Availability of homes at affordable prices with improving connectivity due to metro lines has driven the launches. Within Hosur road, Electronic city and its vicinity witnessed good volume of launches followed by locations around Bannerghatta Road. The Bellary Road submarket with 23 percent share of launches witnessed new residential projects in many precincts such as, Thanisandra, Yelahanka, Jakkur, Bagaluru and Hosahalli in the mid-end housing category.

According to Das, Reputed developers like L&T, Brigade Group, Godrej Properties, Puravankara Group and Salarpuria Sattva Group have launched projects in Bellary road.

Most of the submarkets witnessed good sales in H1 2019 when compared to H1 2018. “The sales growth could have been higher, but was partly hampered as end-users deferred buying in wake of the impending elections,” explained Das.
