A Quick Overview of the South Chennai Property Market

The property market of south Chennai has been performing considerably well in the recent past with integrated townships and reasonable rental values striking a chord with the end users. Read the following post to know more about the realty souk of south Chennai.


The Chennai real estate market is typically end user driven. Among the three segments, the residential realty market still has the maximum number of bidders. If we invest sometime in analysing the dynamics of the real estate market of Chennai, we will find out that every corner of the city has recorded some variations in growth in the dynamics of the micro markets. 

Though compared to other cities, the rental market of Chennai has not been performing that well. However, in the short run, an upward movement within the residential realty market is expected to witness an upward movement. Over time, this is also expected to boost the demand for rental houses in Chennai, thus increasing the prices of residential property in Chennai.

South Chennai Property Market

South Chennai is one of the most posh areas of the city. The region is home to industries such as automobile, electronic manufacturing and of course the Information Technology (IT). Other industries include the south Indian film industry. These have been the key drivers of the real estate market of Chennai - whether commercial or residential. 

The residential real estate market of South Chennai has witnessed tremendous growth in the recent past with huge investments from the NRIs. This has led to the construction of new-age residential properties like duplexes and penthouses. Recently, the concepts of serviced apartments have become quite popular in the region. 

Similarly, the commercial real estate market in south Chennai has also gained importance owing to the flourishing IT/ITeS sector. Business Parks, IT Parks and plush office buildings define the landscape of the region. Major localities include Old Mahabalipuram Road, Perungudi, Thalambur, Kelambakkam and Grand Southern Trunk Road. Areas like East Coast Road, Velachery-Tambram have scored extremely well in within the residential realty segment.

Key Features of the South Chennai Property Market  

The Old Mahabalipuram Road (OMR) has stretch has witnessed a huge upsurge in the real estate market in the last twelve months. There has been multiple project launches along the 26 kilometres stretch that has recorded great absorption level at the same time. However, real estate prices relative to the location continues to remain a key determinant in the success of a product.

Neighbourhoods of Karapakkam, Perungudi and Thuraipakkam have recorded sales figures that are moderate mainly due to the existing levels of prices and a dearth of infrastructure. Ample small-scale residential realty projects have dotted this region falling within the price band of INR 5000-6000 per square feet. In the coming months, the locality is expected to observe the infusion of fresh supply.

Localities of Sholinganallur and Perumbakkam are two major micro-markets of the residential real property of south Chennai. These localities are not only expected to witness a spree of residential products that would be launched in the coming months.

Strategically located Velachery-Tambaram road has been a hub of real estate activities in the recent past. Its appropriate location, clubbed with outstanding connectivity to suburban localities, has helped in retaining the real property prices of the micro markets. The region has recorded an appreciation of at least 10% during the last 12 months.

Integrated township projects are being launched in the locality of Semmancherry that has already recorded ample advance booking. Siruseri on the other hand, houses the biggest IT Park in Asia. It is also witnessing the development of some mid-segment projects. Some new launches are expected to come up in the near future.

Small Properties in Thane, Mumbai (Guest Post - Rashmi Karan)

The Increased property rates in Mumbai have forced the buyers to move towards the suburban localities of the city, one of which include Thane East and West. Thane is among those suburban localities around Mumbai that offers good options for the buyers belonging to the middle-income group. This area serves as the perfect investment destination for the mid income buyers.

The Infrastructure

Spread over an area of 147 square kilometres and ensures excellent connectivity with Mumbai through various linking roads, which are the State Highway 42 and the Eastern & Western Expressways. Thane has very good rail connectivity through the local rail lines between Thane-Vashi and Thane-Panvel. It is also well connected to other neighbouring suburbs through the suburban rail network of Central Railway.

The Localities

Localities like Dombivali, State Highway 42, also known as Ghodbunder Road, Badlapur, and Kalyan West alone account for around 40% of the total supply of 1 BHK units in Thane. These areas have also witnessed tremendous infrastructural developments along with modernization with the construction of several shopping malls, and other commercial establishments. Such developments have greatly improved the growth prospects of the localities.

The most popular types of housing units in both Thane East and West are the 1 BHK flats. The buyers look forward to invest in the 1 BHK flats as compared to a 2 BHK or a 3 BHK flat. Undoubtedly, Mumbai is the winner when it comes to demand for small sized flats and homes. However, due to spiraling property rates in Mumbai, people have started to shift to the suburban locations to find less costly accommodation, and this has certainly given a boost to the realty segment of Thane.

The main reason why people look out for smaller flats is that they think it is better to invest in flats rather paying a hefty sum as rentals. These days, the rentals of a 1 BHK flat and the EMI on a home loan are equivalent. In fact, in certain localities, the rentals are much higher than these EMIs, suggest the market experts.

Reasons for growth of Thane as Realty Hub

Some of the remarkable reasons for the growth of Thane as real estate destination are excellent connectivity with Mumbai and other suburbs, infrastructural developments, and lesser capital values. Thane has built up its buyer’s base for small sized homes. Flats having a total built up area of 500-650 sq. ft. are available in the price range of Rs. 3,000-4,500 per sq. ft. If you wish to buy a 500 sq. ft. property in Thane West or East, you will have to pay somewhere around Rs. 15 lakh. On an average, the price range of 1 BHK flats in these localities is somewhere between Rs. 15-32 lakh, which is pretty affordable.

A number of builders who were earlier targeting Mumbai for development of new projects have now headed towards Thane and have rode the wave of success. Some of the builders and developers like Indoasian Buildcon Pvt. Ltd., Lodha Group, Siddhi Real Estate Developers, Kabra Builders, Puranik Builders, Swami Developers, Skylark Constructions Pvt. Ltd., to name a few, are offering 1 BHK flats in Thane West and East. In addition, the interested buyers can also look forward to invest in the 1 BHK flats in Dombivali East and Kalyan West also.

If the market experts are to be believed, Thane has been able to attract the buyers owing to availability of properties at affordable rates, and such growth is expected to continue in future. Those who have a detailed knowledge of the market, expect that there will certainly be a hike in the prices of properties in Thane. Some new realty developments are also planned.

Industrial Real Estate – A Treasure?

We recently came across some assignments in industrial area and that gave the way to this post. We thought of accessing this area as an option of investment and after analyzing, we came up with many interesting conclusions.

What is Industrial Real Estate?

All the land and properties located in the manufacturing zone of a city/town can be categorized under the category of Industrial Real Estate. This includes:

  • Industrial Land
  • Industrial Sheds
  • Industrial Storage Spaces
  • Industrial Laboratories
  • Industrial Offices, etc.

In simple words, each and every realty asset class, related to the production/manufacturing of goods & located in the Government-specified industrial areas comes under the periphery of Industrial Real Estate.

What if you don’t have any industry/production unit?

This is the main issue that every investor faces while investing in industrial area. Even we were facing the same issue from a long time and now we are hunting desperately for an industrial asset. Let’s see what made us change our mind.

Unprecedented Rental Returns
As has been our philosophy, we pay equal heed to rental returns as appreciation returns; we were astonished by the potential of industrial properties in this aspect.

An industrial land is capable of paying a rental return to the tune of 200% more than an equivalent investment in residential property.

Take for instance, an amount of 5 million INR invested in residential property in India will yield a rent in the range of 8K-12K INR per month; while an equivalent amount invested in industrial area will yield anywhere between 20k-25k INR per month.
Huge Asset Creation
Industrial property transactions are dealt in square meters rather than square foots or square yards. The reason being, land is relatively cheaper in industrial areas and the availability is abundant.

Hence once invested in an industrial area, you will have a huge asset created at your disposal.
Future Option
In case you or your heirs think of moving into the manufacturing sector, you won’t have to worry as you will have your own land to start the production unit on.

Of course this reason looks stupid and insane but trust us, sooner or later most of us faces this issue. We want to start our production unit, but are inhibited due to the land scarcity issues.
Steady Land Appreciation
Also for our readers who are motivated more by the value appreciation rather than rental aspects, industrial real estate provides awesome prospects.

Industrial land appreciates at a slower but steady rate and at the end of a period of 5-10 years; one can expect handsome returns on his investment.

How can I invest in this arena?

  • Look for a cheap land on a property portal on your city and grab a decent amount, in the range of 1000-5000 meter squares
  • Get 2-3 sheds constructed of about the size 300 meter squares each
  • Put up your property for rent and enjoy the spectacular returns for life!

What are the risks in this type of investment? <link> 

  • You may be unable to find a tenant for your property: No issues, you have an asset and sooner or later you will find one.
  • Too much investment upfront: Think of it this way – which other asset class promises you the same passive returns on same investment?
  • Land may get acquired by government if unused: More reasons to cheer up in this case as the new land acquisition law provides more than awesome returns upon acquisition.

Closing Thoughts

We have surveyed a lot in this arena and have come up with the above conclusions. This was the only reason that we took so much time to write this post. After our research and analysis, we feel that we made a big mistake by not investing in this sector earlier. But this is our understanding; you may definitely differ here.
