The all-time low of this index, recorded in 2019, was at 3% p.a. Now contemplating that the curve has bottomed out and actual property costs are at an all-time low too, an annual charge of value progress of seven% is in line with the 3-year outlook on actual property value progress in dense city markets like Mumbai.
Now even when this charge of value progress appears high, the bottom annual appreciation recorded until in the final ten years was 3%, in Dec 2019, which if thought of, would make actual property a higher performing asset class than FDs.
