Positive Sentiment and Increased Activity:The report for the third quarter of the year (July-September) observed that the market was characterized by a positive sentiment and increased activity was witnessed. "The city witnessed the launch of various residential projects in the third quarter across many micro markets in both mid- and high-end segments. Capital and rental values appreciated across the city in the third quarter," the report observed. However, values are still below their all-time highs by about 10-30 per cent in Pune, the report said.
If property prices increase too much too soon...Aditi Vijayakar, executive director of residential services at C&W said, "The price and the buyer's sentiment are critical in the current market as key parameters influencing sales. Capital values in select locations in Pune are likely to see growth in the coming months. However, if prices increase too much too soon, there is a likelihood of them correcting again shortly after; the ideal graph representing recovery should be gradual and in line with the demand that calls for a period of considerable stabilization before the hike."
Property Price Correction and Value for Money Offers:According to Vijaykar, the Pune residential market has started to regain momentum in the past quarter with all locations witnessing marginal increase in rental and capital values by September 2009. Demand has started to move upward largely driven by end users. Pune is highly price sensitive and the current upward trend is largely a result of the correction in values that was witnessed in the last few quarters which have made the values more affordable. Also noticeable is that the large part of the transactions are happening in the newly-launched projects which offer more competitive values.
