Chennai: Assuming supply and demand-side equations being favourable, residential property prices are likely to see a 5 per cent rise in 2022, says a report.

After facing a series of structural reforms like demonetisation, GST and Rera during the last decade, the pandemic arrived as another blow for the real estate sector. The decadal analysis of the 2011 to 2021 period indicates many of the supply and demand-side factors have started putting upward pressure on house prices and as a result around 5 per cent price increase is likely in 2022, according to property consultants Knight Frank India.
