Kharkov developers have discussed a number of topical issues of construction, in particular, there was a significant increase in prices for basic building materials: armature - by 88%, cement - 12%, diesel fuel - by 93%, blocks of porous concrete - 25%, gravel - 10%. Also increased the prices of materials and equipment imported production: plastic windows, plumbing, electrical, finishing materials and elevators. The share of the cost of construction materials is about 50%. The result was the growth of the cost of housing by 25-30%. The increase in value of real estate leads to a sharp drop in demand and construction companies will not compensate for losses due to home buyers.
