South India’s relatively low decline of unsold inventory is attributable to a massive new launch rate in Hyderabad, most notably over the last two years. The city saw its housing stock almost quadruple in the last 5 years. Bengaluru saw unsold inventory decline by 50% in this period.

In the West, MMR and Pune saw unsold stock decline by 8% in the last five years - from approximately 3.13 lakh units in Q1 2018 to approximately 2.90 lakh units in Q1 2024.

Delhi-NCR's new housing supply under control

"What really worked for the NCR market was developers’ determination to keep new supply additions under control. ANAROCK data indicates that NCR witnessed total new supply of approximately 1.81 lakh units between Q1 2018 to Q1 2024. In contrast, the southern and western markets saw significantly higher new supply additions of approximately 6.07 lakh units and 8.42 lakh units respectively," said Santhosh Kumar, Vice Chairman - ANAROCK Group.

“NCR's upbeat performance also reflects renewed buyer confidence in the region," he said, adding "RERA, GST and the intervention of AIFs like the SWAMIH fund have played a major role in this sentiment revival. As a result, more leading and listed players have increased supply in the region."

Of the total unsold inventory in NCR, Gurugram currently has the maximum stock of approx. 33,326 units - a 37% decrease in the last five years. Greater Noida is next with approximately 18,668 units lying unsold as of Q1 2024-end. However, Greater Noida reduced its stock by a whopping 70% since Q1 2018. Ghaziabad saw its unsold stock decline to approximately 11,011 units in Q1 2024, from approximately 37,005 units in Q1 2018 - a massive 70% five-year decline.
