Mumbai, 28 June 2023: Despite spiraling home loan rates in the recent past and global economic headwinds including layoffs by several large and small corporates, the bull run in the Indian housing market continued in the second quarter of the year.

It continues to be on a roll with the momentum remaining strong even in the second quarter of 2023. Housing sales in the top 7 cities broke the previous high record of Q1 2023 and stood at more than 1.15 lakh units in Q2 2023. Pune and MMR were the only two cities to see a quarterly rise in housing sales – of 4% and 10% respectively while other cities saw some dip. But on a yearly basis, most top 7 cities saw a significant jump in housing sales.”
