Western markets of MMR and Pune are now driving most of the housing sales among the top seven cities. In Q1 2021, of the total 58,300 units sold in the top cities, MMR and Pune comprised a 53% share while NCR comprised just 15% share, ANAROCK data has revealed.
In 2013, of a total of 3.19 lakh units sold across the top 7 cities, the two Maharashtrian cities contributed 33% while NCR comprised the highest share of 37%, it said.
In this period, there were no major variations in overall housing sales share of the primary southern markets Bengaluru, Hyderabad and Chennai whose contribution stayed relatively between 26% to 35%.
NCR continues to pay the price of inordinate project delays and decreased consumer sentiments. The southern markets remained end-user driven and thus maintained an even keel, with developers focusing squarely on consumer demand, it noted.

"From 2013 to date, MMR and Pune have been consistently ramping up y-o-y sales share while Delhi-NCR saw a decelerating trend. The major factors aiding these western markets included active implementation of MahaRERA and timely government interventions to boost housing demand. Simultaneously, developers here put in determined efforts to bridge the demand-supply gap,” said Anuj Puri, Chairman - ANAROCK Property Consultants.
