Apartment s and land prices in Chennai, Anna Nagar has seen an upswing in the past 3 months and prices have risen by 6-8 lakhs per 1000 sq. ft.
The PropIndex Data states that in July-Sept 2013, the average price rise in the area has been up to 12% in capital values and 10% in rental values. The factors impacting price rise of real estate in the locality is the well-developed infrastructure in the area. However, there is a mismatch between the demand and supply which has also triggered the high prices. The ratio here is 90:10 and the high price quoted by land owners and slow clearance process of Chennai Metropolitan Development Authority is another reason of delay in closing the deals which ultimately impacts the supply adversely.
There are 4 arterial roads in Anna Nagar which connects this part of the city with other parts of Chennai. Another reason for increase in prices is the, the construction of Metro towers within 1-2 kms of Anna Nagar and the nearest metros station would be at Second Avenue Road.
