Newly-launched homes are back in demand after a prolonged period. While end-users continue to drive the housing market, newly launched homes are gaining traction. According to Anarock’s research, out of the total 2.37 lakh homes sold in 2021 across the top 7 cities, over 34% were newly-launched units. In 2019, the sales share of newly-launched homes was lower. Of approx. 2.61 lakh homes sold in 2019, newly-launched homes accounted for approx. 26%. In 2020, of 1.38 lakh units sold in the top 7 cities, 28% were launched during the year.

Hyderabad accounted for the maximum absorption share of new units among the top 7 cities. Of 25,410 units sold in 2021 in the city, approx. 55% were launched in the same year. MMR saw the lowest absorption of newly-launched homes – of 76,400 units sold in 2021, just 26% were launched during the year. The remaining were old projects launched before 2021.

The increased sales share of newly-launched homes, according to Anuj Puri, Chairman, Anarock, heralds the revival of investor interest. This assumes significance as over the last 3-4 years, investors had more or less exited the residential real estate market and were focusing on other asset classes.”

Also, well-capitalized branded developers with a reputation to protect have been ramping up their market share of new launches. Buyers are confident of such players’ ability to complete their projects on time. In 2021, of 2.37 lakh new units launched in the top 7 cities, the share ratio of branded vs non-branded developers was 58:42, compared to 41:59 in 2015.

While the return of investors is positive from the sales point of view, an end-user-driven market helps keep prices under check. As seen in the past, increasing investor activity can lead to faster price hikes.

City-wise Absorption Trends

The top two markets of MMR and NCR saw the lowest absorption share of newly-launched units at 26% and 30%, respectively. But compared to 2019, this share has risen in both cities in 2021 though it still continues to be lower than  other cities. Essentially, buyers in NCR and MMR are cautious and opt for either ready or nearing-completion homes, despite the higher prices. As per Anarock Research, NCR and MMR together comprise a massive 76% share of 6.29 lakh delayed/stalled units across the top 7 cities. These units were launched either in 2014 or before.
