Where are people buying homes in Bangalore?

5 Most Transacted Residential Location in Q1 2022

 In the first quarter of 2022, more than 18,000 residential sale transactions were recorded in Bangalore. Leading the charts, while Subramanayapura witnessed the maximum number of transactions pegged at 852, Krishna Raja Puram one of the bustling locations of the tech city closely followed it, recording a sale of 700+ housing units.

Majority of the people actively look forward to having their own homes because of multiple reasons- the prime one being able to secure a safe roof over their heads that they can call their own. However, not every opportunity or location for buying a home fits the expectations of the homebuyers. The latter makes the journey of home hunting more arduous for a prospective homebuyer.

In these times of confusion and indecision, it becomes quite imperative for a homebuyer to make well-informed decisions backed by the market research, location profile, and feedback of the residents of the localities. But what if you are told that you can avoid all these time-consuming tasks by simply checking the transaction history for the localities? What else can be a better indicator of preferred locations among the homebuyers other than the number of transactions that are recorded for those locations?

At Square Yards, to help you find your next home buying location, here is the list of top localities in Bangalore, compiled as per the residential transactions data recorded in the first quarter of 2022. Let’s get started! 


Unlike the preference for Central Business Districts which used to sway the demand earlier, following the disruption caused by COVID-19, the demand trend shifted. A large number of people actively started looking forward to suburbs and the peripheral region of the top cities as their preferred locations for investments.

The housing demand for Bangalore – the hub of the IT/ITes sector was no different. Reflecting a strong home buyers’ demand and regained interest, the number of transactions inched up in the past few quarters. According to the Square Yards data, about 18,000+ residential sale transactions were recorded in the first quarter of 2022. While few select localities outshined the others, at large home buying appeared to be driven by mixed sentiments.

Adding on, some experts also believe that amid the scenario where the stock markets are volatile and mutual funds are underperforming, real estate has been once again in the focus as a stable asset class that can ensure higher returns. Keeping that in mind, let’s take a look at the locations where people are buying homes, and dig deeper into transaction data to unravel a few insights and  understand the location-specific housing market better. 

  • Subrayamanyapura

Easily accessible to Bangalore and neighboring towns and backed by very good connectivity, Subramanyapura is among those locations which homebuyers always look forward to.

Transactions data for Electronic city, however, dwindled a little. Well, this can be attributed to a variety of reasons, the small quarterly growth noted in Q1 2022 which recorded 375 transactions as compared to Q4, 2021 has been a hopeful trend.
