Housing Sales in Top Gear

Torbit - March 29, 2024 - - 0 |

With mid-segment, premium and luxury housing in high demand, housing sales across top cities are seeing high sales.

The bull run in the Indian housing market continued in the first quarter of the year. Quarterly housing sales are at an all-time decadal high with nearly 1,30,170 units sold in Q1 2024 across the top 7 cities, reveals the latest Anarock data. This is a 14 percent yearly rise against approximately 1,13,775 units sold back in Q1 2023.

MMR and Pune accounted for over 51 percent of the total sales in the top 7 cities, with MMR recording a 24 percent  yearly jump and Pune witnessing an over 15 percent  yearly rise. New launches across the top 7 cities continued above the one lakh mark but witnessed a mere 1 percent yearly rise – from 1,09,570 units in Q1 2023 to over 1,10,865 units in Q1 2024.

Notably, MMR and Hyderabad saw the maximum new supply, accounting for 51 percent of the total new launches across the top 7 cities. Hyderabad saw a 57 percent yearly increase in new supply in Q1 2024, while MMR saw its new supply decline by 9 percent in the period. The quarter has recorded the highest ever sales in the last decade amid a significant rise in demand for high-ticket priced homes priced INR 1.5 Cr and above., according to Anuj Puri, Chairman, Anarock.

Despite new launches remaining above the 1 lakh mark in this quarter, available inventory in the top 7 cities dropped by 7 percent  annually – from approx. 6,26,750 units by Q1 2023-end to approx. 5,80,890 units by Q1 2024-end. Among the top cities, NCR saw highest decline of 27 percent in its unsold stock in Q1 2024. NCR’s unsold stock is currently lower than in other prominent cities like MMR, Pune, and Hyderabad.

India’s overall economic scenario remains positive, with the country’s GDP growth rate pegged as the highest globally, and inflation also seems to be under control. This outlook supports enduring homebuyer sentiment.
