Indian real estate sector to recover faster than expected


The demand for residential property is increasing as is evident from the increasing inquiries and sales conversions over the past few months. The buyers are giving priority to housing especially the projects that have all the facilities that can keep them safer. In spite of all the darkness that sector witnessed during the lockdown, it is returning back with a bang. Besides, maximum investors got enough time to plan during the lockdown and realize the potential of real estate assets.

It is important to understand the downfall, recovery, and growth patterns of the residential segment market in the past decade. The lockdown happened just when the residential market was in demand for the two successive years and then it came to a near standstill for a few months during the lockdown. However, realtors remained in touch with the end-users after realizing the enhanced need of the people to have a property of their own. Going forward, the maximum number of end-users, as well as investors, will prefer homes that take care of the social distancing in addition to providing financial security.

End-users as well as investors are also showing readiness to pay a premium for homes that would include a wellness idea. The coming time will require constant policy support and economic stabilization so that the market remains upbeat.

Besides, to ensure the operations in a smooth manner as well as to help the customers, realtors are also coming up with various schemes and easy modes of payment methods.”

But now it has been observed that there is a good query to sales conversion ratio, which is a positive sign for the sector.”
