Primary and secondary real estate market in Ukraine: how to choose?
What apartments are Ukrainians buying?
According to professionals, Ukrainians in 2018 prefer to buy apartments in new homes. For example, for sale of apartments in Kyiv for 2018god there was more on the primary real estate market, while the sale of apartments in Lviv was more dominant in the secondary market. When you buy an apartment in a new building, you acquire a home with a clean history. In the new apartment you can make repairs to your taste, choose the style and interior. Such apartments attract good communications.
Also, developers are thinking about how the owners of apartments do not overpay for utilities, houses are equipped with counters, built according to accounting rules. Houses have playgrounds, shops, sports complexes, etc. There is a huge number of advantages in buying an apartment in the new building, but there is also a huge minus.
When you buy a home in an unfinished house, you are not the owner of the apartment, but only the investor. Unfortunately, there are dishonest developers in the market who can sell one apartment several times or use other schemes for deception.
In Ukraine there is no Single Registry of unfinished apartments, therefore it is not realistic to check it.
As for the purchase of an apartment on the secondary market, plus the fact that the buyer acquires the rights to the property, and in this he is insured. There are also their pitfalls. First of all, the technical condition of the apartment, communication can be disturbed. It is not known how much money you will have to spend on repairs and on the restoration of communications. A large percentage of secondary housing in Ukraine is in an emergency. In addition, utility prices are much higher, as in old houses there is a great loss of heat and water.
When buying housing in the secondary or primary markets, turn to professionals, professional real estate agencies, they will help make the right choice and advise on all important issues.
