The Indian housing market is on track to break records in 2023, with sales projected to surpass Rs 4.5 lakh crore. The surge represents a 38 per cent increase over the total sales value of Rs 3.27 lakh crore in 2022, according to ANAROCK.

In the first nine months of 2023, residential properties worth Rs 3.49 lakh crore have already been sold across the top 7 cities, marking a 7 per cent increase compared to the entire sales value of 2022. Projections for the ongoing fourth quarter suggest an additional Rs 1 lakh crore in housing inventory sales, pushing the overall sales value beyond the Rs 4.5 lakh crore threshold.

Despite a marginal decrease in the number of units sold (3.49 lakh units in 9 months 2023 compared to 3.65 lakh units in 2022), the surge in sales value underscores heightened demand for high-value homes in 2023.

2023 vs 2022: Quarterly growth trends

Anuj Puri, Chairperson, ANAROCK Group, notes, "The housing sales value in 9 months 2023 exceeding that of the whole of 2022 reflects the increased demand for premium luxury homes this year." Puri acknowledges the challenges in drawing an accurate year-on-year comparison due to the 8 to 18 per cent rise in average prices in the top cities during the same period.

Analysing the quarterly trends, Puri observes consistent growth throughout 2023, with each quarter witnessing increased sales values.  Comparing the sales values from January to September in 2022 and 2023 reveals a 44 per cent jump, reaching approximately Rs 3,48,776 crore in 2023 compared to Rs 2,43,027 crore in 2022. Pune leads with a 96 per cent yearly increase, followed by Chennai with a 45 per cent jump, and Hyderabad with a 43 per cent surge.
