In the first two months of 2020, developers — legal entities put into operation 128 thousand square meters of housing. It is 114.1% higher than in the same period last year.
As for loan agreements with developers using escrow accounts, Bashkiria is in seventh place among the regions of the Volga Federal District. The Bank of Russia reports such data at the beginning of March.
Recall that the Head of Bashkortostan Radiy Khabirov announced that the authorities should participate in the project financing of housing construction, after hearing reports from developers and credit organizations on the transition to a new form of construction financing.
Since July 1 of last year, raising funds from participants in shared construction is allowed only with the use of escrow accounts. According to the new model, financing is carried out at the expense of a loan established by the bank and the developer’s own funds. Funds for escrow accounts are available to the developer only after the construction is completed.
