Impact of Pune airport on Real Estate Market
There will be a two-fold impact of the new Pune international airport on real estate:
- At first, it will increase the viability of the city of Pune as a destination for business. This will, in turn, increases interest because more and more international and domestic companies will start operations in the city or expand their existing setup. This will have an exponential effect on the residential real estate market as well.
