Bangalore’s Success – 10-Year Saga of Booming Progress
Owning a home for most of us can be a probable investment but foremost, it is majorly a necessity. The primary aim, thus, is to have a roof over our heads to call ours forever. But, as homebuyers, it is important to remember that this emotional decision is also a major financial checkpoint which will determine your future in the decades to come.
One can argue that other investments perform better than residential property but the recent data shows otherwise. At present, the returns from the house prices stand at the same level as the fixed deposits. So, if you are buying a home today with no thoughts about the returns, then think again.

Bangalore Is Not An Anomaly
If you are thinking that this trend was observed only in Bangalore, then that is not the case. The study analyzed the housing market returns in seven top-tier cities of India, including Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Pune, NCR, Kolkata, Mumbai, and Chennai. Hyderabad topped the list with a striking 13.99% ROI. Even cities like Kochi and Lucknow, as per the House Price Index, show 9.94% and 9.11% 10-year returns. Thus, investing in properties in these cities may prove to be a very fruitful prospect in the long run.
There were some exceptions in the list too like Mumbai and Chennai that, lagged with 6.72% and 6.15% respectively. It is interesting to note that Mumbai Residential proved to be a better investment in the short term. On the other hand, Delhi showed the highest figure for 1-year returns – a whopping 14.84% which makes it ideal for a short-term investment opportunity.
It can be observed that in the long run, more returns can be expected from the cities anticipating development and growth. Bengalore’s 8.98% return is a testimony to the fact that the city has a thriving real estate market and much potential for homebuyers.
