Major Highlights

  • Delhi NCR property market continued its snail-paced trajectory from Jan-Mar 2015 to Apr-Jun 2015 with an insignificant growth of 1 per cent in property prices.
  • While frequent legal conflicts resulted in subdued buyer sentiment, a demand-supply mismatch gave developers a run for their money.
  • Prices soared despite a huge inventory pile-up of 1.70 lakh units recorded till Apr- Jun 2015.
  • The expansion of the Delhi metro improved sentiments in certain pockets of the market, impacting the rental values more than capital prices.
  • As developers focused on offloading unsold inventory, there was a drop in the number of new launches in the region.
  • The rental market performed better than the capital one due to more office space absorption, particularly in Noida and Gurgaon.

Commenting on the report, Mr Narasimha Jayakumar, Chief Business Officer,, said, Though the market looks grim with snowballing unsold residential inventory, there is an increase in office space absorption by IT/ITeS and ecommerce firms. This is expected to keep the commercial and home rental markets of Noida and Gurgaon upbeat.
