Sharp Uptick in India in residential property prices in Q1 2023: Report

May 2, 2023 – According to a recent report by, housing prices in India have surged during the first quarter of 2023 with the average price rise across all the major realty markets being close to 7% YoY.

The report indicates that all the markets covered in the analysis showed an upward movement in average rates of new homes.

The report highlights that the average rate of properties in Bengaluru saw a 10% appreciation in the past one year, making it the market with the sharpest uptrend in property prices. Pune and Ahmedabad were close behind this southern market in terms of price increase, with these markets witnessing an 8% and 7% rise in their average property rates, respectively. 

Vikas Wadhawan, Group CFO,, &, said,” Real estate has consistently been one of the best-performing asset classes over the long term, and with prices expected to go up further, it might be a good time for fence-sitters to take the jump and buy their dream home. Having said that, one needs to keep in mind that buying a home is the most expensive purchase decision a family typically makes. So, it is important to weigh all the pros and cons carefully before making a final decision.” 

The report highlights that the cost of buying a house in India continues to rise due to several factors, including the continuous rise in the cost of raw materials and labour, the growing demand for homes post-COVID, and the cessation of government-funded subsidy schemes in March this year. 

Furthermore, while the Reserve Bank of India has taken a pause in hiking rates for now, inflation remains a concern, and the central bank may increase the benchmark lending rate in the next cycle, which could further amplify costs for the buyer because of increased borrowing costs on home loans. 


Discussing buying trends, Ankita Sood, Head of Research,, & said: “Property prices in Indian cities have been growing at a fast pace of 6-7% since the past year with a renewed thrust on homeownership. Apart from a rise in input costs, limited supply of the right product & ready to move in projects for the end-user have led to an upward push in prices.”

The report indicates that the average price per square foot in cities such as Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Delhi NCR, Kolkata, and Pune has witnessed a significant increase.
