AdvertisementThe Indian real estate market seems to be growing in volumes and value as well. According to a new report by Anarock, FY23 created a new record of highest sales volume across the top seven cities. As many as 3.79 lakh units were sold in the period — 36% higher than the previous year.

Luxury and tech in high demand
Luxury housing market also continued to boom. The increase in both sales volume and prices has led to remarkable growth in the value of the units sold. Additionally, there has been a notable surge in the sales of luxury housing — i.e units priced above ₹1.5 crore, in the top seven cities.
“Luxury real estate has experienced a notable surge in demand following the pandemic as homebuyers have reconsidered their housing preferences. In addition to seeking larger spaces, there is now a higher demand for technologically advanced homes that offer convenience and a sense of pride in ownership,” the report said.
Metropolitan regions like MMR, National Capital Region (NCR), and Bengaluru have been at the forefront of this trend, but Pune is emerging as another city to watch.
Pune has not only witnessed the highest growth in terms of value but has also captured a 9% share of the luxury housing market, a significant increase from previous years.
“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 Anuj Puri, chairman of Anarock group.
The last quarter of the fiscal saw a significant uptick in luxury housing demand. This was after the Union Budget 2023-24 revised capital gains tax and limits the benefit to ₹10 crore after the end of the preceding fiscal year. This led to a high sales of qualifying properties.
