Everyone aspires to live in a luxurious home, but few actually get to avail it. In a country like India which according to Forbes, boasts of 101 billionaires and 2.36 lakh millionaires in 2017 means that it’s not surprising that the demand for luxury homes is on the rise. The reviving economy has also infused its share of enthusiasm in homebuyers with a predictable rise in property developers offering premium luxury homes in the big cities. However, one has to be vigilant as many builders are cashing in on the demand for luxury homes and touting their sub-standard properties as being luxurious.
However, with everything being said, what exactly do the millionaires and billionaires of India want in their luxury homes? Here is a look at some of the top parameters that make an authentic luxury home.
