Housing in Mumbai continues to thrive with strong April 2024 property registrations

Mumbai’s real estate sector is witnessing an impressive performance with property registrations for April 2024 expected to cross 11,500 units from 10,514 a year earlier. Notably, the current figures represent a 9% increase in registrations compared to the same period last year, reflecting a continuous positive outlook. This robust activity is projected to contribute over Rs 1,043 crore to the state exchequer, according to a report by Knight Frank India. The city’s property sector, under the jurisdiction of the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC), has consistently shown strong results, marking the fourth consecutive month where registrations have exceeded 10,000 units.

The majority of these transactions, about 80%, have been residential properties, underscoring the sustained demand for housing in the region. This trend is a clear indicator of homebuyers’ unwavering confidence in Mumbai’s real estate market, which has remained attractive to potential buyers.

April 2024 has also seen Mumbai record the second-highest number of property registrations for the month in the last 12 years, alongside the highest collection of stamp duty ever recorded for April. This surge in activity and revenue can be attributed to rising income levels and a positive attitude towards homeownership among Mumbai residents.

Here are the comments from the industry leaders on the robust registration numbers.
