RBC: In Moscow and St. Petersburg, demand for preferential mortgages fell sharply in January

In January of this year, in regions of the Russian Federation with expensive housing, residents began to sharply refuse preferential mortgages. The demand for this type of housing loan declined most seriously in Moscow and St. Petersburg. RBC shares the relevant information.

According to information from journalists, in January, the number of applications for preferential mortgages in Moscow decreased by 36.2% year-on-year, while in St. Petersburg the decrease was 28.9%. Krasnodar was also included in the top three. In this region, the number of calls was lower by 16.6%. At the same time, in Russia as a whole, the number of applications for preferential mortgages, the rate of which is 8% for new buildings, increased by 7% during the year.

According to data provided by Rosstat, Moscow and St. Petersburg are the Russian regions where housing is becoming the most expensive. During the third quarter of last year, a square meter in new buildings in these cities was estimated at 342.9 thousand and 213.4 thousand rubles, respectively. In addition, in the Krasnodar Territory, the “square” also turned out to be expensive. Its cost was 131.2 thousand rubles.

“The higher the cost per square meter in the region, the less affordable it becomes to purchase a new building under the state program due to the increase in the size of the down payment,” said Yana Glazunova, general director of the real estate agency VSN Group, on this issue.

Previously Public News Service reportedthat Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation Marat Khusnullin said that the state program “Family Mortgage” will be extended, and there are also plans to help organize the issuance of mortgages in the Far East, Donbass and Novorossia.
