Alexey Popov, the head of the CIAN analytical center, told Izvestia that the rise in prices was influenced by both the preferential mortgage program and the entry of inverters to the market.
The head of the federal real estate company Etazhi Ildar Khusainov told the publication that in a number of Russian regions by the end of 2020, the price of one square meter in the primary real estate market will increase by more than 15%.
