Property sale and lease transactions in South India (which is taken to be Bengaluru, Chennai, Coimbatore, Hyderabad, and Warangal districts) noticed a general decline in May 2022, compared to the numbers in April.
For sales registrations in the regions observed, Bengaluru was an exception, where an increase in sales volume was observed. This increase may be attributed to the Government of Karnataka’s decision of extending the duration of reduced property guidance values by 3 months. 
Bengaluru Has Seen an Increase in Sales Transactions MoM
The government of Tamil Nadu’s decision to hike property tax in April  across the board may be attributed for the steep decline observed in sales registrations for Chennai and Coimbatore in May, compared to what was observed in April.
Property lease registrations have seen a decline in all geographies except for in Hyderabad, where a marginal increase of 6% is observed.
Lease Activity Has Seen a General Decline MoM
The segment wise distribution for sales has not seen a change for any of the regions observed, with a predominant share taken by Affordable (ticket size < 45 lakhs) properties.
Affordable Segment Drives Sales Volume
Taking a closer look at the geographical distributions for transactions, it is seen that the localities with the most number of sales transactions in Bengaluru, such as Begur and Kodathi, lie in the outskirts of the city.
This trend was also observed in Warangal, with the top localities, such as Hanamkonda and Bhimaram, were found to be concentrated to the north western outskirts of the city. Chennai was an exception to this trend, however, with a more varied distribution of sales transactions geographically.
For the top localities with the most number of lease transactions, it was observed that Chennai observed a high concentration of lease activity in its southern part, with a high volume of lease registrations noted in Okkiyam Thuraipakkam, and Velachery.
