MMR’s Most Vibrant Housing Markets – Affordable To Ultra Luxury

Anuj PuriAnuj Puri, Chairman – ANAROCK Property Consultants

  • Among the top 7 cities, MMR saw most new  launches – nearly 13,600 units & highest sales at 15,200 units in Q2 2018
  • 17,220 promoters and 15,550 agents under MahaRERA – highest RERA registration Pan India
  • Stamp duty increase may be a slight dampener in the short-term

On the back of critical policy reforms like DeMo, RERA and GST, 2018 is seeing both sales and new supply picking up across cities. Interestingly, the Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR) leads this trend.

ANAROCK data indicates that out of the total new housing supply of around 50,100 units in Q2 2018 across the top 7 cities, MMR saw the highest number of new launches with nearly 13,600 new units – a 59% increase against the preceding quarter.

In terms of sales too, MMR clocked the maximum housing sales with approximately 15,200 units being sold in Q2 2018 – an increase of 26% against Q1 2018.

Luxury Segment (Rs.1 Crore – 2.5 Crore)

  • Andheri East in Mumbai saw the launch of nearly 2,230 units with average prices and sizes hovering around Rs. 27,400/sft and 510 square feet respectively.
  • Mulund West in Mumbai saw the launch of nearly 960 units with average prices at Rs. 27,400/sft and average size at 650 sft
  • Seawoods in Navi Mumbai, the third most active locality in MMR in this segment, saw the launch of more than 200 units. Average property prices are Rs. 12,500/sft while the average carpet area is 1,050 sft

Ultra-Luxury Segment (> Rs. 2.5 Crore)

  • Mazgaon in Mumbai saw the launch of nearly 820 units with average prices and sizes hovering around Rs. 65,000/sft and 950 sft respectively.
  • Tardeo in Mumbai saw the launch of nearly 550 units with average prices at Rs. 75,000/sft and size at 800 sft
  • Sanpada in Navi Mumbai saw the launch of more than 50 units. Average property prices are Rs. 21,000/sft while average carpet area is 1,250 sft

Immediate Outlook:

Maharashtra has emerged as one of the most active states in RERA implementation, and MahaRERA has been the primary driving force behind MMR’s regained momentum in 2018. In over a year, the authority has registered more than 17,220 promoters and 15,550 agents, the highest across the country.

While the proposal to levy a surcharge of 1% on stamp duty (increasing to 6% from the existing 5%) could prove to be a slight dampener in the short-term, the decisive return of buyers to the market is beyond question.
