The many challenges in residential real estate

In the early 2000s, a general euphoria engulfed the nation, especially the youth, induced by bright new opportunities lying ahead of them. Real estate dreams becoming a reality was a huge part of that giddiness.

Rapid urbanisation led to companies setting up their offices and development centres in metros that, in turn, attracted talent from all over the country. This led to a steep capital appreciation of residential assets, making everyone invest more and more in this sector. However, euphoria is inevitably followed by gloom.

The pall over this growth has been growing over the last five years — demonetisation, RERA, GST, and now COVID-19, have been big shocks that have significantly altered the residential real estate landscape.

About $150 billion worth financial distress looms the Indian residential real estate sector due to the unused, unsold inventory, and ongoing projects stuck at various stages. According to a report by Knight and Frank, the Indian residential real estate rental market stands at $13.5 billion while the shared residential rental market is worth $6.5 billion.

However, massive challenges like a mismatch in supply and demand, subdued demand, and liquidity crunch have brought growth to a standstill. The pandemic, too, has precipitated and

Greater Atlanta Residential Real Estate: Where are we now?

Greater Atlanta’s residential real estate market has gotten off to a strong start thanks to continued low interest rates and buyer interest after months of sheltering in place, according to Kelly Stephens, managing broker of Engel & Völkers Atlanta North Fulton and Engel & Völkers Buckhead Atlanta. She notes it’s currently a seller’s market, as the inventory of attached and detached single-family homes in the 14-county greater Atlanta area is low – perhaps an all-time low of 18,153. “Searching back seven years through FMLS (First Multiple Listing Service), I do not see another month with inventory reported at such a low number. Usually, we expect to see inventory at around 30,000 listings in greater Atlanta. Competition for existing homes is fierce, with sellers receiving multiple offers from prospective buyers,” Stephens says.

Stephens notes that increasing activity from iBuyers, means some traditional home buyers are losing to iBuyer cash offers. This situation is sending more traditional buyers to builder neighborhoods, as they are unable to find resale opportunities in older communities. Here, buyers have the opportunity to select a lot, and choose a floor plan and custom finishes to build the home of their dreams. Navigating this process is challenging in

Developers are also looking for more fund for the sector under SWAMIH so that stalled projects could be completed on a priority basis.

Indian Union Budget 2021-22: With the Union Budget 2021 round the corner, there are expectations galore that the government will do its best to help revive the sectors and industries which have been hit hard by the Covid-19 pandemic. No wonder, real estate is also betting big on this year’s budget for revival of fortunes.

According to industry experts, apart from making necessary interventions through fiscal support, liquidity infusion as well as reform-driven investments in the initial leg of relief measures, both the government and the RBI have in recent months rolled out other critical measures like loan moratorium, one-time restructuring of corporate and personal loans, among others to help the sector.

“These measures and concessions have definitely helped in enhancing consumer sentiment, thus boosting consumption, resulting in increased traction in the real estate sector. However, while we have seen a continuance of recovery in the fourth quarter which started in Q3 2020, the actual market transaction volumes continue to be lower compared to the pre-Covid levels,” says Ramesh Nair, CEO

Six Key Residential Wellness Design Trends For 2021

Wellness design was a strong and growing trend before Covid-19 reached our shores early last year, but it has exploded in popularity as the virus increased awareness of the links between home and health. It’s likely that the trend will long outlive the pandemic.

That’s partly because so many Americans have spent so many more hours at home considering what works for them and what doesn’t in their living spaces, have had to start working in existing or improvised home offices, set up distance learning stations for their children, possibly started doing bulk shopping online and needing more storage, inexplicably couldn’t find toilet paper in stores last Spring, and wished they had bidet functionality in their toilets; sequestered ill family members in spare rooms, or moved an older relative out of a nursing home or assisted living facility.

It’s also because the virus was shown last summer to be mostly transmitted via airborne spread in poorly-ventilated spaces, elevating the importance of indoor air quality management and improved ventilation.
