Santhosh Kumar, Vice Chairman – ANAROCK Property Consultants says, “COVID-19 impacted both new launches and housing sales in all the top cities, including NCR. However, data trends clearly indicate the caution with which developers in Noida and Greater Noida applied in terms of new launches. These two markets previously had a lot of unsold stock and developers’ focus is now primarily on completing and selling previously launched projects. A reduction of by over 12% unsold stock in one year is remarkable, and indicates that developers’ offers and discounts bore fruit in this period.”
