Top Ten Residential Areas In Hyderabad

In the past few decades, India’s middle class has grown prosperous as a result of increased purchasing power brought on by the IT boom and economic liberalization. With prosperity comes the desire to own a home.

Hyderabad too has witnessed this increase in demand for quality housing. The capital of the newly created Telangana state has long been viewed as a laid back, charming city famous for its Charminar, its people, its pearls, and its biryani. However, Hyderabad is now equally well-known for IT companies, robust infrastructure, good schools, clean air, affordable cost of living, and an increasingly cosmopolitan culture. In fact, the recent Mercer Quality of Living Survey named Hyderabad as the best Indian city to live in.

Within Hyderabad, there are many locations preferred for their convenience, comfort, and appreciation value of real estate.
