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.

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
