“The market is looking up, with developers receiving a good number of enquiries. There’s festive mood in the market. Thus, demand has picked up, starting Diwali season,” CREDAI-MCHI president, Mayur Shah said in a statement. He added that if things go the way sales are picking up, sales may even peak in another six months.
The implementation of RERA and GST boosted the confidence of home buyers, who were in a dilemma to buy a house. “The enhanced confidence resulted in many enquiries for the right kind of properties in Mumbai, which witnessed good traction during the current festive season,” Shah added. The association is also holding a three-day property expo, from November 16-19, 2017 in Mumbai.
