11% Hike Observed in Mumbai Rentals

Rising realty rates may have resulted in a sharp decline in property sales, but it has led to a growth in rental value in Mumbai and other metropolitan cities in the country. Mumbai and the outskirts of the city has seen an 11% growth in rental value in the past year, according to a study conducted by private real estate portal, The figure for Bangalore, Pune and Delhi has shot up by 13%, 11% and 9% respectively.

The Worli residential market saw a 21.31% dip last year, while the figure for Prabhadevi, Parel and Bandra (West) fell by 18%, 12% and 11.57%. “The rent in South Mumbai had gone through the roof.

Borivli (West) witnessed a record 42.25% growth, while the rates have shot up by 35.04% in Powai, 28.32% in Malad and 20.40% in Kandivli (East).

Real Estate A real estate expert attributed the rise in rental value to exorbitant property rates in Mumbai. “People prefer to stay in rented homes instead of buying a house. Also, there is a huge influx of people in the city. As a result, there is a huge demand for rented homes,” he said. Government data compiled by the stamp duty department also shows that there is a 35% rise in the number of lease agreements being signed in the city.
