Mumbai_Skyline1

The share of Mumbai and Pune in overall sales of top nine cities during the second quarter of this calendar year increased from 46 per cent to 51 per cent over last year, says a latest report by PropTiger.com. A significant finding of the report is that more than 30 per cent of these sales were under Rs.25 lakh budget segment. One of the key contributors to this growth, according to a top company official, is the effective implementation of RERA in Maharashtra.

New launches during Q2 (April to June 2018) across top nine cities declined 20 per cent over Q2 last year whereas sales were within 2 per cent of last year, according to the findings of PropTiger.com ‘Realty Decoded Report’.

The report said the quarter did not witness many new launches as developers are waiting for the festive season. It said large cities like Mumbai and Pune had a drop in new launches whereas markets such as Noida, Bengaluru, Hyderabad and Chennai experienced an increase.

“One of the key contributors to this growth is effective implementation of RERA in Maharashtra. This is a lesson for other states as well who are struggling to revive real estate industry. ”

The last year’s Q2, said the report, was an aberration as developers advanced their launches to avoid approvals under RERA regime.
