Hi guys. Going to be relocate to Bangalore and would be working at Intel ORR. Completely new to the city but have been warned about traffic by friends. Not going to drive anytime soon as well.
Any recommendations for gated communities nearby that would be within 15 mins walk to/from work?
1. Going to rent a 2BHK. What would be the ballpark rent inc maintenance?
2. Water availability in such a place?
3. Anything that I need to watch out for before signing an agreement?

      Real estate has actually fallen after demonitization... i remember days when black money transactions were so prevalant in real estate.. at least now it's mostly white, but people don't have a lot of money

    I live around 3km from Intel so I'm pretty family with the locality. You should start your search with this gated community - Adarsh Palm Retreat. It has both villas and apartments, and it probably the closet livable community near Intel. There are a lot of apartments so you should be able to find something here within your budget. Even if it is outside, try to take get a place here. Thank me later.

    Have a few questions about life in Singapore.
    Is 125 SGD enough to sustain a family of 3 in Singapore?
    Any idea how job searching from India for Singapore jobs works?
    Also if husband has work permit can dependent also work?

      Thanks, naja. Adarsh Palm Retreat does look the closest on Google maps!

      Regarding Sg - I presume it is 125Ksgd? If so, its pretty decent salary for family of 3. Taxes are super low. The two big expenses would be Rental and Child School fees(If private schools). Both have a wide range so depends on the specifics and are subjective.

      Try to get through Internal transfers if possible. Else, LinkedIn is the best best. Which industry/domain are you working on?

      Dependent can work provided you get something called 'Letter of Consent' from Ministry of Manpower. Used to be a formality earlier but I am not sure how they are issuing LoC now.

      Previously worked near intel campus. Belandur. That area has lot of traffic. But can’t help. 2 bhk can cost you 20 to 30 k. This was in 2013. Not sure now. Btw may I ask you are you relocating from hp here ? And exp in USA ? And offered TC in India ?

    1) if you dont have any other committments due to spouse job or kids school, then best to stay closest to office. 2BHK will cost 25K-35K with good amenities.
    There are many apartments in bellandur, search online on property rental sites.
    2) Half of bangalore runs on tanker water. Thats what you will get wherever you live. Water quality is very poor. You can install personal water softneres, thats max you can do.
    Obviously you will have to install RO for drinking water or get mineral water bottle.
    3) I think all rental agreements are standard.

      Thanks for the detailed response. If its between the rental you mentioned, quite decent rental. I am not looking for over the top luxury either.
      More concerned about water now.
