The Indian residential real estate market showcased an impressive feat in 2023, surpassing expectations with record-breaking housing sales across the top 7 cities, as revealed by the latest data from real estate consultant Anarock.

The report highlighted the Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR) leading the charts, recording about 1,53,870 units sold in 2023, closely trailed by Pune with around 86,680 units sold.
