According to a recent research report by JP Morgan, the seven-year residential down cycle that started in 2011 has ended, as is evident from the rising sales and falling debt levels of the large real estate developers. The debt levels of listed players have gone down and their rising cash levels provide the scope for new launches.
Another report by Deutsche Bank states that the interest rate cycle is turning in favour of the real estate sector, and will support developers’ earnings outlook.
