Housing sales stood at 15,590 units in Gurugram during 2021 calendar year.
Overall, the housing sales in Delhi-NCR rose 59 per cent to 63,712 units in 2022, from 40,053 units in the previous year.
Among the other key micro markets of Delhi-NCR, property consultant Anarock data showed that housing sales in Noida increased by 16 per cent to 6,360 units during 2022 calendar year from 5,460 units in the previous year.

Commenting on Gurugram market, property brokerage firm Inframantra founder Shiwang Suraj said, "The housing sales in Gurugram have been consistently breaking all previous records, especially in luxury and mid-income housing segment. Housing sales in 2022 performed exceedingly well even with higher home loan borrowing rates as new launches were limited which led to demand exceeding supply." Going ahead, Suraj said this trend is expected to continue in 2023 with a possible easing of interest rates in the later part of the year.
