    The bull run in the Indian housing market continued in the first quarter of the year. Quarterly housing sales are at an all-time decadal high with approx. 1,30,170 units sold in Q1 2024 across the top 7 cities, reveals latest ANAROCK data. This is a 14% yearly rise against approx. 1,13,775 units sold back in Q1 2023.

    Anuj Puri, Chairman – ANAROCK Group, says “MMR and Pune accounted for over 51% of the total sales in the top 7 cities, with MMR recording a 24% yearly jump and Pune witnessing an over 15% yearly rise. New launches across the top 7 cities continued above the one lakh mark but witnessed a mere 1% yearly rise – from 1,09,570 units in Q1 2023 to over 1,10,865 units in Q1 2024.”

    “Notably, MMR and Hyderabad saw the maximum new supply, accounting for 51% of the total new launches across the top 7 cities,” says Puri. “Hyderabad saw a 57% yearly increase in new supply in Q1 2024, while MMR saw its new supply decline by 9% in the period. The quarter has recorded the highest ever sales in the last decade amid a significant rise in demand for high-ticket priced homes priced INR 1.5 Cr and above.”

    Despite new launches remaining above the 1 lakh mark in this quarter, available inventory in the top 7 cities dropped by 7% annually – from approx. 6,26,750 units by Q1 2023-end to approx. 5,80,890 units by Q1 2024-end. Among the top cities, NCR saw highest decline of 27% in its unsold stock in Q1 2024. NCR’s unsold stock is currently lower than in other prominent cities like MMR, Pune, and Hyderabad.

    India’s overall economic scenario remains positive, with the country’s GDP growth rate pegged as the highest globally, and inflation also seems to be under control. This outlook supports enduring homebuyer sentiment.

    Price Movement

    Average residential property prices across the top 7 cities have seen significant jump in the last one year – ranging between 10-32% in Q1 2024 when compared to Q1 2023, mainly due to increase in the prices of construction raw materials and overall rise in demand.

    Available Inventory

    Despite massive new supply added to the top 7 cities in Q1 2024, overall available inventory declined by 7% in Q1 2024 when compared to Q1 2023. The total available inventory in the top 7 cities as of Q1 2024-end stands at approx. 5.81 lakh units.
