Out of which 80% of the visitors were looking to buy Mid-Luxury properties in Mumbai, Thane and Navi Mumbai region and the balance 20% looking for affordable and High End Luxury in Mumbai & MMR region. The remaining 25% of the overall visitors were looking at properties in the Neral-Karjat, Panvel, Raigad and the Mira-Bhayandar region. Apart from various offers at the expo, the other factors that led to higher sales were stable interest rates and homebuyers’ growing desire to upgrade to larger and more spacious homes.
