Azerbaijan, Baku, Jan. 25 / Trend U.Ismayilova /

The average price for 100 square meters of land increased by 1.2 percent from $14,243 to $14,413 in Azerbaijan in December, NGO Property Market Participants said. 

The main reason for the rising prices is the limited number of free sites in the city center, as well as the excess supply over actual demand. The demand for land increased due to the growth of the construction pace in the first zone of the city.

An increase in prices by 1.1 and 0.1 percent was observed in the first and second zones of the city and a decline of 0.2 and 0.3 percent in the third and fourth zone of the city, respectively.

The summary table shows the change in prices in the zones of the city:
