Personal Finance

A lot has happened in the housing finance industry in the last 6–9 months. The “Non-Banking Financial Company” crisis in India has brought to light the problems of the housing finance sector, particularly in terms of financing and low equity capitalisation. 

Which are the finest high-growth stocks to invest in the housing finance sector? You should know the most recent outlook for the housing finance sector in India, and which companies can benefit from this and take up the market share to benefit investors in India in 2022?

First, let’s look at some statistics related to the Indian housing finance sector.

 Statistics Related to the Indian Housing Finance Sector

  • At the end of FY-21, India’s outstanding home loans amounted to a huge 22.4 lakh crore, 12.1% more than they were worth in FY-20. In addition, between FY-17 and FY-21, the Indian home loan market grew at a 32% CAGR.
  • Experts think the market will grow quickly, with a CAGR of close to 22% between 2021 and 2026. And the affordable housing market could be part of what drives this growth.
  • The central government has put out programs like the credit-linked subsidy schemes (CLSS) under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY) that have helped move towards the goal of housing for all.
  • Last week, Anarock and PropTiger presented information about the housing market. From January to March, sales of homes in seven cities rose by 71% year over year, to 99,550 units, according to Anarock. Sales in eight major cities rose by 7% year over year, to 70,623 units, according to PropTiger.

Reasons for the Popularity of Housing Stocks in the Stock Market

Why buy housing-related stocks? Consider three long-term developments that should promote industrial growth:

  1. Spending More Time at Home

Most of us spent much more time at home because of the COVID-19 pandemic, and many workers are likely to work at least partly from home after the pandemic ends. Therefore, after a pandemic, people will probably want to buy homes more because they will spend more time at home.

  1. More People Want to Buy Homes

Some millennials have become adults without wanting or being able to buy a home. However, as this new generation ages, the number of families and the desire to own a home will increase. Any help from the national government to make paying off student loans easier should increase the demand for housing by easing the process for the youth to buy their own homes.

  1. Low Mortgage Rates

Mortgage rates have gone up from all-time lows, yet they are still low compared to the past. Low rates make it easier for people who want to buy a home to do so and let them pay more for their homes.
