The concept of wellness living was birthed by Ms. Yukti Nagpal, Director, Gulshan Group. She believes that people who want to maintain the changes they experienced during COVID-19 in their personal and professional lives must convert these behaviors into the built environment. Many people discovered a renewed respect for a healthy lifestyle due to the lockdown restriction of no outdoor activity.

Post Covid

Post-Covid, the real estate sector’s most recent goal is to have projects with amenities and services that makes living stress-free  in a healthier lifestyle. The project will be designed and planned precisely to meet the needs of consumers who have become more health-conscious and are concerned about the hygiene quotient of their living spaces. The concept of having more open areas with thoughtful organic produce will gain traction. Instead of thinking about ‘kitne ka hai’ (The price?), people are more inclined to live a healthy lifestyle.

Healthy way of living

The demands will now be entirely different, and they will be influenced in most cases by the global epidemic that people have now experienced. Almost all of them have international exposure and have visited some of the most innovative housing projects in other countries that promote a healthy way of living. The millennial generation will be particularly concerned, and they may regard it as a societal requirement in addition to their need for the luxurious services at their door step.

Organic farming and green spaces

The demand for organic farming facilities within projects that can provide residents with benefits about the quality vegetables, they consume is anticipated to grow. People are willing to spend a little more money to receive amenities that help them add value their lives. The global pandemic has unquestionably made everyone appreciate the fresh air they had been missing. The importance of having water bodies and air freshening devices inside the projects will be valued now that practically everyone recognizes the pure air and importance of water. The projects where there is an abundance of green space, parks, and other amenities in one location, will take primacy.

Accommodating health facilities is a dire need

People between the ages of 25 and 35 will be the generation that will be absolutely clear about demand; this is India’s millennial population, which numbers over 400 million people and accounts for roughly 46% of the country’s earning population. This healthy lifestyle trend does not necessarily imply that individuals will only opt for higher-end products, but it does indicate that they will be more aware of the project’s value offer. Buyers must be provided with the best possible amenities that will assist them in maintaining their lifestyle. Demand will rise across the board in the residential real estate market. Developers must recognize that accommodating health amenities are no longer a luxury; instead, they are a requirement to obtain acceptance from today’s homebuyers.

The choice to stay active and prductive

Buyers are also more likely to be drawn to developments that address their needs, such as schools, retail, entertainment, and healthcare. People will pick projects that allow them to walk or cycle to work to stay active and productive. Buyers would choose a home that provides them with fitness and health requirements. It would also be their choice to encourage Hon’ble Prime Minister’s ‘Fit India Movement’.
