Housing sales FY23
  • INR 3.47 lakh crore worth of homes sold in FY23, an annual growth of 48%
  • Pune records the highest growth in value of sales at 77% on year
  • 3.79 lakh units sold in FY23, a 36% increase on year
  • All top 7 cities recorded growth of between 24% to 77% in total value of housing sold

Mumbai, 15 May 2023:  All eyes are on India as it emerges as the world’s most populous country and the fastest-growing nation amidst a global economic slowdown. Even as India’s consumption-driven economy lures businesses of all stripes, the country’s housing market is now the primary growth driver for its real estate sector.

“India’s residential real estate segment continues to show boundless forward momentum, and is setting unprecedented benchmarks,” says Anuj Puri, Chairman – ANAROCK Group. “FY23 created a new record of highest housing sales volume across the top seven cities with approx. 3.79 lakh units sold – 36% higher than the previous year. The year saw residential real estate worth INR 3.47 lakh crore sold – 48% more than in FY22. Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR) led with the largest share in both sales value and volume – 30% of the total units sold during the fiscal were in MMR, with this sold stock valued at INR 1.67 lakh crore, accounting for 48% in sales value share.”

Interestingly, all cities recorded growth of anywhere between 24% to 77% in the total value of housing sold during the year. Pune recorded the highest growth both in terms of sales value and volume.

Luxury Housing Sales Boom Continues FY23

While the rise in sales volume and price increments have driven phenomenal growth in the value of the units sold, there has also been a significant rise in luxury housing (units priced above INR 1.5 Cr) sales across these cities.

“The uptrend in luxury housing is the result of overall improved homeownership sentiment, improved earning potential, and the desire for homes that are future-proofed in terms of size, lifestyle quotient, and resale value growth,” says Puri. “People are willing to pay for these factors, as has been amply vouchsafed by recent record runs on luxury projects by leading developers.”

Luxury real estate has especially picked up after the pandemic caused homebuyers to reimagine their housing choices. Apart from larger space, there is now increased demand for technologically equipped homes that tick all the boxes in terms of a convenience-driven lifestyle and pride of ownership.

MMR, NCR, and Bengaluru have led from the front in terms of luxury housing uptake, but Pune is another city to watch. While it registered the highest growth in value terms, it also recorded a 9% share of the luxury segment, from a negligible share in earlier years.

The last quarter of the fiscal witnessed a significant increase in luxury housing demand, bolstered by Union Budget’s revision of capital gains tax which limits the benefit to INR 10 crores after the end of the preceding fiscal year. This led to a bull-run on qualifying properties.
