Russian investors want to fly
September 01, 2020

Hi Everyone,

Russian investors want to fly

The most influential Russian business newspaper Kommersant published an article on some consequences of the coronavirus pandemic in terms of demand for international properties from the potential Russian buyers of real estate.

There are 2 major trends featured in the article:

- As traveling is often restricted between the countries, the Russian investors are more willing than ever before to obtain a second passport or residency permit of another country - to be able to travel the world more freely.

During the recent pandemic the Russian demand for foreign properties has grown up to 20%. Cyprus, Spain and Caribbean countries that offer citizenship or residency permits in return for real estate investments are among the most requested.

- The second attractive for the Russian investors piece of the recent real estate world-wide landscape is a possibility to purchase properties with a significant discount from those sellers who could not cope with the pandemic hardship.

Italy may be considered a leader of this trend as one can find properties for sale there with a deep discount.

So, today you have learned what the Russian buyers most of all want now - for using in your property for sale presentation (if any of the two trends applies to you of course).

To your best business success,
