Any investor in Russian real estate projects tries to secure their investments. Basically, these include ordinary people of our country who want to receive a personal corner of their living space for their hard-earned savings. Information on the Internet about companies offering their services for the sale of real estate, or more precisely, about companies engaged in the construction of new areas from scratch, can be found completely different: there are advertising projects where you can find the data exposed by the developers themselves.
You can also find special sites where residents of St. Petersburg express their personal opinion on the quality of the services provided by these companies. We believe that the most important factors among the abundance of information available to them are the data on the number of proposed housing complexes under construction, the speed of construction work and the quality of the final result. Given these data, we compiled a rating of St. Petersburg developers - the most successful and in demand, working in the Northern capital of our country. We hope the information provided will be informative and useful for you.
Quality, price, and speed of construction: who leads among developers in St. Petersburg?

In the rating of the best developers of St. Petersburg in 2017 according to the indicators of "price-quality", several companies can be attributed:

Separately, it is worth mentioning our own standard of interior decoration of apartments mentioned above in the reliability rating of developers of St. Petersburg. These three firms have certain standards of interior decoration, similar to each other and different from other firms:

The opinion of people who took the opportunity to purchase apartments from the main ones in the rating of St. Petersburg developers is rather ambiguous. Like any other company in the post-Soviet space, the service of providing services even in such an expensive business area as a mortgage, suffers greatly: there are a number of projects where top home builders could delay their obligations for several months or even years.
However, compared with other companies, the annoying turmoil of these firms is minimal. Also, most buyers appreciated the quality of cooperation: managers not only clarify the claims of their customers, they help to resolve these issues as soon as possible. Therefore, if you are interested in the possibility of acquiring your own home, it is best to use the services of the above companies for this purpose.
