North Goa - Second Home –Investment
India's real estate sector comprises of four sub sectors namely housing, retail, hospitality and commercial sectors. While metro cities are preferred choices for a major chunk of the population, thanks to the good career prospects, high standard of education lifestyle choices, and access to much more within the city, living in it does not always guarantee a peaceful existence.
The constant hustle-bustle, long traveling hours, heavy crowd, uncontrollable traffic jams, excessive pollution and lack of space and greenery are a few of the downsides to city living. However in the past few years a rise in the trend of holiday homes can be observed as the people living in the city are consciously seeking opportunities to take a break from their fast-paced lives and invest in holiday homes.
North GOA - One such location that has long boasted of being India's favourite holiday spot with its sandy white beaches, clean blue waters and lush green fields is none other than Goa.
The Portuguese influenced architecture, delicious Goan food, relaxed lifestyle and not to forget, its most demanded pumping nightlife attracts tourists from all around the world as well as all over India.

People have come up with various full- fledged creative scenarios, in order to transform Goa into the ideal holiday-cum-home destination.
Real estate influence on NORTH GOA (2007 - 2015)
In 2007 Goa topped the list of second home investment destinations. However, post 2009; the real investment market in the state saw a fall in interest among non-Goans towards investment in the residential sector. In order to revive the market, the state government then increased the FSI (floor space index) in some prime locations including Margao, Which led to a major boost for the new projects and the market developed considerably in 2011-2012.
Eventually in 2015 Goa was recorded as the state having the highest per capita income in the country. This coupled with a growing economy supported by service and manufacturing industries, making Goa an attractive destination not only for domestic but also for international investors. Goa's `land acquisition policy ’ has made the market more lucrative than before. North Goa has come to be considered as one of the liveliest and more of an investment market since it offers better rental and resale avenues and it was the first to see a major development in terms of real estate.
