Which apartment is more profitable to take: with or without finishing
Related article: PRIMARY AND SECONDARY HOUSING: WHAT IS BETTER?The lion's share of apartments in Ukrainian new buildings is sold without finishing (about 75%), since the demand for them is still much higher because of the relatively low cost. In fact, it is a box with concrete walls, it is impossible to live here with all the desire. Every year more and more customers are interested in the ready-made version, which is caused by a decrease in the population's solvency. But it should be understood that this is a housing economy and comfort class. At the same time in business and elite-class houses, the situation is different, developers offer options without finishing, as it is difficult to predict what the client wants.
Expensive pleasure: for what to pay?
Buying an apartment without finishing, you get bare walls. Without fail, there will be entrance doors, plastic windows and a glazed loggia. Sometimes objects come on sale even without interroom partitions, plumbing (sewerage and water supply will be closed with plugs). Repair will cost an average of 30% of the cost of housing. Therefore, those who plan to immediately enter, it is worth thinking about buying an apartment with decoration, and, with an equipped bathroom, kitchen. In this case, the owners of real estate will remain to buy, roughly speaking, a closet, a bed and a sofa.
Repair yourself: expensive and not so profitable already
The owner can buy an apartment without finishing, make repairs on his own, using inexpensive materials, then rent it out for thousands of 40-50. On average, it takes about 6 months to bring housing in order. If he had purchased a ready option and immediately found tenants, for half a year he would have earned 300 thousand rubles. Plus, he will spend the same amount on materials. Thus, he loses 600 thousand rubles. The same applies to those who rent their own apartment and repair an apartment.
Why are afraid to buy flats with finishing
Many potential buyers are questioned by the quality of the finishes and materials used. It should be understood that the developer offers such apartments not in order to make money on the buyers. In fact, the profit here will be minimal, rather it is done to stimulate interest in the object. Often, such a property is made quite good discounts.
