MUMBAI, March 26, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- As anticipated, the COVID-19 pandemic had considerable impact on the Indian housing sector. Residential sales saw a 42% y-o-y drop in the first quarter of 2020, reveals the latest data by ANAROCK. In Q1 2020, residential sales in the top 7 cities stood at 45,200 units, against 78,510 units a year ago. On q-o-q basis, housing sales fell by 24%.
Meanwhile, new launches too fell by 42% annually - from 70,480 units in Q1 2019 to approx. 41,200 in Q1 2020. Q-o-q supply also declined by approx. 21%. Yearly trends indicate that MMR and Pune recorded the maximum y-o-y drop of housing supply - by 61% and 56% respectively - while Chennai and Kolkata actually displayed positive trends with nearly 16% and 8% yearly rise.
Anuj Puri, Chairman - ANAROCK Property Consultants says, "Given the ongoing global healthcare calamity, it's no surprise that housing sales and new project launches across India's top 7 cities decreased both on yearly and quarterly basis. As expected, monthly data trends reveal that March - the month when most advisories and lockdown were imposed - saw a steep decline in both new launches and housing sales against the preceding two months."
"The Government has taken an inarguably necessary hard-line stance to curtail the spread of the virus. The lockdowns have stalled construction activity and will lead to project delays in the future, but this is a reality the sector must accept and live with."
Perhaps the only silver lining is that developers were able to shed nearly 3% of their unsold inventory in a year - from 6.65 lakh units in Q1 2019 to over 6.44 lakh units in Q1 2020. On a quarterly basis, the decline was just 1%.
New Launch Overview - Q1 2020
The top 7 cities saw around 41,200 new units launched in Q1 2020, as opposed to 70,480 units in the corresponding period of 2019 and 51,850 units in Q4 2019.

- Bengaluru added approx. 8,600 units in Q1 2020 - a quarterly decrease of 18%. Over 87% of new supply was in the sub INR 80 lakh price bracket. The city's yearly decline stood at 5%.
- Pune added approx. 7,790 new units in Q1 2020, compared to 9,550 units in Q4 2019 - a drop of 19%. The new supply a year ago was approx. 17,520 units - a decline of 56% y-o-y.
