From 40 Bps in the month of May, the repo rates increased to 50 Bps in June. This surprising shift within one month has made home loan interest rates go another round of hike! While many industry players have stated that the sudden revision of RBI repo rates will have an additional negative impact on the real estate sector! The ever-increasing construction costs will make home-buying an expensive aspect in the middle-class sector of the country. But there is one ray of hope that we can consider in these difficult times and that is capital appreciation. Now investment savvy people will identify the importance of investing in fixed income assets and move apart from conventional saving methods. Also, this will push up the rental yields. Which will indeed leave a positive impact on the real estate industry.
