Knight Frank India’s, shared perspective on the performance and future of the residential market share across the 6 major metros offers some valuable insights.
Delhi NCR: A distinct supply increase from new sectors opening in Gurgaon, Noida and Greater Noida continue to lead the market, while a controlled supply check of the quantum of unsold inventory will make and keep the NCR market stable.
Mumbai: Mumbai’s phenomenal property price hikes and downward diving sales volumes, clubbed by a stagnant job scenario have affected sales momentum adversely. This muted account, will increase shares around its peripheral markets.
Bengaluru: A steady supply coupled by stable absorption continues to lead the overall residential market. Being an end user driven market, Bengaluru ensures a healthy growth for 2013.
Pune: Drawing the IT/ITeS with the manufacturing sector and a host of NRIs, Pune continues to gain maximum traction in the residential space, going forward a marginal drop in new launches could stagnate prices, as supply overhang decreases. Pune still boast of luxury budget homes as something special.
Hyderabad & Chennai: IT/ITeS driven residential demands are expected to stabilize in both cities, with absorption to be well maintained with maximum traction seen in West Chennai & West Hyderabad. Both continue to grow exponentially.
The Silver lining for those who missed the boat last year, both developers & consumers, 2013 starts with a fresh beginning with something for everyone and offers a window of opportunity for those anxious to move into their dream home.
