Kievans go to the suburbs
According to director of marketing company SV Development Vladimir Stepenko, over the past six months, was concluded on 10-15% more transactions compared to last year. "Increasing the number of sales contracts is observed in all localities of the area" - he points out, wrote

With a colleague and CEO agreed real estate agency Alliance-Brock Andrei Sokurov. According to him, from January to June activity on the part of buyers increased by 7%. "Most of our clients are interested in housing in Cherry, Brovary and Borispol" - tells the realtor. And the president of the Union real estate Oleksandr Rubanov adds that demand are also located near the capital Vyshgorod, Irpen and Bucha.

Realtors say that housing in the suburbs get those buyers who can not afford apartments in the capital. Even last year they expect a sharp collapse in property prices, which some analysts predicted, resulting in edinichki in "Khrushchev" had to cost no more than 20-25 thousand dollars. Now, when the forecasts were not realized, most of them are trying to find an apartment to afford it.

Therefore, Kyiv region has become a good alternative. "For 40 thousand dollars, for example, now you can buy a one-room apartment in a number of Kiev located near settlements in the house under the age of 10 years. Find housing in the capital for these funds is difficult," - emphasizes Sokurov. And he adds that now many potential buyers who are working on the right bank, prefer to buy housing in the satellite city on the right side than on the left bank of the metropolitan.

Other agencies report that many buyers tend to move to towns near Kiev in order to improve their living conditions. For example, for 60-65 thousand dollars in capital, you can count on good-quality one-room apartment near the subway, while under Kiev for the same money you can buy a two-bedroom apartment in a nice house.

The proposal increases
Realtors say that the most popular among buyers are two categories of housing. First - apartments in buildings put into operation no more than 5-7 years ago (the area edinichki starts from 40 square meters. M) the repair, in areas with good transport accessibility. Second - the cheapest apartments, including, in more remote locations.

It is worth noting that buyers who are seeking low-cost apartments, there was a decent choice. Representatives of real estate companies say that their base offers apartments in the Kiev region grew over six months of this year compared with last year at least twice.

Despite the fact that the number of transactions has been rising slightly, the pre-crisis sales talk was premature. At the same time, the number of people willing to sell your property is still not diminished.
