  • Mumbai among ten most expensive places to rent home

    As India witnesses a spurt in property prices, its financial capital Mumbai has been ranked as one of the world’s top 10 expensive locations in terms of accommodation cost.
    Mumbai, which is ranked seventh, is followed by Shanghai, on whose lines the government is planning to develop the Indian financial hub.

    The list comprises Hong Kong, Tokyo, New York, Moscow, Seoul, London, Mumbai, Shanghai, Caracas (Venezuela) and Paris (in order of their position), according to a study by international human resource organisation ECA International.
    High rentals in Tokyo, New York, Seoul, Moscow, London and Paris largely reflect high living costs in these locations, while Mumbai, Shanghai and Beijing suffer from a shortage of modern and well equipped properties, pushing prices up for those properties that do.
    However, Caracas, capital of Venezuela, makes to the list of top 10 expensive cities for renting a three bedroom apartment as people have to spend huge amounts on security.
    Mumbai is the prime choice for many multinational firms for establishing their base as they expand operations here, which is on the way to be transformed into international financial hub.
    Though five of the top 10 most expensive locations are in Asia, the list of world’s cheapest locations to rent a three bedroom apartment does not include any Asian city.
