The property consultant said that the city recorded 10-year best property sale registrations of 8,576 units in October 2021, up 8 per cent from the same month last year.
“…At the ongoing registrations rate, November is likely to mark a cumulative 1 lakh units for the year 2021,” it said in a statement.
Shishir Baijal, Chairman and Managing Director, Knight Frank India, said that the COVID pandemic has fuelled the concept of home ownership.
“The ongoing festivities have complemented the already positive outlook that home buyers had exuded over the past year or so. The same is reflecting on the property registration numbers, wherein we are seeing best levels in consequent months of September and October,” he said.
The improved sense on economic environment and the rapid COVID vaccination coverage across the country has lent confidence to homebuyers, Baijal said.
“Hence, even while the government stamp duty incentive has been rolled back, a combination of positive factors like multi decade low home loan interest rate, affordable property prices, and developer offerings on new products and payment flexibility has pushed fence sitters too to take the purchase decision sooner than later,” he observed.
