While many industries were hit due to the extended lockdown following the COVID-19 pandemic, the real estate sector experienced a drop in demand and prices too. This drop was noticeable in cities like Pune with a large migrant population and dependence on small businesses. However, 2022 has been a good year for the sector. With pent-up demand for homes and offices, Pune has witnessed a steady growth in demand this year. Despite the RBI increasing REPO rates regularly and home loan rates rising, people have displayed an eagerness to invest in property in Pune.
