Demand and appreciation potential

Alexander Moore, Chief Executive Officer – India, LJ Hooker, states, “South Bangalore has an end-user driven market. The age profile reflects the tech employment market and is predominantly in the late 20s to 40 years bracket.”

According to Kalpana Murthy, Associate Director – Residential Services, Cushman & Wakefield, the affordable, mid and higher-mid segments are finding demand. “These locations are end-user driven and most of the demand is coming from mid and higher-mid income segments of IT/ITeS professionals in these areas. The average capital appreciation of 10-15 percent year-on-year depends on the project and location. Average rental escalation is 6-10 percent per annum”.
