Most Russians see buying a home as a great investment.

Most Russians believe that buying real estate is the best investment. This became known from a survey conducted by specialists from Otkritie Bank together with IC Rosgosstrakh.

Thus, 62% of Russians surveyed consider financial investments in housing a good investment option. They justify their answer by the fact that the price of real estate continues to grow. By the way, in 2022, 76% of Russians considered such investments justified.

Moreover, according to the results of the survey, it turned out that 65% of respondents buy apartments for rent. At the same time, 42% of respondents are wary of real estate investments: according to them, the payback period for these investments is too long.

Thanks to the survey of Otkritie Bank, it also turned out that about a third of Russians plan to buy housing in the near future. Among them, 16% want to improve their living conditions, 17% buy a property to move, 14% want to save money and 42% plan to rent accommodation for additional income.

It is noted that during the year, the share of Russians considering the acquisition of real estate as a means of investing money increased by 6%.

Only 17% of respondents have the full amount needed to buy a house or apartment. Others expect to take out a mortgage, a consumer loan or borrow money from friends.

Recall that earlier “The Eastern Herald in Murmansk” said that the average age of an employee in the Kola Arctic was just over 41 years old.
