Rental Price Growth Drops 50% In Top Cities as Housing Supply Surges: ANAROCK

Mumbai, June 18, 2024: With more supply hitting the top 7 cities’ markets, over-heated housing rents are stabilizing. Latest ANAROCK data shows that average residential rental prices across key markets in these cities saw a 2-4% quarterly rise in Q2 2024 to date over the preceding quarter. Q1 2024 saw rents in these markets rise by between 4-9% quarterly against Q4 2023.

Santhosh Kumar, Vice Chairman – ANAROCK Group, says, “In India, the second quarter of most years typically sees rents increase more than in other quarters due to the commencement of the new academic year and the employment of new staff. This year, declining rental value growth coincides with substantial new housing supply entering these markets.”

The top 7 cities are set to deliver approx. 5.31 lakh new units in 2024 while in 2023, these cities saw approx. 4.35 lakh units hit their markets. This denotes a 22% annual supply increase this year if delivery schedules remain on track.

Average rents for a standard 1,000 sq.ft. 2 BHK in Bengaluru’s Whitefield rose by 4% – from INR 32,500/month in Q1 2024 to INR 35,000/month in Q2 2024 to date. In Q1 2024, the quarterly jump against Q4 2023 was double at 8%.
