Residential Real Estate Market: New Launches Decline 43% YoY In March

|

The residential real estate market continues to face headwinds with a steep fall of 43% year-on-year in new launches across the country in March. The huge decline came on the back of uncertainty in respect of GST rates and also liquidity crisis, resulting in 6% y-o-y fall on an overall basis to 286 million sq feet in FY 2019.

As per a report by Kotak Institutional Equities, decline in new home launches as well as improving sales sentiment have helped in clearing the unsold inventory, which has fallen on a PAN-India basis by 11% y-o-y to 1,230 million sq ft in March 2019. Further, the outstanding inventory is estimated to be liquidated in 33 months time in comparison to 40 months in March 2018.
