The Financial Express reported that the Indian real estate market is steadily recovering, as experts are projecting a 15 percent CAGR growth, which will contribute 13 percent to the country’s GDP by 2025.

Real estate consultancy Knight Frank India revealed that Q1 2022 saw housing sales hit a four-year high of 78,627 units, which was a nine-percent year-on-year (YoY) growth, reported Mint.

Mumbai led sales from January to March with 21,548 units. On the other hand, the Delhi NCR recorded the highest YoY growth in new home sales during the period, increasing by 123 percent to 15,019 units. It is the second-largest market in terms of growth by volume.

The third-largest market on the list, Bengaluru, registered 34 percent YoY growth in Q1, with 13,663 new unit sales while Ahmedabad grew 34 percent YoY with 4,105 units.

Shishir Baijal, chairman and managing director, Knight Frank India attributed the favourable environment for homebuyers to the best affordability levels, healthy wage growth, and low interest rates.

As a result of healthy and sustained homebuyer activity, price increases will be gradual, and developers will be able to weather the rising prices of basic inputs such as cement and steel.
