Knowing your workplace & also the fact that you hate bandra & western suburbs , I'd recommend Powai to you. I don't think 'Westernisation' is a criteria for you to buy a house. If you like the west so much, go live in america !

Fat chance with today's pricing. The Bandra-Worli sealink has only gotten this cute suburb closer to the city.

3.5 years down and my love for Bandra has only grown! Bandra gives you the kind of lifestyle that no other part of Mumbai does. The place has an inherent charm to itself, fueled by the most vibrant culture, fantastic people, the ocean, eateries and what have you. If my work place was in the 'burbs, I'd pick Bandra W as my home. Over any other location in Mumbai.

Who knows? Could happen one day

just out of curiosity gto, how much would a good 2 or 3 bedroom flat cost in bandra? what would be the price diff between a sea facing and a non sea facing flat?


also in today's economy, if a person had a budget of 40 to 60L for a flat in mumbai, which parts of mumbai would be ideal and in that price range?

The difference in the dates of the above 2 posts has witnessed the biggest recession and real estate downturn India has seen.

This thread needs a reality check now!

Decent 1000 sq ft. 2 bedroom : 1.5 - 2 crores in a good locality (15,000 - 20,000 per sq. ft. average in the good parts of Bandra). Additional premium for areas like Pali Hill (the best IMO) and Carter Road. Even when the market is down, an attractive building or location always retains its value, primarily because availability is far less than demand.

Very difficult. 40 - 60L is chump change for a 2 bedroom in proper Mumbai. Effectively, you are looking at a sq. ft. rate of 6,000 rupees. Have to go far suburbs (Malad, Borivali etc.).

Wow - this thread comes up after 3 years and what timing - just after I took charge of the flat.

Where you may ask ?

Yes please tell us where , My personal preference is for Powai , I stayed in Powai for my 2 years in mumbai and liked it over crowded places such as Bandra :-) generates kind of claustrophobia.
Anyway I am in Bangalore so my vote does not count.

I have a feeling you got yourself a pad in Bandra? C'mon, break the suspense. And while you're at it, let's have some pictures too!
