In the end, those potential buyers who simply drove away from the capital region to other countries and regions joined by those who have been in Moscow, but was in no hurry to get out of the house. "
Thus, this category of potential buyers has formed a "plan" pent-up demand, the authors of the study. After the end of hot period, the activity of consumers has increased almost instantaneously and almost doubled. On the last week of August the interest of potential buyers somewhat weakened (which, inter alia, resulted from concerns about the upcoming September 1), but still was 10% higher than in the "hot" first half of the month. "Such a rapid change in August, is unlikely to" undo "a seasonal increase in activity in September - added Severinenko. - The fact that early in the second half of August was implemented pent-up demand, formed due to the weather. In September of the same buyers will come to market, missing in the capital during the summer months. "
