Home sales in Q3 2020 rise 2.5 times, launches surge 4.5 times: Knight Frank India

Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, home sales volume jumped by 2.5 times to 33,403 units in the third quarter of 2020 compared to 9,632 in the second quarter of 2020. New residential unit launches increased by 4.5 times to 31,106 units in third quarter, compared to 5,584 units in the previous quarter, a Knight Frank India report has said.

Sales saw an uptick in the third quarter of 2020 over the preceding quarter on account of innovative schemes offered by real estate developers. These included financial benefits, discounts and easy payment options to attract buyers during the period of lockdown. Developers were also able to garner buyer interest through active usage of digital platforms during this period to engage with customers.

Lower home loan interest rate also supported pick-up in residential sales. The acute labour crunch experienced in the earlier part of the lockdown also started to ease out, as workers began to return to main cities seeking employment.

Even while there is a considerable distance from normality, the residential sector has started to show signs of improvement in the third quarter of 2020, the report titled India Real Estate Update (July – September 2020) that analysed the residential and office market performances across eight major cities for the Q3 2020 period, said.

The total residential sales of the top eight markets under review during Q3 2020, reached 54 percent of 2019 quarterly average. Similarly, residential launches in Q3 2020, improved to 56 percent of the 2019 quarterly average. Mumbai, Bengaluru and NCR accounted for 56 percent of the quarterly sales volume during Q3 2020 compared to 62 percent in 2019, primarily due to a fall in Bengaluru’s share in total sales for

Pandemic boosts sales of luxury homes in resort communities

Wealthy Americans are snapping up multimillion-dollar homes in exclusive resort communities as the coronavirus pandemic continues to fuel a work-from-home lifestyle that no longer tethers workers to the office five days a week. 

Sales of expensive homes in places like Aspen, Colorado; the Hamptons; and Palm Beach, Florida have been booming since May, when it became clear the pandemic would upend Americans’ lifestyles indefinitely, according to real estate agents and appraisers across the country. 

“We are seeing greater sales gains in more expensive properties in areas people consider to be retirement destinations and resorts,” said Lawrence Yun, chief economist for the National Association of Realtors (NAR), a trade association representing real estate professionals. “I think this new economy and working from home can also mean working from a vacation home — that is, a larger size home with more elbow room that is in more of a vacation destination.”

For July, home sales in resort regions across the country were up nearly 29% compared to last year, according to NAR’s data. 

Indeed, the COVID-induced remote work phenomenon is fueling much of the uptick in high-end property sales in vacation destinations, according to New York City real estate appraiser Jonathan Miller of Miller Samuel.

In Aspen, there’s been what Miller called an “unusual surge” in home sales above $5 million in recent months.

Last month, nine new sales contracts were signed for homes between $10 million and $20 million in the upscale ski town, versus one in September last year, according to Douglas Elliman’s report of signed residential contracts authored by Miller.

“Inventory is flying off the shelf,” he said of the 800% increase in signed contracts for Aspen homes. 

Sales are rising in other high end communities as well. In Palm Beach County in September, ninety new contracts were signed

Forget Black Friday. Bed, Bath &  Beyond says the holiday deals start now. 

For shoppers, whose lives have largely revolved around their homes during the COVID-19 pandemic, the retailer intends to offer tips, discounts, and special loyalty perks to woo shoppers.

“With home being the epicenter of all of our lives throughout the pandemic … gifts for (shoppers’) homes are some of the things on the top of the shopping list this year,’’ says Cindy Davis, Bed Bath & Beyond’s chief brand officer.

Starting Oct. 4, through Oct. 31 customers who join the Beyond+ loyalty program will get a bonus card whose $29 value matches the membership fee. The program gives members a 20% discount whenever they make a purchase, as well as early looks at holiday deals and free standard shipping.

All shoppers who spend $75 from Wednesday through Saturday will get $25 in My Funds Rewards that they can use any time in a 30-day period to purchase linen, kitchen accessories and other products.

And shoppers who purchase $200 worth of merchandise online on Oct. 13 and 14 will earn $50 in My Funds Rewards.

The surge in online shopping as people stayed close to home during the global health crisis has apparently led to “some uncertainty and concern about not getting their items in time for the holidays’’ Davis says of some shoppers. So Bed Bath & Beyond is highlighting its options to buy online, then pick up in store, or the ability to pick up online orders curbside – services
