The likelihood of a collapse in housing prices in Russia is estimated

The average level of prices for secondary real estate in Russia is already very high and does not correspond to the financial capabilities of many potential buyers, said market participants interviewed by But none of them promise a collapse in price tags.

Firstly, experts say, mortgage rates remain acceptable, and secondly, there is a shortage of high-quality supply, and this supports the demand for “secondary housing”. “According to my preliminary forecasts, the average price indicators on the secondary housing market in Moscow will increase until the end of 2021, but not significantly,” promised Elena Mishchenko, head of the city real estate department at NDV-Supermarket Real Estate.

Est-a-Tet expects that “the market will move within the standard price fluctuations – within 5 percent”, without specifying the direction of movement. Director of the department of the secondary market “INKOM-Real Estate” Sergei Shloma suggested that housing “will definitely not rise in price, this is the ceiling.” According to him, the process of price reduction is still hampered only by the lack of liquid supply on the market. Valery Letenkov from the Agency for Investment in Moscow Real Estate considers it highly probable that prices for the “secondary housing” will decrease in the context of real transactions.
