New buildings market: prices continue to rise

The preferential mortgage, which has made the majority of borrowers in Moscow and St. Petersburg, “handled”, continues its triumphant march across the rest of the country. From July to September, new buildings continued to rise in price in the regions, the analysts of the federal portal “WORLD OF APARTMENTS” concluded, summing up the results in this market in 70 Russian cities with a population of more than 300 thousand people.

Over the past quarter, an impressive rise in price per square meter in construction projects in Sochi (+ 28.7%) and Krasnodar (+ 27.2%). “Prices in Sochi were affected by the official moratorium on construction pending the approval of the new master plan. However, the same deficit is observed in Krasnodar – there are now very few new projects there, so prices have skyrocketed. Add to this the active summer season, which in the Krasnodar Territory traditionally “makes cash”, plus the continuing uncertainty with going abroad – and this is the result, “explains Pavel Lutsenko, General Director of the federal portal” WORLD OF APARTMENTS ”

Murmansk (+ 15.3%), Astrakhan (+ 14.9%), Bryansk (+ 14.8%), Kursk (+ 14.6%), Ulan-Ude ( + 14.5%), Novokuznetsk (+ 14.4%), Omsk (+ 14.3%) and Grozny (+ 13.6%).

In the capitals, where the mortgage “auction of unprecedented generosity” from the state has ended, there is a decline. Over the past three months, Moscow has dropped the price of a “square” by 3.9%, St. Petersburg – by 0.7%. Also fell in price Tula (-3.4%) and Makhachkala (-0.1%).
