Furthermore, due to the quantity of houses and flats built 30-40 years ago, people are now looking to upgrade to more modern homes, and not just in Tallinn, but these trends have been spreading throughout the country gaining independence from Russia and joining the EU. Although price increases and demand are set to continue, local lending banks have reportedly assured the central bank that they will not...
