for residential property. The rental values in Mumbai are also high in comparison to that in other metros and cities.

With the coming up of the retail market, there has been an increasing demand for retail properties in the financial capital of India.
