In Russia, the Demand for Mortgages Decreased
OREANDA-NEWS Experts at the Financial University under the government found that Russians began to take mortgages and bank deposits less often, they came to this conclusion after analyzing a population survey conducted in the spring and summer of 2019 in cities with a population of over 250 thousand people.
Only 6% of residents of such cities are studying the possibility of obtaining a loan in the next 2-3 months, 1.9% of families are interested in mortgage loans, 1.5% are considering the possibility of taking a car loan, Rossiyskaya Gazeta reports with reference to the study.
It is noted that 2% are considering the possibility of opening a deposit to place savings.
Director of the Institute of Social and Economic Research at the University of Finance Alexey Zubets believes that the population is losing interest in such financial instruments.
In July, Deputy Finance Minister Alexei Moiseev said that Russia is not in danger of a mortgage crisis similar to what happened in the United States.
