Around 44% housing units under Rs 3.5mn unsold in India

Leading independent global property consultants – Knight Frank India Pvt. Ltd. announced the launch of their database product “eyestate” that is jointly developed by Knight Frank Research and Indicus Analytics, India's leading economics research firm. The product gives information and analysis of the residential, commercial and retail real estate market across the seven major metropolitan regions namely Mumbai, the National Capital Region, Kolkata, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Pune and Chennai.

 

eyestate, a comprehensive database solution of the real estate landscape of major Indian metropolitan regions has proved to be a myth buster. Results show that 28% of the properties under construction within the 7 urban centres cater to households looking for homes within the INR. 3.5 mn. category. This product caters to the needs of approximately 80% of urban households. Contemporary market belief would lead us to assume that all or most of this product would be absorbed as it is within the affordability criteria, but this is not the case. An astonishingly high 44% of these housing units are unsold today.
