March 01, 2023

Hi Everyone,

Russian Buyers of Real Estate in Top Popular 30 countries

The most visited Russian real estate portal for international properties Prian has published the traditional end-of-the year rating of countries where Russian buyers were looking for properties on the portal.

The Russian buyers come to the portal from Russia (about 50%), also from Kazakhstan, Ukraine, Belorussia, Israel, Germany and some other countries where Russians live.

Over the last year the demand for international properties from the Russian buyers has grown approximately two times in comparison with the previous year as a result of the pandemic coming to an end.

The major interest is being shown for the countries with easy-to-cross-borders and allowing foreigners to stay for some time under certain conditions.

The leader of the rating is definitely Turkey which has been the most popular among the Russian buyers since 2020.
