Commenting on the same, Anjana Sastri, Director, Marketing, Sterling Developers, said rising homeownership among millennials, supported by higher disposable income and willingness to upgrade to larger, luxurious spaces equipped with better amenities have sparked a sharp growth in housing demand in the recent past.
"The revival in market sentiment against the backdrop of accelerating economic activities makes this festive season more attractive. However, while investing in a property, buyers should not only look at the attractive deals but also consider the reputation of the developer and other factors like location, execution capability, and amenities that the developer has to offer," Sastri said.
