Apartments that were previously rented by the day are entering the capital's rental market. They are offered at very low prices, but also for relatively short periods - from 1 to 6 months. So, for 30 thousand rubles, you can rent a one-room apartment on Klimashkina Street, a kilometer from the Garden Ring. And for 40 thousand rubles an apartment of 142 square meters in Khamovniki is offered.
You can rent an apartment much cheaper than usual in Moscow now. True, it will not be possible to settle in such housing for a long time. The rental market in the metropolitan area froze due to quarantine.
“Last week, only 15% of owners were ready to show their homes to potential tenants, and after the introduction of stricter measures, the owners do not want to show at all,” says Oksana Polyakova, deputy director of the apartment rental department at Inkom-Real Estate.
Most of the owners are elderly people who are at risk, and they all the more do not want unnecessary contacts. Meanwhile, requests for rent have remained, even new applications are being received, including from visitors from neighboring countries.
Despite the obvious decrease in the clients' solvency, the number of applications from tenants did not decrease too much, the Miel-Arenda company also notes. “But the number of real transactions has decreased - measures to prevent the spread of the virus make it extremely difficult to show apartments and sign contracts. Transactions that take place are made remotely, ”says Maria Zhukova, Managing Director of Miel-Arenda.
