Hyderabad’s residential demand has witnessed a significant increase due to rising employment opportunities and positive market outlook, which were just marginally affected by policy changes including DeMo, RERA and GST.
ANAROCK Property Consultants’ report ‘Hyderabad: The Bright Spot in Indian Real Estate’ analyzes the city’s major real estate trends and highlights that the city has emerged as one of the most sought-after residential destinations in the country. The city is experiencing a phenomenal spurt in residential real estate activity with appreciating capital values and increase in retail and office space absorption from 2014 to 2018. Policy support from local government to strengthen the socio-economic indicators has largely attracted investments post-2014.
- Absorption in Hyderabad increased by 21% in 2017 as against the previous year due to positive market sentiments coupled with growing IT work force mainly in the western zone. The absorption in Q1 2018 is at par with the new supply being pumped into the market.
- The unsold inventory in the city has been declining gradually since 2017. In fact, the city scores far better than many other metros in terms of unsold stock pile-up situation.
- Approximately 74,000 units have been launched in Hyderabad in the last 5 years, of which nearly 71% (~52,000 units) came in the west zone.
The total unsold stock in Hyderabad in Q2 2016 stood at 35,560 units, which reduced by nearly 14% in the corresponding quarter in 2017. The unsold stock further reduced by 13% in Q2 2018 as against the same period in 2017. In a span of 2 years, the total unsold stock in Hyderabad reduced by nearly 29%.
