Prashant Thakur, Regional Director & Head – Research, ANAROCK Group, says, “Developers have been bullish about the luxury homes segment because of its superlative performance after the pandemic, with overall sales rising steeply across the top 7 cities. Post pandemic, homebuyers have been seeking bigger homes and apart from high-end amenities and good location, luxury housing is primarily defined by generous floor space. ANAROCK’s most recent consumer sentiment survey also reflects this trend. In the pre-Covid edition of the survey (H1 2019), 9% respondents preferred luxury homes priced >INR 1.5 Cr while in the current edition of H1 2023, this share has risen to 16%.”

While luxury housing supply continues its bull-run, affordable housing (homes priced at or under INR 40 lakh) has reduced further to 18% in Q3 2023. Of approx. 1,16,220 affordable homes launched in the quarter, approx. 20,920 were in the affordable category. In the corresponding period in 2018, this segment’s supply share was a whopping 42%. Of approx. 52,120 units launched across the top 7 cities in Q3 2018 across various budget categories, around 21,900 units were in the affordable segment.
