FY24: Key Highlights & Events

  • Residential

 “Residential real estate witnessed another year of a strong upcycle due to increased project launches, sales volumes, and price appreciation. Demand for affordable housing reduced, and that for larger homes increased,” says Aashiesh Agarwaal, SVP – Research & Investment Advisory, ANAROCK Capital. “The luxury homes market continues to post a robust performance. Interestingly, demand for under construction properties rose sharply during the year. The improved sentiment has also encouraged large investor to increase their participation in the market. However, the aggregate investment in the sector is lower than in FY23, due to some larger-than-average transactions during the last year.”

 

  • Commercial Office

 

Commercial real estate deals remained very thin on the ground, due to multiple factors such as the delayed notification of SEZ amendments, elevated interest rates, and global uncertainties. However, given strong demand fundamentals of commercial real estate, driven by leading IT companies’ determined push to return to office, increased traction of co-working spaces, a favorable capex cycle, the amendment of SEZ laws, and expectations of lower interests, commercial office real estate activity should strengthen over the coming quarters.

 

  • Retail

 

The retail segment of Indian real estate is thriving due to economic growth. Key names in the nation’s mall development arena, including DLF, Lakeshore, Inorbit, Nexus and Phoenix, are aggressively pursuing expansion. This surge in capital allocations aligns with the expansion strategies of leading retailers, resulting in a substantial uptick in store numbers. Rentals are expected to firm up, since economic buoyancy and robust consumer sentiment has led to healthy demand and trading densities for retail assets.

 

  • Industrial & Logistics

 

The industrial & logistics segment continues to hold promise for investors, with strong growth prospects on the back of robust consumption and expectations of manufacturing-led growth. While transactions in this segment were thin in FY24, they are expected to revive in FY25.

 

  • SM REITs

 

Towards the end of FY24, SEBI notified amendments to REIT regulations, paving the way for Small and Medium Real Estate Investment Trusts (SM REITs). This move aims to regulate fractional ownership of properties. Under these regulations, the minimum subscription size is INR 10 lakhs, the minimum number of investors is 200, and asset size can range between INR 50 Cr to INR 500 Cr.

 

  • Stressed Assets

 

While this segment has seen the emergence of a class of investors specializing in stressed asset resolutions, lenders are increasingly likely to settle with the promoters to avoid litigations.

 

  • AIFs

 

In December 2023, RBI issued a circular barring lender from investing in AIFs where the AIFs had lent downstream to companies wherein the lender had exposures. For existing investments, lenders were required to liquidate within 30 days or to set aside higher provisioning (100%) for their investments in such AIFs.

 

However, the end of March 2024 brought a breather – lenders were allowed to invest AIFs which has invested in a debtor company of the former. The RBI also gave relief on provisioning norms – provisioning would be required only to the extent of the lender’s investment in the AIF scheme, which is further invested by the fund in the debtor company.

Navratri Festivity Fuels Investment Optimism: Developers Eye Surge in Demand Across Real Estate and Infrastructure Sectors

Navratri holds a revered status in India for property acquisition, resonating with profound cultural significance heralding fresh opportunities and prosperity. It is deeply ingrained in the collective consciousness that engaging in significant endeavors such as property investment during Navratri brings forth auspicious outcomes.

In line with this enduring tradition, the millennials also espouse reverence for customary practices, demonstrating a penchant for property acquisition during Navratri. While staying attuned to pragmatic considerations such as market dynamics and financial viability, their adherence to age-old beliefs fortifies the robustness of the real estate sector.

As Navratri unfurls the tapestry of the festive season, there exists a palpable anticipation within the real estate market, poised for heightened consumer activity and transactional fervor. Real estate developers eagerly embrace this opportune moment, unveiling an array of enticing offers, discounts, and bespoke promotions, leveraging the buoyant spirit of the festivities to invigorate sales and engender prosperity in the marketplace.

Ravi Saund, Founding Director of Emperium Realty Pvt Ltd said, “India’s real estate sector is outpacing global markets and is expected to continue thriving. The festive season will elevate the market even further, with a clear preference for spacious homes equipped with contemporary amenities such as dedicated workspaces, expansive balconies, fitness and wellness zones, play areas for children, serene prayer rooms, and numerous high-end facilities. Customers are displaying remarkable confidence in pursuing their dream properties, and we anticipate this trend to gain even more momentum during the festive season, extending well into the remainder of 2024. The surge in demand for real estate assets indicates the sector’s robust health, and we predict that it will continue to grow in the foreseeable future.

Varun Bassi, Head of Sales and Marketing Worldwide Realty said, “During Navratri, there is a noticeable increase in demand for various real estate offerings such as spacious homes, dedicated floors, SCO (Shop-Cum-Office) units, commercial office spaces, and land parcels suitable for initiating manufacturing units. This heightened interest provides developers with the perfect opportunity to showcase their offerings by rolling out attractive deals and unveiling new projects tailored to cater to this specific market sentiment.

The festive season acts as a catalyst, further propelling the real estate market to new heights, with consumers exhibiting a clear preference for property investments during this time. This surge in demand not only underscores the sector’s resilience but also serves as a testament to its robust health. As such, we anticipate sustained growth in the real estate sector in the foreseeable future, fueled by the buoyant market dynamics observed during Navratri and other festive periods.
