This surge is primarily attributed to robust housing demand and economic expansion."
Annual property registrations in Mumbai hit a record high, with over 1.14 lakh registrations in the first 11 months of 2023. Meanwhile, November's data showed 9,548 units registered.

Also, this is the highest number of registrations recorded during November in the last five years, showcasing a well-sustained growth in demand for housing in Mumbai MMR.
"Along with the strong domestic economic macros and no immediate change in the repo rate, this momentous growth is primarily attributed to the connectivity boost, leading to the strengthening of housing demand in new micro-markets in the suburbs.
With redevelopment and upcoming infrastructural projects serving as growth propellers for the housing segment in the financial capital, we anticipate this sentiment to further strengthen over time, creating new opportunities for branded developers to explore."
