Major commercial hotspots like Gachibowli, Madhapur, Hi Tech City and the Financial District are seeing steady residential real estate growth in surrounding areas with several digital, IT and ITeS and e-commerce companies setting up shop in these locations.

Commercial realty investments are delivering returns anywhere between 7-8% which is attractive to investors along with 6-8% of capital appreciation over a period of 5-10 years. All of these factors augur well for the residential realty space in the country.
