Has The Construction Cost of a House Increased?

Are you planning to construct a house shortly? if yes, then go through the post below. Everyone dreams of owning a house. But as of today due to the increase in the construction cost of the house, housing developers have raised the value and the engineers and architects have been charging high. Yes, the materials used for the construction of the houses have increased and due to this, the real estate industry has been affected.

Why Has The Construction Cost Increased?

Due to rising input costs brought on by supply-side limitations, construction costs have increased by 10–12 per cent over the past year. As per the reports, the price of essential resources like bricks, steel and cement have increased by more than 20%. Which are the major construction commodities and these make up the majority of the entire cost of construction. A sharp increase in the cost of essential raw materials like cement and iron and steel, among others, has made things even worse for developers during this pandemic and is anticipated to have a significant negative impact on the industry as a whole.

construction-costDevelopers’ average building expenses have increased by 10–12 per cent over the past year as a result of higher input costs.

The leading realtors and the companies are not happy regarding the rising prices and have stated that if construction material prices are not controlled, the housing costs may increase by 10-15 per cent.

The profit margins for housing developers are very less, and the rising inflationary trend of basic material costs like cement, steel, and labor is a serious problem. Budget house launches have grown challenging, particularly for developers of mid-range housing.

According to industry experts, the raw material producers are driving up costs by creating the appearance of a shortage, which is bad for the real estate market. Cement and steel producers raise prices by demonstrating a fake lack of stock, which negatively affects the real estate market.

cost-of-constructionSince the second wave of Corona, it has become harder and harder to create budget-friendly projects and mid range projects, due to the abrupt rise in raw material prices. Cement and steel costs that rise arbitrarily are bad for the industry. This will not only affect the developers and the construction companies, but also the projected housing plan of the government of India.

As of March 2022, the cost of steel, cement, copper, PVC pipes, and other construction materials has increased at a record rate over the past year, due to which the project cost will increase. Again, the rise in project cost is against the interests of both the sector and the consumer.

What is The Construction Cost of a House Per SqFt?

The construction cost of the house per square foot depends on the city, locality and the developer as well. It’s a one-on-one business. The average cost of construction in Bangalore ranges between Rs. 1,550 per square feet to Rs. 2000 per square feet. The construction cost in Bangalore may vary greatly depending on location due to several factors, including finishing costs and civil costs.


Real estate is the industry that creates the most jobs in the nation and supports a wide range of businesses. A sharp increase in the cost of essential raw materials like cement and iron and steel has made things worse for the real estate industry as of 2022. The industry has adopted several adaptations to survive the pandemic’s inception and the rise in the raw material cost. Let’s just hope the cost goes down for the betterment of everyone.

    We bought an apartment in Bangalore recently and Gangadhar made the entire process easy and seamless. Our experience with Gangadhar was outstanding and he took care of all the requirements for the property transfer end to end in a compressed timeframe. Gangadhar was patient, provided good advice and listened to all our requirements. He went above and beyond to help with a variety of other matters as well. I would highly recommend Gangadhar and his team.

Mr. Balaji and his team of trusted lieutenants ensured the process right from selecting the buyer till completion of sale was completed without any hiccups and took care of all the paper work. Balaji and his team were willing to go the extra mile to ensure the sale was complete as per agreement. We would like to commend Balaji and team and hope we will have the opportunity to engage him again in the future. Wishing Balaji and team all success personally and professionally.
