However, Western Suburbs (beyond Dahisar) saw the highest increase in prices at 10 percent YoY followed by Panvel with 8 percent increase YoY, the report said.

CREDAI National President Harsh Vardhan Patodia said, "The real estate market across the country has witnessed a K-shaped recovery in terms of prices. The consumer sentiment has continued to stay robust as the pandemic reshaped the importance of owning a home rather than renting one."

He expected sales to be northbound and the number of unsold inventories to decline as well.

"While there has been a rise in housing prices in line with the global inflationary trends, the market can expect the prices to continue to rise owing to robust demand," Patodia said.

Colliers India CEO Ramesh Nair said the rise in inflation and hike in input costs have put upward pressure on housing prices pan India.
