Tallinn property transactions fell in October in comparison with the previous month, according to Tõnu Toompark’s blog Adaur.ee (available in Estonian only).
Citing figures compiled by Tallinn real estate agents 1Partner Kinnisvara, transactions fell by 12 per cent, from a figure of 482 million Kroons (c. 30.8 million Euros) in September to 423 million Kroons (c. 27 million Euros) in October. 1Partner’s executive director Martin Vahteri said that activity was particularly noteworthy in the Vanalinn (Old Town) and City Centre areas, where the highest real estate prices are generally to be found. He further remarked that a significant proportion of transactions involved overseas nationals, most notably Finns and Russians. 17 per cent of transactions, a total of 112 objects, comprised foreign investors, he said.
