Commenting on the results for January 2024, Etalon Group CEO Gennadiy Shcherbina said:

“Despite the challenging environment because of the high key rate, our sales in January beat the market and our own targets. The value of new contracts quadrupled year-on-year and, contrary to seasonal trends, exceeded the monthly average from the second half of last year by 5%. We enjoyed a severalfold increase in housing sales in regional markets and in our largest Moscow projects.

“Our strong results at the beginning of the year were driven by regional diversification, the variety of housing classes on offer and a comprehensive set of government mortgage subsidy programmes. We see potential in maintaining a diversified portfolio and in further regional expansion.”
