Residential property prices in Mulund are Rs 11,350-Rs 18,700/sq ft, depending on the location, developer brand and facilities offered.

Both investors and end-users are finding Mulund a profitable realty destination. Apartments for rent are also in great demand in Mulund, due to the number of job opportunities in the nearby areas.
