In our quest to land a small affordable office space, we have barked up every possible tree and it just seems impossible to find a small startup space, lets say about 500 to 1000 sft at an affordable price (less than 20 grand?)
Here are some of the places/options where we have looked:
– Web based real estate portals like magicbricks, sulekha, kijiji, locanto and craigslist.
My impression is that there is a lot of spam on these sites. Property agents putting up a whole bunch of non-existent properties which then are used to source leads. Landcentury was the most comprehensive, primarily because ads are from times of india and also online posts. Craigslist was the most spammed!
Most of these guys are not interested in these small deals. I was quite intrigued by what propIQ had to offer. With pictures and videos, that saved a lot of unnecessary trips!
– Business Centres
There a a bunch of new business centres in Bangalore like Evoma, Regus, DBS etc. But nothing within the budget and neighborhood
– Individual Houses for rent
This seems to be the only option left for starting a small office in Bangalore. Rent out a small house and fit it out to your requirements
