Money is pouring into the real estate sector

A lot of money is currently flowing into the Indian real estate sector. Not only domestic investors but also foreign investors and FIIs are investing a lot of money here. If you go to buy a property in the market now, you will find that prices have skyrocketed. So, is this foreign money behind the boom in the market? How much money have foreign investors invested in the Indian real estate market?

Real estate advisory firm JLL India has published a report on the matter. According to it, institutional investment in the real estate sector has increased by 62 percent in the last six months. This has also been accompanied by a large amount of foreign investment.

JLL India says that despite the global uncertainty and election season, foreign investors continue to have unwavering confidence in India during this period. This tells the story of the country’s strong economic situation. The report says that out of the total investment in the real estate sector, the warehouse sector received 34 per cent investment. Following this, 33 per cent investment has been achieved in the residential sector and 27 per cent in the commercial sector.

Are prices rising due to foreign investment?

The flow of money has increased due to the increase in foreign investment in the market. That is why the market is experiencing a boom. However, in addition to the JLL India report, the report of another real estate consultant, Colliers India, contradicts the previous estimates. Their report says that the total institutional investment in the real estate sector has decreased by 6 percent during the first half of 2024. It has been $3.52 billion. According to Colliers, this investment in the same period last year was $3.76 billion.

The real estate market is eagerly awaiting the budget. The industry expects the government to focus on increasing demand in the upcoming budget. Sanjeev Srivastava, Founder and Chairman of Assotech Group, says that the country’s real estate sector is currently at an important juncture. Demand for residential, commercial and industrial real estate has increased in the market. But the government needs to focus primarily on affordable housing.
