Pros and cons of a country house

There are cases that are buying homes for vremennogOh, and for permanent residence. The farther away from the town house is located, the greater the likelihood of its use as a summer residence. Homes in the area 20 km from Kiev, is generally used for permanent residence.

Living in the house has several advantages: it is almost always a large area, own the land. If it is a modern town, there is well-organized security, that is, children can go for a walk through the town that the city is now almost unthinkable. But the utilities, of course, will be higher.

But do not forget that the house needs attention of their owners. Residents of suburban houses are faced with such troubles, which knows no city dweller: from snow removal and ending suddenly chipped plaster on the facade. Not everyone is ready to take on this responsibility. "Rarely, but still there are cases when the client understands that the countryside - it was not his and was relieved to be returned to Kyiv, - said Victor Kovalenko. - A country house turns into a favorite summer residence. "

Hot and cold water

As for water, you need to understand that in hot and cold water enters the apartment centrally, from urban CHP. Outside the city the same centralized communication is not always necessary, and often the water is heated directly in a house with a gas or electric boiler.

"The price of water use depends on the area, as well as the type of system, - said Alla Zhabyuk - Sales Director, CG," Solar Valley ". - If a central water supply, connected to any locality, then the payment will be on regional fare, if water obscheposelkovy, tariffs will have internal settlement. As a rule, in any case, water tariffs in a country house is more expensive than in Kiev. "

However, Bashy, Natalia, Head of Marketing KG "Maetok" notes that in economy class projects and projects with the number of houses more than 100 - the cost of water will be the same as in Kiev.

ICuse of water is usually slightly more expensive business-class projects, where the degree of water purification is much better. It should be noted that in almost all organized cottage communities, developers build their own wells and water intake sites.

Top Destinations

According to Viktor Kovalenko, "the most popular trends today - it's Obukhov, Zhitomir, Odessa and Vyshgorod. The greatest number of transactions performed at a distance of 10-30 km from Kiev. The most popular segment continues to be economy class."

"Luxury real estate focused on the traditional elite Obukhov direction, namely the Old and New Obukhovskie tracks, which, according to our observations today took the first place, - said Victor Kovalenko.


Despite all of these requests, the demand structure has changed dramatically in recent years. According to Victor Kovalenko, the most popular format for stay at home in a range of up to $ 80 thousand, however, fundamental to today's buyer is not so much the price as price and quality of the object.

Buyers tend to purchase homes in the secondary market, so you can get the keys and begin to live, not to solve a few years, construction issues related to the future home. With regard to the primary market, there are popular cottages in the final stages of completion. With the current economic situation in the project include cottage community is better when the settlement has already been built, but does not yet have a final look. In this case, the buyer objectively evaluate that investment from the developer left a bit, and he will be able to complete the project on time. In this cottage will be sold at the price of progress of the object.
