Property prices have appreciated significantly over the past five years, However for the overseas Indian, it is just a marginal increase owing to depreciation of the Indian rupee. This has made investments in India’s real estate more affordable and extremely lucrative for our brothers and sisters overseas.
The advantage lies in the fact that while you earn in foreign currency you can invest back home in rupees . It is blessing in disguise for NRI’s as the property is almost 30% cheaper when compared to Indian citizens. NRI’s looking at investing in property in India should consider commercial spaces as you can expect returns of 10 – 11% per annum from commercial investment. In commercial real estate you not only make a profit on the sale of appreciated commercial property,the rental cash flow is also remarkable.
So, the NRI’s looking at commercial real estate here are some tips that might help you make a favorable decision.
  • Location
