India Sotheby’s International Realty, which list high-end properties on its platform also confirmed increase in enquiries for Noida properties.
“Noida’s luxury real estate market has remained sluggish for last several years but for the last few months there has been an increase in the activity. Thanks to UP government’s proposed large scale developments along the expressway, coupled with pent up demand, low interest rates, upcoming airport and the recent announcement by Ikea to open their first India store are key factors fuelling demand for luxury real estate as well,” said Amit Goyal, CEO, India Sotheby’s International Realty.

“The upcoming Jewar international airport and the recently announced plan to build a ‘Film city’ will definitely induce positive momentum to the overall real estate markets not just in Noida but also Greater Noida and the Yamuna Expressway. One major advantage for the Noida market over Gurugram is that it has more scope for growth as property rates are relatively more affordable here,” said Santhosh Kumar, Vice Chairman – ANAROCK Property Consultants.
“The average property prices in Noida are around INR 4,795 per sq. ft. presently while in Gurugram, the average prices stand at INR 6,100 per sq. ft. That said, it will be the on-ground progress of the two projects that will determine its impact on the property market in Noida and the trends thereafter,” said Kumar.
