“American Dream” of every Ukrainian
The most attractive option for living in terms of comfort, security and social immersion today are cottage towns.
This is due to the stratification of society and the natural desire to protect themselves and society of their kind from the rest of society.
A cottage is not a cottage, but a house suitable for living throughout the year. The only drawback of this type of real estate is its price, which is not accessible to everyone. Most companies that offer real estate in closed towns, build two types of buildings – separate cottages and town houses. If everything is more or less clear with the cottage – this is a separate house, designed for one family, then a town house is an unusual concept for Ukraine.
This type of housing is a separate apartment house, combined into a single building. The houses adjoin each other, have adjacent side walls with the same type of neighboring houses and a separate entrance from the neighbors. Such houses are usually 2-3-story. Usually on the ground floor there is a hall, technical rooms and a kitchen. On the second – a living room, bedrooms, children’s rooms and an office. Each such apartment adjoins a small plot of land. The total area of the premises ranges from 100 to 350 square meters. m
“Town houses are a compromise between urban and cottage real estate,” experts say. “Despite the fact that there are enough such offers on the market, they are not in great demand. Most likely, this is in our mentality. Suburban real estate is associated with the buyer privacy and some intimacy, so he does not know how to behave in a dense private building “, writes” Business Week “with reference to” Komsomolskaya Pravda “.
Specialists divide cottage real estate depending on the area of buildings and the plots on which they are located, as well as on the price of land plots into 4 main classes: budget, economy, business and elite. Business category houses can be found in the nearest metropolitan suburbs – in Kiev Svyatoshinsky, Vasilkovsky, Vyshgorod districts, in Gostomel, Bucha, Pushcha-Voditsa. Economy class is located where the land is cheaper – in the 30-kilometer zone.
The main influence on the price of a cottage, as in the case of private houses, is provided by the “fashion” for a particular locality. Depending on this, the price of land changes, and the cost of cottages grows accordingly. At the same distance from Kiev, you can find cottages at 3 thousand dollars / sq. m, and 1 thousand / sq. m
Recently, in connection with the entry of new developers into the market, a slight decline in prices has begun. If before it was almost impossible to find a cottage cheaper than 1.5 thousand dollars / sq. m, now began to appear offers in the range of 800-1000 dollars. Some companies began to experiment, erecting houses using the so-called Canadian technology (the metal frame is sheathed with shields that are filled with insulation). In this case, it happens that the price drops to $ 500 per square meter. meter.
However, such proposals are not in high demand so far. This property is aimed at middle-income people, and this category of the population is the most cautious. They are ready to wait – to see how such houses will behave in the conditions of our winters, listen to the reviews of the owners and only then decide on a purchase. So in the case of a successful cold test next year, we can expect a boom in this particular segment of the market.
