The Pune property market has undergone massive changes in the last decade.
Riding on the real estate boom, Pune has transformed itself from a pensioner’s paradise to a city where youngsters have come to invest in outskirt places like Talegaon. The Talegaon Pune property rates and real estate story is waiting to explode with time to come.
Read on to find why Talegaon is still a good bet if you are looking to make a safe investment in the real estate market.
What makes Talegaon so attractive ?
The location of Talegaon in Pune is bang in the middle of the three cities – Mumbai, Nashik and Pune. Talegaon is situated on the Mumbai-Pune highway and enjoys favourable connectivity. As a result, many companies have swooped down to invest in Talegaon. Investment by these companies has created a large employment base for the citizens and as a result they have flocked to Talegaon.
The industrial belt of Chakan (Chakan MIDC) and the automobile manufacturing hub are the main drivers of employment in Talegaon.
Some of the opportunities in Talegaon real estate market are created by :
Larsen and Toubro opening its plant
Bajaj and Jindal setting up facilities
General Motors producing the Chevrolet Beat and Spark at Talegaon in Pune
Talegaon is also very favourably placed from the important location of Hinjewadi which happens to be the major IT hub of Pune. The fact that close to 40,000 IT professionals are expected to work in Hinjewadi and that Talegaon is around 30 minutes away from it (approx 20 kms), makes Talegaon a hot destination among IT professionals.
The climate of Pune and Talegaon are ideal for residential housing. Compared to Mumbai which is around 2.5 hours away, Pune boasts of a hill station like climate.
Talegaon’s proximity to Mumbai via the Mumbai-Pune expressway gives Talegaon a major advantage in the Pune real estate market. In fact, the old Mumbai-Pune highway also offers good connectivity to Talegaon. Given this, Mumbaikars come down to Lonavala and Talegaon more often and many have based Talegaon as their weekend homes.
Another thing to note is that not only Mumbaikars but many Puneites are also making Talegaon their weekend destinations leading them to invest in their second homes. The pollution free climate and scant population make it a very attractive getaway. Obviously, this will not be the same forever and it is a matter of few years before Talegaon goes the same way as other parts of Pune have gone – sky rocketing prices and the unavoidable hustle bustle.
The infrastructure of Talegaon is undergoing massive changes. Residential societies are creating demand for basic amenities like schools and hospitals. Over the next few years, the availability of malls, schools and hospitals will increase significantly.
The property rates in Talegaon vary between 2200 psf (per square foot) to 3000 psf. This is on the lowest side in the Pune proprty market. In fact, Chakan also demands the same rate as Talegaon. So does Wagholi.
As far as properties for investment go, you could possibly be spoilt for choice. There are innumerable Pune real estate builders like the Siddhivinayak Group, Disha Direct, Om Developers, Naiknavare and Associates and many more who have thrown their hat in the ring and have launched residential projects. The one you cannot miss is Tata’s La Montana which has a plethora of amenities thrown in.
With so many builders jumping in the fray, you have apartments of all sizes and types available for you – 1BHK, 2 BHK, 3 BHK. Not to mention bungalows, villas and farmhouse plots. It’s all happening in Talegaon.
The residential demand in Talegaon will be on the rise in the future. In the Pune real estate market, Talegaon stands poised to hold its promise of safe returns over an extended period of time.
Invest if you can hold, avoid if you want quick returns.
