Krasnodar, 29 January – Yug Times. Analysts of GoldenBrown Sochi have reportedly come to a conclusion that in 2020 Muscovites and dwellers of St. Petersburg will strengthen their positions in the housing estate market of Sochi. Currently every second deal in Russia’s Olympic capital is struck by clients who came from either of the two biggest Russian cities.
“Sochi’s convenient location – just a two-hour flight from Moscow – makes it attractive for Muscovites,” Tatiana Burlakovskaya, GoldenBrown Sochi General Director says. “It’s a rouble area beside sea with a very comfortable climate. And the [nearby] resorts like Krasnaya Poliana make this direction interesting round the year.”
According to estate agents, Siberia and the Urals are other Russian regions whose inhabitants like to buy realty in Sochi. At the same time, the share of foreign buyers remains very low. “If we are to describe a buyer’s portrait, it is mostly family with kids ready to relocate here who buy realty in Sochi,” Burlakovskaya recounts. “It is explained by a rich infrastructure.” The main aims of such purchases are to live there themselves and to hire out, most often on a daily basis. The Imereti lowlands and the Olympic park neighbourhood have lately become especially popular among the clients.
However, some sale offers in Sochi may really blow your mind. Say, a one-room flat in Khosta district costs 6.3 million roubles; in the central part of the city – 8.5 million roubles; and in the Imereti lowlands – 9.5 million roubles.
Analysts believe that the prices for realty in Sochi will continue to grow – due to the demand caused by the local authority’s efforts aimed at attracting holidaymakers to the city, who after their first visit start thinking about relocating from their cold regions into the city with a warm and soft climate.
