Falling under the MMR, Ulhasnagar has been gaining a lot of popularity off-late, courtesy of its developing infrastructure and affordable real estate options. The city houses a population of close to 7 lakh residents, covering an area of 28 sq. km. The mid-segment locality offers a range of ready-to-move 1BHK flats and proximity to employment hubs like MIDC Dombivali, with top developers Birla Estates, Vardhaman developers, and JP Group developing exciting projects in the pipeline for areas such as Ulhasnagar 4. 

Managed by the MMRDA, the city offers excellent connectivity via road and railway and a proposed extension of Metro Line 5. Regarding commercial viability, Ulhasnagar serves as a production centre for rayon, silk, electronic appliances, and dyes while also known for its cloth, furniture, and electronics market. Two other sectors contributing to the economy of Thane’s metropolitan region include travel and tourism. A relatively unknown fact, Ulhasnagar is one of the largest jeans-producing centres in the world. The top-class infrastructure, coupled with ease of commuting, helps aid the growth of small industries and businesses. These factors have played a key role in making the MMR city popular among home buyers. 

Situated 58km from the financial capital Mumbai, Ulhasnagar has shown an appreciation rate of 9.3% in the last year, with the current price per sq. foot being an estimated ₹4,700.

Thus making the city a top prospect for real estate infrastructure, with space availability a bonus.
