The data further shows that new launches rose by 28% during the same period to 18,573 units from 14,567 units as developers launched several projects post the lockdown was lifted.
This trend indicates that the real estate sector in India is looking at a revival after several months of lockdown announced by the Govt. to stop the spread COVID 19. The festive season which began in October also did better than the expectations which helped in the revival of the sector.
“We expect this trend to continue to grow in December and also 2021 onwards as the market is upbeat with the announcement of COVID vaccines hitting Indian markets by January. central and state govt. may also come out with favorable policies in the union budget next year to provide support to the sector,” Mr. Samir Jasuja, MD & Founder – PropEquity.
“The market in NCR, especially for premium housing, is witnessing stable demand and going ahead we should see several transactions finalizing as the market sentiment is on the upswing. Next year, we predict markets to reach pre COVID levels in terms of demand for all segments of housing including affordable, mid income and luxury.” Mr. Ankush Kaul, President (Sales & Marketing) – Ambience Group.
