When buying an apartment, it is not easy to choose from a variety of offers on the market. Real estate in Belarus is now expanding more to the suburbs and to regional towns. Now the policy of building new houses in Minsk can be called restrictive with the number of newly-erected buildings dropping year by year.
Today, the perspective for the future is that Minsk should be kept clean and green as it is now, and not busy, noisy, polluted and overcrowded. Both the government and the residents do not want Minsk to turn into a huge megalopolis with no fresh air to breath. That’s why the current plan is to develop and promote property possession in other Belarussian towns. As for Minsk, where the majority of the workforce comes to, it is planned to create satellite cities in which it will be more convenient for people to live and work or their route to work, especially to high tech parks won’t take long.
Property in Belarus is generally of two types either public or private, although some variations exist. To buy a property of their own ordinary people usually take a loan from the bank. The government also takes care of large families who contribute to population growth in the country.
As a rule, it takes approximately 2 weeks to prepare all the documents to buy a flat or a house from its previous owner. The peaks of consumer demand for real estate in Belarus are before Christmas and New Year as people want to step into a new period of their life or to make a great present to their nearest and dearest.
Every family in Belarus is striving hard to have a property of its own, as renting a flat is neither cheap nor convenient, as it is still not your home, and Belarussians place family, family ties and comfort on the 1st place in their lives.
