Housing Sales in Top 8 cities up by 51% | Indian Real Estate: 2021 | SURFACES REPORTER Realty Roundup

The residential market continues to see recovery in 2021 and registered a record jump of 51% in the housing sales, Knight Frank says. In its report titled, Indian Real Estate : 2021, the realty knowledge think tank also talks about the slump in office space leasing and the buying behaviour of cities of the country, a report by SURFACES REPORTER (SR).

 A Jump in Housing Sales

According to the report, while the housing sales increased to 232,903 units in 2021 from 154,534 units in 2020, the demand was slightly down to 5 % from 2019 pre-pandemic levels. The same is also 37% lower than the 2011 peak numbers. Showing its resilience towards the ongoing pandemic, the housing sales in the second half of the last year saw the highest volume since the first half of 2016.

However, the office segment continued to show a downward trend due to the adverse impact of second COVID wave and subsequent lockdowns, the gross leasing of office space fell to 38.1 million square feet in 2021, from 39.4 million square feet in the previous year. This is very low as compared to the record 60.6 million square feet achieved in 2019.

Pinning hopes on the stronger market sentiments to aid sales volumes in near future, Knight Frank India CMD Shishir Baijal, said, "Despite the disruptions caused by the pandemic, residential sales momentum increased across the key eight markets of the country due to a plethora of demand stimulants such as lowest home loan rates, government sops and change in attitude."
