The real estate market in India – and Pune specifically – will be uncertain in 2023 as layoffs in the global tech and IT sector may affect sales, new project launches and pricing, said Rohit Gera, managing director of Pune-based Gera Developments.

“Regardless of affordability, job insecurity may cause people to put off their decision to make a large purchase like a home,” Gera said at the launch of the company’s Residential Realty Report January 2023 edition. “Layoffs in the tech sector and a corresponding erosion of sentiment would have an impact on the sales of homes.”

Gera said rising interest rates have not had much of an impact on the overall market, and while some sales may have been affected, the salary increase over this period has more than compensated for the rise in interest rates.
