Sunil Kotwal, President, CREDAI Nashik said, “Nashik is a city of many potentials and has great opportunities. This fact has once again been emphasised by the report on Nashik released by ANAROCK today. The present times are also very favourable to make Nashik shine and make it a city to of glory. CREDAI Nashik Metro has been consistently making efforts to make Nashik a liveable city with a vibrant economy.
Today’s programme ‘Capital Connect’ is a step in this direction and I thank ANAROCK for its report and Piramal Capital & Housing Finance Ltd for taking a keen interest in Nashik and standing strongly to support real estate finance. CREDAI Nashik Metro is committed to work for its fraternity and the city and has plans to hold such programmes through the next two years to give direction and chart the growth map of Nashik. We plan to do this by taking all the various sectors in Nashik together.”
“Nashik’s attractiveness as a residential end-user and investment destination is not hard to gauge,” said Anuj Puri, Chairman – ANAROCK Property Consultants. “In the recent Ease of Living index, the city ranked higher than many prominent tier II cities such as Nagpur, Kochi, Jaipur and even metropolitan cities such as Ahmedabad and Hyderabad. Nashik has also been one of the forerunners of RERA integration and adoption, with as many as 726 housing projects in Nashik city alone registered under MahaRERA.”
The report takes a close look at Nashik’s transformation from a pilgrimage destination to a vibrant city in the light of new infrastructure development, and confirms that the city has surpassed several others on a number of critical vectors which directly influence real estate viability:
• It has overtaken Ahmedabad, Bhubaneshwar, Coimbatore, Hyderabad, Nagpur and even Thane and Navi Mumbai in terms of mixed land-use, compactness and waste water management
• Nashik has lower pollution levels than Ahmedabad, Bhubaneshwar, Coimbatore, Greater Mumbai, Hyderabad and Navi Mumbai
• In terms of inclusive development, the city has significant access to affordable housing when compared to cities like Coimbatore, Nagpur and Kochi
• Nashik is becoming a major IT-ITeS start-up hub, with over 25+ start-ups and 6,000 angel investors sharp-focusing on the city
Overall, the residential property prices in Nashik rose by ~13% from 2016-2017, and all market indicators are towards sustained growth. With a fully-operational RERA ensuring that the city sees systematic residential development going forward, a plethora of advantages in terms of Government initiatives and infrastructure projects, and well-conceived plans to becoming an outstanding Smart City, Nashik’s real estate market is indeed poised for a quantum jump.
Apart from Piramal Capital & Housing Finance team and knowledge partners ANAROCK Property Consultants, the high-powered event saw attendance and participation by Nashik’s leading developers
