Capital values soar in high-end and luxury residential segments in Delhi-NCR and this momentum is expected to continue in the latter part of this year.
The steady growth in capital values in Delhi , Gurgaon and Noida , has been made possible owing to factors like new launches with better amenities and change in buyers’ behaviour as they become more quality-conscious. The residential market is riding on the end-user’s demand and an overall increased sentiment for buying post the pandemic. This trend is likely to witness a continued momentum in the rest of 2022, according to the latest report by Savills India, a global property consulting firm. The report details themes driving the residential market with increased focus on the rising prices, amid the post-pandemic demands.

Shveta Jain, Managing Director, Residential Services, Savills India opines that the residential market is on its path to recovery after a prolonged period of uncertainty. In some cities, the residential market is back to pre-COVID levels while the others are moving along in that direction. With trends like hybrid work acquiring a strong foothold and permanence, the residential market has gained momentum and evidently, for the larger home segment. The need for larger spaces has led to homebuyers’ sentiment leaning towards 3/4bhk apartments with large terraces/roof terraces, plots, standalone bungalows, farmhouses, villas, and holiday home locations.
