Tier-II Indian cities emerge as significant real estate development engines
According to a report, there has been an increase in the absorption and supply of quality residential homes across price ranges in Ahmedabad, Vadodara, Nashik, Gandhi Nagar, and Jaipur.
According to a recent analysis produced by real estate data analytics and consultancy firm PropEquity, Ahmedabad, Vadodara, Nashik, Gandhi Nagar, and Jaipur are the top tier-II cities in terms of residential property market growth. According to the research, the surge has been fueled by rising urbanization, industrialization, and the expansion of the IT industry.
According to the report, titled ‘Tier-II: Residential Overview,’ there has been a boom in the absorption and supply of quality residential properties in these locations across price groups. From FY18 to FY22, the report tracked the performance of the residential segment in various tier-II cities.
Tier-2 cities’ real estate activity is rapidly catching up to that of tier-1 cities. Interestingly, Ahmedabad’s residential real estate market size of Rs 83,390 crore outstripped that of major tier-1 cities like as Chennai and Kolkata, which had market sizes of Rs 52,554 crore and Rs 38,440 crore, respectively, at the end of FY22. It is also worth noting that the market share of Tier-I cities has been almost four times that of Tier-II cities over the previous five fiscal years.
Following the Covid lockdowns, tier-2 cities have seen a healthy pace of employment growth, and many IT and other industry businesses are encouraging workers to work from home for at least the next several years. This has resulted in significant interest in tier-2 housing developments due to their appealing price and potential for better returns on investments.
