The concept of affordable housing in Patna real estate or property circles in Patna is a gift of the downturn in 2008 in the global economy. While at no time is an economic downturn useful or welcome by anyone in the world and Patna, the 2008 global recession gave those looking for homes in Patna in the Rs 20 to Rs 30 Lakh segment something to cheer about. The lack of activity of home buyers in Patna in the midrange segment led many developers in Patna to venture into the affordable homes market in  Patna and Bihar. The result is a concept called “affordable housing in Patna” which is here to stay in Patna real estate.

Affordable homes in Patna typically combine the best of both worlds to the extent possible for a flat buyer in Patna. The carpet area is relatively smaller but many of the other basic amenities are offered at par with mid range segment in Patna real estate. This is possible due to the relatively lower land costs at locations these projects are developed in Patna–invariably in the suburbs. Land forms a large chunk of an apartment’s cost in Patna and when this cost is low, the apartment in Patna can be sold for a much lower price tag.
