Zerodha's co-founder Nikhil Kamath is the owner of Rs 9000 crore but he does not have his own house. Nikhil Kamat is against investing in real estate property. He still lives in a rented house. Recently, while giving his views on money and property, he has said something for the people living in metro cities. He has said that there is no real wealth in Bengaluru. Here people have paper money. Here people have earned paper money by working in tech companies. Tech companies don't have cash, so you just think you're making money.

Talking about this in detail, Nikhil Kamat said that property rates are very high in cities like Bengaluru. The prices of houses and offices and interest rates are also beyond limits. There is no logic behind such high prices. For this reason he prefers to live in a rented house. He believes that it is better to live in a rented house than buying an expensive house in a big city.
