Life in a Metro
No doubt, the life in a metro seems lucrative. However, there are certain by-products that come along to you. Heavy pollution, health hazards, fast and tiring lifestyle, over-crowded localities, dust and garbage all around, these are some of the additional facilities that you can avail by living in a metro. Traffic jam is another mess that you are supposed to deal with every day.
Is there an alternative available
There is a concept of Suburb in many developed countries. A Suburb is basically a mixed-use or residential area, existing either as part of a city or urban area or as a separate residential community within commuting distance of a city. The best thing about these suburbs is that the properties are available at a much affordable rate than their metropolitan counterpart.
The Suburbs in Delhi NCR
The satellite cities like Greater Faridabad, Bhiwadi, Neemrana, Palval, Modi Nagar, Kundli, Greater Noida, Raj Nagar Extension are some of the suburbs that fulfil the requirements of housing colonies with lavish lifestyle to a great extent. These suburbs offer many housing societies with all the basic amenities such as swimming pool, club houses, shopping complexes, 24-hours security, children park, etc. And the property prices in these regions are available in the bracket of Rs 2,200 to Rs 3,800 per square feet.
What should you do
Well, if you get all the facilities that you aspire at more than half of a price and not much far from the city’s limelight, should you still look at the metro. All you should do is to check all the facts about the developer you are selecting, enquire about the location, the property and negotiate for the price. You never know when you would hit the jackpot!
All the best!
