When focusing on the need for residential real estate, one of the critical factors to consider is the current population and urbanization. The expected population in the country is expected to reach 24 million by 2030, and a 0.39% increase in the year 2021 alone. Sri Lanka's current rate of urbanization stands at 1.22% and is expected to rise by 3% - 4% per year. Colombo District has the highest population density of 3,512/km², and it is constantly growing. 28% of the total population is located in the Western Province, which is equivalent to 6% of the total area of the island. Therefore, demand for residential real estate is growing as Sri Lanka requires around 100,000 units per year to close the housing deficit by 2030. However, only 25,000 units are being built each year. The annual real estate market report of the RIU 2020/21 demonstrates that the industry operated with tenacity and perseverance over the previous year despite the economy's exceptional problems. Moreover, the studies revealed that over the next 2-3 years, Sri Lanka would experience an undersupply of residential real estate assets, and real estate would become a seller's market due to the post-COVID-19 demand surge. However, this would be a limited opportunity which is expected to continue until mid-2023.
Despite the challenges in the prevailing business environment, Home Lands Skyline remains confident in the residential real estate industry and looks to invest in new concepts leveraging its extensive experience in the industry. They maintain the newness of each project and they excel at creating exceptional buyer value while creating favourable investment opportunities even in an uncertain market. The year 2022 seems another winning year for Home Lands Skyline as they come up with another splendid project in Wadduwa, Sri Lanka. It seems they keep on marking that they are the Undisputed Market Leader in the Residential Real Estate Sector in Sri Lanka.
