Magicbricks, India's leading real estate platform, released its flagship Rental Index for April-June 2023, observing that the rental demand in Bengaluru increased 12.8% QoQ, supply increased 23.3% QoQ while average rents increased 8.1% QoQ.
Micro-localities such as Whitefield, Sarjapur Road, and Marathahalli in the eastern expanse of Bengaluru, were the top most searched micro-localities. The report highlighted that demand for 2BHK units dominated the market commanding 64% of the share. The rental preferences of most tenants reflect a desire for budget-friendly properties, with a rental range of INR 10,000 to 20,000 per month with 51% of tenants opting for these properties.
Sudhir Pai, the CEO of Magicbricks, expressed, “Over the past year, rental housing demand surged in major Indian cities, driven by returning employees and students. Return to office culture boosted the need for workplace-proximate housing while educational institutions resumed in-person activities, drawing students back to city centers. Meanwhile, as property values soared, homeowners seized opportunities for profitable property sales over rentals, reducing supply. This, coupled with high demand, notably hiked rents across prominent Indian cities.”
Further, the report also indicated that in Bengaluru, 41% of tenants preferred semi-furnished apartments.
