Apartments in prestigious areas of Jerusalem cost less than on the Kiev periphery

In the midst of the New Year’s marathon, fate brought me to the same table with a married couple from Jerusalem, who arrived in warm Kiev in Israel to see for themselves the city where the parents of the spouses were born.

Netta and Arnie complained that supposedly in Jerusalem real estate is too expensive, and they cannot afford to move to a new building. First of all, Israel is a relatively small country, and housing supply is limited. Secondly, among wealthy Jews in the USA, France and Great Britain, it has become fashionable to have an apartment in Israel, preferably in Jerusalem, in its prestigious areas.

The floor that we choose. Living above 16 floors is dangerous for health – doctors say so

With documents – to professionals

At the office, try to feel confident and do not hesitate to ask for a license for the repair and construction works and company registration documents. Today, a company operating without a license may simply not live to see the end of your repair. In addition, the company’s working hours on the market should be at least three years — then there is a certain guarantee that your contractors already have “experience – the son of difficult mistakes”, and they won’t work out tactics for you.

In addition to the license, it makes sense to see the package of documents that you will receive from the company. There must be a contract agreement, an estimate, a resource sheet Continue reading
