South India Real Estate Surges: K-RERA Impact, CREDAI Policies and Puravankara shape positive outlook

The surge is empowered by new buyers, transparent markets, and commercial space demand reports Surfaces Reporter (SR)

The real estate sector in South India has experienced a significant boost due to the growing demand for commercial spaces in Tier-II cities, the emergence of a new class of home buyers, and greater transparency in the market. This combination has led to a surge in real estate development in the state. A recent home buyer on the condition of anonymity noted that the market is now open, with more quality players and transparent transactions, instilling confidence in buyers. The uncertainties posed by the pandemic have subsided, and the real estate business is bouncing back.

Kerala Real Estate Regulatory Authority (K-RERA) Chairman P.H. Kurien highlighted the consistent increase in the number of new projects registered with the regulator, particularly in Thiruvananthapuram and Kochi. The emergence of local buyers capable of investing in homes with bank loan support has possibly accelerated the pace of urbanization in the state. The latest data from K-RERA revealed a significant increase in the number of new projects registered in 2023, with a total of 211 projects registered, including a high number of registrations in the residential apartment segment.
