New Delhi, Jan 31 (PTI) Registration of properties in Mumbai city rose 7 per cent year-on-year during this month to 8,694 units on better demand, according to Knight Frank India.
Property consultant Knight Frank India said that Mumbai city (area under BMC jurisdiction) saw property sales registration of 8,694 units in January 2023, contributing over Rs 658 crore to the state revenues. The registration figure is till 12 noon and will increase slightly by end of the day.
Of the total properties registered, 84 per cent were residential while 16 per cent were non-residential properties.
The data pertains to transactions in both primary (fresh sales) and secondary (re-sale) markets of all types of properties -- residential, commercial and others.
However, the registration of properties fell 7 per cent in January when compared to December, which saw 9,367 units registration.
Shishir Baijal, Chairman and Managing Director, Knight Frank India, said, "Despite strong headwinds consumer inclination toward home purchase has driven residential property sales in Mumbai." The demand has persisted despite rising house loan rates, absence of state government concessions, and increases in property price over the past year, he said.
"Maharashtra government continues to be a major beneficiary of demand. While the repo rate is likely to increase soon, we anticipate the positive demand sentiment to largely stay unchanged as Indian economic growth prospects remain strong," Baijal said.
