All cities, except Chennai, registered a growth in sales, with Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR) and Pune accounting for nearly half of the total volume.

The quarterly report tracks eight major housing markets, including Delhi-NCR, MMR, Chennai, Kolkata, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Pune, and Ahmedabad.

The data of the housing market includes sales of apartments and villas. Delhi-NCR includes the micro markets of Gurugram, Greater Noida, Noida, Faridabad and Ghaziabad. The MMR includes Mumbai, Thane and Navi Mumbai.

Vikas Wadhawan, CFO, REA India and business head, PropTiger.com, said, “The housing markets in the top eight cities continue to gain momentum. The strong demand is bolstered by positive consumer sentiment.”

Wadhawan noted factors like pent-up demand, increased disposable income, stable interest rates, and renewed investor demand as key drivers of the sales growth.
