Realtors of the Russian capital note a drop in demand for affordable secondary apartments – from 5 to 10 million rubles. This is stated in the materials of the analysts of the company “INCOM-Real Estate” (available to the publisher).Since the beginning of 2019, the share of advances made for such apartments has decreased in total from 60 to 52 percent., The company notes, while advances for more expensive apartments, on the contrary, began to be paid more often. Experts explain this dynamics by a decrease in the solvency of the population, combined with a change in the supply structure.“A certain share of lots falls into the“ 5 to 10 million ”group, but has characteristics that are unattractive for consumers: outdated housing stock, worn out communications, remoteness from metro stations, etc. Even with a large number of apartments with such a price tag – and this is a third of the total supply on the secondary – buyers often cannot choose the option that suits them, ”explained Dmitry Taganov, head of the analytical center INCOM Real Estate.The consequence of this situation, according to the expert, should be the formation of pent-up demand for apartments with good consumer characteristics that fall into the budget from 5 to 10 million rubles. Part of the potential audience may postpone the purchase, hoping to accumulate more money and move to another price segment of the market.Earlier it was reported about a significant amount of apartments in Moscow houses that entered the secondary market and fell into the renovation program of an outdated housing stock. According to statistics from CIAN analysts, a sharp increase in such a proposal began in May 2019.
