A. Industry Structure and Development:

2022 has been the year of resilience for the Indian real estate industry. Despite the consistent global headwinds, rising domestic inflation, and rate hikes by RBI, the real estate market continued to sustain positively. With several emerging trends, the industry successfully thrived. And the momentum will be higher following this year too. The Q1 saw positive sales in top markets, and the number of new launches is still increasing. Properties in MMR and Pune have seen price appreciation despite steady sales growth. The housing demand remains undeterred despite increasing prices.

Homebuyer preferences have evolved to a larger extent. Millennials are majorly contributing to the upscaled housing demand. Modern homebuyers are perceiving property as a vital asset investment rather than just a shelter. Green and smart societies are overpowering in the market. Larger homes, big projects with expansive spaces, sustainability compliances, working spaces, amenities, etc., have become popular characteristics of the residential market in India. The demand for spacious and luxury homes have substantially increased. People are willing to pay more to get an upgraded lifestyle in the best location.

Moreover, several other factors have been favourable to the growth of real estate. The Union Budget assisted in bolstering the housing demand. The central and state governments proactive initiatives to stimulate infrastructural development drive housing sales. Homebuyers have become insightful regarding the importance of robust infrastructure in the price appreciation of property. The announcement of the Urban Infrastructure Development Fund with an investment of 10,000 crore in the Union Budget was a pivotal push for infrastructure projects in the country. This year, RBI kept the repo rate unchanged, providing relief to investors. Industry experts are assuming the rates to be the same throughout the year. Moreover, the increased income cap in the PMAY scheme will support homebuyers, thereby accelerating the housing demand.
