 The city of the Taj Mahal, that is popularly Agra, about six hours from the capital city of New Delhi. The most important thing that has encouraged the real estate market in Agra is undoubtedly tourism. Tourism contributes largely to the GDP of the state. In return, the real boost in tourism comes from the Agra real estate industry that has a strong going and growth in terms of the developments on the infrastructural front. Agra is also a sprawling industrial town. Now Agra has become one of the modern cities providing affordable residential and commercial housing facilities. This is why the Agra real estate and property market is on the boom.

 The main reason behind this real estate boom in Agra is that this city is well connected with various ancient and upcoming cities. Thus, any development made in its adjoining cities will ultimately affect its growth too.

Though not traditionally, but in the recent years, Agra real estate developments included constructions of shopping malls, residential townships, commercial centers, farm houses, and resorts. Though it was mainly for the sake of tourism that these developments took place yet the town residents were benefited to a large extent. Various properties are being sold at a higher value while there are interior villages where the homes having a traditional and ethnic look are cheaper.
