Determined the best city for the purchase of housing in Russia 

Saratov took the first place in the rating of Russian cities, where it is most profitable to acquire residential real estate for the purpose of renting. The list, compiled by the specialists of the portal “World of apartments”, is available to the editorial staff of “”.
An apartment in Saratov pays off on average for 12 years, bringing the owner an income of 8.4 percent per annum, analysts calculated. For simplicity and convenience of calculations, it was assumed that housing is rented all year round without interruption. The cost of repairs, taxes, and so on are not taken into account, as well as inflation, additional income from placing the money obtained in the bank and other items of expenditure and income.
The second place in terms of rental income is Simferopol, where the average apartment pays off for 13 years (the yield is 7.9 percent per annum). Also, good performance in housing in Astrakhan, Krasnodar, Nizhny Tagil, Chelyabinsk and Rostov-on-Don: local apartments bring owners from 7.3 to 7.6 percent per annum, paying for 13-14 years.
Moscow and St. Petersburg due to high real estate prices entered the top ten anti-leaders rating: housing profitability in the two capitals is 4.5-4.6 percent, and buyers have to wait 22 years to wait until it “breaks”.
The worst performance – in Yakutsk. There, the rentiers receive an income of 3.8 percent per annum from rental housing and return their investments only after 26 years. It is also unprofitable to buy apartments for rent in Vladivostok, Chita, Izhevsk and Irkutsk: the yield in these cities is 4-4.4 percent, the payback period is 23-25 ​​years.
On average, rented apartments in major Russian cities pay for themselves for 18 years, their yield is 5.6 percent per annum, according to the materials provided.
“It goes without saying that the calculations are very averaged. In the most profitable city of our list, you can buy an apartment in an unclaimed place by tenants or put it at an unsuccessful price in the rental market, and then the investor will receive much lower than the average profitability, – experts say. “And vice versa, in the city from the tail of the rating, in the same Moscow, you can find housing with such a potential price-rent ratio that it will be super profitable and will successfully feed its owner for many years.”
Earlier in July, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said that it was necessary to develop a rental market in Russia. He pointed out that rent is widespread in countries with developed economies.
