Here’s How Millennials Are Driving Demands To Change The Real Estate Landscapes

According to some of the latest reports, the shift in millennials’ investment and spending pattern is not just owed to a single factor, but multiple factors are involved. 

Who exactly are millennials?

The millennial generation comprises people born between 1981 and 1996. 

According to a leading report, the millennial population of India alone is higher than the complete population of the US, they form one-third of the total Indian population and 46% of the country’s workforce.

In India, millennials were considered a generation that seeks instant gratification and are extensive spenders, but the trend has been changing. 

To What Do We Owe The Changing Trends?

A recent report stated that millennials are ending their leases and moving to real estate investing. They are also making the fastest-growing segment of home buyers today. Experts have called this behavior a shift from the borrowing lifestyle to prioritizing investment in houses, medical bills, reports. They are also saving up to make big purchases or create emergency funds. 

This might have something to do with them becoming the sole providers for their family or simply a response to the pandemic-induced lockdown and the subsequent economic crash.  

While we can say that the pandemic has played a key role in the shift of mindset towards settling down and investing in real estate property, several smaller factors have influenced the decision as well. 

Work From Home or the WFH model was a great success in India where both employers and employees weighed down the hybrid working model as a sustainable framework for the future work culture where they wouldn’t have to change cities for jobs again and again.

Apart from this the lowest ever interest rates on home loans in Mumbai have also provided the ideal impetus for millennials to make their dream come true. The combination of easy credit, record-low interest rates and incentives by the government have supplemented the record-breaking purchases. And now home-buyers are also looking to purchase property and earn passive income by renting it out. All in all, we can say that the millennials group constitutes 63% of all buyers amongst all user bases and the percentage has gone up from 49%  in pre-covid times to this.

Assetmonk which is a leading real estate investment platform is also taking the lead in providing fractional ownership and co-living deals in metropolitans such as Bangalore, Hyderabad and Chennai and providing high-end real estate deals.

Their GMR Airport project, which was also born in the pandemic, has attracted a lot of investors and is expected to be a big show.

Big kitchens, working spaces, and great locations are some features of modern homes.

What is National Securities Depository Limited (NSDL)

NSDL or National Securities Depository Limited is a financial institution that was established to keep securities like shares, bonds, etc in the shape of non-physical or physical certifications, that is in demat format. The securities are maintained in deposit accounts, which are similar to funds in bank accounts. It allows for quick securities transfer because ownership gets transferred merely by ledger entries.
