Hyderabad Witnessed 83% Y-o-Y Rise in New Residential Launches in Q1 2022

Hyderabad Witnessed 83% Y-o-Y Rise in New Residential Launches in Q1 2022

With moderation in Covid restrictions and rampant vaccination drives, the housing market in Hyderabad seems to have recuperated pretty well. In Q1 2022 alone, the city witnessed a massive 83 percent year-on-year growth in new project launches. Square Yards dives deep to reveal the reasons for this sudden increase in the supply of residential property units in the city.

Hyderabad’s housing market has seen a noticeable increase in the supply of residential property since Q1 2021 that peaked in the Q1 of 2022. The hike in supply has come at a time when an increasing number of people have been looking for a permanent housing solution to meet their needs.

With the pandemic now seemingly under control, a holistic approach to residential property launches was noticed. Square Yards research has shown that over 20K new residential housing units were launched in Hyderabad in the first quarter of 2022, with West Hyderabad grabbing the maximum share of 52 percent with over 10K launches.

What is more interesting to note is that out of all the property types, independent housing grabbed the highest 43 percent demand share in Q1 2022. But despite the high demand, the supply of independent housing options held a low share of just three percent. This can also be attributed to the emerging trend, where majority of the developers in Hyderabad are keen on offering plotted developments, the same comprising a lion’s share of 73 percent of the total supply in Q1, 2022 as well .

Weighing out all the components of the data, Square Yards investigates the reason behind the spike in new launches in Hyderabad along with the resurgence of the demand for independent houses.  

Demand and Supply Dynamics

According to Square Yards research, the first quarter of 2022 exhibited a massive jump in new residential project launches. Given below is an in-depth analysis of the demand and supply dynamics  witnessed in Hyderabad, drawing a comparison of the consumer’s home buying mentality based on property type and price bracket.

Dynamics Based on Property Type

Dynamics Based on Property Type

While space has always been one of the most crucial factors governing any home buying decision, it seems to have escalated even more in Q1 2022. This is because even though housing inventory in Hyderabad with 2, 3 and 4 BHK configurations dominated the market, more people were seen to gravitate towards independent houses.

A demand and supply research carried out by Square Yards has revealed that around 43 percent of the residential property demand in Q1 2022 was for independent housing units. This was followed by plots at 22 percent share, apartments at 21 percent share and villas and builder floors with 10 percent and four percent share, respectively.

While the surge in demand for residential housing options reflects the property buying sentiments and demographic of the city, the rise in demand for independent housing in particular has demonstrated the changing needs of potential homebuyers. 

Since independent housing options tend to be generally more expensive than apartments, builder floors, or plots, the sudden rise in demand can be attributed to the higher purchasing power of the people in the city along with the concept of spacious housing units still reigning the buyers sentiments . Apart from it, a sturdy desire to acquire multi-storeyed, gated properties for enhanced security, privacy and ownership could also be crucial reasons for the same.

Additionally, this could also indicate a returning trend of the city’s traditional housing needs. The craze for new age apartments and builder floors in southern cities like Hyderabad developed way later than it did in other metropolia of MMR, Gurgaon, Noida, etc. Taking into account the diverse working class population of the city, independent housing options may also be viewed as a potentially profitable investment option in terms of future return.

However, against its massive demand share of 43 percent, the supply share of independent houses was only a meagre three percent. This can be attributed to the fact that this desire of owning independent spaces is fairly new in the city which is yet to be tapped by potential developers.  

But, on the flip side, according to Square Yards research, plots in Hyderabad enjoyed a majority of 73 percent supply share in Q1 of 2022. Apartments had a 12 percent share in market supply, while builder floors had a nine percent share. Villas had the same supply percentage share as independent houses.

Dynamics Based on Ticket Size

In terms of the budget preference of homebuyers, Square Yards found a staggering demand share of 55 percent for property price ranges between Rs 30 to 100 lakhs in Q1 2022. This can indicate a rising preference for mid segment housing, especially for a populace of nuclear families.

A further analysis of this price range preference also indicates a spiked demand for new property launches in the city outskirts and developing zones as prices of properties in these localities are comparatively lesser than in the main city. This demand is almost met by 45 percent of the supply share of properties in this bracket in the housing market, creating an amicable demand and supply equilibrium in Q1 2022. 

However, this does not mean that prospective homebuyers are not looking for larger housing. About 24 percent of the demand share for properties ranging between Rs 1 to 3 crore has been witnessed in Q1 2022. This indicates a prominent shift in buyers’ preferences for larger spaces, especially independent houses. Similar patterns were noticed when the demand and supply paradigms of property types and property price ranges were further analysed.

While independent houses had a demand share of 43 percent against a supply share of just three percent, property prices ranging from Rs 1-3 crore also maintained a similar pattern with a demand share of 24 percent and a supply share of just seven percent. 

This indicates that within the realm of larger properties the demand for independent houses is making a significant impact. And even though the supply shares are quite low as of Q1 2022, gradually growing demand for such property types may push developers to build the same in the near future.

Another eye grabbing data is that properties less than Rs 30 lakhs and those ranging from Rs 60 to 100 lakhs have the same demand share of 18 percent. This data indicated another set of homebuyers in the Hyderabad housing market in Q1 2022. 

Demographically, while the ones in the less than Rs 30 lakh bracket may involve mostly the demand of working individuals and/or couples looking for stable housing, the preference for properties worth Rs 60 to 100 lakh may indicate either the need for budget homes amidst joint families or nuclear ones looking for more affluent options.

All in all, Square Yards data strongly points out the rising trend or the comeback of Hyderabad’s old housing culture via the increased demand for independent houses.

Square Yards research indicates there has been a noticeable increase in demand for residential properties in Hyderabad in Q1 2022. There have been over 20,000 new project launches in Hyderabad in the first four months of the year,  augmenting the percentage share of new residential launches in the city to a whopping year-on-year rise of  83 percent. 

Along with the new launches, what’s key to note here is the massive rise in the demand for independent houses, indicating a returning trend of Hyderabad’s traditional housing culture. Of the total demand share, 43 percent demand was for independent residential options. 

This demand pattern also screams the ever increasing need for larger and more private housing options at relatively affordable prices. Lucrative offers from developers, completion of pending projects, increased employment growth, and favourable support policies also play significant roles in augmenting the potential buyer’s increased confidence in the Hyderabad housing market.
