In the first half of 2020, the demand from Russians for the purchase of real estate for rent or for subsequent resale increased by 42 percent compared to the same period in 2019. Investment interest peaked in the first two months of this year.
This is stated in the materials of the Garnet company received by the editorial board of "Lenta.ru".
Russians literally rushed to invest in real estate, analysts say. At the same time, the peak of investment interest fell on the first two months of this year. “Real estate remains the most reliable asset. If in the short term prices may decrease slightly, then in the long term square meters are steadily becoming more expensive. In addition, the growth was catalyzed by the key rate cut, which led to a decrease in the profitability of bank deposits, ”explains Garnet.
According to experts, investing in real estate of Russians is also stimulated by new taxes on income on bank deposits and the fact that the deposit insurance system guarantees the safety of amounts of no more than 1.4 million rubles.
In April, Russians were advised against investing in square meters. According to analysts, investing in real estate in Russia is currently possible only for your own peace of mind, the financial feasibility of such investments is questionable.
