It’s that time of the year again when people from all parts of the country embark on a new journey in an unfamiliar territory. People with dreams and aspirations to be more, to do more.
Bangalore has been at the forefront of this in-migration flux witnessing an increase of 47% in its population over the past decade as per reports (Source: Business-Standard.) Growing from the IT hub of India to the Silicon Valley Of India. Bangalore has harboured and nurtured many such ever since the rise of the internet age, while itself growing in stature and opportunities.
If you are one of those who is planning to take that leap and move to Bangalore, we thought we’d lay a helping hand to make this huge leap a little easier.
When you first come down to a new place your initial go to options instantly are economy hotels or lodges, or company accommodation. While it might be comfortable you can’t forever stay there cause it will never be as good as home.
To help you find that homely feeling in an unknown place, we listed out a few of the simplest ways to find your own abode.
Looking for something economical? Or, looking for an individual room that doesn’t cost too much? Or, maybe a place that takes care of your meals with your stay. Well, Bangalore city is filled PG accommodations that cater to individual requests. Moreover, with the emergence of startups like Zolo, NoBroker and more finding PGs got a lot simpler. You could also just stroll through the inner roads of BTM or Koramangala and be surprised at the options you find.
- Shared living.
You could also choose to live with many others who just like have adopted Bangalore in their journey with shared living spaces. Opt in for the services of NestAway, GrabHouse, Homigo, and choose either to rent an entire room or just a bed space from something that fits the budget to something more luxurious.
- Rented Apartments
While you could always go with the above options nothing beats the feelings of having your own home albeit rented. Just log on to Common Floor, Magic Bricks or No Broker and rent your own apartment. You can find a home ranging from a studio flat to a 5 bhk if you plan on bunking in with your friends, time for late night gupshup? And, you can set your rented apartment with GrabOnRent, that helps you rent furnitures, appliances and lots more for as long as the need be.
One of the simplest solutions to all your housing hassles, brokers! While highly efficient the extra brokerage fees make it a less economical option. Moreover, with the emergence of multiple platforms brokerage services have seen quite a dip. Just walk down the streets of the area you want to stay in and you’ll be amazed to see the number of real-estate agencies and broker agents contact details stamped on polls and walls.
- Facebook Groups
With the ever growing reach of Facebook, it comes as no surprise that Facebook can be your ultimate saviour in this hour of need. Join groups such as Bangalore : Flat & Flatmates – No Brokers, Flats and Flatmates (Bangalore Chapter), etc. With regular postings for requirements of flatmates and new listings of apartments available for rent. You don’t have to search any further.
The first step is always going to be the hardest, we understand that but as you start learning more about the city, the people and you can never miss the weather, it gets simpler.
