7 best locations for real estate investment in Mumbai in 2020 Buying Guide

Mumbai's real estate in 2019 had seen skyrocketing property prices and a significant demand-supply discrepancy had been seen. Thereafter, the ongoing economic slowdown led homebuyers to shift their buying plans to the next year. Likewise, this year has been difficult for various industries due to the pandemic. Real estate seemed to hit bad amongst other industries. According to Mark Zandi, a famous American Economist,  "An economy isn't going to recover until the real estate market finds its footing". We agree with what Mark Zandi has to say! As we know that after darkness there comes light but we need to wait to see it. Well, the opportunity is now since 400 builders have decided to waive off stamp duty. Let's look out for the best real estate investment location options that would reap your profits in the future if invested at the right location, in the right budget and on the right property.
