According to the recent statistics released by the Russian Statistic Committee, the volume of construction of real estate for private use grew by 2.4 per cent YOY during quarter one, 2009. Total construction of new flats reached 114.4 thousand that equates to 10.4 million sq. m. across the Russian Federation.

Throughout the first quarter of 2009, the results demonstrate growth in absolute terms, but in contrast the growth of real estate construction is decelerating. The reduced pace of construction growth in Tumen, Bashkir, Rostov and Krasnodar regions saw a reduction of 20.1, 20, 11.3 and 1.6 per cent respectfully.

Such decline reflects on the general cooling of the Russian economy and worsening consumer expectations. As Russians feel more vulnerable to the economic crisis, private investments into real estate are expected to reduce further in 2009.

Despite a 2009 negative forecast for the overall construction market in Russia, in the first quarter, construction of the real estate from private investments (savings + mortgages) increased by 2.6 per cent compared to the same period in 2008.
