Monorail Impact On Real Estate Market In Mumbai

Updated: Dec 15, 2021
Will monorail impact the housing market of Mumbai

The 19.4-kilometer monorail line spanning the wide corridor across Chembur and Jacob’s circle has created news for all the right reasons. The project post becoming completely operational for the public in 2019 has helped in solving transportation woes amongst other problems along the pathway it runs and has hence, created ripples in the housing market. If you are considering investing in property in and around the surrounding areas, understanding the impact the monorail has had on the overall housing market will help you refine your search and shortlist the right piece of property for your requirements.

What is the impact the monorail has had on the housing market?

Helped in reviving the real estate market: The monorail has improved the connectivity of the surrounding residential areas and has helped in reviving the cost of property in areas that have been sluggish for a while.

For e.g.: Parel was witnessing a slump in property prices and witnessed a rise post the inauguration of the monorail.

Lead to a sharp increase in property prices: The announcement and the construction phase of the monorail witnessed a massive uptick in the cost of property in the surrounding areas. During the construction of the project, property in surrounding areas like Chembur and Wadala witnessed a sharp increase in property prices.

Property appreciation: Given the proximity of Wadala to the Eastern Expressway, monorail and the Metro-4 corridor, the MMRDA has proposed to increase the Floor Space Index (FSI) to 4 as a part of the Transit-Oriented Development Plan to increase the capacity of the market. Investing in property in the construction phase of the metro can enable homeowners to get the most out of their investments.

Choosing the right property to buy is doubly advantageous. It helps you to have firm control over your EMIs. It also ensures that the rate of interest does not get out of hand.

Improves connectivity: Purchasing a home in the vicinity of the monorail and in the surrounding areas can provide seamless connectivity which can prove to be a boon in case you are a frequent commuter.
