Things to know about Bangalore real estate

The establishment of world-class IT industries, advent of metro and good arterial roads has made Bangalore one of the most sought-after realty destination in India. Here are more details.

A study on real estate market reveals that despite market slowdown Bangalore has emerged as a strong and mature realty market in the last couple of years. Recent new launches in the low cost housing options within price range of Rs 4,000- 5,000 per sq ft have grabbed the buyer attention, with good inventories in different corridors of the city.

According to real estate consultancy firm JLL, inventories will soon dry out in 2016 and 2017 and property prices will firm up or perhaps many micro markets may go up significantly.

Especially, the IT driven micro markets of Bangalore city such as Whitefield have shown signs of strengthening in the last one year. Some locality with projects in the affordable and mid segment category have performed well in the pre-launch and resale stage itself.

In recent study of Bangalore realty market, the affordability factor is playing a decisive role during the sale of flats. The 2 BHK and 3 BHK apartments of sizes between 800 – 1300 sq ft are being offered, keeping the buyer budget in mind.
