Jun 18, 2024 10:46 PM IST

The average rental hike was at 2-4% in Q2 2024 compared to 4-9% in Q1 2024; Bengaluru’s Whitefield and Noida’s Sector 150 saw the highest rental growth at 4%

With more housing supply hitting the top seven cities' markets, overheated housing rents are stabilizing. Residential rentals in key micro markets across top cities witnessed quarterly growth of 2-4% in Q2 2024 compared to 4-9% in Q1 2024, data shared by Anarock shows.

Real estate consultant Anarock said that the growth in housing rents across the top seven cities - Delhi-NCR, Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR), Chennai, Kolkata, Pune, Hyderabad and Bengaluru - has moderated because of improvement in housing supply. 

With more new supply entering the markets, a highly speculative residential rental spike is coming to a halt. “ANAROCK data indicates that approximately 5,31,470 units are expected to be completed in 2024 across the top 7 cities, provided there are no delivery delays,” says Santhosh Kumar. “In 2023, approximately 4,35,045 units were completed in these cities.”

Bengaluru’s Whitefield and Noida’s Sector 150 witnessed the highest 4% quarterly rental growth each in Q2 2024 against the preceding quarter. MMR is expected to see approximately 1.61 lakh units completed in 2024 and 1.44 lakh units in NCR.

“In India, the second quarter of most years typically sees rents increase more than in other quarters due to the commencement of the new academic year and the employment of new staff. This year, declining rental value growth coincides with substantial new housing supply entering these markets,” said Santhosh Kumar, vice chairman, ANAROCK Group.

The top 7 cities are set to deliver approximately 5.31 lakh new units in 2024 while in 2023, these cities saw approximately 4.35 lakh units hit their markets. This denotes a 22% annual supply increase this year if delivery schedules remain on track.

Average rents for a standard 1,000 sq.ft. 2 BHK in Bengaluru’s Whitefield rose by 4% – from 32,500 per month in Q1 2024 to 35,000 per month in Q2 2024 to date. In Q1 2024, the quarterly jump against Q4 2023 was double at 8%. Bengaluru, the key rental hub with the highest rental value hikes, will see approximately 51,685 units delivered in 2024, against approximately 52,565 units in 2023.
