Realty Is Facing Prices Fall

The transaction level has gone down drastically in various markets. It has resulted in price fall in realty market. This is also because residential capital values in some micro markets in the metros have shown a negative growth in the last 3 months. After tracking capital values in metros such as Mumbai, Chennai, Bangalore as well as Pune and the National Capital Region (NCR), the result was that either there has been a fall in prices of residential values or they have not increased in the last three months. In fact, places like Gurgaon have seen a down of 15 percent, while the plot rates have come down by 20 percent in Noida. In Greater Noida, the plots which were selling at Rs 55000 to 60000 are now available for Rs 40,000 to Rs 45,000. In Indirapuram, rates of flats have come down to Rs 2500 to Rs 2700 per square feet from Rs 3000 to Rs 3200 per square feet.

Even prime areas in Delhi such as Friends Colony, Maharani Bagh, GK I & II, Prithviraj Road and Hauz Khas have witnessed a 5-10 percent fall in the prices.

    India’s real estate stocks that once paralleled the boom in property values may start to see more softening, in line with the tepid market. After the stock market crash, real estate stocks have been trading at a discount of 15-50% to their net asset values (NAVs), or the value of their assets less liabilities. And the recent drop in their values will likely stay until property developers start executing and selling more projects, say industry experts. Analysts say property stocks are overvalued and a correction in stock prices is bound to happen. Developers have taken on more projects than they can execute and valuations will not improve until we see projects actually being executed. Due to which the property stocks will be halved in value. Analysts also believe the correction in property stocks will be accompanied by a correction in real estate prices across the country. Developers in India were riding a high after an unprecedented economic boom and tax benefits for home buyers made it attractive for thousands of Indians to own homes. The resultant demand and boom also resulted in speculative buying, or flipping —holding properties for a short while to cash out on gains. Developers need money and if they can’t sell projects at the current high price levels they will have to bring down prices. However, not everyone thinks real estate valuations will come down. Many feel that real estate stocks have fallen but this has got to do more with the meltdown in the global markets. I think real estate stocks will recover when the market conditions improve.For more view-
