The publication published by Cushman & Wakefield Georgia reads, that the state subsidy program provided a much-needed boost to the real estate market, but the program finished in 2020. However, the program is no longer active in 2021. During the last few weeks of 2020, developers had been openly asking for the government to continue subsidizing interest on mortgages into 2021 as well, however, no budgetary provision has been made for such a decision.
Cushman & Wakefield Georgia considers that the first quarter of 2021 at least will be characterized by downward tendencies.
