real estate stocks

The real estate sector was one of the worst hit sectors during the Covid-19 pandemic. Ever since the pandemic began, many real estate stocks plunged to new lows. For example, the share price of DLF Ltd. fell by 50% between January 2020 and April 2020. The share price of Godrej Properties also fell by 37% during the same duration. Not just this, many other real estate stocks also saw a steep fall.

But, gradually as the economy started to revive, the shares of real estate companies started to rally again. Real estate giant,  DLF Ltd. was in a continuous bullish rally from April to October 2021.

Overview of the Indian Real Estate Sector

The real estate sector is one of the most popular sectors across the world. Even if you do not believe in investing, you would still plan to buy a house sooner or later in your life. So, almost every one of us plans to invest in the real estate sector at least once in our lifetime. And because of this never ending demand and limited supply, the prices of properties are touching new heights.

Now remember, the real estate sector is not just limited to residential properties. It also includes hospitality and commercial spaces. So, 80% of the real estate sector developed in India consists of residential space and 20% includes offices, shopping malls, hotels and hospitals.

The Indian real estate sector has seen high growth in recent times as the demand for office and residential spaces have spiked. Between January 2021 and September 2021, private equity investment inflows in India stood at US$ 3.3 billion. Not just that, the home sales volume across seven major cities in India surged 113% year on year (YoY) in the third quarter of 2021. There has also been an increase in inflow from Foreign Direct Investors (FDIs) by 7% on a YoY basis.

So, it is safe to say that the Indian real estate sector is slowly picking up pace and might soon be one of the fastest-growing sectors in India.

A REIT will use your invested money to buy physical real estate assets such as shopping malls, commercial spaces, hotels, apartments, etc. The maintenance cost of the property will be deducted from the rent earned and the remaining profits will be distributed among all the REIT unit holders in the form of dividends.
