The second home market in the country is poised to witness high traction in the near term. Almost 70% of respondents want to invest in a second home priced at INR 2 crore or less, according to a survey carried out by Savills India, a global property consultancy firm amongst prospective homebuyers.
The survey reveals that 57- 70% of the respondents want to buy a second home within 2 years. This short-term commitment of less than 2 years is evident not only in the domestic market, but also in the preferred offshore destinations. When compared maximum preference of investments is within India in a horizon of less than 6 months.
Almost 80% of potential second homebuyers intend to hold the properties for more than 5 years. As the ticket size of the property increases, so does the intended investment period reflecting an intent to attain capital appreciation and rental return before eventual exit from the cherished property.
Savills India’s research analysed responses on critical parameters that buyers consider while purchasing a second home and these include – owning a second home at a holiday destination, spacious and larger floor space, health and wellness factor, connectivity from home city, internet infrastructure and an eventual return on investment.
The survey further highlights that almost 60% of the respondents would like to invest in a second home within the security of a gated community that offers a sense of security and allows home owners to enjoy facilities such as swimming pool, gymnasium, health centre and sporting amenities, without having to worry about the maintenance of such provisions on a regular basis.
“The Second Homes market appears to be on a gradual upswing. Unlike earlier, when capital appreciation and rental incomes were the governing criteria, an additional dimension of a safe home away from pandemic hotspots appears to have become a key consideration. Rental yields in popular second home destinations are reported to be witnessing an increasing trend. Additionally, technology too has played a vital role in strengthening the investor confidence.” said Ms Shveta Jain, MD, Residential Services Savills India
