Residential real estate property in Mumbai hit its highest recorded sale in India, in the past 10 years, in July 2021. A substantial reason for this are millennials, whose reaction to the pandemic highlighted the change of mindset
According to some of the latest reports, the shift in millennials’ investment and spending pattern is not just owed to a single factor, but multiple factors are involved.
Who exactly are millennials?
The millennial generation comprises people born between 1981 and 1996.
According to a leading report, the millennial population of India alone is higher than the complete population of the US, they form one-third of the total Indian population and 46% of the country’s workforce.
In India, millennials were considered a generation that seeks instant gratification and are extensive spenders, but the trend has been changing.
To What Do We Owe The Changing Trends?
A recent report stated that millennials are ending their leases and moving to real estate investing. They are also making the fastest-growing segment of home buyers today. Experts have called this behavior a shift from the borrowing lifestyle to prioritizing investment in houses, medical bills, reports. They are also saving up to make big purchases or create emergency funds.
This might have something to do with them becoming the sole providers for their family or simply a response to the pandemic-induced lockdown and the subsequent economic crash.
While we can say that the pandemic has played a key role in the shift of mindset towards settling down and investing in real estate property, several smaller factors have influenced the decision as well.
Work From Home or the WFH model was a great success in India where both employers and employees weighed down the hybrid working model as a sustainable framework for the future work culture where they wouldn’t have to change cities for jobs again and again.
Apart from this the lowest ever interest rates on home loans in Mumbai have also provided the ideal impetus for millennials to make their dream come true. The combination of easy credit, record-low interest rates and incentives by the government have supplemented the record-breaking purchases. And now home-buyers are also looking to purchase property and earn passive income by renting it out. All in all, we can say that the millennials group constitutes 63% of all buyers amongst all user bases and the percentage has gone up from 49% in pre-covid times to this.
