Nifty Realty surges Most 2009. Here's why.

Moving on to news from the realty sector, realty stocks were among the most sought-after on 10 October 2023 amid optimism over the festival season that is about to commence and encouraging second-quarter business updates from companies. Consequently, the Nifty Realty index was the biggest sectoral gainer at noon.

Nifty Realty index was up 4.4%, led by gains in Prestige Estates, which surged more than 12%. Sobha, Godrej Properties, Oberoi Realty and DLF had gained between 4 and 7%.

In the first half of the current financial year (H1FY24), the Prestige Group said it registered record-breaking sales of Rs 110 m, up 69% from the year-ago period, and collections of Rs 53.8 bn, up 13%.

Unsold housing stocks in Tier 1 cities dropped to 5,08,464 units in the third quarter of this calendar year from 5,26,497 in the year-ago period, representing an 11% decrease.

On the other hand, new launches were up 2% in these cities at 97,871 houses in the September quarter from 96,408 in the year-ago period.

The September quarter saw an 11% decline in new launches from the previous quarter due to lower demand following a rise in property prices as well as mortgage rates but that hasn't deterred investors.
