* Mumbai (15.2%), Gurugram (9.6%), Noida (8.2%) and Delhi (5.6%) have witnessed highest QoQ growth in demand.
* Pan-India prices increased 1.3% QoQ & 6.4% YoY; reflecting resilience of the housing markets vis-a-vi other real estate assets
Recovering from the pandemic-induced slowdown, the residential real-estate industry demonstrated inherent strength in Q1’ 2022, with pan India housing demand rising 4.6% QoQ and 6.7% YoY, reveals Magicbricks’ latest PropIndex Report for Q1’ 2022. Mapping trends in 13 cities across the country, the report highlights that Mumbai (15.2%), Gurugram (9.6%), Noida (8.2%) and Delhi (5.6%) witnessed highest QoQ growth in demand while Greater Noida (6.0%), Mumbai (3.8%), Ahmedabad (3.2%), and Chennai (2.9%) exhibited maximum QoQ growth in supply. The report also shares that delivery, size, location, connectivity and amenities are significant deciding factors for homebuyers and homes located in gated communities with health and security facilities have emerged as most preferred.
Elaborating on the same, Sudhir Pai, CEO, Magicbricks commented, “Increasing project completions, attractive offers from developers, supportive policies and improving employment opportunities have boosted buyer-confidence in the real-estate industry. While the present geopolitical situation is impacting the supply chain and input costs, we expect the momentum gained thus far to continue across demand and supply backed by new launches tailored to the evolving needs of consumers and all-time low home loan interest rates. In each of the cities mapped, the peripheral areas continue to be hotspots of demand driven by infrastructure development. These trends signal optimism and a stable outlook for the industry for the coming quarters.”
