Delhi-NCR developers remained cautious and restricted new supply despite robust sales as unsold stock in the region declined 16 percent year on year to 1,41,240 units as of the end of second quarter this year, Anarock Research said.

Merely 4,070 units were launched in Delhi-NCR in the second quarter.

As per Anarock data, overall new housing supply in Delhi-NCR declined 56 percent on a quarterly basis to nearly 4,070 units as of the second quarter.

NCR’s inventory overhang stood at 80 months as of the second quarter last year, which reduced to 27 months in the quarter under review. Since the first quarter of 2015, the second quarter this year has seen the lowest inventory overhang in Delhi-NCR, indicating a very favourable residential market scenario in a very long time, it noted.

“Inventory overhang basically reflects the sales velocity at a given time,” says Prashant Thakur, senior director and head – research, Anarock Group.

“Inventory measured in months indicates the number of months it will take for the current unsold housing stock on the market to sell at the current absorption rate,” he said.

With remarkable restraint in this previously highly speculative market which saw an unrealistically high number of projects launched in earlier years, developers in Delhi-NCR have restricted their new supply despite robust sales.

Of the total unsold inventory in NCR, Gurugram currently has the utmost stock of around 59,120 units, which decreased by 7% on quarterly basis. Greater Noida has more than 28,875 unsold units as of the end of second quarter this year, and reduced its stock by 8% on a quarterly basis, it said.

Ghaziabad saw its unsold stock 5% sequential decline to 17,990 units in the second quarter this year. Noida had approximately 12,150 units of unsold stock by the end of the quarter in review, a sequential decline of 12%, the report said.

Delhi, Faridabad and Bhiwadi together had approximately 23,100 unsold units by the end of the second quarter this year – a 6% sequential decline.
