The nine cities profiled included Delhi-NCR, Bengaluru, Chennai, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Mumbai, Navi Mumbai, Pune and Thane..

New housing unit launches in the top 9 tier-1 cities are expected to dip by 13% on a year-on-year basis from 1,11,657 launches in Q2, 2033 to 97,331 in Q2 2024 and sales are expected to go down by two percent from 1,21,856 in Q2 2023 to 1,19,901 in Q2 2024, according to the report. The Delhi-NCR real estate market has emerged as the best performer in terms of launches and sales.

According to the report, cities like Hyderabad and Pune may experience a notable decline, with new launches in Hyderabad decreasing by 36% Year-on-Year while Pune's new launches may dip by 47%. However, Delhi-NCR may see 95% y-o-y increase in new launches, rising from 5,708 units in Q2, 2023 to 11,118 units in Q2, 2024.

PropEquity released the housing sales data for April-June, 10 days before the end of the quarter.

On a Quarter on Quarter (Q-o-Q) basis, the launches witnessed a seven percent decline with 97,331 units getting launched in Q2 2024 as compared to 1,04,391 units in Q1 2024.

Quarterly sales were down 18% to 1,19,901 units in Q2 2024 compared to the previous quarter which stood at 1,46,1947 units, the report said.

PropEquity Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer Samir Jasuja said that while the January-March period was an extraordinary quarter with the highest absorption/ sales ever witnessed in India. The April-June quarter is usually the slowest quarter compared to other quarters with respect to supply and absorption/sales.

Also, the reason for the supply coming down marginally was because Q2 2024 is an election quarter and some developers held back their launches during the time, he said.
