Mysore, the second largest city of Karnataka, is located in the vicinity of India’s IT hub, Bangalore or Bengaluru. It is barely 140 kilometres from the capital city, Bangalore and is widely known for its festivities during the festival of Dusshera. Mysore is fast emerging as the next most preferred IT destination after Bangalore due to the congestion and resulting saturation of the country’s IT hub.
In order to support the growth bandwagon of IT leaders, Mysore has been chosen as the upcoming software nucleus. According to analysis of real estate sectors, it is actually the prospering of IT sector that brings about a boost in real estate trends of a city. Mysore is witnessing the launch of various IT projects, thus, leading to infrastructural developments and generating needs for expansion of real estate sector. Therefore, as evident by the increase in demand for both residential and commercial property and the consequent hike in property rates, the trends of real estate development in Mysore are no different.
After flooding Bangalore with global software companies, IT majors are expanding their operations in the nearby city, Mysore. Undoubtedly, its favorable location i.e. being in proximity to the technology capital has proved highly advantageous to Mysore. When the focus of IT industry was Bengaluru, the property rates in Mysore were quite low and affordable while the real estate of Bangalore was flourishing. Since, this interest has now been displaced and shifted to Mysore, its real estate sector seems to be reaching an all time high. The modernization program has already begun with the primary task of improving connectivity of the city to other regions.
The revamping of airport, the doubling of railway tracks between the cities and the completion of Bangalore-Mysore expressway are some of the recent developments taking place to create a better communication network. Large numbers of residential and commercial developments are also under progress to accommodate the demands of both individuals and large-scale companies.
Some of the upcoming residential properties include Shalom Voyagers’ Central Park at Ideal Jawa; Brigade Group’s Brigade Citadel in Yadavagiri, Brigade Horizon in Siddhartha Layout and Brigade Solitaire behind Lalitha Mahal Palace; Damden Properties’ Beryl, Square, Prithvi, Solar and Arbor and many others.
The commercial real estate of Mysore has become the hottest choice for many corporate giants for both carrying out business operations and as an investment destination. The properties in Landsdown Building, Devaraje Urs Road, Sajjan Rao Road, KT Street, 100 ft Road, Irwin Road and MG Road have the highest demand for building up of office spaces.
The price of property in Mysore have already doubled and even trebled in many of its important areas in last few years. It has been indicated clearly that the overall growth of the city that includes the speedy rise of real estate, information technology and retail sectors is all set to fuel up the property rates further. The special interest of NRIs in Mysore property is another major reason for the hike of property prices in the region.

Mysore is also popularly known as the ‘City of Palaces’ as it houses various beautiful palaces including the Mysore Palace.
