99ACRES' OUTLOOK

Chennai’s real estate market, in Apr-Jun 2021, remained slow on the back of meagre sales volume, limited new residential supply, economic instability and new governance. While COVID-19 induced lockdown halted a majority of construction activities in the city, the non-availability of migrant labourers and rising raw material prices in the city impacted the overall construction cycle in the studied period. In addition to the labour shortage, liquidity constraints and poor home buying sentiment remained the prime challenges for the developer community. Resultantly, as many as 1,590 units were sold in April-June 2021 as against 480 units in the corresponding period in 2020. Housing sales fell by over 40 percent, QoQ, from 2,850 units in Jan-Mar 2021.

Home buyers’ affinity for projects nearing completion remained intact, especially for units priced below Rs 40 lakh. Areas along Old Mahabalipuram Road, East Coast Road and Pallavaram Thoraipakkam Road posted maximum enquiries in the quarter.

The city currently sits on around 35,000 unsold housing units, majority of which belong to the luxury segment. With several proposed and in-pipeline infrastructure projects, the pace of inventory offtake is expected to witness growth. Some of these projects include the proposed metro corridors in Phase-2 (Corridor-3), Chennai-Bengaluru Industrial Corridor (CBIC), and the proposed second commercial airport at Parandur.
