The rapid real estate growth in the city is reflected through the several residential as well as commercial properties that are mushrooming within the city. Along with excellent employment and educational opportunities, good weather and cosmopolitan population are some of the factors that have cause this phenomenal growth in the real estate sector.

Industry experts indicate that residential space of around 1.76 million square feet is needed with the real estate sector recording compound annual growth of 51 percent. Residential spaces in prime areas like Model Colony, Deccan Gymkhana, Kothrud and Koregaon Park continue to be in demand. However lack of space in these areas has prompted many property developers to shift their focus to the fringe areas of the city which include Mundhwa, wagholi, Wanowrie, Nagar Road and Hinjewadi areas. The Maharashtra government has granted approval to private property developers to establish townships in Pune as a part of the Public Private Participation model and this has resulted in development of several integrated townships.

The properties are designed to reflect the contemporary lifestyles of people with many of them having excellent modern amenities like club house, swimming pool, gym and gardens. There are a large number of projects underway in upcoming areas like Wakad, Aundh, Balewadi, Hinjewadi, Pimple Nilakh etc. The residential spaces in these projects are also quite affordable. The eastern belt of Pune has developed at a very fast pace and is much in demand because of its close proximity to the airport as well as IT parks. With the development of infrastructure particularly roads, areas like Wagholi and Kharadi have been well connected with the city and this has resulted in a great deal of demand for properties in these areas.

With the rapid infrastructural development and economic growth buying a property in Pune has become an excellent investment option. The real estate prices in Pune have consistently recorded an appreciation of around 25 to 30 percent each year. There is a greater demand for intelligent living spaces that provide upscale amenities. Over the past two years high rise towers have been permitted to be developed in some areas in Pune and many real estate developers have capitalised on this thereby transforming the Pune skyline.
