Residential real estate market in Zirakpur

Due to limited availability of land parcels in the city of Chandigarh, property prices have become quite high. Thus, both investors and buyers have started to look out, which is why Zirakpur has evolved as a potential real estate hotspot.  Moreover, the city boasts of well-built inter and intra city connectivity, which further adds to its appeal.

Buyers’ profile in the city includes local investors, investors from Delhi NCR and HNIs. Additionally, people who have businesses in Ludhiana and Jalandhar also consider Zirakpur due to its swift connectivity.

Due to good connectivity to the Rajiv Gandhi Chandigarh Technology Park in Chandigarh, which houses several IT/ITeS giants like Infosys, Dell, IBM and Tech Mahindra, housing demand is also catalysed by the employees of this IT Park.

However, tottering basic infrastructure have been the Achilles' heel, which in a way is hampering the realty growth of this town.
