After touching the nadir in mid-2020, following the Covid-19 pandemic and the stringent lockdowns, the country’s real estate sector has bounced back in 2022, in spite of global uncertainties. Data from leading industry researchers show, with demand for residential homes continuing to remain steady, unsold inventory in the housing market is declining fast.
From 234,600 unsold units at the end of March, 2020 that were available for homebuyers, the number has fallen to 186,150 units by March this year. According to Anuj Puri, Chairman, Anarock Group, “This is the highest supply reduction among all budget categories – clearly reflecting an enduring demand for affordable homes.”
Realtors are in concurrence. Leading players like Raheja Developers, Hiranandani Group, Gulshan Group and Signature Global, among others, are witnessing steady surge in demand for residential homes for the past few quarters.
