The rise in prices is associated with an increase in the costs of owners to pay for housing and communal services, Izvestia writes.
By the end of next summer, the rental price may increase by another 4-5%, but with the introduction of strict quarantine, prices will remain at the same level, Pavlinova is sure.
Yana Glazunova, General Director of VSN Realty, indicates that if no new restrictive measures are introduced in connection with the coronavirus, then traditional factors, including inflation and rising prices for new buildings, will affect the rise in prices. The jump will not be abrupt; prices, Glazunova specifies, will begin to rise by 0.5% per month. In this case, housing prices will rise up to 10% in Moscow and by 8% in large cities in the regions.
Alexei Popov, head of the CIAN analytical center, said that the real estate market is currently recovering. But the situation still depends on the epidemiological situation. Even if quarantine is not introduced, prices are unlikely to rise significantly in relation to pre-crisis levels, since household incomes are falling, and unemployment, on the contrary, is growing.
Earlier it was reported that the Russian authorities are going to "whitewash" the schematic housing market. So far, deals are being massively concluded in the "gray" zone, without paying taxes to the budget, but the situation may change soon. There are plans to create a state portal for registering transactions for renting apartments.
Note that in April this year, the demand for rental housing in the capital decreased by 76%. At the same time, interest in suburban real estate, on the contrary, increased - tenfold.
