It is the fact that land price varies with locality but the extent it is varying, is unbelievable. The price of a house at Malad, a Mumbai suburb, is Rs 3000 to 6000 per square feet; whereas, the price of the same at Vasant Vihar (Delhi) is Rs. 19500-32000. It is enough for confusing buyers and sellers.
Not only that the increment in price is also unbelievable. Price of Koramangala in Bangalore was Rs 1,250 per square feet, a single number. In 2008, prices were in the price range of Rs 7000-8000 per square feet. Prices in Park Street in Kolkata moved from Rs 3,500 in 2003 to a wider range of Rs 7,500-10,500. Prices of Worli (Mumbai) moved from the price band of Rs 5,500-10,500 in 2001 to Rs 16,000-40,000 in 2008. Places with wider price band include Alwarpet and Nungambakkam in Chennai, Andheri and Santacruz in Mumbai, Vasant Vihar in Delhi, Koramangala and Bannerghatta in Bangalore, Ballygunge and Park Street in Kolkata and Kalyani Nagar in Pune.
This trend of price variations though seems to be Indian phenomena. In the western world, prices don’t vary as much.
