Beloved Bandra

I think I am going to be sick. I was browsing this site for houses on rent in Bandra (W), my erstwhile home. The rent that landlords are asking for is ridiculously insane!

It started from Rs 20,000 & went up to Rs 60,000 (I’m not kidding!!) for a 1 Bedroom Hall Kitchen apartment of 300-600 sq ft!!!!!

I mean, is that even real?? Are there people out there who are willing to sign up for such insanity??

Apparently, there are, else landlords wouldn’t be making such insane demands in the first place. And I thought recession had driven real estate prices in Bombay down?

What price does a person really have to pay in Bombay to be able to live in a place of his/her choice?

Will I ever be able to go back & live in my beloved Bandra again? :(

@The Knife - I think I saw a 1 room kitchen (minus the hall) for 20k. It's insane!

The sad thing is, having lived in Babdra for more than a decade, I don't even blink at these rates. Let me know if you are ever serious. I have two brokers who are very down to earth and understand the needs of people like us. They could get you good stuff at twenty.
