Real Estate Rates 2022: Premium House Prices Sharply Rise In Mumbai, Bengaluru & Delhi-NCR, Says Survey

Demand for rental properties has also increased as more people return to work locations, the study finds.

Premium residential property prices have spiked considerably in Mumbai, Bengaluru, Delhi, Gurugram, and Noida in 2022, real estate consultant Savills India said in a report.

Luxury home prices in top cities and metropolitan regions rose as the Reserve Bank of India (RBI ) raised its repo rates, the benchmark lending rates, by 225 bps this year to curb high inflation, the report said.

The survey covered the residential markets of Mumbai, Bengaluru, Delhi, Gurugram, and Noida.

“In the backdrop of a hybrid work model, end-users are considering larger homes in residential complexes offering superior facilities,” the report said, noting that demand for rental homes has increased “as professionals returned to their work locations”.

Shveta Jain, managing director of residential services at Savills India, said, “Investor interest was also prominent for leisure locations offering both rental and capital appreciation opportunities.”

Jain said developers have been making a beeline for land parcels measuring 2,000 square metres and three acres in places like Goa, Alibaug, Kasauli, etc., to capitalise on the demand for second homes. The demand spike has led to “a paucity of supply and increase in values for clear title land parcels”.

Under-construction projects in top cities saw higher price appreciation than completed projects. It reflects buyers ’ preference for new launches with better amenities and spacious units. Preference for quality homes will likely keep the demand in the premium segment steady in 2023.
