At the same time, the official said, to the desired 6-7 percent is still very far away. And the solution to this problem depends not only on the general economic situation in the country.

Recall that a grand revival, which the domestic real estate market is expected to fall, did not happen. Transactions on sale and purchase of apartments continues to be the same low intensity mode, and price fluctuations are within 1 percent. Revitalize the market could resume mortgage, but, of course. not on the current conditions, which experts have long been dubbed "draconian". For example, the average real rate on mortgage loans on its "primary" is 21-22 percent per annum.
According to experts, at such rates flat out "gold", and borrowers are not objectively able to maintain such expensive loans. Say that lending has resumed, it is possible not earlier than the lending rate will be if not mythical 6-7 percent, but at least 15-16 per cent per annum.
