Better investment this year than last year
In a conversation with Dainik Bhaskar, Varish Patel of Arise Group, Ahmedabad, told about the investment in real estate that the demand for big houses has increased after the arrival of Corona. People living in 1-BHK are shifting to 2-BHK. The reason for this is that during the Corona period, only those people who had small houses had to suffer the most. Apart from this, upper middle class are shifting from flat to bungalow or farm house. Due to this change, builders are taking the risk of launching new projects. Apart from this, the demand for houses is more this year as compared to last year. This is also leading to good investment in real estate.
