There is a growing trend amongst people to shift to smaller places away from congested cities, yet close to them. With hardly any space left for expansion, homebuyers in Pune are now looking for homes in Pune suburbs, Kamshet being a popular choice.

But what has been driving this shift of homebuying preference from a city to areas away from the city? Let us dig deeper.

Living in quiet areas away from a city- Rising Trend

Exorbitant property rates in Pune City

Living in Pune is expensive. Pune property rates are hitting the roof. This is largely due to the immense employment opportunities the city offers. There is a large migrant population in Pune who are residing here for work or study. More jobs mean a greater requirement for living spaces. Since most people prefer staying close to their workplaces, housing Pune is expensive.

There is a steep difference in property rates in Pune city and Pune suburbs. The developing suburbs offer attractive property prices and these are great options for homebuyers and investors alike. This has led to a shift in interest in buying properties in Pune that are slightly away from the city. Kamshet remains a popular choice.

Traffic issues, city-chaos

Pune is a crowded city, there are regular traffic issues. Although the municipal corporation is taking all possible measures to fix that things will get in place slowly.

Changing Office Setup/ Work from Anywhere

The prevalence of remote working (work from anywhere) has led people to shift to smaller towns that are more affordable.

Suburbs offer more open spaces

The central locations in the city are congested, and offer limited land to developers. They don’t allow for large open spaces in a project or accommodate large projects. There are limited homes with basic amenities and even those are steeply priced.

Pune suburbs enjoy huge land parcels as they lie on the outskirts of the city. That allows for residential projects with huge open areas for residents. There is more space to accommodate better sports amenities, parks, etc.
