“The fact that the housing sales value in 9M 2023 exceeded that of the whole of entire 2022 reflects the increased demand for premium luxury homes this year. This, along with the fact that average prices in the top cities rose by anywhere between 8-18% this year, makes an apple-to-apple comparison of annual sales values challenging,” said Anuj Puri, Chairman - ANAROCK Group.

“If we look at the quarter-on-quarter sales values in 2023, each quarter saw consistent growth and overall sales value has already breached the 1 lakh crore mark," says Puri.

"In Q1 2023, homes worth 1,12,976 crore were sold in the top 7 cities, Q2 2023 saw a jump of 1%, and then a further jump of 8% in Q3 2023. Sales in the ongoing festive quarter have been robust across these markets and the concluding quarter of 2023 will be no different. Thus, we expect the overall housing sales value to cross 4.5 lakh crore by 2023-end.”
