Bengaluru: The prices of one-bedroom rental properties in the tech city are skyrocketing owing a steep contraction in inventories of two- and three-bedroom homes. The high demand has also led the landlords to increase the rents of the properties. The city has witnessed a rise of over 25 per cent rent in less than a year.

According to sources, current rental yields in the city for one-bedroom properties have soared to 4-6 per cent at many locations. Rental yield is the income generated by a rental property relative to its value.

Strategic location: The high rents of one-bedroom properties are also driven by the strategic locations of these structures near the commercial establishments.

Work from Office: What else is leading to the price rise is the return of office goers to offices after the COVID outbreak as they are opting for one-bedroom sets due to its easy maintenance and cost effectiveness. With the reopening of offices, many returning employees are opting for one-bedroom rentals due to their cost-effectiveness and easy maintenance.

Demand-supply gap: A notable uptick in rental price is also a result of difference in configuration between the one-bedroom and two- and three-bedroom properties as it creates a demand-supply gap, leading to soaring prices.
