This is right time to buy a property in Hyderabad as prices continue to be affordable. This may not last long as it may turn a sellers market, according to real estate body CREDAI.
The President of Confederation of Real Estate Developers Association of India, C. Sekhar Reddy, said the market sentiment has turned positive in the last few months and the demand continues to improve. But this phase is unlikely to sustain long as builders may hike prices.
Interacting with Business Line ahead of the CREDAI Property Show to be held here during November 2 to 5, Reddy said the demand supply position will change as new supplies are not likely to come up. There was lag in taking up projects.
The Government Order No. 45, which made it mandatory for builders to earmark land for housing for poor impacted the developers’ sentiment. This resulted in builders postponing taking up new projects.
However, with the Government changing norms, now builders are back in the race to develop new projects. Yet, it will take about 24 months to 36 months for new supply to come up.
Ramakrishna Rao, Vice President, CREDAI, Hyderabad Chapter, said the market is ripe for people to buy. Going forward, builders would not be able to offer apartments and houses at the current rates if one factors inflation, increase in input costs and labour costs.
Only the old inventory can be offered at the current rates, which are nearly half that available in some cities like Chennai and Bangalore.
Referring to the show, Rao said this is an ideal platform where more than 150 builders from across the State will partake. Buyers will have added assurance of CREDAI support when thy purchase properties from registered builders.
