Samir Jasuja, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of PropEquity, says ?The take-up rates in key micro-markets have fallen significantly. In the coming Quarter, there would be strong pressures on many micro-markets and we expect inventory overhang to increase and absorption could continue to slow down. Mumbai and Gurgaon have already seen one of the sharpest falls in absorptions with MMR seeing a of 58% and NCR with a of 57%. If this trend continues, there could be ?stage 1? price correction in the range of 5% to 20%, especially in micro-markets of NCR, MMR and Hyderabad. Some micro-markets, where inventories have been managed well by developers would be able to overcome this phase. Bangalore has done reasonably better, given the demand has been end-user driven and new inventories have been fairly low in First Quarter of Calendar Year 2012. Generally, investor-driven markets would see downside risks than end-user driven markets.?
In Bangalore, the total absorption fell just 18% to 7,704 units in the first quarter from previous years 9,410 units.
Gaurav Pandey, Senior Vice President & Head ? Research and Consulting, says ?We believe that the priority for the government would now be managing growth than inflation, especially when the investor confidence has drastically dipped and there are serious downside risks. We?re expecting a 50 basis cut in both repo & reverse repo rate and 50 basis cut in CRR in the upcoming monetary policy review. While everyone is expecting a significant in CRR and marginal dip in repo rate, historically, we?re currently at one of the lowest CRR. The current CRR is at 4.75%, while back in December 1974 we saw probably the lowest CRR at 4%. A CRR cut alone would not be impactful on Real Estate and the Quarter 3 of Calendar Year 2102could be a serious challenge for this sector especially for listed real estate companies that have large debts, for whom demand slowdown would be a serious impact on their current valuations. A minimum of 50 basis cut on repo rate is desirable and anything less wouldn?t be sufficed.?
