The registrations for August 2021 were also 16 per cent higher compared to the pre-pandemic period of August 2019.
"Overwhelmingly, 92 per cent of the registered homes were fresh sales amounting to 6,241 units that were sold in the month of August 2021.
"New home sales grew from 53 per cent in July 2021, 42 per cent in June 2021 while in April was as low as 7 per cent," Knight Frank said.
The percentage contribution of women buyers to the total registrations remained steady at about 4 per cent totaling 271 registrations.
The consultant also highlighted that the state government's collections from stamp duty for August 2021 have crossed Rs 400 crore mark, which is close to the 2019 monthly average.
Shishir Baijal, Chairman & Managing Director, Knight Frank India, ?Real estate sales in Mumbai have bounced back strongly after the pandemic."
"Going by the rise in fresh sales during the month which has consistently grown since April along with the significant rise of sales of homes priced up to Rs 1 crore, we can safely say that the real demand has put the woes of the second wave behind," he added.
With the upcoming festive season and the expected economic revival along with improved vaccinations, Baijal expects this sales momentum to grow stronger.
"We believe that the time is ripe for the state government to offer further concessions to improve homeownership especially amongst women to provide a fillip to this category of homebuyers," he added.
