Property in Ukraine, trends.

Property in Ukraine, trends. Prices for real estate in Kiev region are looking strong, according to Finance.ua. This is in sharp contrast with 10-15% drop in demand for units in the city of Kiev (Kyiv).

Suburban areas seem to start looking more attractive for investment, as compared to city flats. The trend for moving out of the city into more spacious low density accommodation is to continue, experts predict.

Prices for real estate in Kiev region remained stable in the first quarter of 2019

In January-March 2019 property house and unit values in the suburban region of the capital didn’t show signs of movement, according the Vladislav Kononov, the managing partner of AVM Development Group.

Cost of buying properties varied within 1%. Developers didn’t lift or drop prices.

Even within the final stage of the construction when prices often jump on average about 5%, no corrections occurred in the first quarter of 2019. The demand remained solid, as opposed to the Kiev city, where fewer units were sold and demand for new stock dropped.

Demand for low density properties in suburban areas

Townhouses and houses in Kiev (Kyiv) region recorded 1.5-2% growth in prices, as well as land, within the first three months of the year.

Khodosovka, Chabany, Gatnoe, Schastlivoe were the areas with the highest growth of house values.

Experts predict possible sharp growth near recreational zones within 10 km from Kiev. Possible growth predicted is up to 5% in 2019. For the local real estate market, which saw huge drops in values following 2014, it’s a lot. Even the uncertainly of looming presidential elections on 31 March didn’t stop the buyers.

Traditionally, Ukrainians were oriented on purchasing apartments (flats) as close to the city centre as possible. Owning a house has never been a goal for locals, who were dreaming of buying an apartment, hopefully a 3-room (analogue of 2-bedroom) one, which was seen as luxury. But now houses and townhouses in the region are becoming more popular, with property values reflecting new trends.

Instead of owning a small flat in the metropolis and a small block of land (dacha) in the country, to grow vegetables and berries, locals start to put value on house ownership, in the style to which Americans are accustomed to.

Actually this is said to be a positive trend since densely populated urban areas are not always the best places for families. Recent changes reflected in movement to suburban areas might be explained by the fact that families might have a better opportunity to enjoy their life and spend quality time with all the members.
However, I wouldn’t like to see the prices of houses skyrocket due to such changes as it is supposed to discourage people from owning a property in regions. Why not commute to the city if the transport system is already very developed?

Many Ukrainians want to buy their own flat. Kiev is a wonderful city. The price of apartments in Kiev should not be low, it is a wonderful place to live and relax, when political relationship with the Russian Federation will be adjusted, real estate in Kiev will rise in price again. Many peoples do not want to leave Ukraine because utilities in Russia are much more expensive

People started to value the health they have. Most of my once being city relatives changed their lifestyle and moved to the suburban: fresh air, gardens, peace and quiet…what can be better? Especially if you have a big family. No wonder the prices increased.

Real estate in Kiev is expensive, because it is still the capital of Ukraine, the question is how to get to work or school. Is it better to still buy an apartment and invest the money than soprnd it on car repairs and gasoline when people will live outside the city

The population of cities is growing, and citizens from all over the country come to the capital. As a rule, in such a place it becomes too noisy, so many people prefer to buy property outside the city, and live in peace and quiet. In any case, many have cars, and getting to places of work or study is not difficult now.

For many, living in the suburbs is more convenient and comfortable. This applies not only to the price but also comfort. Many people prefer a quieter and more comfortable place to live, instead of living in the city center. I’ve lived in the suburbs for years. Of course, I also love big cities, but I have never had a desire to live here.
