The Russians did not like one type of mortgage.
“Kommersant”: the share of priority mortgages issued in Russia decreased in August
In August 2022, Russians did not like prime mortgages – their share in the total issuance of home loans fell to 32 percent. Real estate experts came to this conclusion, Kommersant writes.
According to JSC Dom.RF, the share of state-supported housing loans has decreased every month since May 2022, when it was 48 percent of loans issued in a month. In total, about 42,000 preferential loans worth 221.9 billion rubles were issued in August; In economic terms, the result was the highest since the beginning of 2021. At the same time, in the segment of state-supported programs, 7 percent of prime mortgages for new construction continue – their share was more than 60 percent. Amount and number of loans.
According to Dom.RF analysts, by the end of 2022, more than 460,000 loans totaling 2.2-2.3 trillion rubles will be issued under the priority program. According to the results of the first eight months, 283,000 state-backed loans totaling 1.2 trillion rubles have already been issued.
According to Anton Pavlov, Vice Chairman of the Absolut Bank Board, a significant part of the demand for prime mortgages has already been realized. “But it is premature to say that it is over. Now Tuesday’s mortgage market is recovering. On the one hand, it will take back part of the demand. On the other hand, apartment sellers are returning to the market, most of them will invest the proceeds from the sale in the purchase of new real estate, even under the state program,” the expert explained.
Pavlov added that the provision of housing in Russia is at a low level: about 50 percent of households need to improve their living conditions. In this regard, the expert opines that government programs have a large potential audience. However, due to stagnant incomes and rising property prices, most households cannot afford a mortgage.
Another reason for the decline in demand for priority mortgage programs, according to Rusipoteka’s chief expert, is that the share of apartment buyers as an investment has decreased significantly.
Earlier, the head of the Central Bank of Russia, Elvira Nabiulina, warned Russians about the risks of near-zero mortgage rates. According to her, such offers are a marketing gimmick and designed to mislead borrowers.
