Covid19 has severely impacted the world including India. It has had a huge hit on the global economy and the real estate sector seems to bear the brunt. 2019 was a great year for real estate in India. However, ever since the nationwide lockdown came into effect, the real estate sector is suffering just like any other sector. It is predicted that real estate sales will drop by up to 35 percent across major cities in 2020. However, it does present a real opportunity for investors who are in it for the long-haul.

Commercial Real Estate

The commercial real estate segment is likely to be greatly impacted by Covid19 as compared to the residential real estate segment. Although the commercial real estate segment had been performing extremely well in recent years, the slowdown has been apparent. The absorption of the retail segment will be carefully analyzed by investors. The Indian residential real estate segment has been managing high demand and liquidity issues for quite some time now.

As industries immobilize, economies around the world are taking extra precautions. The central and state governments in India have taken certain steps to ensure the prevention and containment of the situation. However, the future seems unpredictable at the moment. The real estate market will need to implement policies to deal with no face to face meetings or visitors.

Lack of Foreign Initiative

As travel restrictions have become common, it is difficult to seek foreign collaboration. Many projects will face delays due to visa restrictions. Precautionary measures like restriction in construction activities will limit the construction of new buildings. Thus, property prices around the country are falling. With people conserving cash, the demand for real estate investment will fall which will lead to a further decrease in property prices. Hence, the right time to invest in real estate in India would be as soon as the Covid19 has been contained.

Invest Now For Higher Returns

If you want to make maximum capital gains on your real estate investment, then, now might be the best time to invest in the Indian real estate sector. Since property prices have fallen, you could own more properties for less and once things return to normal after the Covid19, you could sell the properties for higher returns. Remember, higher risk leads to higher rewards. With this in mind, you could take advantage of technology to look for properties that offer great potential.
