The share of investment transactions in the suburban real estate market today does not exceed 5-10%, whereas before the crisis, about 50% of purchases was done with the purpose to invest. The reason - to reduce the profitability of real estate speculation, a small amount of interest and their high initial cost. "Today in the town market investment transactions are virtually no , - said Victor Kovalenko, head of the company " RealEkspo " . - The reason is that , on the one hand , the market is too small bright projects , about which we can confidently say that their value will increase with increasing underway. On the other hand , interesting proposals initially have a rather high price . Even if the market and there are quality properties at an attractive price , they'll go away . "
Larissa Gavrish , CEO financials "Global Capital", estimates the share of investment transactions in suburban real estate market in 10%. According to her, usually private investors to invest in the initial stage of the project , and by the time it is completed ( one and a half to two years ) investment cost increases by about 30%. " The time when investors bought indiscriminately , in the past. Crisis has demonstrated how difficult it is to sell objects that are not focused on the real needs of the buyer. No wonder banks are still cautious to lend to the purchase of suburban real estate bail acquired objects - their liquidity is not so far for credit institutions , as , say, urban housing , "- said the expert.
In turn, the experts believe that the share of investment purchases in the country market is even less - not more than 5% . Investment transactions in the suburban real estate market, as such , there is - in most cases it is rather a way to save money as a bank deposit - says Stroilov . - Net investment buying is most commonly associated with the prospect of improving the social and transport infrastructure .
CEO of real estate agency TWEED Irina Kalinina notes that the elite segment of the suburban market investment transactions are, but their share is also low : "In today's economic situation , with high interest in the suburban lifestyle in general , to invest at an elite market buyers prefer urban property . We can say there are certain " groove " principle : property buyers perceive clearly the more liquid , the closer it is to zero kilometer . In relation to the suburban market - to enjoy the more confidence when it comes to keeping the funds , the closer it is to the Beltway . But still, and for investment purposes , and simply to save money in the real estate market of elite audience mostly chooses urban housing . "
According to Tatyana Rumjantsevoj , before the crisis , in 2006-2007 , about half of the country market transactions were investment and the yield from them could be up to 100%. " These transactions were the result of rapidly growing pre-crisis market overvalued objects. After the crisis, prices adjusted for at least 30 %. Therefore, the bulk of purchases today committed for their own accommodation in a country house "- sums up the expert.
