Insite Report Oct-Dec 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 Oct-Dec 2018.




While buyer sentiment improved manifold, sales were impacted by compliance related challenges. Homebuyers in Kolkata, for instance, waited for clarity over HIRA, and those in Delhi NCR snubbed the under-construction segment due to uncertainty over GST rates. Bangalore, Mumbai, Pune and Hyderabad continued displaying signs of realty revival.


Barring Delhi NCR and Kolkata, where property prices maintained status quo, all metros registered an upward revision in property prices with Hyderabad leading the charts with a two percent uptick, QoQ. The legacy built-up of inventory in Delhi NCR is likely to keep prices under check in the quarters to come. Other metro cities may see modest price hike.


The growth of the rental market continued unabatedly in Oct-Dec 2018. The trend is likely to continue until the capital market undergoes a complete revival. With Kolkata in the lead, all metro cities reported an uptick in average rental ‘asks’ by 2-4 percent, except Delhi NCR where average rentals increased by a modest one percent due to oversupply of residential units.


Though the absorption of residential units dipped, QoQ, the reduction in the inventory pile-up across cities spelt good news. New projects, although restricted, remained inclined towards affordable housing segments, accounting for over 40 percent of the total new inventory. While the country boasts of over 34,800 RERA-approved projects, the pace of registration remained a concern.
