The real estate market in Bangalore is on a growing spree in the past few years. It is not just the real estate in Bangalore, but ever other industry has been growing like none other. While this holds true, there are a few misconceptions about the city that have to be washed off so that people can see the real picture. If you are someone who does not know much about Bangalore and are looking for apartments in Bangalore with a shopper’s eye, then know these few facts before actually buying one.
- It is not the ‘Hill Station’ city anymore:
If you think that all this development growth of industry has not cost the city anything, you are wrong. The weather of the city has become far more hot and inconvenient from what it used to be. If you ask an old timer in Bangalore, you are going to hear him whine about the weather for a good long time. The summers are not cool anymore. 2014 saw Bangalore beating Delhi when it came to temperature.
So, if you think you can enjoy the weather all year round, you won’t.
- Not all Bangaloreans are drunkards:
Whenever you are looking for apartments in Bangalore, people tend to think that you are a drunkard. This is because the city hosts the largest number of pubs in the continent. You might also think that way because chilling with a beer is a common thing for people in the city. Does not mean they need driver services every night.
- No, the traffic is not smooth:
Commute is a pain in Bangalore. No matter how much you love the city, you will have to agree that the inconvenience caused by traffic in Bangalore is matching up to that caused in Mumbai or Delhi. There are unnecessary number of signals that will keep you blocked for a long time. Also, there are too many vehicles, many more than the road can handle.
If that was not enough, most of the roads are one-ways. If you have missed your building on a main road, or needed to get into a perpendicular road, you need to come all the way again.
- Bangalore is not the idli-dosa land:
If you are new and are still looking for apartments in Bangalore. You might think that all you find in Bangalore is South Indian food. That is not true. You have a number of restaurants and fast food joints that will give you a wonderful variety of cuisines from across the globe.
- Not all corporates in Bangalore are call center employees:
It is true that it was the foundation of the IT model set up in Bangalore. There is even a term called ‘Bangalored’ which means ‘Outsourced.’ Many companies in the western countries set up call centers in Bangalore as they found cheap labor in the city.
But the situation has taken a drastic turn now. There are companies that have technical teams and important people working out of Bangalore offices. It is also one of the most sought after places for the people who come to India from different countries on work.
- Bangalore has no language issues:
The South of the country is generally dreaded by the North Indians because they thing that they cannot manage without the regional language. While that might hold true for the rest of the places, Bangalore is one such city that will let you use English or Hindi to communicate.
Everyone, including the bus driver and auto-drivers will be able to understand either of the languages. If you really get unlucky and fond someone who know none other language but Kannada, then it is not difficult to find someone to translate.
Bangalore is a city that has been over estimated and under estimated a lot of times. While many think it is too good, the others think it is too bad. Whatever it is, anyone who lives in Bangalore calls it an addiction and has a very hard time leaving the city.
