Telangana real-estate is going to see a surge in prices in the coming few years, due to imbalance between demand & supply. During the phase of RERA implementation in the last 2 years, there were lot of uncertainties among builders, due to which not many new projects were launched in the region. Due to this reason, inventory has fallen to just about 2 quarters of sales. Due to political stability in the region, demand will continue to pickup with low available inventory, thus escalating real-estate prices in the region. If buyers are looking for investments in Telangana, this can be the good time to invest.
