Is the History of Bangalore Real estate a concern to you?
Then this article will not only help you know more about Bangalore (Bengaluru) and its professionalism for years, But also guide you in terms of Bangalore Real Estate and Bangalore property rates.
Bengaluru the capital of Karnataka is proving to be a shining spot for real estate investors. The city has witnessed phenomenal migration for several decades to become the hub of Indian IT industry with a 40 per cent share.
Bangalore has never failed to lure settlers, investors and property buyers with its charm. It scored more on the growth index than any other south indian cities, while it remains the preferred choice of the most quality conscious realty clients.
Even though Bangalore saw some unrealistic rise in the property prices until 2007, the property prices in the city witnessed a sharp drop in the year 2007. In some areas like Sirajpur, where the concentration of IT firms is more, prices had come down by 20% while in posh localities for example Jayanagar and JP nagar, there had been a 15% fall. Such a drop seemed very strange especially when prices in Mumbai and New Delhi and indeed many other similar grounded cities were witnessing a phenomenal increase.
So what has led to a dent in property prices in the IT capital of India?
Experts believe that, the properties in Bangalore always had fake or rather inflated property rates. It had to soar because of the hype that persisted around the IT boom in the city. Some experts justify the sudden fall by saying that the property prices in Bangalore were unrealistically high until then. That led to a demand and supply mismatch as a result of which at least 5,000 apartments were lying vacant. Dealers, who used to sell at least around 60 flats in a quarter, could sell only about six.
Concluding the IT matter : The advent IT industry to the city led to a huge rise in realty prices. Sky high prices started getting quoted just because It personnel could afford it. Result : non-IT people too had to swallow these higher rates.
Inflated prices in turn generated a false realty market in the city, wherein people not even remotely connected with the construction industry started building apartments. Thus, a city, which had just 40 apartment buildings till 2007-8, had over a 1,000 in 2015. And a majority of them are still lying vacant. However If you compare the number of vacant properties, unsold houses etc in Bangalore with other cities like Mumbai and Delhi, it is still playing it safe.
Why is Bangalore an exception? Here are some reasons.
Bangalore witnessed a massive price correction during India's boom period
The reason why prices had not shot up in Bangalore the way they did in NCR or Mumbai is because the It capital city of India, saw a price correction for three consecutive years from 2008 until the second quarter of 2011
Land cost is not part of construction, so builders are relaxed-
Secondly, the Bangalore market is a best example of a joint venture market. This means that the developer doesn't invest much in developing a property here as the land cost is relatively cheap, and since the land-owner becomes the joint partner, the burden on the builder would be considerably lower.
Surge in demand only occurred because of affordable projects after a lull of 2 years-
