Elite Real Estate Sales Growth in Moscow Region

Premium real estate sales in the Moscow Region grew 32 percent in the first six months of 2015, an improvement from the same period last year, Gazeta.ru reported earlier this month, citing a press release from Point Estate real estate agency.

Sixty-five percent of all properties sold were cottages, the report said. Another 18 percent were townhouses, 13 percent were land spots and 4 percent duplexes. On average, buyers were willing to pay $1.7 million for a cottage, a price drop of 30 percent from six months ago.

“The main factor that determined growth of the demand was developers offering many discounts and special conditions [for potential buyers],” Irina Kalinina, managing partner of the agency, was cited in the press release as saying. “Properties denominated in rubles sold better than others,” she added.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
