Why is North Goa a better investment proposition compared to the South? The key reasons for more investments happening in the northern territory of Goa are because of the excellent tourism and commercial activities taking place there. North Goa is a diverse investment destination because of the lifestyle value it holds for many home buyers. It is an attractive place to invest and reside because it offers its owners a cosmopolitan lifestyle experience. This is why the northern beaches and suburbs of Panaji make for a sound investment decision. Builders also introduce fewer projects in South Goa for the same reason. Considering that the profile of investors in Goa includes both Goans and non-Goans, they expect a certain commercial and lifestyle value to their place of residence. Additionally North Goa is well connected and has better access to the entertainment centres in the state. Which areas in Goa offer high-end luxury properties? Goa has a growing luxury real estate market. It has been a favourite of celebrities and industrialists from all over the country. Few localities have stood out as hubs for luxury realty market in the state.

Dona Paula has emerged as a preferred locality for many Goans today. Some luxury projects in Dona Paula can cost upto INR 3 crores and above. With rising land prices, developers in the luxury segment are also demanding high price for their projects. This has resulted in the recent slowdown in the absorption of luxury projects in the state.

Retirement colonies are a rage in localities like Siridao near Bambolim and Nachinola near Mapusa. Builders have customised luxury villas or apartments with assisted living services for senior citizens. If you are planning to retire in a scenic location with all the amenities and facilities that you might need, consider looking for retirement villages in Goa. Other localities like Taleigao, Calangute, Pilerne and Dona Paula have also been on the realty radar for the development of large scale retirement villas.
