REAL ESTATE REMAINS A PREFERRED INVESTMENT ASSET CLASS FOR NRIs AND INTERNATIONAL PROPERTY SEEKERS
BANGKOK, Thailand — The PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards (India) programme, organised by PropertyGuru Group (NYSE:PGRU), Southeast Asia’s leading PropTech company, is now open for entries. Organisers of the 4th PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards (India) 2023 call on the country’s worthiest property development companies, real estate investment trusts, and design practices to highlight their achievements on an international platform.
Entry submissions are accepted online until 15 September 2023 via: asiapropertyawards.com
Real estate has been the preferred investment asset class for non-resident Indians (NRIs), according to research by Property Report by PropertyGuru, the official magazine of the Awards. NRIs gradually returned to the real estate market and bolstered sales of luxury homes in 2022.
The real estate sector of India has experienced a boost in recovery, with residential sales in major regions experiencing annual increases towards the end of last year.
The luxury residential segment has especially benefited from NRIs’ demand to invest in real estate aligned with a comfortable lifestyle in developed countries. Major cities in India have progressed to offer a diverse range of homes that caters to Indians overseas as well as affluent property seekers within the country.
The 4th PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards (India) follow one of the programme’s most diverse editions yet. Last year, the Awards in India were presented to various recipients that include one of the country’s most prolific real estate investment trusts.
Jules Kay, general manager of PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards and Events, said: “As with India’s dynamic property market, the PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards have diversified and expanded in the last few years. We have seen the quality of India’s residential, commercial, and industrial projects continually improve, thanks to the country’s finest property developers, real estate investment trusts, architects, and designers. We are thrilled to showcase some of the highest-quality properties across this ever-expanding market.”
The 4th PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards (India) will take place at The Athenee Hotel, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Bangkok on 8 December 2023.
