About a year and a half ago, recession in the city realty market had builders and buyers alike, worried. However, about a year since the first signs of recovery in June 2009, realty in Ahmedabad is back and booming. In fact, property prices in the city have inched up by nearly 35%.
The high economic growth and rate of urbanisation, along with the improvement in infrastructure in the state, have been catalysts in the growth of the real estate market. And the boom is not restricted to the western side of the city alone – properties across the city, irrespective of location, have witnessed a steep rise in prices.
However, Ahmedabad had been anything but spared by the global meltdown. The property market in the city had been considerably hit by the recent economic slowdown. But property prices started moving northwards in June 2009.
“If you compare the pre-slowdown prices with the present ones, there has been an increase of about 22-25%. However, if you consider the cumulative rise in prices since the worst phase of the downturn, the increase has been almost 35%,” said Suresh Patel, GIHED president.
He said that the property prices in the city went down by around 12-15% due to the recession, and it took around four-five months for the prices to get back to the pre-slowdown level. “After that, they have increased by around 22-25%,” said Patel.
Online real estate service provider company Makan.com’s property index shows that realty prices in Ahmedabad have grown by 36.8%, compared to the national average of around 18.6%, between June 2009 and June 2010.
Jaxay Shah, president of the Confederation of Real Estate Developers Association of India (CREDAI) – Gujarat, also acknowledged the same and said that the higher GDP rate in the state and the infrastructure available have lent a boost to the market. There still remains a lot of scope for the real estate industry in Ahmedabad, he said. Realtors believe that better living conditions could be making Ahmedabad a viable alternative to Mumbai.
