Tbilisi’s residential property sales marginally down in October, on the back of a decline in old apartment transactions on the one hand and a marginal increase in the share of new apartments as compared to September, Trend reports via the TBC Capital’s report.
According to the report, following the transaction growth in September, Tbilisi residential market posted a decrease in October 2020, possibly linked with the elevated riskiness and virus spread in the country.
