Russian Buyers of International Properties in 2019 - 2020
March 04, 2020

Hi Everyone,

Russian Buyers of International Properties in 2019 - 2020

A popular Russian real estate portal Prian published a report on the Russian buyers' behavior in 2019 and the prognosis for 2020. Here's a short summary for you in English.


- 2019 was a better year than any of the last five (by the numbers of the closed deals and by the all over satisfaction of the market dealers who worked with Russian, Ukrainian, Kazakh, Azerbaijani, and other Russian-speaking international real estate buyers)

- Internet traffic of potential Russian-speaking buyers looking for properties abroad has grown by 30% in 2019

- Shortage of international commercial properties for sale advertised in Russian while the Russian buyers' interest is high

- Immigration through purchasing real estate is also on the radar of the Russian-speaking buyers (more than 50% of them are interested)

- International real estate exhibitions in Moscow were a big success in 2019 (by the growing numbers of exponents and visitors in comparison with the five previous years)

- 2020 prediction is stability of the Russian buying market (made before the coronavirus outbreak in China and the latest spreading of the disease to other countries… now what?)

- Some top countries in demand by the Russian-speaking buyers were discussed in details in the report, but I’ll omit that part as not so much interesting for readers of this newsletter from various countries of the world. You are interested only in the Russian buyers of your own country's properties, right? Email me your specific questions then.

To your best business success,
