Plots have become a hot ticket for property investors on the post-pandemic marketplace. Undoubtedly, well-chosen land offers higher returns on investment when compared to apartments. Average plots prices across India's major cities, and especially in NCR, rose considerably over the last two-and-half years.
An analysis of buyer behaviour in the top seven cities in the last fiscal year FY21-22 shows that nearly 80% of demand is for mid-end and high-end homes, with the affordable housing segment accounting for a mere 10% of the demand.
this is the first time that in a quarter, NCR’s total unsold stock clocked in lower than in South India's collective unsold stock. In the West's MMR and Pune, the unsold stock declined by 10% between the pre and post-pandemic periods - from approx. 3.07 lakh units by Q1 2020 to approx. 2.75 lakh units in Q1 2022.
As of Q1 2022-end, the total available stock of affordable housing (<INR 40 lakh) in the top 7 cities is approx. 1,86,150 units; 2,34,600 units at Q1 2020-end
Chennai, Pune & MMR saw the highest supply decline of 52%, 33% & 27%, respectively
Supply of ultra-luxury homes (>INR 2.5 Cr) declined 5% in the same period – from approx. 41,750 units in Q1 2020-end to approx. 39,810 units by Q1 2022-end; MMR & Kolkata shed maximum ultra-luxury stock of 16% & 15%, respectively
Mid segment housing saw a 4% decline – from 1,97,880 units in Q1 2020-end to 1,89,310 units by Q1 2022-end
Premium & luxury homes (INR 80 lakh to INR 2.5 Cr) unsold stock increased in the same period
Mumbai, 19 April 2022: While the new supply of affordable housing has been shrinking over the last two pandemic years, demand remains healthy. ANAROCK data reveals that out of the total unsold stock across the top 7 cities, affordable housing inventory saw the most significant decline of 21% – from 2,34,600 units by Q1 2020-end to 1,86,150 units by Q1 2022-end.
Despite the withdrawal of all the sops by the state government, residential sales momentum in Maximum City has remained strong in the current fiscal. This indicates that the city’s housing demand is on a winning streak despite the withdrawal of stamp duty benefits.
Of the four quarters, Q4 2021 was by far the best, with housing sales in the top 7 cities attaining a new high of approx. 90,860 units in Q4 2021. This was the highest quarterly sales performance since 2015."
