For English-speakers wanting to move to Russia, house hunting can be frustrating, because all the relevant real-estate websites are written in Russian.
So, to help make the process more pleasant, 38 current home listings have been translated into English below. In Rostov Veliky, house prices currently range from $11,000 to $326,000.

These homes are located in Rostov Veliky, approximately 125 miles north of Moscow. This is not to be confused with Rostov-on-Don, which is over 1000 miles to the south.
I am NOT a real-estate agent, and I do NOT make any commission from the sale of any of these homes.
The original listings often include many photos of both the exterior and interior of the house. In this article, I have only included a single photo for each listing, usually of the front of the house.
The descriptions provided come directly from the original listings. I have not personally verified the accuracy of any of the information.
The original listings quote the prices in Rubles. So in this article, home prices are estimated according to the current exchange rate of 60 Rubles for every 1 US Dollar. As of September 2, 2022, this means a home listed at 12,000,000 Rubles is worth approximately $199,000 USD. But if the exchange rate changes significantly in the future, then the US Dollar price equivalents of these homes would change accordingly. So please check to see the current exchange rate.
The original listings quote floorspace in square meters. So in this article, the number of square feet are estimated, simply multiplying by ten. Fifty square meters are approximately five hundred square feet. One hundred square meters are a little over one thousand square feet.
These translated listings are just meant to be a helpful guide. If you finally decide to purchase a home in Rostov, then it would be advisable to consult current home listings online (in Russian), and to get a professional translator to assist you.
All 38 of these listings are within the city limits of Rostov Veliky. I have not included the numerous listings which are outside of town or in neighboring villages.
