Indian real estate – boom or a bubble?

Property prices in India are rising fast, and as the tech boom spreads across the country, and more Indians buy homes,with the growing economy at the rate faster than 8% a year, real estate is attracting more investors, even from overseas

Though India is one of the major countries in Asia with an improving market there are concerns about an asset-price bubble raising questions as to whether the speculation of the past year and a half, which has driven land prices up by 30% to 100% and real estate stocks up as much as 2,000%, may be coming to an end.

  • Hi.........,
    I think no one knows this for ure. Bu let hear the expert views Concerns about an asset price bubble have led the Resserve Bank of India to raise the risk weightage on real estate loans exended by banks, and mortgage rae have gone from 7.5% to about 9.5% as a result, That's still well brlow the 15% rate that most Indians were used to, but it's enough to raise questions about whether the speculation of the past year and a half, which has driven land prices up by 30% to 100% and real estae stocks up as much as 2'000% , may be coming to an end.

    Dear grace,

    Yes. We cannot see such increases repeating atleast for another 6 to 12 months minimum. Either, it will be slowly going downtrend or remain at same levels as of now.

  • Re Will Correct By 50% If Not More

    we will see corrections in real estate more than 50 % in one year. the next year IT budget by US companies will be known only by march. more job losses likely and more real estate corrections also likely

    Dear badrig,

    If what you say is going to happen, it will be bad for the RE industry as a whole but may be good for the buyers.
