Russians can no longer keep their homes in Finland and get rid of them, but it is not always possible to sell for the desired price. This July 27 wrote Yle.
Built ten years ago and earlier dachas are put up for sale, because of the weak ruble exchange, house maintenance has become more expensive. According to real estate agencies, Russians also get rid of spacious cottages with an area of 200 and even 300 squares, in which many funds were invested. The average price range is 100 thousand – 150 thousand euros.
However, selling a dacha is not so simple. According to the agents, for the Russians the market situation is problematic, as for some time in Finland there has been a decline in the level of property prices.
The representative of the agency Kiinteistömaailma in Savonlinna Seppo Kayrikko states: “Russians are giving up their property in Finland.” At the same time, he notes, they are so bullying prices that in every second case they can not sell real estate.
“Sometimes the price is so high that we do not take objects for sale,” says Nina Tiaenen from the Lappeenranta real estate agency Karjala.
According to the director of the agency In and Out Ensio Pulkkinen, Finns are not eager to buy dachas of Russians, because they do not trust the quality of finishing works and repairs. They are afraid that they will not be able to find a former master if there are any problems in the house.
