Delhi sees biggest spike in home prices among metros despite sales dip - home prices - Delhi - India

Most big cities, including Delhi and Kolkata, have witnessed a sharp rise in property prices despite fewer sales in the first quarter of the current financial year ending March 2013. Brokerage Nomura attributed the price increase to limited supply.

"House prices remained on an uptrend despite weak transaction volumes, high interest rates and slowing economic growth as supply has been limited with fewer projects being added, especially in key markets such as Mumbai and Delhi due to government approval delays," Nomura said.

According to the Reserve Bank of India's quarterly House Price Index, home prices at the all-India level rose 24 per cent year-on-year for the three months ended June.

Delhi, which witnessed a 42 per cent annual surge in property prices in the April to June quarter, saw a nearly 11 per cent fall in sales. Kolkata, where home prices rose 30 per cent, saw a 9 per cent dip in sales. Chennai witnessed a 26 per cent jump in property prices, but sales were flat (the Chennai index is based on both residential and commercial properties).
