The Home Building Boom

Until the late 90s, homeowners in India, were typically persons over 40 years of age. The average age of people buying homes has come down in recent years from 40 years and above to around 30 years.

Therefore, suburbs that used to be the destination of old people after retirement have become places where people in their 30s are living.

According to an apartment owner in a suburb outside Chennai, "I am 37, and I am not the youngest here — younger people are making more money. We bought the idea of happy living, so even commuting isn't really a problem, because you know that at the end of it you are coming to this environment - it's quiet, green and cosmopolitan."4...
