Press Trust of India  |  MUMBAI 

/ -- The industry in is going through the worst phase in history. In a country where buying a home of one's choice is among the most significant decisions in an individual's life, this is a seemingly paradoxical development. The market in recent years had the lowest number of new launches due to demonetization, the implementation of the Goods and Service (GST), and the newly appointed Regulatory Authority (RERA).

However, is low inventory a bad thing? says otherwise. Surprisingly, while stocks plummeted, home sales have gone up since last year. Therefore, if the same number of people choose to list their home this year in contrast with the previous year, the currently available inventory should drop due to more people buying what is available on the market. The currency ban was a blessing in disguise, encouraging and more substantial deposits, resulting in a higher cash reserve with banks, which flowed into the economy and resulted in a higher GDP.

Finally, the strengthened regulations under have noticeably enhanced consumer confidence in

Although the uncertainty around the Lok Sabha election backs pre-election decisions, the post-election scenario is not going to harm the investments that were made earlier. Even if another political party assumes the reins of government, they will not interfere with their cash cows.

Hence, it can be safely established that the right time has finally arrived to reap some benefits in property business. Smart investors don't wait to buy and wait.
