Hyderabad is one of the larger cities in India and it has a population of about 69 lakh people. Naturally, considering the number of people living in the city, demand for housing is high. Reports indicate that along with the increase in the demand for houses, there has also been a shift towards larger houses in general. The average house size that the people prefer in the city appears to be over 1,700 square feet as opposed to demands for smaller spaces in preceding years.
With increases in demand for housing and space requirements, the price of houses has also, quite naturally, increased. There is a report that indicates that the city has seen a close to 30% increase in housing prices. This necessitates a need for home loans. There are a number of financial institutions, both banks and non-banking financial companies that offer home loans in Hyderabad. These institutions are listed here.
