It is rapidly becoming a major residential destination, attracting property investors. Begur currently has more than 50 new housing projects under construction and lies near areas like Hosur Road and Bannerghatta Road, where the property rates are higher

The Begur real estate market has seen some major activity, owing to its easy connectivity to the major IT parks in the city and also because of temples, which date back a few centuries. Begur has undergone a major change, since the IT boom in the 1990s, after which the demand for flats in Begur has gone up considerably. The locality, which was earlier very traditional and modest, has now turned into a cosmopolitan area.

Begur lies just off the Bengaluru-Hosur Highway and has a prominent history of its own. Begur was earlier a prominent destination, during the reigns of the Western Ganga Dynasty and Chola Kingdom. The Nageshvara temple is present here and dates almost 1,100 years. The Begur Fort is another major tourist attraction. The Begur Lake is another landmark in the area.
