Apartment prices in Ukraine have been steadily decreasing. In regional centers, the prices for real estate now start at $8,000 per unit and go up to 2-3 hundred thousand US dollars in Kiev for luxury apartments.
How much does an apartment cost in Ukraine?
In 2017 real estate prices in Ukraine dropped by 10-15% as compared to the previous year. This decrease began in 2008 and by 2014 the cost of housing was declining at a rate of 2% per month.
Realtor Alexander Grishko believes that over the past 10 years property prices dropped by 3 times. Grishko named several reasons: hryvnia devaluation, decline in the purchasing power of Ukrainians and the conflict in the East with separatists. At the same time, experts believe that in 2018 prices for apartments in Ukraine are unlikely to grow. The prices may drop by approximately 10%, but the situation is not going to be critical, Finance.ua reports.
