Accommodation in the elemental building of several parameters lost their homes in the cottage communities. In the last book attracted a secured perimeter, total recreational area (children, sports grounds, beaches, marinas, etc.), central issues of engineering, socially homogeneous environment.

Builders are not afraid to start construction of cottages in a strictly prescribed style: a lack of buyers was not as stylish project essentially won in the eyes of customers.
The crisis dramatically changed the alignment of preferences. Built to house a cottage communities were overly expensive products for clients with "post-crisis" purse. Developers reduce the requests below cost can not - for them it is a direct path to ruin, it's better to wait until the market recovers and prices return to the previous level.
By contrast, private entrepreneurs can display much more flexibility. Although, of course, fun is it and does not deliver.
Buyers in the market is, but they may be interested in a subject with a substantial discount. Such deals often pass by real estate firms: an agent is usually not empowered to grant the buyer the seller is so serious discounts and consistently upholding the position of the client, the de facto prevents a transaction.
