Of the overall registered properties, residential units constitute 80 per cent. Mumbai city is estimated to see registrations of more than 1,27,000 units this year and will lead to revenue collection of more than Rs 10,000 crore.
Mumbai city is set to record the highest registration of properties in 11 years. It will surpass the number achieved in the 2022 calendar year at 1,22,035 units.
Knight Frank CMD Shishir Baijal said the demand has been driven by rising income levels, better affordability, and a positive homeownership outlook.
"Notably, a 57 per cent increase in share of high-value property registrations attests to the robustness of the market," he said.
Supported by stable interest rates and an increasing preference for bigger and better homes, homebuyer confidence continues to fuel Mumbai's real estate momentum, Baijal said.
