Housing market continues to shine ; New launches surge 86 % across top 8 cities: PropTiger.com Data

Mumbai, 7th April 2023: India’s top eight primary residential markets showed strong performance during the  January-March period this year with both sales and new supply rising 22 per cent and 86 per cent YOY respectively, according to the PropTiger.com report.

PropTiger.com, the country’s leading digital real estate brokerage company is owned by REA India, the country’s largest full-stack real estate technology platform that also owns Housing.com and Makaan.com

According to the report titled Real Insight Residential – January–March 2023, housing sales increased despite further hardening of interest rates on home loans. To tap rising demand, real estate developers aggressively brought new products to the market. Sales rose to 85,850 units across eight cities in January-March 2023 from 70,630 units in the year-ago period. New launches grew 86 percent to 147,780 units — highest in a quarter — from 79,530 units across these eight major cities.

“The Indian housing market is witnessing significant growth, with both sales and new launches on the rise. This is particularly noteworthy considering the challenging global environment and the hardening of interest rates on home loans in the domestic market. Despite these obstacles, the report highlights a high double-digit growth of 22% in housing sales during the first quarter of 2023, reflecting sustained sales momentum.,” said Mr. VikasWadhawan, Group CFO, PropTiger.com, Housing.com & Makaan.com.

Mr. Wadhawan further added that “The surge in new launches also provides evidence of real estate developers’ confidence in the market and their commitment to cater to the rising demand.”


Ms. Ankita Sood, Head of Research, PropTiger.com, Housing.com & Makaan.com said, “The first quarter of 2023 definitely brings cheer to the residential realty market. Both demand and supply across the top-8 cities have registered double-digit growth. Where we see new supply reaching at an all-time high with a whooping 86 percent YoY growth, the sales have grown at a relatively slower pace at 22 percent mainly owing to the homebuyers looking for the right product.

Though as a welcome move, the April MPC has paused the rate hike, we expect demand to move in close ranges given the macroeconomic headwinds.”
