Changes in prices of property for sale in Kazakhstan depend on the economic factors of the demand. When considering the trends of these factors, prices of property for sale in Kazakhstan will not show any particular changes in 2018. In Almaty, prices will remain at the same level or show a slight increase due to buyers who have previously delayed their decision to buy properties.
The number of transactions in Kazakhstan for the period from January to November 2017 increased by 28.6% compared to the same period of 2016.
In 2018, demand will remain at a high level, but it is much more important for this question to be solvent. Only if the demand is solvent will there be further positive movements.

Previously, Kazakhstan experienced a sharp decline in the real estate market due to adverse external conditions. The devaluation of the national currency, together with a decrease in real wages and purchasing power, has affected the demand side, while a slight over-investment and a high exposure to currency risks have shocked the offer.
