A developing suburban in the Palghar district, Vasai East, hosts a population of over 4.3 lakh residents in an area estimated to be 44.08 sq. km. Some of its MMR neighbouring localities include Vasai West, Naingaon East, and Nalasopara (East and West). A developing area in the northern outskirts of Mumbai, the neighbourhood offers many affordable housing options, great connectivity, and social infrastructure. It is also a known tourist spot for its religious and lush green sites, such as the Vajreshwari Temple, Padmashree Siddha Yogapeth, Amar Land Wonder Park, and Amar Park. 

Nonetheless, this blog will look at factors that make flats in Vasai East so affordable and their growing demand.
