"If the hryvnia will be 8.7 UAH / USD. and above, the value of real estate in the national currency will rise in proportion to within a few months . If we talk about luxury real estate , then , in my opinion , prices are still too high. Bargaining is within 15% , and demand is not more than 5 % of the total number of transactions. Therefore, the owners of this property does not make sense to increase the cost , even if the dollar will cost UAH 9 , because the number of buyers "elitki" the growth of its prices will not increase , "- said Kostecki .

"The owners of rental apartments will wait until the rate will stabilize and will not jump every day. And when all is stabilized tenants " will adjust " the rent under a dollar . In the U.S. the price will remain the same, and in the national currency will increase , "- said the expert.
He also noted that currency fluctuations have affected the real estate market right now - the number of proposals and rental and for sale has declined . In particular, for sale on the secondary market in Kiev in early February 22-25 thousand apartments were offered , while in December 2013 for sale in the capital was billed more than 30 thousand apartments .
" Apartment owners took the fence . Because now you can sell the apartment and thus strongly too cheap . Same with renting : as lease is not for one month, and at least a year , then it is very difficult to prove that the cost of the lessee need to improve , "- said Kostecki .
The expert noted that predict the consequences of the introduction of new rules by the National Bank currency purchase on the real estate market is still too early .
