Mumbai saw its most expensive apartment sale on record last month, with a sea-facing duplex located in the highly sought after Malabar Hill area fetching a staggering $9.1 million, according to local media reports.
This record-breaking sale stands in stark contrast to growing pessimism over the broader outlook for Mumbai’s subdued residential property market, which faces a subdued job market, lower household incomes and higher interest rates.
The combination is increasing the risk of a home-price correction in India’s financial center over the coming months, analysts say, noting housing prices in Mumbai have risen nearly 70 percent over the past four years.
