Starting with demonetization in 2016, the economic reforms continued throughout 2017, including the inception of RERA and the imposition of GST. These policies have slowed down the growth of real estate in India to a certain extent. However, the economic policies have increased the transparency in the industry and the homebuyers are more confident to make their purchases now. The real estate industry is recovering, and a number of favourable trends are likely to emerge in 2018 and 2019. Here are the important trends that are likely to show up in the industry.
