NCR realty growth trajectory all set to emulate early‐90s, 2004‐05 path: Report 

Delhi, 5th December, 2022: A close look at this year’s festive trends in Delhi‐NCR indicate a sharp V‐shaped recovery for real estate in Delhi‐NCR, says a report by RISE Infraventures. On the back of largely three key developments (end‐user taking over the market, pandemic‐induced lifestyle changes and the sales numbers in the festive this year), the real estate market which has already touched the 2014 peak, is all set to emulate the early 90s and the 2004‐05 growth trajectory, the report further adds.

While the pre‐pandemic market saw investors playing a dominant role, post‐pandemic sentiment has brought back the change in the trend with the end‐users taking the grip over the market right back. 

 “The sharp V‐shaped recovery that Delhi‐NCR market is witnessing indicates good times ahead for Real Estate sector. The near‐total end‐user dominance in the RE market is going to once again kick- off the aggressive, and very welcome, growth cycles seen in the past. The pandemic‐induced slow down seems to be a thing of the past and the Delhi‐NCR market seems to be readying to ride the tail‐winds on to a new high,” said Vishesh Prakash, R&R by RISE Infra.

The pandemic has also changed the profile of the end‐user. With concerns like work‐life balance, well‐being and changing world of work coming to the forefront for professionals and service class alike, there are newer concerns that are impacting the decision of home buyers now. This represents a major shift in the mind‐set of homebuyers, which is also largely responsible for the rapidly increasing numbers of end users deciding to buy or upgrade their homes, and thereby driving the growth.
