Mumbai’s rank has improved to 8th on Knight Frank’s PIRI’s index in 2023 as compared to 37th rank in 2022 which is a phenomenal jump of 10% year-on-year growth in terms of annual luxury residential price rise.

Delhi is ranked 37th and showcased a rise of 4.2% YoY in 2023 as compared to 77th rank in 2022. Bengaluru stands at 59th rank compared to 63rd in 2022 recording a 2.2% YoY increase in 2023, according to the Index.

Kate Everett-Allen, head of international residential and country research at Knight Frank said, “At the start of 2023, economists were expecting a much weaker outcome across global residential property markets. Stock markets were heading for more pain, inflation was veering out of control and the pandemic-fuelled property boom was set to end in tears as borrowing costs hit 15-year highs in some markets. However, that never happened – we’ve seen a much softer landing in terms of price performance around the world.”

Shishir Baijal, Chairman and Managing Director, Knight Frank India, said “Luxury residential market has shown remarkable growth, as highlighted in Knight Frank’s Wealth Report 2024. Mumbai’s ascent to the 8th rank globally, with a staggering 10% year-on-year increase in luxury residential prices, underscores the city’s enduring appeal. While Mumbai logged into the top 10 league among PIRI 100 cities, Delhi and Bengaluru also demonstrated positive momentum by improving their ranks.”

The outlook for 2024 remains bright as Mumbai with a 5.5% prime price growth forecast, ranks second among the 25 cities globally. “As we navigate the complexities of the global market, India’s emergence as a prime destination for luxury real estate investment is undeniable,” he added.
