    Abstrcat. In this work, the features and factors of solvent demand of the population in the Moscow residential real estate market are considered. The analysis of the dynamics of the housing mortgage credit market in Moscow was performed for a number of indicators: weighted average rates of the housing mortgage credits, the number and weighted average term of the mortgage credits, the cost of apartments, etc. The minimum income level of the population required to the housing purchase with their own and borrowed funds was estimated, and the limiting factors of applying the approved methodology for determining the level of the "Housing affordability for Moscow" were identified. According to this methodology, housing affordability level is defined as the proportion of the population whose monthly income exceeds the minimum income required to buy a home (according to data on the distribution of the population by average per capita monetary income). The article concludes that over the past three years, Moscow has developed a tendency to reduce effective demand and housing affordability, which is currently aggravated by the crisis processes in the country's economy, rising housing prices and a reduction in real incomes. As a result, recommendations are given to reduce the rate of falling housing affordability in the capital.
