Monthly Watch: Home Sales Increase 7% In Gurgaon
The upwards movement that new project launches saw in the first month of the new year was halted in February, with numbers falling 69 per cent on a month-on-month basis. According to a PropTiger DataLabs report, when compared the same month last year, the fall in February 2017 stood at 44 per cent. What comes as a saving grace is a rise in home sales numbers. According to the report, home sales numbers saw a seven per cent increase over January. In fact, the luxury segment witnessed a 10 per cent increase in home sales. On an annual basis, however, the 75 per cent overall fall in numbers is substantial.
