Secondary housing market

The secondary housing market - an area where there are real estate transactions, in which the first were the owners. If the apartment was not acquired through one hand, the change of ownership, it can not be completely sure the legal purity of the transaction. The more the owners were at the apartment, the higher the likelihood of possible legal problems.

Second-hand housing market is attractive, first of all, its diversity and richness of choice. It represented a variety of apartment price categories and quality. Depending on the quality and price level are the following types of secondary housing:
substandard housing - the apartments, which are not equipped with all facilities (may not be water, sewage, central heating), in houses with no more than three storeys;
standard housing - is flat with adjacent rooms and kitchens of small squares in the model homes, with up to 16 floors;
improved housing - it is flat with isolated rooms and back rooms in typical homes, with more than 16 floors;
luxury housing - it is apartments in houses built on special projects, located in the central areas of the city and equipped with luxury amenities (underground parking, security).

With the purchase of secondary residences, should be tailored to suit its pricing. First, the price of secondary housing is highly dependent on where it is located. Apartments in downtown areas with well-developed infrastructure, will cost more than housing in the suburbs. Secondly, the cost of apartments in the secondary market depends on its condition and interior decoration. And finally, the most important feature of the pricing in the market of secondary housing is the rule: the greater the area of the apartment, the lower the cost per square meter in it.

Many of them are marked by plaques, narrating about the glorious history of the house, events, takes place in it, or its outstanding tenants. Their peculiarity consists in the fact that for a comfortable stay, they are suitable only after major repairs, as provided with outdated "family" utility, decoration and other materials. In this case, they certainly stand out favorably among the general mass of the buildings of the Soviet period originality, unconventional architectural solutions (both inside and outside the building), spacious squares. For typical projects did not exist, and each house has been copyrighted creation of the architect, his imagination, his "frozen music". With the right approach, ennobling and modern equipment, pre-revolutionary building is quite expensive and justified kokurentnosposobnym housing.

Apparently, at the time of Joseph Vissarionovich build "slack" was not permissible. Because most likely, these buildings are still surprised the townspeople of his monumental, impressive and durable. Even the "filling" of such buildings, including utility systems, in many cases behaves quite well for his age.

These flats are cheaper in the amount of rest for the simple reason that they have very little area. Hence the awkward layout, combined rooms, tiny hallway and kitchen. Heat and sound insulation in the homes of very low, and the reliability and durability of buildings is more doubtful. At one time this house was built at a record pace in huge quantities and pursued only one main goal - to ensure as quickly as possible, as much as possible the number of people a roof over your head.

They are the best of the buildings of the Soviet period, floor plans, large, compared to the "massive" housing areas, using the most modern, the period of construction, materials and technologies.
