Premium Housing Price Rise Continues in Mumbai, Bengaluru, Delhi-NCR: Savills    

December 23, 2023: The premium residential market in major cities is seeing notable price appreciation, led by Gurugram with rise up to 45% followed by NOIDA, according to the latest report by Savills India, a global property consulting firm. While a variety of factors is driving this confidence, the continued price movement serves as evidence of a strong demand base, reflecting the robust sentiment in the market.

Completed projects in most of these cities have witnessed higher appreciation in capital values as compared to under-construction projects. This preference could be influenced by factors such as reduced uncertainty, immediate availability for use, and the ability to assess the actual quality and features of the property. As the residential market gains momentum and capital values experience a surge in recent months, buyers are motivated to make purchasing decisions, anticipating a continued strengthening of property prices. 

This sentiment is further supported by the recent decision of the Reserve Bank of India’s Monetary Policy Committee to maintain interest rates unchanged for a fifth consecutive time. This strategic move is anticipated to provide a significant boost to consumption in the residential segment, encouraging increased investment and activity in the residential market.

The report further delves into the key trends these cities witnessed through the year –
