These micromarkets can now be clearly plotted on the real estate life cycle charts on the basis of several factors like infrastructure development, real estate development, occupancy levels, commercial activity, and rental and capital value trends.
One such high-potential and promising location is Golf Course Extension Road. This location abuts two major micromarkets — Golf Course Road and Sohna Road.
As the name suggests, the location is a logical extension of the current well-established and prominent Golf Course Road. Over the years, Golf Course Road has seen successful development of various retail, commercial and residential asset classes.
