Larger sized home sales jump in India as WFH continues in Q1 2021: PropEquity Study


New Delhi: In a report released by PropEquity, India’s leading real estate data, research and analytics firm, home sales or absorption of 3 BHK (and above) units rose by 19% across top 7 cities in India in the first quarter of 2021 to 30,169 units versus 25,307 units in Q1 2020.
Many of the working population in India are now looking to get larger homes as Work from Home (WFH) is still a recommended suggestion by the central and state governments to follow for corporates.
The new supply or launches of housing units decreased by 30% in the same period to 20,848 in Q1 2021 units from Q1 2020 at 29,836 units as developers were clearing earlier stock and resizing home offerings.
Bengaluru, Chennai, Hyderabad, MMR, NCR & Pune are the cities where home sales witnessed a growth in Q1 2021 versus Q1 2020 at 10%, 43%, 14%, 54%, 13% and 34% respectively. Only Kolkata witnessed a downfall of 12% in home sales during the same period.
“This trend of looking to buy larger homes will continue in India as complete vaccination of the eligible Indian population is still some time away. There is also expectation of the third COVID wave, which effectively means that WFH is here to stay. We believe the the worst in terms of the latest COVID wave is behind us and normal real estate transaction will bounce back in a gradual manner,” Mr. Samir Jasuja, founder and managing director at PropEquity said.
