Covid-19 has affected all of us with equal gusto. Lots of hardships have been faced both by common man and businesses. However, there is a silver lining for all those who are planning to buy their dream abode.
In the current COVID-19 scenario, the residential real estate sector has taken a beating. Prices of residential projects in Mumbai have corrected at least 10-15% due to oversupply and weak demand.
Sales have declined by almost 49% in the first half of 2020 across the top seven cities as compared with the same period, last year, according to a report by ANAROCK Property Consultants.
Prices have bottomed out and developers are prioritizing cash flows over profitability. Housing prices are currently ruling at lower than 2012 level and there is minimal scope of further correction.
Improving consumer sentiments
A consumer survey by ANAROCK conducted during the lockdown period says 72 per cent buyers still prefer to buy a property, out of which 44 per cent have not changed their plans. Interestingly, 12 per cent respondents who were previously not planning to buy, are now interested.
In fact, millennials who favoured rental properties before, now want to buy a property for end-use.
Reduced ownership cost
Property prices have already softened with a fair amount of correction in markets like Mumbai. The cost of ownership is perhaps lowest in a decade and EMIs have come down to almost 700 per lakh from1,000 per lakh.
As a result, there is an available buying opportunity which buyers with adequate liquidity must consider.
With RBI’s series of Repo Rate cuts, the repo rate now stands at 4%, lowest since years. It translates to lower EMIs. Which means, there would be less outgo in terms of EMI.
Currently, some of the lowest interest rates are under 7%, going as low as 6.85%. One year ago, at the start of July, the lowest rates were in the range of 8.55 to 8.75 per cent,” says Adil Shetty, Chief Executive Officer at BankBazaar.
So, this reduction in interest rates, although small in percentages, will lead to a fair amount of reduction in your EMI. Depending upon the loan amount, you can save from a hundred to a couple of thousand rupees a month. Also, compounded over the full tenure of the loan, small monthly deductions translate into several lakh rupees.
