Summer recreation: the rental prices of housing in different regions of Ukraine

With the approach of summer, the Ukrainians are increasingly thinking about the rest of the city. And while the country house is not at each inhabitant of our country, there remains the issue of rental housing in the suburbs. Especially for the “Today” analytical service Internet sites free ads OLX has prepared an analysis of rental prices in the regions.

REGION AND NUMBERS. First and foremost, business analysts note that the average price of monthly rent of a country house for the last year declined in almost all regions of the country. For example, if the month’s rent in the Dnipropetrovsk region in may last year was worth 1728 UAH, then 2017, this figure fell by almost 30% and amounted to UAH 1230. It is worth noting that this is the most significant decline of all the regions, where experts gathered information. In the same Lviv region monthly rent fell by less than 1% from 1261 to 1266 UAH. Well, the most expensive region is traditionally Kyiv region, though the rent was down 3% to UAH 2832 2748.

According OLX, became popular in the countryside of Lviv region: if in may of last year there were only 9 ads this year registered a 19. Today are more willing to go and in the Odessa oblast — 46 ad 70. But in Dnipropetrovsk, Kharkiv and Kyiv region has lost in popularity, and most notably it was in the capital region here exactly a year ago, the Ukrainians have registered 902 ad, and now just 374. “In different regions the situation with the amount of offers different — explained to us in OLX. For example, in Kyiv and Kharkiv regions most proposals in March-April, in Odessa and Lviv regions in April. In the Dnipropetrovsk region — in the summer.” Indeed, already in March, a house in the Kiev 511 sentences. It is worth noting that a year ago these ads more than a thousand.

BELOW NOWHERE. Realtor Maxim Ermolenko called the reduction number of ads in the Kyiv region expected: “Blame the cold spring: if the early inhabitants of the capital were moved to the garden from late March, now just starting fees. And if the summer is cold, too, as forecasters predict, there is a risk that those wishing to live in the cottages will decrease by 20-40%”. In turn leading specialist real estate company SV Development Sergey Kostecki said that these numbers may be understated. According to him, in the Kiev region on all bases rented about 20 thousand homes. “Of course, here and short-term rental, and long term, small country houses and luxury villas, but the order numbers are something like this. Same thing in the Dnipropetrovsk region. But in the Lviv region of about 10 thousand sentences about the rent,” he says. Kostecki also explained to us why it is in the Lviv region declined slightly for the year prices. “There already was a pretty low-rent, lower nowhere. But in the Dnipropetrovsk region is usually overpriced. But it reduced the cost of rent some luxury housing, the budget remains at the same level” — sums up the expert.
