Hyderabad is one of the employment hubs in India. In 2016, there were 250 listed companies across Hyderabad. Thanks to the influx of professionals, the demand for homes is forever on the rise. Housing.com data suggests that Manikonda, Kukatpally, Gachibowli, Miyapur, Bachupally, Kompally, Kondapur, Dammaiguda, Chandanagar and Nizampet are the top localities that are preferred by home buyers. Except for new and evolving localities like Dammaiguda, all other localities have registered a sizeable upward movement in prices. While prices have been climbing reasonably, it remains stable enough, to avoid disrupting one’s finances. This indicates that the real estate market in the city is healthy and there is enough momentum, to beat any capital value erosion.
Key housing demand drivers in Hyderabad
Between January and September 2020, Hyderabad emerged as the dominant city, in terms of new residential launches, as per PropTiger research. Moreover, it had the lowest inventory overhang of 25 months, among the eight prime property markets in the country.
What ensures the continued preference for these localities? One of the top reasons is that these are very close to the job markets. Mita Karunya, a 32-year-old home buyer in Nizampet says, “Proximity to my workplace was the biggest reason why I chose this locality. Hyderabad is a city of promise and after a long period of lull, I have finally chosen to invest this year. There are certain factors such as water availability that one must investigate but on the whole, the city is full of opportunities for the young.”
Commercial supply and its absorption are also significant. According to research, when compared to the top markets, Hyderabad dominated the chart in net absorption and new completions, registering a 36% and 44% market share, respectively, in the quarter ending September 2020. Bengaluru and Delhi-NCR follow Hyderabad in this regard.

Given the affordability, most real estate developers have been focussing on 2BHK and bigger units, rather than 1BHK units. As a result, there are very few 1BHK units. Among the top localities, only Kompally and Kondapur have a sizeable supply of small units. Gachibowli commands a premium, when it comes to 2BHK and 3BHK units. At Rs 1.30 crores, 3BHK units in Gachibowli are the costliest of the lot. On the other hand, Dammaiguda offers the most affordable 3BHKs, with the average price being Rs 60 lakhs. Dammaiguda is followed by Chandanagar and Bachupally.

Recent developments in Hyderabad’s top 5 localities
The Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) is looking at giving a facelift to existing roads that are running under power lines. Widening of these roads would definitely decongest traffic to a great extent. This would also positively impact property prices in the area.
Meanwhile, the construction of three major link roads in Manikonda has been stalled owing to legal hassles. Alkapur Township to Langar Houz, Lanco Hills Road No 8 to ORR and Radial Road No 5 from Shaikpet to Kokapet that were proposed in May 2020, are yet to be completed, although the road from Alkapur Township to Langar Houz is 80% complete.

Electric vehicles can now be charged at the Kukatpally metro station, free of cost. Smart parking facilities are also being planned in Kukatpally. The same was launched at Begumpet metro station recently.
The Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority (HMDA) has set a deadline of November 2020, to complete the work on the Balanagar flyover. Once completed, it will facilitate smooth flow of traffic on the Balanagar Main Road, crossing Narsapur and Fatehnagar ‘T’ junctions and also ease traffic congestion in the Kukatpally and Quthbullapur areas. This will enhance the livability in these areas.

Giving a boost to public transport, four new luxury buses have been introduced by the Telangana State Road Transport Corporation in the IT corridor, between Kukatpally and Hitec City via Gachibowli. While this provides some relief, commuters have been demanding more.
Just like Kukatpally, Miyapur is likely to have a smart parking system, which provides real-time information about parking facilities for two and four-wheelers on a mobile app. It is hoped that this will take care of civic problems, such as illegal parking in and around busy stations such as that of Manikonda.
It is estimated that 70 million sq ft of office space will be coming up in Hyderabad’s western localities, over a period of five years. Bachupally, an evolving location, will be a beneficiary in this regard and a number of residential launches have already surfaced. Now, the authorities are planning to improve social infrastructure, to take on this added population in due course of time.
