Mumbai/UNI: Hyderabad recorded the highest residential appreciation amongst eight Indian cities in Q3 2021, a Knight Frank report said.

Mumbai was the lowest-ranked Indian city with a global ranking of 146th on the index, registering a decline of 1.8 percent in home prices.
Shishir Baijal, Chairman and Managing Director for Knight Frank India, said: “India has seen a strong demand revival being supported by government stimulants, increased household savings, as well as low interest rates. Pricing has played a key role in pushing up home sales, as they had, for most part of the last six quarters, remained attractive."
''As demand trends developed, residential values firmed up in many markets, and are now expected to remain between stable to increasing. However, developments in the pricing dynamics will depend on the future demand. Factors like interest rates, impact of Omicron and inflationary pressures, amongst others will determine buyer sentiments,'' he said.
