5 Top Rental Localities In Ahmedabad
Ahmedabad, the financial centre of Gujarat, sees a huge influx of people migrating to the city every year which ensures a continuous demand for new homes. Not just homes for sale, but those for rent are in great demand, too.
“There’s always a high demand for rented accommodations. People move to the city as a result of shifting of job location or for career opportunities. Moreover, owing to good healthcare facilities, there are also people coming to the city for treatment of their illness. Even Non-Resident Indians (NRIs) seek temporary accommodations when they come here, say for a period of 6 months or one year,” says Ashapuri Real Estate Owner Rupa Patel.
