The state government has collected a sum of ₹808 crore as revenue from registration of 9,923 units in Mumbai. There is about 3% decline revenue from property registration in July this year vis-a-vis July 2022, said a study conducted by Anarock group.

Since the onset of the pandemic, the allure of larger units has been on the rise. Considering that people are spending more time at home due to the hybrid work policies institutionalized by many organizations, it has become even more important to own properties that provide ample space and liveable conditions.

“Analysing the new unit launches in Mumbai for the period of Apr-Jun 2023, it was evident that the ₹80 lakh–₹1.5 Cr segment experienced the highest activity, constituting 43% of the total,” says Puri. “Following closely was the ₹1.5 Cr–₹2.5 Cr segment, making up 27% of the total. Surprisingly, properties priced above ₹2.5 Cr accounted for 21% of the total, indicating a noteworthy share and rising from 17% in the previous quarter.”

Since the onset of the pandemic, the luxury real estate segment has been thriving exceptionally. High net worth individuals (HNIs) and ultra high net worth individuals (UHNIs) have been capitalizing on the market conditions and securing deals at favourable rates. Being a hub of affluent individuals, Mumbai has witnessed a strong demand momentum in the luxury housing sector, and this trend is expected to persist for at least the next couple of years.

Regarding the regional analysis of Mumbai’s new launches in Apr-Jun 2023, the highest number was recorded in the western suburbs (55%), closely followed by the central suburbs (38%). The operationalization of the second phase of two metro lines has spurred real estate activity in the western suburbs as connectivity has improved and commuting has now become convenient.
