Rapid urbanization, rising income levels, and a surge in middle-class demographics have changed the face of the Indian real estate sector. Buoyed by spectacular growth, the real estate sector in India is now the second-largest employer in the country.

While major Tier 1 cities are witnessing significant growth, even Tier 2 cities such as Pune and Coimbatore are seeing a surge in real estate activity. The real estate sector has opened the doors for direct foreign investment in India and is now offering new, exciting career opportunities.
