The Luxury Homes in Bengaluru and Pune Are Seeing Highest NRI Demand Post-COVID-19 - ANAROCK Latest Survey

Non-Resident Indians (NRIs) seem to be interested in investing in luxury homes post-COVID-19. The majority of them (73% ) now prefer properties priced between Rs 90 lakh to Rs 2.5 cr, as per ANAROCK’s latest consumer survey. In the pre-COVID survey (H2 2019), just 41% preferred properties within this price bracket- most favoured affordable and mid-segment homes. 3 and 4 BHK options currently top their wish-list. SURFACES REPORTER (SR) is sharing the reasons that have made the NRI’s to invest in luxury homes.

According to the ANAROCK survey- rising instances of delays and consumer activism in the last few years had impacted the home sales from this segment.  Bengaluru is the preferable investment city for 24% of NRI respondents, followed by Pune with a 19% share. Collectively, these two cities saw approx. 48,370 homes sold in 2020 - accounting for a 35% sales share among the top 7 cities.

 “The COVID-19 pandemic has increased NRIs' emotional association of long-term security with physical assets. 63% of the polled NRIs state this as their reason for buying homes in India now. They are also driven by the uncertainties posed by COVID-19. Luxury properties have emerged as a hot favourite with NRIs because of the depreciating rupee value translating into greater buying power, coupled with ongoing developer discounts and offers. A majority of NRIs is buying for end-use, not as investments,” said Prashant Thakur, Director & Head - Research, ANAROCK Property Consultants.

The survey clears that 67% NRIs are looking for ready-to-move-in options. After analysing  the overall survey trends (including NRIs and resident Indians), it is also apparent that just 29% preferred to buy RTM homes, with another 27% respondents preferring under-construction properties that will be delivered within a year.
