Among the reasons for the growing popularity of elite apartments, experts say: the large volume of catch-uu demand, formed in 2014 – 2015, a low level of confidence in the banking system, as well as a limited number of offers on the market. So, for 2016 the number of apartments for sale in premium new buildings was reduced by 30%. Due to this, the premium segment became the only one in the real estate market, which in 2016 showed a price increase not only in UAH, but also in US dollars.
In the premium segment, the highest requirements are imposed on both the apartment and the house. Not only the Upscale residential district matters, but the ecological situation – the presence of of the multiple parks. Also of great importance are the variety and decoration of common areas, security and concierge service, the view, planning. Our customers have excellent reviews of Busov Hill LCD, located at 12 Buslovskaya Street, near the botanical garden, at Pechersk.

This house uses only panoramic windows from floor to ceiling, and the location on the hill provides stunning views of the garden, the Dnieper, the Monastery and the Monument Motherland, “- says Margarita Khoroshun, a top category consultant, Park Lane.
According to the expert, the stage of house readiness plays one of the key roles for buyers of expensive housing. Such objects are sold either on the threshold of commissioning, or already with ready-made documents, when the risks of investment are reduced to zero.
Such houses are not sold at the stage of a pit, and as a result, for their implementation the company must have its own funds.” This feature forced many developers to abandon plans to build premium housing in crisis times. Because of this, there is a deficit in the market today Quality projects, and as a consequence – increased demand for them among buyers, “explains the director of the company of the developer Zhitlobudinvest, whose project – LCD Busov Hill – in 2016 won the category” Best Residential Compound Lex premium class in Kiev “All-Ukrainian Award” Building Awards ”

It is interesting that the high requirements for the service and comfort of living in premium real estate are accompanied by the unwillingness of potential tenants to overpay for the maintenance of the apartment. Energy efficiency and home automation become important factor when choosing an apartment.

To help reduce utilities payments, there will be ultrahigh energy efficiency indicators for the building “- says the director of the company Zhitlobudinvest Igor Klepach.
According to forecasts, the deficit of premium housing will continue in 2017. In addition to high capital intensity, this will be facilitated by a shortage of land suitable for the construction of elite houses. “Now is a great time to invest in luxury properties .” The cost is just beginning to grow, while there are still a selection of apartments in decent projects.
