Big vs small apartment configuration seems to be the upcoming debate in real estate. Throw some light on buyer preferences towards these trends
Hiral Sheth Gandhi: Small ticket-size or micro residential spaces are currently acquiring acceptance in the Indian property markets.
The pandemic-imposed consciousness about home ownership is responsible to spur revival in this residential segment.
The millennial community in particular are now highlighting aspects like home investments and are increasingly opting for cost-effective homes that fit well into their budget.
Factors like property location, an increase in the nuclear clans and the steady growth of luxury micro-homes have strengthened the preference for smaller configurations as opposed to bigger apartment size.

The speedily spreading virus, subsequent lockdowns, and an urge to lessen transmission risks have stressed the importance of residing in high-rises that offer functionality without negotiating on comforts and wellness aspects like breath-taking views, peaceful ambience, seamless connectivity and location advantage with a steady ROI prospect.
These factors contribute towards making real estate a safe investment bet offering steady returns as compared to other asset classes.
