Fund flows to real estate have dried up: Knight Frank
Knight Frank one of the leading independent global residential and commercial property consultancy, has said that transaction activity in the real estate sector in India remains slack and the prospective
buyers are sitting on the fence in anticipation of price correction.

“The funding avenues exploited earlier seem to have dried-up. For instance, between Q1 FY10 and Q3 FY12, FDI in real estate declined by a drastic 92% and its share in total FDI shrunk from 16.83% to
1.94%. Fate of fund flow through IPOs, QIP and PE is also similar. As a result, all hope is stemmed on revival in sales, which is imminent on either a robust economy or lower property price,” the consultancy firm has stated in its May Report on Economy and Realty.

The real estate sector has over the last few years been adversely affected by high interest rates in the economy as well as lack of buyer interest. Rising prices have also contributed to a stagnating market in the last few months.
