Real Estate in Faridabad

Faridabad has emerged as the most attractive real estate investment destination, after Gurgaon, Delhi and Noida, followed by Alwar, according to a recent study on ‘Determinants of real estate: A survey of Delhi NCR’.


Social infrastructure

There are very few property markets across India, where the growth of the physical infrastructure has been in sync with the social infrastructure. Moreover, such trends have traditionally been noticed only in mature property markets, which have been through cyclic highs and lows before stabilising.

The Department of Town & Country Planning has rated Faridabad as an area with high growth potential. Consequently, there is a major thrust on infrastructure development. Added to this, the area now is moving towards holistic development. A number of malls like Crown Plaza Mall, Good Store and Lifestyle, have already come up in the area. Educational institutions, such as Apeejay School Faridabad, Echelon Institute of Technology, Modern Delhi Public School, Palm Beach School for Autism and the Institute of Aviation Management, have also come up. Healthcare facilities include Apex Diagnostics and Polyclinic, Kilkari Paediatrics Clinic, Diagno Aide Pathology Lab and Kalra Child Care Centre.
