City-wise unsold inventory

The report studies Bengaluru’s residential real estate trends since 2013, factoring in the city’s evolution in terms of infrastructure development, transport and connectivity.

Given the ever-escalating challenges the city faces on these fronts, a marked preference for walk-to-work options by homebuyers has become evident. That said, Bengaluru’s overall market profile retains most of its sheen thanks to its highly favourable confluence of market drivers.

While there has been fairly constant housing price growth in all segments since 2016, the maximum price rise in major cities of the state has been in the mid-segment.”
