Hyderabad's real estate market

Hyderabad’s property market has seen a notable boom in recent years on the back of strong fundamentals such as infrastructural advancements, a burgeoning IT industry, seamless connectivity and an overall thriving business ecosystem.

According to data cited in an Anarock report released on June 11, average property values in the bustling capital city saw a 45% jump between 2021 and the first quarter of 2024. Interestingly, West Hyderabad, which harbors the highest concentration of office spaces, saw real estate prices soar by a whopping 52% during the same period.

“Currently, the average price per square feet stands at 7,200,” said Prashant Thakur, who is a regional director and heads research at the consultancy. Land prices, which have appreciated by over 30% in the last three years, have contributed significantly to the price hikes, he added.
