Slowly outgrowing its reputation of holding numerous affordable housing options, Thane is now only left with a few select options for home buyers looking for budget homes. Those investors searching for residential real estate within a limited budget of Rs. 15 Lac to Rs. 30 Lac may have to explore the extended peripheries of this Mumbai suburb. Areas like Titwala, Palghar, Boisar and Badlapur are now offering properties that can be acquired within a smaller budget. These extended suburban areas not only offer real estate at lower prices, but are ideal from the investment point of view.
