Affordable Residential Areas to Buy or Rent in 7 Major Cities
An ArthaYantra Buy vs. Rent Research

Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh, India, Thursday, April 04, 2013 — (Business Wire India) — ArthaYantra.com, India’s first integrated personal financial service company, has concluded an exclusive research on the real estate market in Seven Cities: Mumbai, Delhi NCR, Chennai, Kolkata, Bangalore, Hyderabad and Pune. The research aims to provide merit based answer to the important question of buying vs. renting to salaried professionals (Annual salary range 8-25 lakhs). The research analyses the cost associated with owning and renting a house across different prime localities in the above cities.

In order to create an objective measurement metric, ArthaYantra developed a proprietary composite score “ArthaYantra Buy vs. Rent Score” (ABRS)T to address the buy vs. rent discourse. ABRSTM not only aids in making the Rent vs Buy decision but also explains affordability and need to buy or rent in a city.

ArthaYantra’s research addresses important consumer questions such as

— How much more money does a professional need to shell out for buying a home compared to renting it?

— Can the professional actually afford this additional amount?

— When should a professional buy a property?

— When should a professional rent a property?

ABRST answers these questions by considering three important factors: rental value, property price and gross income.

Nitin B. Vyakaranam, CEO AthaYantra, adds “Most of consumers today make home buying decision based on emotions, subjectivity and qualitative arguments. In our efforts to bring objectivity to consumers’ mind, we have added ABRST calculator to our personal finance platform Arthos which is freely available on our website. One can find out how owning or renting a house is going to impact his/her overall personal financial life and get advice on whether a person should buy or rent.”
