Green shoots of improvement in new launches; 100% month-on-month rise in new launch absorption levels

2017 has been an action-packed year, not just for the real estate sector but for the entire nation.

While the structural changes and policy reforms (demonetization, RERA and GST) shook up the economy, it imbibed financial discipline, accountability and transparency across various sectors.

As per the statistics released by Economic Survey, the Indian economy is expected to grow at 7 to 7.5% in 2018-19, eclipsing China to become the fastest growing economy.

In 2017, the performance of Indian residential real estate was lacklustre due to the sector’s transition from an unorganized to an organized one, amidst changing regulatory environment.

The big-picture reforms are making the market buyer-friendly and further attracting global investors to consider India as one of the preferred destinations for real estate investments.

With two months into 2018, ANAROCK Property Consultant’s research report presents some of the trends reflecting the state of residential real estate market across the country’s top seven major metropolitan cities.
