Satish said, “Bangalore is said to be one of the most strong real estate markets of the country, has come under large pressure in last two years after reaching a peak in 2013. In h2 2016, the new launches were declined by 45% year-on-year while sales volume dipped by 27% year-on-year.”

“While launches were already on a weakening due to factors like increasing unsold record, BBMP’s (Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike) drive to oppose the violation of lake beds and other issues like the announcement of notes ban in Q4 of the current fiscal, further led to curbing of new launches. The South Bengaluru has seen the highest launches and sales mainly due to affordable budgets, employment hubs, and social infrastructure and upcoming metro connectivity,” Satish added.

Irfan Razack, Prestige Group Chairman, said, “There are no possibilities of prices down.  We don’t agree on this. Developers work on wafer thin margins of 8-10%. I guess that if there is an analyst in supply, the prices can go up.”

Satish also claimed that big builders who have a huge portfolio are struggling to sell one or two apartments a month. After the demonetization, public mindset changed and they followed wait and watch schema. If I am a buyer, my focus should be on completed projects rather than under-construction projects.
