However, in the Delhi-NCR residential market, which has been adversely impacted due to defaults of many big builders like Amrapali, Jaypee Infratech and Unitech, it will take 62 months to sell over 1 lakh unsold housing units.
Housing brokerage firm PropTiger.com data showed that unsold housing inventory has increased to 7,85,260 units as on September 30, 2022, from 7,63,650 unsold units at the end of the previous quarter. The consultant tracks the primary housing market of eight cities — Ahmedabad, Delhi NCR (Delhi, Gurugram, Noida, Greater Noida, Ghaziabad, and Faridabad), Chennai, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Mumbai Metropolitan Region (Boisar, Dombivli, Mumbai, Mazagaon, Panvel, Thane West), and Pune.
Housing sales rose 49 per cent to 83,220 units in July-September 2022 across these eight cities as compared to 55,910 units sold in the corresponding period of the last year. With the revival in housing demand, PropTiger report highlighted that there has been a significant decline in the inventory overhang — the estimated period builders in a particular market are likely to take to sell off their unsold stock at the existing sales velocity — to 32 months in July-September this year from 44 months in Q3 of 2021.
The consultant noted that a revival in sales after the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic has helped in improvement in inventory overhang. Kolkata has the lowest inventory overhang of 24 months, while Delhi-NCR has the highest at 62 months.
Nearly 21 per cent of the unsold inventory across these eight cities falls in the ready-to-move-in category. As per the data, Ahmedabad has 65,160 unsold housing units at the end of the September quarter with an inventory overhang of 30 months.
Unsold housing stocks in Bengaluru are 77,260 units and builders will take 28 months to clear the inventories. Chennai has 32,180 unsold housing units with 27 months of inventory overhang, while Delhi-NCR has 1,00,770 unsold stocks, which are estimated to get exhausted in whopping 62 months.
Unsold homes in Hyderabad are 99,090 units with an inventory overhang of 41 months. Kolkata has 22,530 unsold housing units with the lowest 24 months of inventory overhang.
In Maharashtra’s two biggest property markets, Mumbai has 2,72,960 unsold housing units with an inventory overhang of 33 months. Pune builders will need 22 months to clear 1,15,310 unsold housing units at the current speed.
