People want bigger homes and reopening offices, schools hasn’t altered this trend
- Demand for 3BHK homes rose by 13% in the last two years of Covid-19 pandemic.
- The demand share for 4BHKs also rose from 2% in the pre-Covid survey to 7% now.
- Bangalore and Chennai have the highest demand for 3BHK homes with 51% and 48% respondents voting, as per the survey.
AdvertisementThe Covid-19 pandemic has altered consumer preferences and one of them is yearning for space in their homes. As an effect, the demand for 3BHK homes has outstripped the demand for 2BHKs in metro cities, said a report by real estate services firm Anarock.
As many as 44% people said they want 3BHK homes while 38% are looking for 2BHK homes, as per CII-ANAROCK Consumer Sentiment survey-H1 2022.
"The pandemic effect on home sizes continues - larger spaces in non-core urban areas remain in higher demand across the top cities. The reopening of offices and schools has changed little about this trend - as the increasing demand for the 3BHK configuration over 2BHKs vouch safes,” said Anuj Puri, chairman of Anarock group.
The growth demand for 3BHKs over the last three years is consistent. It was at 31% in 2019; which grew to 40% in 2021; and to 44% in 2022. The demand share for 4BHKs has also risen – from 2% in the pre-Covid survey to 7% now.
