Mumbai, 24 April 2019: While ready-to-move-in homes remained the preferred choice for several homebuyers, new launches (which drew the least consumer interest in the previous survey) saw a decent revival according to ANAROCK’s Consumer Sentiment Survey H1 2019.
Over 18% of respondents now prefer new launch properties as against mere 5% in the previous survey.
Interestingly, 44% NRIs would now consider new launch properties over under-construction (to be completed in 1 year) or ready-to-move-in homes (obviously a welcome development for developers facing funding issues due to previously negligible advance sales).

To market properties across India to Kenya’s populous & thriving ‘44th tribe’ targeting investments in their homeland
Nairobi, 10 March 2019: India’s leading real estate agency ANAROCK has partnered with Satguru Group for an event to promote investment into Indian real estate by Kenya-based NRIs. This feature-rich event will be held on Sunday, 10th February 2019 in Nairobi.
During the event captioned as ‘Karmbhoomi Se Janambhoomi’, ANAROCK and Satguru Group will showcase attending NRIs with some of the best investment opportunities in India real estate.
The spread of options will encompass all housing formats from apartments and villas to townhouses in both the affordable and premium segments.
Shajai Jacob, CEO – GCC, ANAROCK Property Consultants says, “While there is a constant discussion revolving around NRIs from the Gulf, US, UK and Europe, Kenya-based Indians do not seem to appear on anyone’s radar. This is surprising, given that Kenya-based Indians – though only about 1% of the country’s population, are actually heavily involved in Kenya’s economy. In fact, Indians in Kenya contribute substantially in most of the sectors driving Kenya’s economy and operate countless small and large business enterprises in all of Kenya’s major geographies.
