Sales of homes in Ahmedabad stood at 39,046 units in fiscal year 2021-22, a growth of 26% as compared to financial year 2020-2021.

Ahmedabad, Vadodara, Nashik, Gandhi Nagar and Jaipur have taken up the top five ranks among Tier-II cities in growth of residential property market on the back of rapid urbanisation, industrialisation and growth of IT industry, according to a report by PropEquity.

The report, titled “Tier-II: Residential Overview”, states that there has been a remarkable jump in both absorption as well as supply of quality residential properties in various price brackets in these cities. The report has tracked performance of the residential segment of the real estate sector in various Tier-II cities from FY 2017-18 to FY 2021-22.

“The real estate activity in Tier 2 cities is fast catching up with that of Tier 1 cities. Interestingly, Ahmedabad’s residential real estate market size of Rs 83,390 crore has outshone some of the Tier 1 cities like Chennai and Kolkata with market sizes of Rs 52,554 crore and Rs 38,440 crore, respectively, at the end of fiscal year 2021-22. Although it is also interesting to observe that the market share of Tier-I cities is about 4x times the share of Tier-II cities in the last five fiscal years,” said Samir Jasuja, Founder and Managing Director at PropEquity.

“Post COVID lockdowns, Tier 2 cities have been witnessing new job creation at a decent rate and many tech and other sector companies are encouraging work from home for their employees for at least the next couple of years. This has led to scenarios where Tier 2 city housing projects are getting great traction due to their attractive pricing and potential for a higher upside in terms of investments,” said Abhishiekh Andlay, Founder, Andlay Estates.
