Insite Report Jan-Mar 2018


The Insite Report by captures the quarterly capital trends and the annual rental analysis of residential apartments in key real estate markets – Delhi NCR, Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR), Bangalore, Pune, Chennai, Hyderabad, Kolkata and Ahmedabad. In order to assess the prevailing sentiment, the report delves deep into demand and supply of properties across varied budget segments and occupancy stages. While demand is a function of queries received, supply is based on property listings posted on in Jan-Mar 2018.

National Outlook


With the industry getting accustomed to RERA and GST, market was seen regaining normalcy in the first quarter of 2018. Enquiries from fence-sitters resurfaced across metros with a reinstated interest in the under-construction category. Growing transparency and improved processes are expected to fuel this trend in the future.


Despite burgeoning enquires, piling inventory restricted price appreciation, particularly in Delhi NCR. Infrastructural overhauls, a few new launches and incremental ‘asks’ in the resale market, fuelled price growth in some micro-markets of Mumbai, Pune and Bangalore. Affordable pockets will monopolise end-user demand, keeping capital growth in check in the forthcoming quarters.


The obtuseness in the buying market has unabatedly benefitted the rental landscape over multiple quarters. Lease values burgeoned across metros, YoY. Affordable pockets and areas in proximity to transport corridors ruled the roost with maximum traction, pushing rental ‘asks’ further. Speculations of an improvement in the rental values in the ensuing quarters are rife.


Stringent laws under RERA circumscribed new supply; however, progress on project registrations spiked under-construction inventory across cities. The resale market swarmed with properties across budget segments. RERA-approved supply in the affordable segment remained low this quarter. New launches are anticipated to resurface with increased compliance in the months to come.
