Monday, 27 August 2018

The recently implemented economic and regulatory reforms, like GST and RERA, have hugely benefited the real estate sector in India. They have played an instrumental rule in streamlining the processes of construction, delivery and sales, and have overall brought in a greater level of transparency and efficiency into the sector.

A significant change that can be observed in the real estate sector is that the number of projects in terms of new housing launches has increased by a whopping 50 per cent in Q2 2018, as compared with the first quarter. The largest contributor in terms of supply has been the affordable housing segment and the supply here has increased by a staggering 100 per cent. The affordable housing sector has been the largest and most significant contributor in the real estate surge in Q2 2018.

Heres an overview of the surge in housing launches in Q2 2018:

  • There were around 50,100 new housing units launched between the top 7 cities (NCR, MMR, Chennai, Bengaluru, Pune, Kolkata and Hyderabad) in Q2 2018. This was a major surge compared with Q1 2018, during which only 33,400 new units were launched across these cities.
