It has been observed that the long-term investment in the Indian market pays rich dividends. The NRIs are very well aware of this facet of the Indian realty market. Usually, NRIs invest in the state of their origin – Kerala, Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu and Delhi NCR. But the current trend suggests that the NRI clients are leaning towards Delhi and Mumbai market as both present huge opportunities being political and financial capital respectively. And the developers are doing the needful by offering discounts, festive offers, tax exemptions, etc. to make most of it.

Now the corrective measures have been imposed. The demand for the luxury and semi-luxury homes is on the rise. In cities like Pune the demand never really went down, and the upcoming residential projects in Pune are garnering good market. Here's a is a word of advice for the NRI who are waiting for the right time to invest – now is the best time to invest. It can't get any better.
